(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Many of us were taught “anything worth having must be worked for” or “struggle defines reward” or “push through your obstacles, if you want to win.” Famous sports coaches have used this approach to create big wins. But at what cost?

If you look at the universe through the eyes of a quantum physicist you see that everything is just vibrating energy. What we call solid matter is simply a local collection of that vibrating energy. All energy is flowing from whereever it is at the present to whereever it is going to be next. Nothing is static.

And if looking at the universe at the quantum level bothers you, consider the physical universe, the big pieces which Newton’s laws describe. Here, too, everything is moving from whereever it is now to whereever it is going to be next. We know this is true even of whole continents just as it is of a single blade of grass. Nothing is static.

So why do you believe that anything in your life will remain as it is right now? It will not. Why do you believe that you must struggle to have the outcomes you want? You don’t.

Be like a river flowing around a boulder. When you come to an obstacle on your journey, figure out how to flow around it rather than repeatedly crash against it.

All the rest of the universe flows. Why don’t you?
