It is normal for human beings to have desires. It is helpful to put your intentions out there, by either writing them down, on a piece of paper, or by uttering them. It is good to visualize that which you desire, as this will motivate you, and help you to focus. But if you will not act upon those intentions, your dreams will not come true. You can dream all day about your goals; you can speak about them to everybody! Until you decide that you will take real action-steps towards your vision, it will not be fruitful!
And this goes for anything: education, finances, health, or relationships. People emphasize too much the need to express your intentions, and it is OK. But if you will not do something practical about what you secretly wish – it will per! The key is balance. Learn how to balance those desires with the right things to support it. Learn how to work and play, to save money and to invest, to connect with people, but to have your meditation time, also.
Persevere! Those who succeed are not better; they are just more determined. Remember that you can shape your life the way you want – and stop blaming others for your failures. The universe, God, the angels are with you, no matter whom you may be. The fact that you exist is the ultimate proof that you are needed, wanted, and blessed. If this universe self-regulates in an amazing way, then, your existence is not a coincidence. You live – that is the greatest gift! Make it worth it!
