Loved reading the post Steve. One of your originals, keepers, and all-timers.
But here's the thing -- life can be seen as a training ground for learning how to manifest. We all get a life to learn, and if we don't learn, we come back to try again.
The reason why some people are better than others at manifesting is -- drum roll please -- that's just the way the universe works. Or, perhaps more correctly, that's just the way the universe is. Nothing to get upset about.
