Do you try to plan every area of your life? Do you project your schedule onto the future and do everything in your power to make sure things turn out the way you want?

If so, we have a lot in common. I’m a recovering over-planner. I used to try to plan everything. I tried to plan every professional goal. I tried to plan exactly when and how I’d get married. And guess what? Exactly zero of my plans happened the way I projected!

But now I know that’s a good thing. Instead, my life has unfolded in ways far better than I ever could have imagined. When we loosen our grip and strengthen our faith, miracles present themselves. The truth is, God laughs when you make plans!

There is a wise and loving force working on our behalf at all times. Call it God, call it the Universe, call it angels, call it intuition. Whatever you call it, just know that there is a power greater than you working on your behalf. And this power has a better plan than you do!

When we stop trying to control everything, God comes through!

In this video I share a story, plus tips about how to let go of the need to plan and control the course of your life. If you’re trying to live on a schedule, this video is for you!
