My Father used to say, “If it sounds too good to be true, it ALWAYS is!” In our age of quick-fix and immediate gratification, my Father’s words of wisdom have helped me stay my course. I remind my own children that it takes hard work and dedication to create anything of value. This isn’t easy to do when society and the media promote having just about anything at your fingertips. It may be promoted but it is full of false promises. Take this pill and all your problems will go away, play this game and it will fill you, let us give you money and all your debt will disappear. Too good to be true? Evidence proves the answer is yes.
Staying your course and sticking to a plan in reaching your goals isn’t as grueling as some may think. In fact, my experience has been that you get there quicker than attempting various schemes that distract you from your course, having to start all over again. Keep your eye on the prize, one foot in front of the other, and focus on what it is you want to accomplish. Is it a business, starting a family, living a healthier lifestyle? A plan needs to be mapped out and followed, and it doesn’t all need to happen in a day! I remind my clients that it takes patience and perseverance to truly meet their desires. If one is dealing with depression when they walk in my office, I don’t immediately turn to an anti-depressant for healing, we work on the daily practice of self-healing first. Do some feel impatient as they work through the process? Of course, and it is all part of their learning experience. Learning patience is a skill that gives one strength to meet their needs, keeping disappointment and expectations at bay. Trusting the power of intention and the vast universe opens the horizon for many gifts to come your way.
Sail your ship, when the storms come gather your crew, keep your hands on the wheel, use your appropriate sails, and allow the wind to guide you. You will coast smoothly into your destination.
