… does NOT lead to success.

Action born out of inspiration, does.

As humans we try and muscle our way through life. We force actions and we force our agenda onto our own timelines and we wonder why the actions we take do not yield the desired outcomes we seek.

If you do not feel inspired to take an action, don’t take it. Wait on it. Not feeling inspired to take an action is a clear indication that you are not aligned with the action you need to take. Take a time out —  take a reset — go take a nap  — go for a walk in nature — go seek some inspiration. Once you find a bit of inspiration, you will align with your higher guidance and then you will naturally be called to take the exact actions that will yield the desired outcomes you seek. 

It’s an inspiration game. Action alone will not yield success. Action that is born out fear, anxiety, desperation or struggle will be met with much resistance. This is because action can only take you so far in life. It’s a lower dimensional means of manifestation.

When an action comes from a place of passion, excitement, enthusiasm and inspiration, it will energetically charge the action that you are taking and thus yield the positive outcome you seek. 

Vibration trumps action. If the energy behind the action is not igniting the action, it will fall flat. Action born out of struggle never leads to success. If struggle is behind your action, it’s destined to follow in that direction. Never force anything. If you don’t feel inspired, don’t do it. Wait until the moment of inspiration comes. Save your energy — once you’re sufficiently inspired, you can channel that energy into your action and watch the magic unfold.

images… DOESN’T make them happen for you.

Learning to relax into your life does.

We always think we have all the answers, but in reality, we seldom do. Learn to see the patterns. Learn to see when something is not working for you and be able to walk away from it.

Life is a balance between grace and effort. You need to put forth the effort to achieve anything in life, but you also need to be able to abandon efforts when the results continually prove undesirable. Learning to let go of the outcome with a sense of ease and grace is one of our greatest tools to achieving the life of our dreams.

Pushing and pushing doesn’t make you stronger, it weakens the very fabric you are trying to uphold. The answer is NEVER in forcing things to be a certain way, the answer is in learning to accept that there may be a different way that you have not thought about. True strength is not found in force, but in the ability to step back and allow. Learning to allow life to happen instead of just forcing your agenda on it will ensure that you receive the best outcome for your highest good.

Don’t force an issue. If it isn’t working for you, back off and look at it from another perspective. Are you more interested in being right or doing the right thing? If your ego cannot help you find your way, the ability to step back and change perspective will.

You can use your free-will to force an outcome for yourself or you can step back and allow fate to bring you to exactly where you need to be. Which one do you think will make you most happy? Remember, we don’t always know what is right for us. Stepping back can assure us of the opportunity to get a clear perspective. Stop forcing things to happen and start enjoying the journey of your life. You might be pleasantly surprised.
