We seem to endlessly search for that success status, the epitome of happiness or expect to stumble upon serendipity daily but why? Today I’d like to help you understand than no matter how hard you work, how hard you look or how hard you try, you aren’t going to make something happen that is not supposed to happen. I don’t care who you think you are!!!
You are who you are, nobody else can be you but you cannot be anybody else either. We live in a world where we are overly influenced by others around us, especially if they have been granted with a successful or fame filled life journey. We see what they have and we want what they have. We proceed to investigate their plans, patterns, moves and ways of life to attempt to intercept the ‘secret’ to replicate what they do, so we too, can be just as ‘successful’.
Such influencers like ‘GARYVEE’ who blurt out about how hard they work and how the key to be successful and happy is to work harder than everyone else until you ‘make it’ are just preposterous. If you aren’t supposed to be the vice president of a large business, a captain of a professional football team or a famous musician, you aren’t going to be, end of. Life has a plan for you and you absolutely need to understand this.
So why would you want to ‘trust the universe’?
You have no choice BUT I do dare you to TRY your utmost to achieve something and succeed at it when its not on your path. Go ahead and waste your time and then when you realise it isn’t going to work come back here and try reading this again.
So if and when you have realised that all you can do is put your trust into the universe and allow your path to form within the present moment as you transcend through your journey then you need to just be. Just be and let things be. Let things grow and let things flourish naturally. Do not endeavour to be someone you are not or to do something you aren’t made to do, just allow the river of life to flow in its peaks and troughs.
Finally, happiness and success are merely states of mind and being. You shall not arrive at happiness as a destination, you also cannot purchase ANYTHING that will get you closer to it. Success, what is success? I think people define success as arriving at the place they always thought they were ‘supposed’ to arrive at. Do you personally postulate that there truly exists a divine consciousness or feeling down the line? A place that exists only in the future? How many people have you heard of or met in your life that have stumbled upon or have been granted this so called state of ‘nirvana’ you believe to exist? Nobody. People seem to believe there is some sort of race or challenge set out to be the first person to reach this state of being, yet it really doesn’t exist. The sad thing is, every era, every decade and every century people still insist on seeking this notional fabricated world, state of being or feeling that they will never obtain. Happiness and success exist only within the present moment, period. The present moment only exists in the ‘now’ which basically means right now! If you cannot feel happiness right this very moment then you are not going to fulfil this feeling at any point in the future with some imaginary car, house, person or material item. Happiness can be developed quite simply by being grateful in the present moment.
We can practice this by thinking about what we DO have instead of what we believe we DON’T have. I have this and that right now and this makes me feel grateful and happy. I have a life, a wife, a car, a home, a dog etc Just thinking of one simple thing can be enough to make you feel grateful. If you struggle then you are just ungrateful. You have to understand or experience that people don’t have anything at all in this world. I have travelled to several third world countries and I have first handedly witnessed people suffering. Human beings that have nothing at all, living on the street, with no food, water, living arrangements or family around them. Unless this is you then you do have something to be grateful for.
Trust that the universe will always guide you on to the right path always. Be a good person. Love others, including the ones you wish not to love. Be present and be grateful to truly experience happiness. Be you and be true. Understand that all things happen for a reason, whether it is part of your success, your failure or an extension of a lesson that you needed to learn. Have faith and trust in the process. You are a soul having a human experience. You are not unique and you are not separate from everyone else. We are all part of the same energy system, the same being and the same life force. We may have slightly different journeys but we are we as a whole, as a unity. We must work with what we have naturally and not against it. Let go of all fears, know that you are loved by the universe and allow it to guide you.
