I am A+ as a blood type; however, I am practicing to B+ in the present. As I sat contemplating happiness in the moment, I realized I had been wracking my brain on an internal conflict about the timing of a couple of my goals. Why was I accomplishing some goals far earlier than anticipated while coming too close to the deadline on others?
Haanel tells us, “In order to grow, we must obtain what is necessary for our growth,” and that, “man . . . exists, therefore, only in his relation to the whole.” Because “thought is creative,” I must “concentrate upon [my] power to create and find a logical basis for the faith which is in [me].” My “faith” in those dates was not realistic because they were (unknowingly to me at the time) set by outside influences. The ones that had been established by me alone and based upon natural laws were being accomplished faster than I even imagined.
Although I still want to and know I will reach those goals, I no longer have an unsettled feeling about the timing. Simply, “by keeping the thought in mind, it will gradually take tangible form. A definite purpose sets causes in motion which go out in the invisible world and find the material necessary to serve your purpose.”
Hey, who moved my goal posts?! Wait, that was me! And I have found peace and harmony in moving the dates.
