Stop Trying Too Hard

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” ~ Lao Tzu. When I was in my 20’s I had a friend who was desperate to get married. She wanted it more than anything. She wanted it too much. She was so intense when she met guys that she scared them off. When she turned 30 she gave up. She decided that she was OK with being single. She was too weary of the ‘hunt’ and she really did seem to have peace about it. But, then the weirdest thing happened. As soon as she gave up the notion that she HAD to get married, she met Mr. Right.

Are you trying too hard for your dream? Are you desperate for it? If so, you may be sending a vibe that is unintended and undesired. Relax, enjoy the ride. Let go any unrealistic expectations of success that may be causing you undue stress. Stop comparing yourself to others and compare yourself to your yesterday self. Work daily toward your dream, but don’t let it overwhelm you.

A clenched fist cannot hold anything, so relax the grip and open your hands. Watch what happens.
