All things come to those who wait. Everyone has probably heard some variant of that statement before. I would say that it is, for the most part, true – but there is a caveat. There are a couple of conditions. Woodrow Wilson said:
“All things come to him who waits – provided he knows what he is waiting for.”
That’s one of the conditions; knowing what you are waiting for. I’ll come back to that one. The second “condition,” relates to the quality of your waiting. Is there such a thing as quality waiting? You better believe it!
There are two kinds of waiting that a person can do. The first is to sit around hoping that something is going to change.
Now, hope is a good thing to be sure, but it is not waiting with quality. Waiting in hope is sort of an anxious, wistful sort of thing, and when you are waiting in this manner nothing usually manifests for you. It’s not proactive – it leaves the driving to someone else, so to speak.
“Quality waiting,” on the other hand, can best be described as patient faith. You are not simply hoping that something will come, you know that it is coming because you have applied your faith and taken the appropriate actions to yield a specific result. Notice that I used the word “specific.” That is part two of the formula – “knowing what you are waiting for.”
Let’s suppose that you wish to go to Times Square in New York. And let’s suppose that Times Square just happens to be east of your current location, and you must take a cab. So, what do you tell the cab driver once you are settled in the back seat – to head east, or that you want to go to Times Square in New York?
Well, the answer is obvious: you would say, “take me to Times Square in New York.” If you just said “head east,” you wouldn’t be doing any quality waiting; you would be anxiously hoping that you somehow ended up at Times Square. Good luck. No, you have to be specific with cab drivers, and you have to be specific with the universe, too.
When you want change in your life, both you and the Infinite Source must know – specifically – what condition or change you wish to experience . . . that is, “what you’re [quality] waiting for.” If you are without a specific vision for your future, then you don’t know what you’re waiting for, and with that sort of vagueness of energy, who knows what you’ll get? The idea of a positive change sounds fine, but offers nothing concrete and specific from which the universe can build. The lesson here? Know EXACTLY what “good thing” you wish to come into your life, apply some patient, quality waiting, and then you will have a real good shot at getting it.
So, no more hopeful waiting in vain for some fuzzy, non-specific outcome. Make a plan, paint a detailed picture in your mind and write it down. That’s where one begins when one is serious about experiencing a desired change.
Many Blessings To All…
