Is Action Always Necessary?
Sometimes -- often -- what you want will come about almost without you doing anything.
More often than not, though, you have to do something.
When Larry King calls me on a Wednesday night to appear on his show a second time the very next day, my part is to rush to the airport and get to CNN in LA.
I had to do a lot of sprinting to make it to the show.
In my book The Attractor Factor I call what you need to do "inspired action."
If you get an inner prompt to make a call or buy a book or attend an event or apply for a job, then honor that nudge.
Act on it.
That nudge is coming from the part of you connected to the greater picture. It can lead you to the fulfillment of your goal. It will send the nudge, but you have to act on it.
My other point about action is that when you are clear about what you want and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it, the action you take will be effort-free.
I've written about this before. I write a tremendous amount of books. For many, it would seem like work. For me, it is effort free. I'm certainly working, but the mindset I have is that this is as natural as breathing.
The Secret leads many to believe action isn't necessary. Action may or may not be necessary. It depends on you and what you want. My message today is to pay attention to the signs and jump when it feels like it's part of the divine plan.
When you do, miracles happen.
PS - I just signed a six-figure book deal yesterday. I got the offer and took action to accept it. Now I have to take action to manifest the book. When you're in the flow and doing what is right for you, magic and miracles do happen. The rest of the world will see you "working." But you'll be enjoying the divine play of life.
