Formula For Failure: Let Your Trust Rust - Grasshopper
Trust is the fertilizer for success in any endeavor. The mistake we make in our effort to succeed is confusing wishing with trusting.
Trust dies on the vine as we wish and continually opine.
Wishing is a head trip, meaning we continue thinking about our wish. Trust is a knowing that lives outside our head.
Wishing and trusting are inversely proportional. That means the more you do of one, the less you do of the other. I submit that we live in the land of wish and our lack of success in any specific area is our evidence.
Wishes are catalysts. That means they are a starting point. We remain in the starting blocks when we stay focused on the wish. Wish and let it go. That’s when you make room for trust.
Here’s the problem I have with repeated wishing: It doesn’t work. It’s like constantly praying for the same thing. What logical theologian came up with the idea that you have to continually tell the all-knowing almighty what you want? God isn’t smart enough to get it the first time?
People who continually wish or pray don’t trust in God or whatever they call God. They must think God is hard of hearing.
When you mail a letter, do you constantly think of the process of mailing until the letter arrives? If you’re like most, you trust that it will arrive. The same is true with your car. Do you pray every day that it will start when you turn the key, or do you trust that it will happen?
“What about when the car doesn’t start; what good is your precious trust then?”
It’s percentages. Do the arithmetic on wishing and trusting and find out which one has a better rate of return. It’s the difference on return between a savings account and a hedge fund.
There is no time like the present to start trusting trust.
Developing the art of trust has a side benefit. It gets you out of your head. It calms the constant chatter machine making room for new ideas that the process of trusting is sending your way. If you constantly have the talk button depressed on a walkie-talkie, you are unable to receive, no matter how great the idea is that’s attempting to get through.
Make all the wishes you want. Just don’t waste precious effort repeating them again and again. Trust that there is a part of you that knows how to fulfill that desire and become open to the process of receiving and acting on directives, images and nudgings that arrive from out of the blue.
When you develop your ability to trust, you learn first-hand that trust will take you farther than wishing until you’re blue in the face.
All the best,
