Infinite Patience

We live in a modern world, with instant gratification for everything we purchase.

Streaming movies, downloading books and same day delivery on almost anything we can think of. We have all become impatient wanting what we want, and wanting it delivered instantly.

This is creating a real dichotomy of what we are experiencing and how we create our lives, and it is doing us all harm.

It is time to open our eyes, and get back to the truth.

Andrew Hackett: What I mean by infinite patience is ultimately accepting a belief that everything happens for a very good reason. Everything happens for a given purpose. And more to the point that in fact, the real belief is that the universe knows the precise time that whatever you're trying to manifest needs to happen that way. The universe knows when the best time is that.

Good day and welcome to Illimitable Living. I'm Andrew Hackett, and I'm here to talk about living a life free from fears, restrictive boundaries, so that you can not only live a limitless life, but so that you can become truly illimitable. I'm here in sunny Australia talking with my remarkable cohost, Patricia Morris, as we take you on a journey, delving deep into the mysteries of the universe and how we live within it. Join me on a journey towards living a truly limitless life, on the Illimitable Living Podcast.

Andrew Hackett: Good Day everybody, you're listening to Andrew Hackett. And this is a Illimitable Living, where we talk about a whole range of things to try and get us to think about things from a different perspective. I'm here with Patricia Morris, my remarkable cohost. Good day Patricia, how are you doing?

Patricia Morris: I'm doing fantastic. Thank you for asking, Andrew. Thank you for having me again this week.

Andrew Hackett: Oh look, the pleasure is all mine. So tell me, what is it that you wanted to touch on today?

Patricia Morris: Well, I wanted to talk about impatience. And the reason I wanted to talk about that is I've noticed, not just in my own life, but in the lives around me, that we kind of live in this world of instant gratification. We have Amazon Prime, we can order something and it's there the next day. We don't really have to wait anymore. We have social media, we have all kinds of avenues of where we can get instant gratification. And I think what that has done for most of us, is programmed our brains to want something immediately, because that's the society and culture that we live in these days.

And when we manifest, we start to get to that same place in our brains of, "Okay, I am manifesting this. I want to put this out to the universe, that this is what I want. Why isn't it happening?" And I know I find myself in that situation sometimes. I have to remind myself of all the things that we need to do to manifest. But I wanted to ask you what your experiences are in how to deal with it, and what do you do or what do you coach your clients with on this?

Andrew Hackett: Yeah, look, that's a really great subject too. Thank you for raising that. And look, I completely agree with you. We, we live in a very impatient world where instant gratification is a priority now. I see it in our kids, they buy something online and they want it right there. And then in fact, most of them can't even wait the time it takes to download it, and to get a working if it's a computer game or something like that. But even online courses, even buying cars or furniture. I, myself, when I moved into a new home a number of years ago, we needed to buy some new furniture, because the old furniture in the old house was completely of the wrong style or type, and it was also getting very old. And I remember having to order all of this furniture, and it was going to take 16 to 20 weeks for it to arrive.

And I just remember thinking, "Oh my God, it just seems like forever." So, look, this impatient kind of culture that we are developing, both internally within ourselves and also collectively, we really need to stop and I have a bit of a long hard look at ourselves sometimes I believe. And realize how lucky we are to live in a world where we have these opportunities available to us. But we also tend to want everything instantly. If we have a thought about success, and we want that success to appear almost instantly. If we want to create a business, and we want our business to be successful. If we want to help people and we want plenty of clients to arrive. Or starting a Reiki business, or anything. It doesn't really matter what it is, we have this thought process nowadays that if we put the time, effort and money into creating it, then the rest will just happen.

And look, to be quite honest with you, it's not that it won't happen, it's just the time scale that is required to make it happen, happens for a range of different reasons. And ultimately the way to deal with this is through what I refer to as quite an advanced technique, particularly in the manifesting side of things. And I know in these podcasts we haven't had really an opportunity to delve into manifesting, and we certainly will at some point. But the advanced technique is predominantly associated with what I refer to as infinite patience. And infinite patience ultimately is about practicing patience in its truest sense. True patience doesn't put timelines on things, doesn't put expectations or demands on things. True patience is knowing, with every bit of faith, that everything happens for a reason, and that everything happens at precisely the right time it needs to.

Now look, to be quite honest with you, this is a really good discussion point. Primarily because when it comes to infinite patience, and certainly managing the lack of patience, or managing the impatience in my own life, I'm not a shining example. This is why I say to people, I don't consider myself to be an egoless being or a highly evolved being either. And the reason being, even though my beliefs may align with those who are egoless or align with those who are highly evolved, my practical application on it is really what needs a lot of work. Even for someone like myself who is a practitioner in all of these aspects.

Even in my own business, I have published a couple of books. I've got more books that are already on the way. I kind of just want to get them out there, and I want to get to that next step. And even recording podcast episodes, Patricia, you'll know we try and record on average about one a week, so we can release one a week. And we've got a bit of a backlog of episodes that we've recorded, so that we're constantly able to release one a week without disappointing anybody, without missing a week. But of course, ultimately speaking I'd love to just get down and just record all of them, hundreds of them so that they're all there. In the same way from my business perspective, I have a number of books, I've got four more books that are about to be released over the next four months. So those books are actually written, and they're part of the fearless series, for instance. And book two is about to come out any week now.

But I've also got other books already getting started. Future releases outside of the fearless series, additional books on a range of different topics. And I just love to get on with them as well and get them published so that the world can just take all of this information on board, and it can help people and save people from their suffering. But I've also got to be realistic as well. I've got clients to service, I've got bills to pay, I've got online courses to develop, a membership site to develop and release, and all this other stuff.

So as much as I myself am happy to work 16 hours a day or 20 hours a day if I need to, I can't expect every member of my team. And I've got a team all over the world. I've got a team based in the Ukraine and Poland. I've got teams based here in Australia, I've got part of my team also in the US. And I can't expect them to work those type of hours, because that would be grossly unreasonable by anybody's standards. But they've got families and friends, and lives to lead as well. So I need to learn to be patient. And most to the point, I need to learn to apply what I know of the practices of infinite patience, to my every day, to my business, to what I'm trying to do for the world.

Because I also know that now I can try and rush things, but the universe knows when everything is supposed to happen. The universe knows all the past and all the future, and all possible of both. And ultimately speaking, I need to be very clear with myself. And I need to remind myself of that all the time, "Andrew, you've got to be patient with this. Just do what you can in the time that you have. The people that you are working with are the priority, not necessarily the next release" or anything like that. It's always a bit of a fine balance, but certainly the practice of infinite patience, when we practice infinite patience, everything happens at precisely the right time.

Patricia Morris: And I think if we can also remind ourselves of our last triumphant moment that we experienced in life, and if we go back to that place for just a moment in our minds and think, "Okay, that was a wonderful moment in my life. What about the one in a million things that had to happen to make that moment possible?" That can be an excellent reminder of what this is all about, that it takes literally a million or maybe more, things and actions and motions to happen by the universe, in order to get that one little moment in time for you to experience that triumph.

Andrew Hackett: Absolutely. And look, this is part of the interesting thing in the way that the universe works. If we could all just have a single thought, and whatever we thought could manifest in an instant, then personally I reckon the world would be a pretty chaotic place. And the reason why I say that is because most of the time we're having thoughts that we really don't want to be having. We're having thoughts of negativity, of judging others, of judging ourselves. We're having all of these thoughts all the time, and if the universe was manifesting all of these in an instance, I think we'd actually all be in a pretty bad way.

Patricia Morris: Oh yeah.

Andrew Hackett: This is why universal timing is so important because the universe, and this is why I have another chapter in my fearless series called working with the time delay. There is a time delay for a very, very good reason. That is mostly about ensuring that we are manifesting what we desire in our life, not just silly throw away lines, or throw away thoughts that we have from day to day, or moment to moment. But also it's also about ensuring that what it is we desire, we definitely do desire. I'm like everybody else, every now and then I desire a nice fancy fast car. But really is that really what's right for me? Is that really what I need as part of my ongoing spiritual evolution? Some days I don't think it is, because it would just be nice to drive. But the point I'm trying to make is that ultimately speaking, we have all of these thoughts, these throw away thoughts.

The thought is the starting process of the manifestation process. If the universe was instantly gratifying each and every thought that we'd have, we would end up in a really bad way, because of the ill thoughts we have of others or the ill thoughts we have of ourself. Or the thoughts of greed, or the thoughts or desire for instant gratification on things. I've said this time and time again, us men, we are neanderthals at best. And if every thought we had of a passing woman was to actually come into reality, we'd be very, very busy indeed. And poor women would be probably very uncomfortable. And I don't mean to jest about it or joke about it, it's just a bit of an example that we have. And look, women have the same sorts of thoughts, in their desire of others and everything like that. The point is is that, we're allowed to have this space where we see it in our thoughts. And we have all of these ridiculous thoughts.

And then when you start challenging these thoughts and start seeing them for what they are, as in a manifestation of what the ego is trying to represent us as, we start to realize the madness that's behind it all. We don't want that stuff manifesting in an instant. We don't want that gratification happening instantly. We need to allow the time to play out. And this is part of what the time delay is. This is why infinite patience is so important.

Like anybody who wants to build a business, it doesn't really matter what the business is, these things take time. You can't just create a business and suddenly the world goes crazy, and suddenly buys all your products or all your services the next day. It just doesn't work like that. What's the old saying? It takes 10 years to create an overnight success. We are comparing our B roll with everybody else's finished product and we need to stop doing that, because ultimately speaking, we are looking at the world through a bit of a false lens. And social media doesn't help. People's lack of authenticity doesn't help. But that's for them to manage it and that's what they're about. And if that's what they want to represent themselves, so if that's their choice as well, we need to respect that.

But the point I'm trying to make is that these things take time. Trying to create a business takes time. And yes, you can accelerate the process with the right type of business coach. You can accelerate any type of personal development, spiritual development, whatever it is with the right type of help and assistance. In my business alone, for instance, I outsource my social media strategies, I outsource my digital marketing strategies, I outsource my filming. I outsource the building of my sales mechanisms, I outsource the editing and the publishing of my book. All of these sorts of things can happen. And by making the right decisions about these sorts of things, we can accelerate processes, we can shorten the time frame it takes to actually manifest these things. And that's the easy way. And knowing someone who can help you with all of that is really important, if that's what you want to do.

But infinite patience is just as important as, for instance, resolute faith. If you are not certain, without any compromise or doubt, that the path that you were on is the right path and this is what you were going to create in your life. And this is how it's all going to come together, and all that sort of stuff. You can't expect the universe to be certain. It just reflects back to us what we put out. So if we're putting out certainty, we're putting out resolute faith that this is exactly what the path is, and precisely where it's going to end up. We may not know all of the how's or the why's, but we certainly know what the destination is. And we have that right to choose that destination.

But if we choose a destination that takes 20 years to build, you've got to expect it to take 20 years to build. For instance, I look at my own business, and I think of where Wayne Dyer was before he passed away. I look at where Tony Robbins is, for instance. I greatly admire both of those men, but I've also got to remember, both of them are 40, 45, 50 years into their journey. That's a long path by anybody's standards. And I've got to remember and respect the fact that businesses and success of that size, takes time. And I need to learn to be patient. But with the infinite patience, you sit in this beautiful, calm, very present state, knowing that everything will happen precisely when it needs to. It's not about not taking action.

You've still going to take action. You are the only person who can take action about the things that need to happen to create your life. That is a given and it is a universal law and it cannot be changed. You have to take action. And you have to take regular action. Or as Tony Robbins says, massive action. That must happen. However, set goals, set timeframes, but don't be rigorous about those time frames. You've got to allow things to happen. You've got to allow flexibility. You've got to allow beautiful things, because if you're too rigid, you don't allow the influence of the universe, the inspiration from the universe, the synchronicities from the universe to flow into your space. And that's another reason why infinite patience is so important. That's part of that surrender step in that manifestation process.

Patricia Morris: The surrender. Yeah.

Andrew Hackett: It's absolutely essential.

Patricia Morris: It is. Absolutely. It is. I love that we're talking about this, because you mentioned something earlier in the podcast that I find very true, is that even we as practitioners can struggle with this. And so this is coming at a very timely part in my life as well. I know all these things that you're talking about, Andrew, it's all these spiritual teachers and classes and whatnot that we can take throughout life. And we learn about these things, and we know them logically. We know all this, but then when they manifest in our life, suddenly we're caught in a place of now we need to apply everything that we've learned.

And I'm not saying I don't apply this in my life. I do. But each challenge can present itself in a different angle and a different way, that sometimes you can lose focus because it's not presenting itself in the same way that it did last time. If that makes sense? So I just want to thank you for putting all this out there too, because I even needed to hear this. And I don't mean that from a place of ego. I just mean that I'm many years into practicing all of this. And even those of us who have many years behind our belts, doing all of this, we need that reminder from time to time as well.

Andrew Hackett: I completely agree. And look, Wayne Dyer, Neale Donald Walsch, Tony Robbins, they all have spoken about the fact that practicing what they preach is actually more difficult than it sounds. It doesn't devalue what their message is. It doesn't feel devalue what they're trying to say for us. However, as spiritual teachers in our own lives, in our own homes where we allow ourselves to be raw and vulnerable, it's difficult to stay focused all the time. In fact, it's difficult for everybody to stay focused all the time. We're no different, we're human as well. And we all need reminders of these sorts of things. I believe all of these different iterations of the same lesson are in fact part of the mastery process. Anybody who seeks to be a master at anything, knows that you don't just learn it once. You've got to learn it and relearn it and relearn it, and we learn it, a hundred time, thousand times, maybe even possibly 10,000 times.

And that's what mastery is all about. It's like the Masters program that I've got coming up for release in the not too distant future, is all about reimplementing the processes over and over and over again. So that people can get to a point where they can truly master a whole range of spiritual teachings, and personal development teachings, so that they can make sure that it is heavily ingrained within their life so that it happens autonomously. It happens unconsciously competently as well. These sorts of things that are really, really important. And infinite patience is no different. Time and time again, probably on a weekly basis have to remind myself, Andrew, you need to remain patient. Everything will happen the time that it's supposed to. Rushing things creates mistakes.

If I'm going to release this, there's a reason why this hasn't happened this month like you'd set out, because the universe knows that it's meant to happen the next month or the month after or the month after that. That's what all of this is about. I realized many years ago when I started holding events, for instance, that I was prematurely trying to force a ladder path of the process, into an earlier part of building things. And that there's a reason why there tends to be a particular pattern. Now anybody who talks about creating business, business mastery, business management. Now businesses have been around for decades and centuries, if not even longer than that.

And ultimately speaking, there is a reason why there is a bit of a process that happens with growth in a business. Anybody will tell you, once you get your business past $1 million per annum, and you want to get it to five, you need to change. The business needs to change. The same, it needs to change if you go from five to 10 million. And some 10 to 100 million, and so on and so forth. The business must constantly change. We are no different, if we are taking things to the next level, we must constantly adapt and change. But we must do it in the right way. And infinite patience is one of those ways, it's another string to the bow, so to speak, of the things we need to practice to enable the beauty in the world to unravel before us.

But what is infinite patience? I mean really, we need to probably really get down to the nitty gritty of it all. What I mean by infinite patience is ultimately accepting a belief or changing a belief, if if you currently don't believe this. Accepting the belief that everything happens for a very good reason. Everything happens for a given purpose. And more to the point that in fact the real belief is that the universe knows the precise time that whatever you're trying to manifest, needs to happen that way. The universe knows when the best time is that. And that is taking all aspects into account.

So for instance, I might want my business to go to 10 million, for instance. But the universe probably knows that I'm not ready to go to 10 million just yet. The universe probably knows that maybe I don't have the policies or processes in place yet to go to 10 million. Maybe the universal so knows that that might be too much of a distraction for me, and in fact I need to refocus back on the client rather than the output or the creation of the money associated with it. Again, it's just another example. It's the same with any child that's going to school, they probably want to get to the end of their schooling, and get off to college or get off to working for a living. They probably want to do that now. I know my 15 year old boys certainly does. He wants to get on with growing up as quickly as possible.

But the simple fact of the matter remains, that all these things need to happen and grow and develop over time, because the steps associated with it ... even if we don't see the steps, if we don't understand the steps. They still need to happen for it all to happen. My business is not going to go to 10 million any time soon, unless I actually change and adapt and put in place the processes associated with enabling that to happen. My kids are not going to be able to know and understand and learn what they need to know and understand to finish schooling until they've gone through the process of learning them.

This is why things like resolute faith, infinite patience, understanding manifestation and how it all works. That's why this stuff needs to be learnt in practice, and it needs to be built, or what I call layered upon. Building a business, we layer page upon page upon page amongst many different facets of what the business is, but if we are leaving some of those out, we can't put the latter ones on yet because there's nothing to put them on top of. Personal spiritual growth is exactly the same. We've got to develop over a period of time. We need to be patient about that development and allow things to happen and unfold. Yes, we can accelerate things. Yes, we can make decisions that will speed things up. Absolutely. And in my opinion, if that's what you want to do, the universe will provide the intuitive guidance needed to know how to speed that up.

Maybe it's reading a book, maybe it's speaking to the right person, engaging the right professional. Outsourcing aspects of your business or of your work. Yes, I'm an intelligent guy, most of us are intelligent people. Anybody listening to this would be an intelligent person. And we can all learn what we need to learn to achieve what we need to achieve. That's not an issue. The question is how much time do we have? Like for instance for me, it took me 10 years to come out of the unconscious suffering that I was, to make a decision to fix myself, to seek the professional help to do so, to grow and develop, to learn, to read all of the books, to understand the texts, to listen to the podcasts, to attend the events.

It took me 10 years to put all of this together, to grow inside myself, understand myself. That in itself can take years.

Patricia Morris: Oh yes it can.

Andrew Hackett: You know what this was all about, Patricia, you've been through all this too. But then it took me a number of years to see what the process was, so that I could formulate it, so that I could repeat it in others, so I could practice it and test it. If taking me, let's just say 10 years, it was a little longer than that, but let's just say it took me 10 years to do all of that. To go from fixing myself, understanding the process, documenting the process, so that process can be taught and learnt and repeated in others. But if I was to do that and it took 10 years for me to be able to repeat it in an individual, how's that going to work? That's not going to work out terribly well, isn't it? So the process needs to be condensed and refined. We all have this opportunity. We just got to make the right choices available to us.

So people can come to me and learn what I took 10 years to learn, and they can learn that in six or 12 months. Then they can go to the next teacher and find out from that teacher what they need to learn. And that teacher might have taken 25 years to learn everything, and they can teach them in one to two years. It all depends on what you're trying to learn. Now I could learn about social media and how it all works and all that sort of stuff, absolutely I can. I'm an intelligent fella, or I can find someone who's learned at all already and I can outsource it to them.

Some things about business and some things about life we can outsource. In the same way I get someone to come and manage my gardens or clean the house or things like that, these are all sorts of things that we can do. But personal growth, spiritual development, all that sort of stuff, we have to do within ourselves. You can't outsource the internal process that happens, but you can accelerate it.

Patricia Morris: Oh I love that. That'd make an awesome meme, by the way.

Andrew Hackett: Yeah, there you go. And you accelerate it by engaging someone like myself, or another spiritual teacher or another lifestyle coach, or a professional coach or a business coach. You accelerate it because you want to grab what that took them 10 years to learn, understand, and process. And you want to learn it in a short period of time, so that then you can go to the next one and learn what they learnt in a short period of time. And that is the way personal growth and spiritual development must happen.

Patricia Morris: Absolutely.

Andrew Hackett: For us all to be able to evolve quickly and rapidly in my mind, [inaudible 00:00:28:44].

Patricia Morris: Yes, exactly. I agree with that because I know in my own life, I've had to learn those things as well. Like I was mentioning all the classes that you can attend, all of the webinars, all of the different ways that you learn about this stuff. Really when it boils down to it, the universe will put ways for you to apply that in your life. Once you do learn all of that stuff. And the reason for that is, when say it's time to start your business, if you have applied all of those things, then you're not going to have as many experiences come up that will force you to learn those things, if that makes sense.

I don't know if I'm making any sense with what I'm saying, but yeah, that's exactly what happens, when you do start out on a new venture of some kind. If there is something that you still need to learn, the universe we'll put that into your and say, okay, this is what you need to learn before you can move forward. And there's no way to bypass that. There just isn't. Believe me, I've tried because I'm a stubborn one. I can be stubborn, but it doesn't work that way.

Andrew Hackett: Look, this is why I use the staircase analogy, and I use it in a number of different ways. We have a staircase with a hundred steps in front of us, and they're the steps that we can see. You can't go from the first step to the a hundred step. It's just not physically possible. You've got to take each step. And every now and then you might be able to skip a step, but you don't skip too many steps, because the foundation then of whatever you are building is built on an unsafe or unstable foundation. But if you take your time and you are infinitely patient and you take each step, and soak it in and allow it to be, everything is possible.

I say to everybody, they can achieve whatever they set their heart and mind on. Anybody can. There is too much evidence around us of people ... even people starting later in life. I mean, think about Colonel Sanders, when he was 65 before he even begun to think about starting his Kentucky Fried Chicken business empire. Yeah, he was 65 years of age when he started all of that. There are too many examples of people of all walks of life, with all different capabilities, of all different ages, changing their stars in a massive way.

Now the question is, what is more valuable to you? As a good coach, one of my coaches said to me, a very wise man said to me, "Andrew, you either have the money or time. If you've got both, you're very, very lucky." But most people have either money or time. The question is, which is more valuable to you? And to me, time is a million times more valuable, because it's the one thing that cannot be replaced.

Patricia Morris: That's true. Very true.

Andrew Hackett: Once you lose it, you lose it.

Patricia Morris: That's right, money can always be replaced.

Andrew Hackett: Money is just an [crosstalk 00:31:38]. Correct. That's right. That's exactly right. Money can always be replaced. It comes and goes. And sometimes it comes in floods, and other times a little less so. But the point being is, if you have money, you can accelerate time. If you have time, you can learn anything. That's not a problem. It just takes time. You can take 10 years to learn what I learnt. You can take 10 years to learn whatever any anybody else learnt. Or you can take 40 years to learn what Tony Robbins now knows. Or you could hire myself, or you could hire Tony Robbins, or you could hire another type of coach, to teach you in a very condensed time. And therefore instead of taking 10 years, you take six months.

That just has bought you nine and a half years to then repeat that process. And even over 10 years, you can either learn one thing properly over 10 years, or you can go and learn 20 things over that 10 year period, with six month to blocks.

Patricia Morris: Yeah, makes sense.

Andrew Hackett: This is way it's done nowadays. Tony Robbins, again, I talk about him again. I really admire that guy for everything that he has done for everybody else. That guy lives in service to others. He has said many, many times, we grossly overestimate what we can achieve in 12 months. And grossly underestimate what we can achieve in 10 years. All of us do it.

Patricia Morris: We do.

Andrew Hackett: Now the exciting thing is, with the ability of the way we can learn in the freedom and availability of information nowadays, we can greatly accelerate what we can learn within 12 months. By getting people who know this sort of stuff, who have formulated it, put a process together and can repeat it in others. That is the secret. You still need to work with infinite patience. You still need to work with the universe's divine guidance. You still need to, because that's where this limitless possibility comes from.

Patricia Morris: It's right out their...

Andrew Hackett: Correct. That's exactly right. It's where the instruction initially comes from. It's where the influence, the synchronicities happen. The universe can influence a million more people than we even can possibly connect with. Correct. It happens to me all the time, and to my clients all the time. They get a call completely out of the blue by a complete stranger saying, "I've got this really great opportunity. I think you'd be interested in it. What do you think?" There's synchronicities provided by the universe. And that's part of that limitless potential that we all have have access to, but we need to be patient. We need to take our time, we need to breathe through it and stay connected rather than egoically be caught up in this, but it's got to happen now. I want it to happen now. I want this instant gratification. It serves no one.

Patricia Morris: It definitely does not serve anybody. You're right. Yeah. I've learned that myself, because I'm a stubborn one like I mentioned. And in then the early days of all of this, I would try to bypass all that, and then I just realized I was only making more of a mess for myself when I would do that.

Andrew Hackett: It's a very common rookie mistake, Patricia, really is. I've been there myself, done it a hundred times.

Patricia Morris: I think we all have. Absolutely. We all have. And then we learn, okay, you can't do that. Doesn't work that way.

Andrew Hackett: This is actually one reason why a core part of my business offering is to help people who have experienced a spiritual working in to not only find their purpose, but also to turn that purpose into a successful, sustainable living. Because a lot of them really struggle with it, because they've been off doing what I call practical world of the jobs. And that's fine. I don't begrudge anyone that. In fact I very much respect that. But a lot of people that come to me, they say, I've realized my job isn't actually creating meaning in my life, or I want to go and help people, or I want to do this, or I've had this epiphany or this awakening, or uncovered this beautiful gift and I want to share it with the world. But I've also got bills to pay. I've also got a roof to put over my head and children to feed.

And I say to them, "Look, that's completely fine." I've said they all just things we need to sort out. And there was a way to sort all of them out. We are all here to chop the wood and carry the water. We're all here to put food on the table and to raise our children, and to put a roof over our head. That's what practical living, that's what physical life living is all about. There is no reason why a spiritual business can't be just as successful as any other business. Look at Wayne Dyer, and yes, it took me 40 years to be very, very successful, but he was extraordinarily successful. Another one, Vishen Lakhiani with regards to Mindvalley, another successful place. And that's all based on spiritual intentions. Eckhart Tolle, he needs no introduction to this audience. The guys is a mastermind of presence and everything like that. And again, he never sought success. He never sought money and all that sorts of stuff.

But when you find your purpose and you start taking action on your purpose, the universe provides that success in a beautiful and remarkable way. Happens every single time. It just takes time. And we need to breathe into that space. We need to take the action that we need to take when we need to take it. And when we can't take action, we just need to be present. And more to the point we need to exercise infinite patience, because to me that is one of the key secrets towards everything happening at precisely the right time it needs to.
