No matter how skilled or competent we are there are always things that we want but that are always just out of our reach; we may long for a relationship to go in a particular way, we may ache for a specific assignment or job, or we may crave a certain object or state of mind. We may make huge efforts to achieve any of these ends, we may study, we may practice, we may beg for help. but there are situations when any planning or any variety or amount of effort will not be rewarded with what we consider success. Most of us would like to avoid failure and disappointment, not court it, so after making a few attempts in a particular direction and being thwarted in our efforts most of us tend to disengage from futile action and move our focus to more attainable goals. What we must remember is that effort alone cannot conquer all – there are some things that we must let go; rather, spend our time seeking goals more appropriate to our inner and outer workings, then make gargantuan efforts for or at something more suited or tailored for us. Wouldn’t you rather grow into things that fit your personality and type instead of trying to fit yourself into a box unsuited?
