Perhaps it would be better stated, regardless of the situation, if we said that you cannot, nor should you ever give up, when adversity throws a kink into your plans. There are many ways that people interfere with their own success. Sometimes, it might be that you become too arrogant, too rigid in your views of how the picture should unfold. Is it possible that you are an excuse-maker, caused simply from a feeling that something might be too easy? Not everything in life has to come in a difficult way. In fact, if you begin to expect that good--or even great things--should come to you in the most simple and straightforward way, then you will begin to re-teach your mind to accept it for what it is.
We want to leave this message by asking you to look back at what might have been and see if there was something you could have done to change the outcome. How about looking at the same situation and checking to see if there is an action you can take now to redirect what you want towards yourself. Frequently, we tell you to be proactive, not reactive. Spirit will help you to move forward. Believe, believe, believe! These are the spoken words of Spirit.
