How to Achieve Your Goals Instantly

by Lynn A. Robinson, M.Ed.

(Hint: Patience Required)

I am an impatient person. I don't like that I am, and I try to work on this aspect of myself constantly. I remind myself to slow down, to enjoy my life in the moment and to experience gratefulness for all that I have. I have to confess this doesn't always succeed. For example, "Divine Intuition" had been in the bookstores only two weeks when I jokingly asked my assistant, "Why isn't it a bestseller yet!?" (I was only half kidding.)

I know I'm not alone in this experience of restlessness. I hear it from my clients all the time. "I've tried affirmations, visualizations and listening to my intuition. It doesn't work! Why don't I have what I want yet?" You may wonder if you're doing something wrong, saying your affirmations improperly, or misidentifying your intuition and making bad choices. I've discovered that life doesn't seem to go in a straight line for most of us. Despite what many self-help books imply, you don't usually sail effortlessly from the completion of one successful achievement into another.

The Universe is at work behind the scenes helping you climb the ladder to your success. There is a Divine intelligence that knows exactly what you need in order to grow into the next, new experience you want to create. Susan Jeffers writes in her wonderful book, "End the Struggle and Dance With Life" -- "When we are spiritually evolving, we are in a better place to handle whatever life hands us." She adds, "We all want quick and easy, but when it comes to becoming a spiritual being, speed doesn't work."

I've had many experiences in my life that felt like failures. At the time it was hard to imagine I was anywhere near to achieving the goals I so desperately wanted. Yet when I look back at those situations with a few decades of hindsight, I can see that the Universe had put those seeming detours in my path to help me grow into my vision.

While it may have appeared to me that nothing was happening, the changes that were taking place in my emotions, thoughts and spiritual growth were profound. It's as if Divine Intelligence knew exactly what I needed to overcome the limiting beliefs I held about myself and the world. God was readying me for what I needed in order to be able to achieve the next steps in my life.

You may think your goal is to get that promotion, to find your life partner, or to write a best-selling book. There's nothing wrong with that! However, God uses your desires to help you learn about love, forgiveness, kindness, community, wisdom and patience along the way. Trust and faith are the qualities to focus on while the forces of Universal wisdom do their work to assist in your spiritual unfolding.
