Q&A: ‘Should I work hard for what I want, or wait and trust the Universe?’

The Truth!

Question submitted via Formspring:
“If I try really hard to manifest something in my life, am I sending out a signal to the universe that I don’t trust in it?”

We have talked about the Law of Attraction many times, but this is an excellent question, that has come up again and again; even many of the so-called ‘experts’ don’t agree on the answer.


So, should you work hard, or sit still and wait for the God/The Universe to bring you what you want?  The answer is: both.

While it is absolutely possible that The Universe might miracle a pile of money into your living room, or that Mercedes might fall off the truck in front of your house, it’s is far more likely you’re going to have to exert at least SOME effort towards making it happen.

The secret, then, is this: do as much as you can, all the time, and mentally focus on the feelings your goal will give you, without resorting to worrying or stressing about it.   If you find yourself feeling anything other than excitement, or wondering why it hasn’t arrived yet, or stressing about if you are doing something wrong: stop!


What you want is to live in absolute alignment with the fact that what you want is manifesting right now, not some point in the future; if you focus on the fact that it’s coming, it will always be coming…not arriving!
I can tell you for certain, The Universe tends to take the shortest possible route, while helping the maximum number of people in the process of bringing your goal to you.   So, rather than stress about why it hasn’t arrived yet, try and find ways you can help more people in the process of manifesting what you want.

Stay focused, and do all you can, every single day; think of it as meeting the Universe half way.
And, remember that the Law of Attraction is only one of seven Universal Laws.   If you are really serious about creating what you want, make sure you are applying the other six!


You are great, and I love you!
