"In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it."--Robert Heinlein

How true. Without purpose, we just drift from one thing to another. In order to find your purpose you must clearly define what it is you're trying to achieve. Once you know and understand your purpose then it's time to take creative action.

Creative action is different from just running around like a chicken trying out everything that comes your way. Creative action comes from a place of knowing.
It’s like the old joke where the woman keeps praying to win the lottery. And every time there’s a drawing she asks God, “Why didn’t I win?” This goes on for some time and finally God says back to her, “Hey, do me a favor. Throw me a bone. Buy a ticket.”

The Universe provides exactly what you ask for. But in order to get what you truly desire you must do your part. But for most of us, instead of following the Law of Attraction, we tend to follow the Law of At-Traction.

We're so convinced that if we just plant ourselves and keep doing the same thing, while asking for something different that things will eventually change. But things change only when we get clear about our purpose and change our actions to meet that purpose.

So begin now to get clear about what you truly want. Then stop following the Law of At-Traction and begin to take some type of creative action each day to get you closer to attracting what it is you truly desire in the new year.
