We are intended to be in relationship with the ongoing movement of life. But when you look at life as though nothing will change, it won’t. The more you push away what you don’t want, the more you keep it in place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xn8iQ8D8H_o&t=14s
It isn’t our “plans” to improve ourselves that empower the changes we know are needed in our lives; it is our willingness to suffer what we must that makes good our wish, that delivers us to our intended goal.
When it comes to true success in this life — regardless of whatever world it is in which we strive for excellence — there is no greater ability than to be able to do what we don’t want to do, when we don’t want to do it, and, in all cases, to do it well.
