Why We Don’t Get What We Want Immediately! A Lesson in Patience!

We want it now! Why wait! Over the last few generations we have become a Nation of “I want it now!” Our parents perhaps didn’t have it easy………..times were hard…………..they have to work for everything…………..it took time. They understood the wait. They appreciated the reward at the end…..after the work done to deserve it!

Ah! But not us! They showered us with the things they didn’t have. They wanted an easier life for us. So we’re spoiled!

Perhaps the happiest ones of us are those who had to work for what they have. They earned it! They know what it takes. But most of all they learned!! And thus they are happy and proud of what they have because of what they did!

A good friend wanted to know how to get what he wants in life. I told him. A month went by…………two………..four………….still it didn’t happen. Why not? Doesn’t the “secret” method I told him work? Yes, it does…………just not on our schedule…………but WHY?

The BIBLE says, “Ye shall be as GODS………Ye shall move mountains!” Jesus did it! He walked on water…………..he said it, bam! It happened! Why can’t we?

In order to understand that question, we have to consider a lot of truths:

1. We have been conditioned from birth that we can’t. We must depend on somebody else to do it……….to make it happen. Therefore we don’t think we can do it.

2. When we pray or say what we want, we aren’t specific enough. In order for things to change we must be VERY specific about what we want or what we want to happen!

3. When a situation or any thing is be created or to change……….the more complicated it is, the longer it may take for all of the elements involved to get in line or order for it to be possible. Example: If you decide you want a car and pray for a car………..you may get a car………….but it may not be what you really wanted. What you really want is a hot shot Mustang Boss……….but you just asked for a car…………….and you got a Fiat Smart Car. Your fault! You only asked for a car………………and that what you got………..a car! See??

So in short…………..yes, you can do it. Decide what you want or what changes you want………..BE VERY SPECIFIC…………….Believe you can do it…………ask for it (pray or whatever you want to do……….make a list!) and then wait! Be patient! It will come……….and in its own time! Not yours! Be strong……….ask everyday………repeat the desires……………UNTIL one day your focus shifts to something else……….a new book, a new person (neighbor, person at the gym, person on a boat or plane) and one day you forget to ask………….then a week goes by and you remember that you haven’t read your list………..or asked your prayer! So maybe you ask again and review your list!

AND when you least expect it, the changes start being evident and what you want is there! And then you BELIEVE! But alas you’ll be tested…..time and again! Just remember, you know the secret…………..IT IS NOT A SECRET! You can do it!

If you don’t like what you’ve got…………….change it! Just remember to be patient!

P.S. There is another fact in operation here………..based on physics! If you’re interested let me know.

“And that’s the truth!”………..Lillie Tomlin (Edith Ann)……..and I’m stick’n to it! ral
