Great discussion going on the last post about how to determine when something that isn't working is a test to determine is you are serious and committed about achieving it – or a signal from the universe that you should move on.
I promised to share how I decide on this. Here’s my take…
Since I’m a baseball guy, I stick with the “three strikes and you’re out” system. I try to do something and face resistance, no problem. I attempt it again and it doesn't happen. I go again. But if it doesn't happen the third time, I assume the universe is sending me a message that something else is my highest good.
This doesn't apply on matters of principle when I need to do the right thing. I use this system as my radar for making decisions like a new business venture, renting an office space, or buying a condo. When I swing and miss three times, I assume it's one of those things that are out of my control and look for something that is ultimately better.
Is this the best system? I don’t know. But it works pretty good for me. What works for you?
