You Gotta Faith It Till You Make It

If you’ve coached with me before or have been in one of my courses, you’ll no doubt be familiar with this question.

The reason I’ve got so much love for it (Hubba Hubba!) is that, it’s such an easy way to get yourself into that sweet spot where you actually believe in and expect your desires to manifest.

And as any deliberate creator knows, life unfolds according to what we believe and expect to happen. Not what we want or wish to happen, but what we expect to happen.

Yet, even knowing this, many of us are skilled and practiced at entertaining thoughts that create doubt and reinforce beliefs that contradict our desires.

We are fluent in every reason under the sun why we can’t get a better job (tough economy), or be in a loving relationship (all the good guys are taken), or have a healthier body (old age) – and well, that’s gonna be Kryptonite to getting what we want!

But with this one question, you can swiftly dissolve doubts and stack the odds in your favour.

 That question is:

"Why do I believe I can have this?"

Whatever ideal or achievement you are working towards, you have to give yourself a reason to believe that you can have it! That will help usher it in.

Maybe you believe:

  • You can have a loving and nurturing relationship because you are a high-value man (or woman): you are smart, confident, authentic, and charismatic. And your ideal mate will see all of this, and will adore and respect you for it. They’ll want to commit to you - not out of need, but because they want to.

  • You can build a profitable business because the world-over there are people looking for a product or service just like yours to enhance their lives. And when they find you, they’ll know you are worth every single penny of your fee and will jump at the chance to work with you.
  • Sure, there may be many other professionals who are just as skilled and experienced as you are, but no one does the job like you. No one has your unique perspective, charm and personality – and the right employer is going to value all of you and be eager to hire you for your dream job.

So, why do you believe you can have what you want?

As you find answers to that question, you are opening your imagination to greater possibilities and claiming your desire.

You are literally creating new neural pathways and training your brain to believe in your ability to manifest your desire – and that cues the Universe to send it your way.

Yes, it may take practice and patience to find answers to that question, but it’ll be totally worth it:

  • Nourishing your goals with faith and expectation is one of the most delightful feelings. It will empower you to put your whole heart in your endeavour. And as far as self-fulfilling prophecies go (well, that’s what beliefs are), wouldn’t you rather one that delights you?

What this question is NOT:

  • This question is not an opportunity to plead or justify. You are not comparing. You are not saying you deserve the spoils at the end of the pillage because you worked the darn hardest or fastest. You are simply staking your claim on your desire because you are worth it and you CAN have it.

This is your official invitation to try it out for yourself. Pick a goal, ideal, dream or ambition and ask yourself: "Why do I believe I can have this?"

Give yourself at least a few reasons to believe you can have what you want, and tell me how that feels? Hopeful, right?

The more you engage that question, the quicker you'll find yourself moving closer to that relaxed feeling of trust and anticipation that your goal is attainable - and when you do, you are you going to hit a home run:

You are going to be frolicking in the ocean with the love of your life; or choosing the furnishings for your dream home; or scheduling appointments with your new clients. (And I want to hear all about it... so keep me in the loop).

That question again:

"Why do I believe I can have this?"

Here's to unleashing the magic of believing!

Thanks for dropping by. You are adored.

Struggling with a naysayer

Don’t you just love it when you share your tender dream with someone and they immediately catch your enthusiasm for it? They might even pat you on the back and encourage you to go for it, guns ablaze. These are the best kind of people! They are for keeps.

But there is also a breed of people who will throw a wet blanket on your dreams without a second thought.

These people stand ready with ‘helpful advice’ about why you are destined to fail if you pursue your dream: it’s hard to get published; you can’t make money doing that; you are not qualified enough; you are going through a phase.

Sounds like a naysayer! And if you listen to a naysayer long enough, you will start to believe that maybe you are crazy for wanting a life that’s less than ordinary.

So how do you stop a naysayer from extinguishing your life-dreams?

Here is what works for me:

1. Shield your dreams

Your dreams and aspirations are sacred; be mindful who you share them with. In her book “The Secret Door To Success,” Prosperity Teacher, Florence Scovel Shinn, writes that talking too much about your affairs scatters your forces and brings you up against a high wall. I take this to mean talking about our dreams opens the door to other people’s doubts and scepticism.

Think about it - once you get someone else's opinions in the mix of your creation, not only do you have your own expectations and beliefs to manage, you now have the added task of managing their stuff as well.

So it's worth being very deliberate about who you bring into the mix of your creation.

2. Tune them out

Everyone gets to choose whatever they want to believe, and just because a naysayer says or believes something doesn't mean you have to believe it too. Don’t get defensive, don’t argue your point, don’t try to sway them to your side. Just switch them off and build confidence in your plans. Live and let live!

My favorite 'watch me, I'm gonna to do it anyway' affirmation comes in the form of Eminem's Not Afraid song.

3. Hang out with a cheer squad

Align yourself with people who are supportive and see potential in you. By the same token, seek to inspire possibility and empowerment in others, and break out into a victory dance for their every win.

Use these affirmations to attract ideal people and relationships:

  • My friends and I encourage each other’s growth and success.
  • I only attract people who love and support me.

4. Have faith in your goals

Before anyone else in the world believes in your dream, you have to believe in it. Believe that something good can happen, and then focus your heart, creativity and energy into bringing it to life. Do this above all else and you are going to hit a home run.

To amp up your belief that your treasure is within reach, ask yourself these questions:

  • What is my heart's true desire? - This is your chance to get clear on what YOU want, not what you think is possible or what others want for you. What do you really want?
  • Why do I want it? - We want the things we want because we believe having them is going to make us feel good. Whether that good feeling is success, joy, satisfaction, relief, etc., start engaging it now and your dream will not seem so foreign and unachievable.
  • Why do I believe I can have it? - Maybe you know someone who has achieved a similar goal, look at your past successes and accomplishments, your skills, etc. 

5. Be your #1 fan

We are such sublime creatures you and I, and we deserve the very best that life has to offer - unlimited abundance in whatever shape or form we desire. Trust in yourself and in your worthiness, then nothing anyone says will sway you off your path to success. The best way to cultivate this sense of worth and self-belief is by practicing LOTS of self-love and self-acceptance.

Seriously, the system is set up for your success; choose to believe you can succeed and hold onto that thought no matter what the outer circumstances and opinions of others.

You get to write how your story ends, not the naysayers.

Hey, The Beatles were told they had “no future in show business,” whilst only five people turned up to see the Wright brothers’ first flight in their “heavier-than-air machine.”

Go forth and birth your dream into the world, we will be cheering you on.

Take This Job And Cherish It

As I get ready to kick off a brand new round of Manifest Your Dream Job round, I asked myself the single most powerful tip I could offer anyone wanting to manifest a new job and thrive in their career.

The answer: Love your current job.

Which can be easier said that done. Especially when there's a stark contrast between where we are now and where we want to be.

So we end up focusing on the very stuff about our current employment that's got us dissatisfied, hence bringing attention to the lack of what we want. As a result, our general mood when we think of manifesting our happy, dreamy new job is one of frustration.

But successful manifesting is about being in alignment with our desired outcome. That simply means, feeling good about what we want. And we can’t feel good about what we want when we are frustrated and pushing against "not having it." 

Meaning, the way out isn't to struggle against what is, but to embrace it ...

  • We have to make peace with whatever conditions we’ve been trying to escape.

Embracing where you are in life is not about giving up on your dreams and goals. It’s about acceptance and freedom.

It’s where the good vibes start and it's what paves the path to allowing new and exciting things to manifest in your career - promotions, increased income, recognition, etc.

So, if you've been feeling frustrated because you haven’t landed that dream job yet, and have been resenting where you are, try out these tips to point yourself in the directionof your dream job manifest (practicing even just one of these can make all the difference):

1. Stop complaining about your job

To your dog. Your partner. Or your sympathetic friends. Every time you tell the story of how bad you have it in your job, the Universe is hearing it as a request for more please. Especially if you are telling that story with passion! So you just have to acknowledge that where you are isn’t perfect, but find a way to not get stuck in the story of how bad it is.

2. See it as a stepping stone

You are where you are supposed to be right now so you can go where you are destined to be. You don’t see the big picture but Universe can see it all. It’s got it all under control and if you let it, it’ll take you on the path that prepares you to receive the best. In the meantime, just relax, be easy on yourself, and be willing to see your job as part of a bigger picture.

3. Find positive aspects about your job

Find something that you genuinely like and appreciate about your job. It can be anything. What about the fact you get paid … even if it’s not the best paying job, it puts a roof over your head, maybe even affords you neon colored undies. Perhaps it's in a good location. Or there's an elevator. Anything  that turns your mind around and gives you a foothold into a more positive vibe will serve you well.

4. Note what you like about your colleagues

It doesn’t matter who’s said what when to whom, you can always find some golden nugget to appreciate about your colleagues. Who’s friendly and always makes you smile? Who has the best jokes and stories? Really notice the best qualities of your workmates and milk them for all their worth to make yourself feel good, better, and happier about your job. This will also improve your work relationships and make a world of difference in your ability to enjoy your work.

5. Treat it like it’s the one

I firmly believe that we all deserve to be happy, fulfilled and well rewarded in our jobs, doing what we love to do. But this joy and happiness isn’t waiting for you in some dream job somewhere. It starts right here, with you, where you are, with the way you treat your current job. You have to cherish the job you've got and treat it like “it’s the one” if you expect it to give back to you, generously. That’s why I say in the live Manifest Your Dream Job program that your job is an offering of love, an offering of yourself. So, do your work with love and love yourself in your current job. Then watch as the prospering power of Love works it's magic and miracles in your career.

Sure you can still manifest a new job even if you don’t clean up your vibe. But guess what? Whatever conditions have been plaguing you in your current job will follow you to your new one. It’ll be different faces and different names, but the same old problems.

So really just find a way to love your job and be as happy as possible where you are. That joy sends a signal to the Universe that it has to match one way or other – with more success and joy where you are right now. Or better yet, with the manifestation of your ultimate crazy happy dream job.

Even if you are not looking to manifest a new job, you spend so much time at work that you owe it to yourself to be happy in your current job anyway.

Happy Manifesting!
