Manifest Don’t Stress
Well, we’ve made it to the middle of 2018. My that went by so fast. I know this is a time where many of us are reflecting on all of the goals we set at the beginning of the year to see how far we have come. I’m sure we all have things we excelled about as well as disappointed with things we could have done better on or didn’t achieve at all. However, I believe it is a time to celebrate. Celebrate what? Celebrate making it to the middle of a new year. Many did not make it this far, but we did, and the beautiful part of it all is that we have time to regroup, refocus, and refresh. Please understand having a successful year doesn’t mean accomplishing every goal, it means we set goals and at least made some strides in working towards them. Most of us achieved at least one of our goals and that alone is a WIN in my book.
Now that we’ve taken time to reflect, celebrate, and re-evaluate, let’s set a tone to manifest our dreams and goals so that they become a reality. We all know that in order to see the fruits of our labor, we must first make a plan and then execute it. There is a time and a place for everything. First, we must plant the seed in good soil, water, it, and give it the proper amount of sunlight in order for the roots to grow strong and deep which will in turn bear fruit. Once the fruit is here, we can revel in the manifestation of our hard work. Don’t you want to see your manifestation sooner than later? I’m sure you do. I’m going to let you in on my three sure-fire ways to manifest your goals.
Write the Vision and Make it Plain
In order to achieve a goal, we must first see ourselves at the finish line. If you cannot see it, then you cannot have it. This is a simple concept in theory, but very hard for many to grasp. It’s like being a pro athlete. You have to see yourself winning the championship game or being the MVP first before it will manifest in your life. This is the same with everything in our lives. First, we must see the end result of what we want, then we need to write it down in detail so that we never forget it. Next, plaster that vision everywhere. Reflect on it often and speak it into existence even though you haven’t made it to the finish line just yet. Our words shape our world and our vision determines our destiny.
Get you a notebook specifically for your goals. Write down the date and the goal you want to achieve, reflect on the vision you wrote often and then be sure to document when you reach that goal by writing down the accomplished date.
Trust me, if you do this for every goal you want to achieve and then keep a running record over the course of a year or two, you will be amazed at how much you actually managed to accomplish.
Submit Your Goals and Dreams to God
The word of God says that we make plans, but God orders our steps. To me involving God in our plans is a pivotal step in them being successful. It is easy to get overwhelmed when you have so many amazing dreams. Trust me, I know this first hand. One thing we need to understand is that we are limited in our human ability, but God is limitless. Since we each have a unique plan and purpose for our lives, it is necessary to consult the one who crafted our purpose. This will save us a lot of time, money, and stress. Now, this takes some practice and diligence. It is something I am still working on myself. The beauty of consulting God is that he can see ahead where we can’t and therefore provide specific instruction that will help us avoid costly and stressful mistakes in our journey to success. Afterall, what passenger wants to fly without a pilot steering the plane in the right direction to get them to their destination safely? Uh…no one.
Get your notebook out and say this prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for all of the wonderful dreams you have given me. I recognize that you planted each and every one of these dreams in my heart for a reason and I need you to help me bring them to past. God, I submit all of my plans to you (reference your specific vision) and I ask that you guide me with your all-seeing eye. Allow me to meet the people that are meant to help me. Open every door and window of opportunity that I am supposed to go through and close all of those that are not meant for me. Help me to always hear your voice and never leave you out of any of my plans. Help me to remain humble as I achieve these successes. Thank you in advance for bringing my great future to fruition. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
Now the last step is where it gets real…
Get to Work
As one of my former gym trainers use to say, “don’t nothing work, but work”. Let’s face it, as much as we would like to write it down, speak it into existence, and then poof; it appears, it is not that simple. We actually have to put in the work. James 2:26 it says, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also”. This simply means we bring life to our dreams by doing the work to make them a reality.
You may be thinking where do I start? Well, I am one of those firm believers that the most important part is just starting. I believe the path to success is different for us all and is often determined by just starting. Many people miss out on manifesting their dreams simply because they spend all of their time talking about it and planning it, but they never actually start. Manifesting is just a mirage if there is no action taken on the mission. Stop mind maneuvering your dream and start manifesting it by putting in the work.
In your notebook where you have documented your goals. I want you to write down 3 action steps to take this month that will move you closer to manifesting. Be sure that these action steps are measurable and attainable. Do not overwhelm yourself. Many small steps lead us to giant dreams becoming a reality.
So let’s recap my 3 steps to manifestation state that you must first write the vision, then submit the written vision to God to obtain grace, favor, and direction, and lastly, you need to get to work on your dreams by taking action.
You can do this. I believe in you.
Until next time lovies…let’s manifest our destiny!
