Working with Law, Persistence Necessary?

My good friend Marnie sent the following bit of humor to me because I talk so much about the Laws of Success and how things just work out better when you live in alignment with them. For example, when you’re in the success-law-abiding groove:

  • You find the perfect parking lot when you need it.
  • You obtain the money you need, sometimes from unexpected sources.
  • You meet the right person at the right moment who has the solution to your problem.
  • Serendipitous events happen more regularly, even predictably.

However, it can leave a person wondering whether the laws somehow override the basic fundamental principles of tenacity, and persistence.

After reading the following short story she sent, you decide:

car ladyAfter starting a new diet I altered my drive to work to avoid passing my favorite bakery.

I accidentally drove by the bakery this morning, and as I approached, there in the window were a host of goodies.

I felt this was no accident, so I prayed … “Lord, it’s up to you, if you want me to have any of those delicious goodies, create a parking place for me directly in front of the bakery.”

And sure enough, on the eighth time around the block, there it was! God is so Good!

(“Maxine” is a cartoon character by John Wagner of Hallmark.  She has a fan page at http://www.facebook.com/maxine)

So yes, persistence still may be required, but an understanding of the laws can help you have the tenacity and belief that the persistence will eventually pay off.  Without that guarantee, too many of us would run out of steam, a little too soon.

This woman’s story is also an example showing “You get what you ask for” – even if it isn’t for your good.

So as you choose your goals, take the time to consult your heart / gut instinct / inspiration / spiritual guidance (whatever you want to call it) to find out first if the thing you ask for is for your best and highest good.  When you know that it is, then it’s all the easier to believe you’ll have God’s help in obtaining it.

Without that assurance, your persistence will probably still pay off, but when all is said and done, you just may wish that it hadn’t.
