The universe tells you what you need to focus on. It gives you little nudges. If you’ve learned to recognize those signals, then you quickly catch whatever in your life is not in balance. But most of us don’t know how to recognize the little nudges the universe gives us, so then we get a stronger poke. Eventually, we get slapped across the face or knocked down. And some people have to really hit bottom before they are willing to look at the necessity of change and the possibility of growth.
Try to cultivate the attitude that the problems that come into your life really are gifts from your own soul trying to call your attention to the things in your life that are not in balance. Then life is less traumatic. You can immediately look at a problem and ask,
“What do I need to learn here?”
