Are you focusing on the right things? We are all successful at the things we put our mind to. Trouble is we often put our mind to the wrong things and achieve success in the opposite direction to which we intended.

Personal Challenges

Many of the thoughts for early May, in this series, have focused on succeeding at personal challenges. Also articles have talked metaphorically about the road traveled. The point of these thoughts has been to look at all that is possible and not be limited by what you may or may not have done in your past. Life is a journey, even if we live in the same house our entire lives and never leave the city you were born in.

You are not in entire control of your journey because we have to interact with others all along the journey. Some of these interactions are desirable, like having a life partner, others are forced on us by circumstances like dealing with the boss at work, but the truth is human lives need these; all of them; they are essential to life. We can never be in total control, even if we want to be. If you feel that you MUST be in control then this can be quite a challenge for you to understand that there are times you must give that up in order to develop the relationships you need in life.

The Power of the Universe

There are certainly powerful forces around in the world that we live in and we all tap into them during each day of our life, either in a positive or negative way.

Can we use these powers for our own benefit? Sure we can and we do all of the time. They are in tune with what you are thinking, the trouble is it is all too easy to allow negativity to impact us. A negative thought seems twice as powerful as a positive one. That little imp that sits on your shoulder telling you bad things needs to be flicked off its perch and left in the ditch at the roadside.

Irrespective of your faith, and even if you are an atheist, you can connect to these powers. It is all a matter of understanding how to use them and making them work for you.

Those red lights I have talked about can turn to green with the power of your own mind. It is simply a case of focusing on what you need to happen. Trouble is people focus on things then don't need and collect more troubles on the way.
