It is of utmost importance, in hectic situations, when you think you have had enough, and when your momentary frenzy dances in its highest values, to calm your annoyance with a new dose-shot of patience. Why immerse into nerve-racking emotions or produce negative thoughts when that could adversely influence you and tip off the already fragile balance?
It is easier said than done, isn’t it? C’est la vérité absolue, mon ami. But it is also very true that in the most unexpected moments, faith intervenes to disperse the gathering clouds.
Is it really faith, though?
Or, rather, a combination of your most inner senses, a hint of luck, tucked into the leprechaun’s earthen jar, and, most of all, the patience we just highlighted?
If you had been as specific as possible, that jar would have been discovered much earlier.
If you had not received something which you thought you wanted, this means that you had not craved it as you may believe you had.
How crazy that sounds?
Do not criticise yourself too much. That is, actually, more common than you probably imagine it is.
How to deal with this and work towards success?
Patience and Being as Specific as Possible
Armed with patience, we already possess a powerful weapon. Now, we need a good strategy to execute in order to achieve the desired things. The best way to explain it is by exemplifying.
Each and every one of us has, at some point in life, thought one or more of the following:
- “I wish to be rich”.
- “I wish to find a good job”.
- “I wish a great boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife”.
- “I wish for a car”.
What is wrong, or rather – not enough – in all of these wishes?
It is not the verb “want” or “wish”. Wishing is not bad, as millions of people will tell you. The problem here is that the wish is not at all specific.
How rich do you want to be?
Richness could vary from a dollar to millions, from a piece of paper to a house on the beach.
When do you want to be rich – today, tomorrow, next year, in 20 years? How do you see that to be achieved?
Just by wishing for it won’t do the “magic”.
What kind of job is good for you? When do you want to find it? Why do you want to do this? Where?
These motivating questions should be answered before you make the specific wishes in order to realise them.
Here are some examples of (a) more specific wish(es):
- “I wish to earn €38, 745 by 18th November 2016”;
- “I wish to find a job by (specific date or month) in (a specific company and city even) that would give me the chance to apply my excellent organisation and communication skills. It would provide me with opportunities to meet with inspiring people and work with top-notch managers” (you can elaborate further, and further, and further).
- “I wish to find a life partner by (specific date or month) that is (characteristics you desire to see in your future husband or wife), who speaks many languages, has (hobbies, interests), etc.
You got the idea, didn’t you?
Write It All Down
I suggest you write it all down – by writing, the things better stick in your mind, and it calls on the whole universe to help you.
Write without any constraints (as if you are a 3-year old), but with the mind of an adult – i.e. have no limits.
Don’t get me wrong here. I am not saying that money will start pouring straight from the sky nor will girls or guys queue in line to meet you.
I am saying that there will be a plenty of opportunities and likelihoods that faith (call it the Universe, God, luck, or whatever you like) will send to us. Make sure you are all ears (and eyes) to grasp on each and every one of those. It is as easy as that – patience and specific wishes.
Personally, I have wished for several things in this specific way and all of them happened. And, if you have even a tiny grain of doubt, hide it well – it’s only holding you back.
Are you ready to wish? Go ahead, you might as well get it.
