The surest way to become Tense, Awkward, and Confused is to develop a mind that tries too hard—one that thinks too much.
— Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh
The universe will help us, but we need to do our part as well. Here’s an acronym, My Part, to help you remember what it means to do that.
Too often, we tell ourselves the only way to get from point A to point B—or Z—is to tense up, obsess a little (or a lot), and live in fear and anxiety until what we want takes place.
That isn’t the path to success. It’s the path to fear and anxiety.
Accept. Relax. Breathe. Let go. Trust yourself, God, and the universe to manifest the best possible destiny when the time is right for you.
God, help me make the journey from fear and control to letting go and stepping into my true power.
