Your life Path – For you only

Introduction

Often people travel the path of the least resistance. By nature most seek that which is easy, even when the path with resistance is better for them; they do this, knowing which path they should go. The easy route is not always best. Life path that will make us better, will always have some resistance. We are faced with decisions every day on what course to we should take. There are no shortcuts in life. Shortcuts will rob you when it comes to reaching the desired destination. It affects both life quality and life experiences. You just won’t get to the area in life you want to.

Think for a moment, what path have you taken for your life? Is it getting you to where you want to go in life, or are you getting nowhere fast? The path you take will lead somewhere. Be thoughtful when choosing your path, because it will lead you to your lifelong destination. You must know where you are going to, or you won’t be able to get there. Do you know where it is that you should go in life?

The Path of the Least Resistance

Pressure break out of an area of weakness or of the least resistance. In life, the path of the least resistance should not be taking. It can cause disruption in your life. Your goal is to become better in life not weak. Your life path will be a challenge, but it is the path you supposed to be on for life. When you are familiar with where you are going, the resistance has only a little effect and traveling your life path goes a little faster and smoother. ThereĀ are things that can sidetrack you and there will be obstacles along the way. These are times that you will have to go at a slower. There will also be those who will hinder your progress. The temptation to take the path of the least resistance continuously, be a challenge. But you are to purposely avoid the path of the least resistance. The path that can’t get you to your life destination.

Over the Horizon

Have you been so close that you can taste it so to speak, that’s really close. The anticipation that comes from knowing that you are almost there. Knowing what is waiting for you over the horizon. Knowing what your end result should be, is a strong motivator. It keeps you moving toward the end with anticipation. It gives you a determination above the norm. What a relief it is to see your destination off at a distance. Your victory is in site. You will get there by choosing the right life path. How sweet it will be, and what a relief.

Life accomplishments give a good feeling and are always worth your best effort. Knowing that you arrived and you didn’t give up along the way. What a feeling of joy you will have.

Life is an adventure, that is full of excitement, twist, and turns. Life splendor can go unnoticed sometimes when traveling along its path. There is so much that can be appreciated in your lifetime. The blessing that comes each and every day are often unnoticed. Even the rough spots along your life path can be counted as a blessing because they often make one better, and stronger. Endurance through it all pays off, you will enjoy accomplishments over your life path.

The tragedy of this will be failing to learn along the way. We can enjoy the moment that God’ great creations teach us every day. If we fail to embrace the great diversity He has placed in each of us, is most tragic. It is such a loss to mankind.

Along our life path we may have started with a certain characteristic, but ended up being a totally different person. It has been said that “a lesson is not learned until behavior has changed”. Enjoy along your way, enjoy learning from your life.

Keep Going Until You Get There

Writing this I thought about a story that might help us see the importance to keep going on our life path. Imaging, if a savage beast was after you. You run as fast as you can down the path so the beast would not catch you. You begin to get weary and the beast begins to gain ground on you. Then you give up and stop and surrender your life to the beast. The beast catches you and confesses, “If you had not stopped I wouldn’t have caught you, because I can’t go another step.”. Victory is the reward of continuing to the end, never, ever go backward.

Starting and stopping won’t get you anywhere; you won’t make it to the finish line. Be both consistence, and persistent. A steady pace will take you far. You don’t have to go at a speed of light, but you have to be consistent. You will have to go through all the tough spots. You will have to be committed. Your life is worth your effort to keep on keeping on until you reach the end.

Conclusion

Your life path is important, and shouldn’t be taken lightly. You make the journey, you become better and stronger. You become a benefit to others. You won’t be a liability. Your life path is making you able to be a super servant leader, that we all were born to be. No one can travel our life path for us. We have to go down our own individual path. Your life path can be lonely at times, and sometime we may even want to quit. But, something that down inside of us, that is screaming to come out of us to serve, to explore, to grow and to mature into our individual purposes that push you to continue.

At the end of the path, there are those who are waiting for you. Ready to receive what you have to give to them. To make their life better, happier, and safer.

You have learned well, and you won’t hesitate to be a servant to that which you have become, and will be a servant leader to that which your life path has gifted you with. Many blessing will flow from and to you. You are a master of it, and it is a master of you. You have truly arrived.

Expectation – what do you expect

What do you expect? In all areas of life, there is an expectation; and it should be, as long as it’s realistic. The expectation that we have on our selves and those we place on other people should be fair. When you place too high of an expectation on others you set yourself up for disappointment. Your expectation might or might not perfectly fit another person. Unfortunately, that’s often done. People should never settle for less than what they can reasonably expect. When shooting for the stars it is okay if you only hit the moon, but do aim high. Our challenges make us better, and enable us to succeed. Meet your expectations head-on. Don’t back down.

It is on you

Your expectation should be set by you. Trying to live up to someone else’s expectation that contradicts yours is a mistake. That’s like trying to live someone else’s life, which is most miserable, and all but impossible. You do you, better than anyone else. Having high expectations is okay but unrealistic ones will be destructive. The same can be said about expectations that are too low. You should always challenge your self above what you think you could normally do; not easy, and not unrealistic. Expect the best for you. Get to know really well, what you are able to do, and go for it with a passion.

High expectations are always a plus. You should not allow anything less than what you expect. For instance, you can expect and or demand respect along with being respectful. You can expect to be treated fairly. You can expect to get what you pay for or what you asked for (don’t give me a lemon when I asked you for a peach.) It is up to you to proclaim that which you expect. It is up to you to go for it.

What you can do

Determine what you can do and be your own motivator. You make the decision to go, or the choice not to. It all about how much it is worth to you. Expectation can change. Life events can shift, move or eliminate expectations. Don’t position yourself to look back and make statements like “I once wanted to do such a thing”. Never surrender to a point of lowering your expectation. It is important to know what they are, keeping your focus on what your expected end result should be.

Your limit is what you believe you are capable of. I believe that most people can do better than they imagine when they make an effort; if they would try just a little harder. It is amazing how far you can go just by being consistent one step at a time. Each individual has to make their own steps. You can go beyond your expectation when you put work into it; simply roll up your sleeve and get it done.

Don’t try to get off the hook

You can’t take the easy route. You can’t quit when it gets tough. Don’t settle for anything less than your realistic expectation. Settling for less won’t get it done and it won’t produce for you. Believe that you can do what you expect out of you. Push your self-pass:

  • Confrontation
  • Doubt
  • Nay Sayers
  • Circumstances
  • Challenges

Lowing your expectation out of fear or a lack of discipline will cause you to come up short. It can also bring emotional trauma. It is not a good feeling or a desired outcome to know you did not give your best. Knowing that what you did was not good enough. Always live up to your personal expectation.

When you learn that you are very capable of your expectation, doubt will vanish. You will find yourself doing better as you gain confidence in your capability. The more you expect of yourself, the greater the potential of getting to the area you want to be in life; to be the person you desire to be. It is a great accomplishment to have done those things you wanted to. You refused to accept anything less. Your number one priority is to get what you expect.

Alteration

In reaching for your expectations, adjustments may have to be made. Everything just won’t work for you. Flexibility is a trait that only a few people are able to master. It like the saying, “it more than one way to skin a cat”, or “work smarter, not harder”. These actions won’t take away from your expectation. Improvements are always a plus. It may be several ways to get across a road, the only objection would be, is to cross safely. Don’t be stuck in one way of doing things, another one may work better.

All changes are not good. Don’t make changes that will alter what your end result will become. The things you do should compliment your expectation. Remain focus and keep moving toward the result that you are seeking for. If changes do not compliment your expectation, look for another way that will get you to your destination, your expectation. Go for what you want and make no compromises.

Conclusion

Your expectation is an important part of your development. It is what liberates you from a bondage of things that has nothing to do with who you are becoming. They are the driving force of your life successes. It is you who are accountable for them. You can’t depend on others to do that which it is yours to do. Yes, others may play a part if they choose to but it belongs to you. So:

  • What are you expecting today?
  • Is it your expectation or someone else?
  • Is it truly what you want?
  • Is it who you are?

No one should know the answers to those questions better than you. They are yours. They will keep you on the right course. These are the detailed reason you should stay on the path of expectation. I encourage you and expect you to become your expectation.
