"The measure of itelligence is the ability to change." - Albert Einstein

A great quote by Einstein.  But how do you change if you’re fearful of the unknown? 

In my free eBook 8 Barriers to Joy and Abundance, I have rated the need to control right after the joy blockers of “I’m not Worthy” and “There’s Not Enough”. It’s a biggy.

In actuality, the habit of having to control everything and the reluctance to change is based on fear, which leads to desperation and begging for what you want.  This type of fear is based on push or chase energy and will inevitably block the flow of that which you most desire.

You see, the more you struggle to get what you want, the more you are pushing it away.  Why?  Because you are focused on the lack of the thing you want, which is based on fear.  And that’s where your focus is.

Control is about resistance and is the opposite of flexibility, which is this month’s joy habit. Control is when you are so attached to the outcome, that you don’t notice the signs that could be directing you to perhaps a better result.  And as I wrote in a previous blog post about being fluid like water, resistance which is really about control will block flow.

The best approach is to surrender and allow the Universe the space to deliver what it is you really want. Get out of your own way and let things unfold.

Remember, it isn’t your job to make it happen.  It’s your job to allow it to happen.

Be flexible and take the fear about change and the unknown out of the equation.

If this is one of your barriers to joy and abundance, ask yourself where did this come from?  Awareness is the first step to changing a habit.  Surrender and receive!
