About Mistakes

Monday, March 16, 2009

If you feel that you are not in the right vocation, do not act too hastily in trying to get into another one. The best way, generally, to change business or environment is by growth.

Do not be afraid to make a sudden and radical change if the opportunity is presented, and you feel after careful consideration that it is the right opportunity; but never take sudden or radical action when you are in doubt as to the wisdom of doing so.

There is never any hurry on the creative plane; and there is no lack of opportunity.

When you get out of the competitive mind you will understand that you never need act hastily. No one else is going to beat you to the thing you want to do; there is enough for all. If one place is taken, another and a better one will be opened for you a little farther on; there is plenty of time. When you are in doubt, wait. Fall back on the contemplation of your vision, and increase your faith and purpose; and by all means, in times of doubt and indecision, cultivate gratitude.

A day or two spent contemplating the vision of what you want, and in earnest thanksgiving that you are getting it, will bring your mind into such close relationship with the Supreme that you will make no mistake when you do act.

There is a mind which knows all there is to know; and you can come into close unity with this mind by faith and the purpose to advance in life, if you have deep gratitude.

Mistakes come from acting hastily, or from acting in fear or doubt, or in forgetfulness of the Right Motive, which is more life to all, and less to none.

As you go on in the Certain Way, opportunities will come to you in increasing number; and you will need to be very steady in your faith and purpose, and to keep in close touch with the All Mind by reverent gratitude.

Do all that you can do in a perfect manner every day, but do it without haste, worry, or fear. Go as fast as you can but never hurry.

Remember that in the moment you begin to hurry you cease to be a creator and become a competitor; you drop back upon the old plane again.

Whenever you find yourself hurrying, call a halt; fix your attention on the mental image of the thing you want, and begin to give thanks that you are getting it. The exercise of GRATITUDE will never fail to strengthen your faith and renew your purpose.

I love this! Gratitude is the key to everything becoming manifest, through our joyful acknoledgement of the Unconditional Love of our Creator force, and that all we need, is love, purity of intent, and clear path to that which we ask. It is given us through our faith, in the knowing that having asked, it is already given.

I like this one too. It really helped me to feel more relaxed about my goals and dreams. I hadn't realized just how hard I was pushing myself to do everything all at once, really well, and in a hurry.

I agree! I think that gratitude is the key because it shows we are RECOGNIZING what we are being given. If we are too busy being whiny, or competitive or put our energy towards feeling LACK, we miss what we are actually being handed on a beautiful silver platter each and every day! Once you get into the habit of being grateful, you truly realize how abundant your life is and it magnifies.

Shirley, you have a point about being relaxed! Ha ha ha! I wish on stars at night and sometimes I catch myself saying, "OK God..any day now!" Sigh. I guess my path is long and I'm gonna be on it awhile so may as well be patient!
