Are You in a Race With No Finish Line?
by Jane Powell
“It takes goals and motivation to win the race.”
Do you know what is important to you? If not, you may have set unreachable goals, or may not have set goals at all. Without meaningful goals, life is much like a race with no finish line. There is never any reason to celebrate!
If, on the other hand, you set and achieve meaningful goals, you have many reasons to rejoice. Remember, even small goals count. You get to enjoy many moments of satisfaction and celebration. Your self-esteem and confidence get a boost, because you have proven to yourself that you are capable.
Determine what is important to you, and resolve to pursue your goals with passion and persistence. The race is about to begin – and you want to win it!
Are you ashamed of your failures?
“Find the lessons within your failures.”
It’s unrealistic to expect to have success in meaningful things you do and not have failures along the way. It’s the way of life.
Instead of fighting it or feeling ashamed or guilty, accept this with grace. Look for the lessons to be learned – lessons not to be repeated and lessons showing you how to do it right the next time.
Any failures that you experience can be transformed into something of worth. It all depends on how you look at it.
If you remain focused and determined, these lessons become stepping-stones to the success that you seek.
An exquisite life
This can be the most beautiful, fulfilling day you’ve ever known. For that to happen, you have to allow it.
You have to let go of your obsession with struggling and striving for more, and enjoy the beauty of what already is here. You have to stop thinking that some new richness will fulfill you, and fully experience the richness that is already yours.
Instead of fighting your way through each moment, open yourself to the possibilities for joy. Instead of focusing so intently on what you need, dive deeply into the value of all you have.
There is a unique and exquisite life that is already yours. All you have to do, is thankfully and gracefully let it unfold.
Whatever your situation, whatever your circumstances, there is immeasurable value to be experienced in the authentic living of your life. In the beautiful truth of who you are, there are endless possibilities for magnificent fulfillment.
Let the full truth of your life unfold. And let this truly be the best day ever.
Your words are so true.
