Being consciously aware of how we create our own reality is a really great and powerful thing, but it's also made a lot of people feel bad that they aren't creating what they want even when they are 'doing all the work'.
Sometimes our soul has other, better plans for us than what we think we want. Other times it is a matter of timing: "Timing is more important than we can consciously perceive. Thinking we are above divine timing is like thinking we can control nature. Divine timing has a rhythm and a flow that is perfectly co-ordinated and much peace comes from really accepting that. Your soul knows what it is doing on a higher level even if from your perspective things are going way slower than you would like."
