Let Go, Let God

Buddha by Gayle Etcheverry

126 – May 6

“Good morning. This is God. I will be handling all your problems today. I will not need your help. So, have a good day.”—Unknown


I was stamping my foot and moaning about my life when my friend, Jennifer, reminded me that there was only so much I could do to make my dreams come to pass. Then I had to relax and let God take over. A hard lesson, that. Jennifer then repeated this poem to me, which I never forgot:

As children bring their broken toys

With tears for us to mend,

I brought my broken dreams to God,

Because He was my friend.

But then instead of leaving Him

In peace to work alone,

I hung around and tried to help,

With ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried,

“How can you be so slow?”

“My child,” He said, “What could I do?

“You never did let go!”—Unknown

So much in life is a matter of timing. The sun comes up at dawn, not before. The ship sails on the tide, not before. I have to do all that I can do, then let go and let God. As Marianne Williamson says, “His ways aren’t all that mysterious.”

God knows what time it is. You’re on His schedule. Trust.

Today’s Affirmation:
“I live in buoyant assurance of my continuing abundance!”

Do you keep statistics on where your clients are coming from?

I did a free teleclass “women Don’t Ask” one year. I had over 100 people registered for the call, 119 attended and others were sent the recording and listened later at their leisure.

Subsequently, I started two 8-week teleclasses with 9 people in Monday nights and 6 in Tuesday afternoons. I always like to know how people first heard about me and how the enrollment process went, so here are my statistics:

First heard or read about me:

Books – 4
Guest on another Teleclass – 2
In person speech at event – 2
Twitter – 1 (my first Twitter client!)
Facebook – 1
Guest article in Newsletter – 1
Networking groups – 2 (one from early 90s and one from 2003)
Internet link – 1
Referral – 1

Enrollment process:

*Woman – 6 emails, 8 phone calls
Woman – 2 emails, 5 phone calls
*Woman – 1shoppingcart (several phone calls 3 years ago, on newsletter list)
Woman – 2 phone calls
Woman – 1shoppingcart, several phone calls over 8 months
*Woman – 2 emails, 1 phone call
*Woman – 1 email, 1 phone call
*Woman – 1 email, 1 phone call
Woman – 2 emails, 2 phone calls
*Woman – 1shoppingcart, 1 phone call
*Woman – 5 emails, 3 phone calls
Man – 3 emails, 1 phone call
Woman – 2 emails, 1 phone call
Woman – 1 phone call
Woman – 3 emails, 2 phone calls

* 7 listened to my “Women Don’t Ask” free teleclass.

Most of the people have been on my mailing lists for some time and the subject matter of the teleclass really resonated with them. The conference call service I use sends a call report afterward, listing the callers names and telephone numbers, so I printed out the list and started calling people. A lot of them were strongly considering enrolling in my course, but the personal call from me tipped the balance. I always say “the money is in the phone” and “it’s not cold calling, it’s gold calling”!

Ps – the “let go, let God” happens AFTER you do the work.

God knows what time it is. You’re on His schedule. Trust.

Prosperity is a habit. You have to practice it every day.
