Wishing is wonderful. Keep doing that. But recognize that the rapid and repeated movement of your own ass is part of the manifesting process.

A common test the universe likes to give me is the "How committed are you?" test.

As in...

How committed are you to doing fulfilling work? If I take away your income, kick you out of your home, and drive you debt into debt and bankruptcy, will you break? Will you give up your commitment and go get a corporate job you dislike, just to pay your bills? Or will you prove to me that you will not give up?

How committed are you to having deeply loving and fulfilling intimate relationships in your life? Will you release your marriage and all that entails, endure harsh public criticism, accept a long-distance relationship, and risk losing potential business just to enjoy the deepest and most loving relationships? Or will you give up this commitment and slink back into more standard models of relating, even if they aren't fulfilling?

How is the universe testing your commitment right now? Are you passing this test?

Get going in what you want to learn. You can transform yourself in 20 hours. 
You can learn any skill in only 20 hours of mindful practice
[VIDEO 18 minutes]

So says Josh Kaufmann, the author of "The Personal MBA". Forget about 10,000 hours (it's the amount of time of practice it takes to be at the top of a very competitive, narrow field). The problems humans have with learning are emotional (we are afraid of starting, not afraid of actually doing the hard work) and almost never intellectual.

If you're into rapid learning, check out this 19 minute video, or study how Tim Ferriss learns stuff (he's a learning freak).

Don't be too timid or squeamish about your actions. All life is is an experiement. The more experiements you make the better.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whoever relies on the "Great Way" in governing men doesn't try to force issues or defeat enemies by force of arms.
 For every force there is a counterforce.
 Violence, even well intentioned, always rebounds upon oneself.

The Master does his job and then stops.
He understands that the universe is forever out of control,
and that trying to dominate events goes
against the current of the "Great Way".
Because he believes in himself,
he doesn't try to convince others.
Because he is content with himself,
he doesn't need others' approval.
Because he accepts himsefl,
the whole world accepts him.

Great Way = Tao (universal source)
