In my last few posts, I’ve stated that we human beings almost always look for the solution to the problems and challenges we face in a place where the answer cannot be found. I also stated that this results from a misunderstanding of the fundamental law of cause and effect. I concluded that if you want to be able to consistently resolve the challenges you face, you must learn to look at life and business from the proper perspective, which can be represented as: be –> do –> have. In other words, who you are being when you do whatever you do is what determines what you have.
In each of the last 5 posts, I discussed practical steps you can take to fundamentally alter who you’re being. Let’s review:
- Look at every person in your life as a gift;
- You must heal your limiting beliefs, especially the ones you have about money;
- Spend your time thinking about what you want;
- Choose your attitude, i.e. choose love over fear; and
- Watch what comes out of your mouth.
Here’s the final suggestion in this series: take actions that are peaceful and compelling!
Going back to our formula of be -> do -> have, the middle step is to “do.” While it would be nice if you could just sit back and relax and have everything you want happen with no action on your part, the fact of the matter is you do have to act. But the key is not so much what you do but how you do it. I’m suggesting you should start with two premises: the first being that the Universe is on your side and the second being that you really aren’t smart enough to figure it all out and know exactly how what you want is going to happen.
Now before you get insulted by that statement, consider the reality that everything you now know was learned from your past experiences. So, by definition, no matter how smart you are, your knowledge is fundamentally limited. But the Universe, on the other hand, has infinite intelligence. It contains all the knowledge that ever was and ever will be. Just trust me on that one. So, your job is to just go with the flow. Pick one thing, anything, and get into action. Do what is both peaceful and compelling, because it is only then that you will tap into the infinite intelligence of the Universe.
Allow everything to just unfold naturally. Don’t effort and struggle. It’s not necessary. Keep reminding yourself that how it’s all going to happen is not up to you. And here is the part we tell our clients that they struggle with at first: just trust the process. Surrender to it. Just give up the need to plan it all and know in advance how it’s all going to happen. At first glance, that might seem like crazy advice: let go, let it all unfold naturally, trust it will all turn out just fine! But think about it. Wouldn’t you rather have life be easy and fun than hard and a struggle. Maybe you’ve been trying to do it your way all your life. How’s that working out for you? Maybe it’s time for a new approach.
When you really stop and think about it, the Universe is amazing. Plant an acorn and you get an oak tree. A sperm and an egg come together and out pops a baby. Put corn seeds in the ground and you get corn. The law of cause and effect in action. It’s all perfect and designed for your good. Why not just follow the 6 steps outlined here, have fun, surrender to the process, and allow the Universe to bring you all your hearts desires. Think it can’t be that easy? It really can be. And why not allow us to coach you through the process. With our help, it’s a slam dunk. Give us a call at 714-309-1099 and let’s talk.
