Sometimes when we think about our future, we can get anxious, worrying about what will happen next and what our future holds. It’s in these times when it’s helpful to have faith that things are happening as they should be. While this might sound trite and does require you have some sense of belief in a higher power, it can provide a sense of peace.
While this does not mean that we can slack off and just have faith that things will work out anyway, it does require that as we’re working hard, we tap into the idea that there is force larger than us at hand. You could call this the “power of the universe,” “good luck,” ” the power of God” or whatever else speaks to you. It’s the idea that if we work hard, be true and authentic, the universe will provide.
If you’re a control freak, like me, this is really hard. But even for the most controlling person, it can lead to a sense of calm and peace. Try it today. As you start to feel anxious or worried about what lies ahead, say to yourself, “Things are as they are meant to be.” Take a few deep breaths. Then put your nose back to the grindstone and get to work creating your future.
