People have come to me saying no matter how hard they try they can’t make “this or that” happen; can’t make ‘it’ work; run into walls at every turn. I always answer that it isn’t the goal they wish to achieve that’s being blocked; it’s the path they are taking to get there. The Universe is simply tapping them on the shoulder trying to get them to take a different route to the same goal.
I came across this quote by Confucius, “When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals; adjust the action steps.” It reminded me that when we have an objective to achieve and we seem to be immobilized at every turn, we need to look at what path we have chosen to get to where we wish to go. We are being reminded there is another way to reach our destination.
Whether this pertains to a relationship; a business plan; a social gathering, or implementing a lifelong dream; look at how you’re attempting to ‘make it work.’ If it’s not meant to be as you see it, the Universe will throw whatever it can in your path to get you to look at it in a different light. Simply adjust the energies of your actions and see what takes flight!
