I think it is safe to say that most of us believe that to be successful in life that we need to work hard and that certainly can be true there is a HUGE difference between working hard and working to hard.
We often try to force things to happen thinking that is the way to get things done.
It's not our fault we are pretty much programed from a young age that this is what we have to do, but the universe only wants us to trust it and that it is working behind the scenes to bring that which we are looking to have in our lives to us.
NO amount of trying to force it to happen will make it happen any faster! It can be terribly hard for us to give up control of trying to make things happen but this is what we need to do.
The universe ALWAYS works on our behalf to bring us experiences that will facilitate our personal and spiritual growth and new understandings. We need to give up our need to control everything that happens in our life and let the universe work it magic.
When we do this the universe gets the green light and experiences tend to come to us much quicker than if we tried to control it. Yes it can be hard to trust the universe but if life isn't going quite how you like and you are anxious, stressed and there is little peace in your life, what do you have to lose?
Try it, you WILL LOVE the outcome!
