Manifestation tip 9: learn to endure


One of the virtues that seems to be absent from popular manifestation and law of attraction advice is endurance.

Everyone wants everything fast and the "snap and it shall be so" style of advice is running rampant. How to manifest $10,000 in 10 days is an example of the clickbait headlines that attract the masses.

Unfortunately, this is leaving a lot of people frustrated and disappointed. Folks are clicking their heels hoping to see instantaneous results and feeling defeated when their meager efforts don't immediately yield fruit.

It’s interesting how this instant mindset conflicts with almost every major philosophical and spiritual school of thought (oh, and natural, scientific law too).

Not everything in life will or should be slow and hard but some things simply won't be fast and easy. Life ebbs and flows which means that sometimes your plans will be thwarted, no matter how hard you try. 

I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. Time and chance happen to all. — Solomon 

Time and chance are the unforeseeable factors that we all contend with. Cultivating patience and perseverance is an underrated virtue, but it's the most reliable way to deal with uncertainty. 

Today it might seem impossible but tomorrow you may get your big break. Things could work out in your favor, but how will you know if you drop out? 

Luck is a numbers game. There are patterns in randomness that you can't see. The word "trial" means something that tests endurance but it also means to experiment repeatedly until a favorable outcome is reached. 

Prosperity is a direct result of adversity and can't be obtained without it. 

Though hardship is inevitable and it's hard to predict when the tides will turn, it's impossible not to experience success if you persist. 

The longer you endure, the more likely you are to beat the odds. So don't give up before you reap your harvest
