Do you Make these 3 Mistakes with Manifesting Your Goals?
Any day offers a new start to set goals and manifest dreams!
Here’s part of a helpful email I recently received* which shares 3 mistakes frequently made in manifesting.
Mistake 1: Thinking You Don’t Have Enough Time for It
How often have you told someone (or yourself) that you don’t have time for something? We only have 24 hours in a day—and you alone decide what you do in those hours.
It seems to be more convenient to say “I don’t have the time” rather than saying “I don’t want to use my time on it.” Can you feel the difference?
In the first phrase, you haven’t taken ownership of your time—someone else has the time. In the second phrase, you take full responsibility for your time. When you say this, it may upset some people. In reality, you are just being honest and when you start doing this, you will attract more honest people in your life.
Over time, you will get more comfortable expressing yourself in this way and people will start appreciating your honesty. You will see the rewards.
So, do you have the time? Your dreams will come true if you make the time available to manifest them.
Mistake 2: You Don’t Like How It Is, Therefore You Try to Change It
You cannot change what you don’t like! Why? Too much of your attention is focused on the problem rather than on the solution.
Start with accepting your current situation. Take full ownership of it. Understand that it is somehow a result of your thoughts and actions, even if you don’t understand why. Forgive yourself and others. We all make mistakes. Making mistakes (and understanding them) is how each of us learns to move on through life. Simply understand that your past and current actions did not lead to the results that you have expected. That’s it—don’t take it too seriously.
Only after you have gained a neutral perspective towards your current solution is it time to take a new approach.
Mistake 3: You Are Discouraged – Therefore You Give Up
You had the best intentions. You put in all your effort and you certainly believed in your goals and dreams. However, nothing really changed. You are frustrated and discouraged. You start to believe that it is not meant to be. Maybe God does not want you to achieve your goals. You start finding all kinds of excuses, why your dreams did not manifest. Finally you give up.
This is the place where dreams vaporize, and where evaporating goals become a part of history that nobody will ever see.
What to do? Hold your intention and reconnect with it at all times. And if your ego gets too involved, don’t try to force it to happen. Rather allow yourself enough time and space to let your intention manifest in its own way and under its own conditions.
Pay attention to the coincidences in your life, as they will show you the way. Acknowledge them, be grateful to what you have and then act on whatever opportunities come up.
There are no unrealistic dreams; there are only unrealistic time frames.
