Understand the Law.
Every action leads to a reaction; for every effect, there is a cause. The beauty of these universal laws is that, once you understand them, you are able to more effectively manage your life. Once you grasp the power of your thoughts, words, and actions and their creative power in formulating your reality, you realize that there is no such thing as a mistake. The worst thing that can happen is that you conclude that you could have made a more effective choice given your intention. Sometimes it is only the consequences of your actions (the effects that you cause) that enable you to consider modifying your approach. It is the tuition of this school in which we are all enrolled (life!).
Take a moment to examine your life. What is it that is NOT working effectively? What is your contribution to the negative effects that you are experiencing? What might you do differently to be more effective? Focus on what you would like to create in its place and do what you can to move gently in that direction (leaving enough space to pick up some wisdom along the way). If you find yourself overwhelmed by the potential and possibility, simply think in terms of today. What would you like to create today? What is your intention?
Success or sabotage? Success is the natural result of living in the flow of natural law; be clear about what you want and keep your heart, ears, and eyes open for the guidance that will take you there.
Is this going to be an incredible day? What do you intend to create for yourself today?
