Going with the flow is hard especially for people whose lives are so structured. Also, for some, it is hard to trust the flow to be in the best interest of your life.
The dilemma arises on whether you are the master of your destiny or the flow is? You are actually the master of your actions and your thoughts and your destiny is the byproduct.
If you are clear about your goals and consistently work towards them, the attraction towards them is powerful.
Every situation good or bad leads you to your outcome. You become a magnet attracting circumstances and situations leading to your goal when your thoughts, actions, and faith align!
