The Power of Drive

Have you ever asked yourself how we achieve anything? Is it luck, is it will-power, is it destiny or fate? Before we tackle something, we start with the desire to get it done; with a goal or a dream, and then we muster the will-power to manifest it. It turns out that you can accomplish whatever you want as long as you are willing to pay the price. But sometimes the price is unfortunately quite high. 

Take Steve Jobs as an example. At the end of his career he had built the biggest global powerhouse there is - Apple - but in-between his company was losing out to Microsoft for decades; he got even fired from his job and had to rebuild himself with different endeavors. His tireless pursuit of his goal and his perfectionism also drove many people into the ground, and at the end probably contributed to his own death. Would you ever pay a price that high for manifesting your dreams?

Please observe yourself.  If you always dream of reaching a goal and it never happens, maybe deep down inside you are not really ready. Maybe you have some conflicts that hold you back. Maybe you are fooling yourself about your true motivation. A few smaller scale examples of successes that are worthwhile: are you willing to help your children succeed?  Do you have what it takes to are a career for yourself? Are you willing to work hard on your romantic relationship even if the going gets tough? Do you take the necessary actions to have a spiritual, and eventually happy,  life?

The Law of Attraction states that you can have what you aspire as long as you are conflict-free about your goals. The Universe is always here to help you achieve your goals. As God's co-creator, all tools of creation and means are at your disposal as long as you are crystal clear about your aspirations and have the drive to see it through. But unless you are willing to pay the price and do a little soul-searching about your motivation, no one can help you. The Universe just reacts to who you think you are on a conscious and subconscious level. 

The power of drive determines the motion toward the goals we wish to achieve. When we have this willingness, naturally, we will pay attention to what matters to seeing through our dream. Suddenly all the necessary information, and the means to get it done, will magically show up. Obstacles arise to either help us with finding a new perspective to succeed, or to overcome the inner resistance and conflicts than we still carry around. Just as we manifest our brain child, our creation helps us identifying who we truly are. 

Observe yourself and see if you have put up obstacles on your road to success. Identify the areas where you might be conflicted and resolve your issues. Where there is a will, there will be a way. That is the Law of Attraction and the Power of Drive in action. Observe how once you change gears, your dreams will come true pretty quickly. Enjoy creating, and enjoy manifesting yourself in the process.
