I’m often asked, “How do I know I’m doing everything I should to manifest the things I want?”
One of the ways that you can know if you’ve done everything you can do is determining if you’ve done everything that YOU can do.
Sometimes people feel that they aren’t doing enough – they’re wanting to get that business going and it’s not picking up fast enough…or they’re trying find that perfect relationship, but the person hasn’t shown up yet. Then, they start feeling like they aren’t doing enough.
I’m going to let you off the hook: If you’ve done everything that you know to do, then you’re doing everything you can do.
Trying to do more than you know to do is forcing a situation which usually is a sign of attachment and as you know, forcing things never works. When you’re in the flow or when you are aligned with the thing that you want for yourself, the information you need will show up at the perfect time, exactly when you need it, not a second before and not a second afterwards.
The main thing here is understanding where you stand as it relates to doing the best YOU can do…and you KNOW when you’re doing your very best. Not someone else’s best, not some imaginary best, but the actual best that YOU can do. Then you can say, “I did my best”.
However, you also know when you’re doing the bare minimum or mediocre…so don’t allow yourself to be sucked into “Oh well, I’m doing the best I can do… blah, blah, blah”… when you KNOW it’s not your best.
You do need to push yourself to your own personal limits (and beyond), but you do have to be aware of and sure that you are doing the best you can do. And if you are doing the best you can do can do, that’s just fine – because that’s all you need to do.
And as a side note, sometimes doing the best you can do differs from day to day. You may be extremely tired one day and aren’t able to do as much as you did yesterday, but you’re doing the best you can do right now. Sometimes you may just be having an off-day. That happens – ask any professional sports player – some days they just have an off-day, but they did the best they could do that day. So make sure you’re doing the best you can do at all times and everything will always work itself out.
