When we want something badly, most believe it takes long study, hard work, and paying dues to get it. But what if getting what we want is much easier than that?

What if the key to reaching our dream is simply feeling good? Many of us jump right into "busy" activity we think is required to obtain our goal, but that may actually work against us! The key to success is often simply being willing to goof off, relax and allow the good things to arrive effortlessly.

Here's what's up: when you're bound up in "busy"ness and exerting effort, you create resistance. And resistance keeps your desired end result from you. So releasing resistance is key to getting what you want.

How do you release resistance? Relax. Let go of your attachment to it; confidently know your dreams are manifesting; act as if it couldn't turn out any other way. This doesn't mean you don't have to do take some action to get what you want, but only take inspired action. By that I mean do things that feel good. Let the Universe do the "work."

What would you do if you had your dream body or dream job or whatever dream you're after? Take a friend out for a celebration dinner? Sleep in? Schedule a massage? Whatever it is you would do when you get what you want, do it now. It's the signal the Universe has been waiting for that you're ready.

Many have found, as have I, that the phone call you're anxiously waiting for comes after a break at the movies. Or you meet the perfect contact for your new project while wakeboarding at the lake with your brother. Or the inspiration needed to get past that last obstacle comes while playing in the park with the dog.

Working hard is overrated; let the Universe do the work for you! Release your resistance now by practicing the art of goofing off. And watch your desires manifest like magic.
