“You manifest what you believe, not what you want.” — Sonia Ricotti
What is manifesting?
Manifestation is bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief.
Intention and positive affirmations are just the tip of the iceberg, when it comes to manifesting. You must take proactive steps toward whatever it is you desire, in order for your dreams to become reality.
Set SMART Goals
To turn your dreams into reality, you must have a sense of direction. Where are you going? How do you get there? What does that look like? Most importantly, why? The more specific you make your goals, the clearer your vision will be. You need to be able to imagine yourself, living out your dream and believe that it is possible.
Put in the hard work.
Once you have set your goals, break them down into smaller steps and get to work. Create daily, weekly and monthly goals that are achievable. The more intention and commitment you give to your goals the more confident you will become. Each small win is a victory to be celebrated. Wake up each day with intention, live in the moment and focus on the tasks at hand. The hardest part is getting started, commit to just a few minutes of an activity and see where it takes you. For example, reading one page of a book or spending 5 minutes on the treadmill.
Give yourself a fighting chance.
Once you start working towards your dream, this is where it gets hard. Self doubt, imposter syndrome and fear will start creeping in. This is when you have to become your biggest cheerleader, surround yourself with positive people and begin those positive affirmations. Create a mantra that you can repeat to yourself. Remind yourself of why you must work toward your goal and the life you are going to enjoy once you get there.
This is your secret weapon! Remember that each day is a blessing, write down three things you are grateful for every day. This is a great way to improve your mood, relishing in the good in your life will uplift your spirit. Fill up your cup with a boost of positive emotions.
We only live this life once, make the most of it. Take control of your life by turning off the auto-pilot and living with intention. Only you can make your dreams come true, believe in yourself and work towards them.
