I flew to Houston recently to do one thing: test drive a Spyker, a hand made exotic super car from Holland.

It was a departure from my usual way of doing things. I never take a day off to fly to another city just to see a car. But it felt right. It felt like I almost couldn’t stop myself from doing it.

That bothered me.

I wondered why I was so intent on seeing that car. It was a stretch to see it. I had to interrupt my day, my business, my life. But I know the power of stretching to increase personal growth. I also know the power of trusting those hunches. So I stretched.

Now here’s where this gets interesting.

I thought I was going to see the Spyker. After all, that’s why I booked the flight.

But from a higher plane (no pun intended), I actually went there for a completely different reason.

Yes, I went to see the car. That was the sole purpose of the trip. But once I knew I was going anyway, I started to think of what else I could do in Houston.

Recently I had been interviewed for three different CNN radio shows out of Houston. The host liked me and asked to talk about filming a TV show with me. I told him about Operation YES, my movement to end homelessness. He liked it. So we planned to talk again soon.

Well, since I was going to Houston anyway, I asked if he wanted to meet. He did.

As it turns out, I loved driving the Spyker car. It’s fast and furious and oh so unique looking. But it’s also tough to crawl in and out of it, like entering a fighter jet.

I didn’t buy the car.

It appears the real reason I went there was the CNN interview. It was intense brainstorming, high energy, and led to solid action. We made plans to make a realty TV show out of my helping homeless people with the Law of Attraction and my other work.

So why did I go to Houston?

Was it the car or CNN?

Obviously I consciously thought it was for the car.
But unconsciously I was really going there for CNN.
The lesson here is to trust the process.

Even when it may seem like you are off track, you may actually be on the right path.

You might doubt yourself or feel disappointed when you take action for a reason (such as to see a car) and it doesn’t work out.

But if you relax and breathe and remain aware, you will probably find there’s a better reason for the action you took.

Since you can learn from everything and everyone, it’s most likely true that you are always on the right path.

Assume that’s true and see if life takes on more of an exciting charm.

What if what you’re doing right now, no matter what it is or what you prefer, is exactly the right moment for you?
What if there’s something in this moment that is for you to see and act on that you hadn’t previously seen or considered?

Think about it.

PS – Know you’re on the right path and accelerate your results with the Law of Attraction and more.
