On our podcast, we recently posted an episode about how to manifest your dreams. But not in the ‘woo-woo’ way you might thing about. What do you want in your life? Do you have the desire to make it happen? It helps if you have a best friend who wants to dream with you!
Using the Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is about how we attract things in our life based on what we focus on, both the good and the bad. Using the Law of Attraction to manifest your dreams means you are actively placing yourself in the realm of possibility.
The truth is that the Law of Attraction works 100% of the time. You don’t have to believe in it, or even know about it for it to work. You will attract the things you think about. You will create your own reality based on your thoughts. It works. So put it to work for you!
7 Ways to Manifest Your Dreams
1. Dream big.
The ability to dream big is what has fueled historic changes, great invention, and mind-boggling innovation in life. You have to believe that anything, absolutely anything, is possible. Ask the Universe for more than you need. Be greedy! Your dreams need to be bigger than your fears of achieving them. Richard Wilkins wrote, “miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears.”
2. Get specific.
Knowing that whatever you focus on, you attract into your life means you have to get specific about what you are focusing on. Make sure you keep your focus in the positive too. Do not ask yourself what you don’t want, specifically identify what you do want in your life.
3. Put the work in.
Take a minute and think about how much time and effort you are actually putting into making your dreams reality. What would happen if you spent 20 percent of your time to work on your dreams?
4. Help others.
Helping others make their dreams real is a great way to focus on your own dreams. Giving assistance to others with no expectation of getting something in return. The Universe will give it back to you in other ways. See others through eyes of love. Choose to find ways to spread love and joy to everyone you meet. It will come back in surprising ways.
Give your dreams your attention. Don’t let life, kids or anything else knock you off your path. There are some fantastic tools both online and offline to keep you accountable. Journals, goal setting apps, or visualization notes you post on your bathroom mirror can all help you focus on the ways you can manifest your dreams.
6. Be thankful.
You can’t attract positivity if you spend time being envious of what others have or do. Be appreciative of what you have right now and honor the work that has been done to get you to this point. When you make a mistake, and you will, be thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow.
The Universe may not manifest your dreams in the exact ways you think it should. Or when you think it should happen. Or where you think it should happen. Let the Universe move you towards your dreams in its own way. You can’t control the Universe.
Now go ahead and manifest your dreams.
