Even Albert Einstein enjoyed life coaching.

Ever noticed how when you’ve made up your mind to go in a different direction with a project that all hell breaks loose? And everything that can go wrong does?

We often refer to this as Murphy’s law. My friend Dennis, who’s a ski instructor, knew better. I first met Dennis on a work ski trip in Chamonix, France. At the time I was desperately trying to get out of and away from a bad relationship that was a toxic influence. Every time I tried to break up or get away from it, life would tempt me again. Things would all of a sudden go really well, and it would make it more difficult to just dump the whole thing.

While talking to Dennis (who, by the way, is also the person who introduced me to life coaching), he nodded his head and explained Murphy’s law in a way that made more sense to me. It goes like this: When you make a big decision that changes your route, the universe will almost always test you. That’s when things can get confusing or drift off course. The best way to combat this is to be prepared.

Prepare with today’s Action Steps:

Actionsteps1) Be clear about what you want. Take time to really think through your ultimate goals and what actions you need to take to get there.

2) Know that your journey will not be just sunshine and roses; there might be some dark days and thorns down the road, too.

3) Stick to your guns. The more you show the universe what you want, the less she’ll mess it all up. That is basically the Quantum Physics Law of Attraction, which, put very simply, means:“You attract what you set your intention to be.” Double tap to tweet it now!

Albert Einstein said it best:“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
