I don’t know about you, but I feel like God, the creator of our universe has gifted us with a fresh start; a new opportunity to manifest our dreams and achieve our goals. Some of the things that we’d hoped we’d accomplish in 2019 didn’t get done, for one reason or another. But, today, I encourage you to shift your focus onto this present moment . There’s nothing you can do about the past, but you can do a whole lot about your future. You are creating your future now, in the moment you have right here, right now!

As we begin to shift our focus onto this amazing opportunity we have NOW to create our ideal futures, I want to share with you a few tips that will help you manifest your dreams and achieve your goals in 2020.

Practical Tips for Manifesting Your Dreams & Achieving Your Goals

In no particular order..

  • Act as if you already have it
  • Visualize
  • Meditate before bed and when you awake in the morning
  • Write and speak your goals daily
  • Listen to affirmations as you sleep
  • Keep a gratitude journal
  • Script in a manifestation journal
  • Surround yourself with and learn from people who are already where you want to be
  • Use a vision board or vision book
  • Set goal that are in alignment with your ideal lifestyle
  • Set goals, break them down into small steps, create a plan and THEN take action
  • Set goals that YOU want to achieve NOT goals that sound good or that someone else thinks you should pursue
  • Pursue your goals with passion or not at all
  • Dream car? Take it for test drive and get a picture with you sitting in it and add the picture to your vision board or as a screensaver on your phone.
  • Don’t have a vision board or always on the go? Try this. Have the screensaver on your cellphone, desktop or laptop rotate between photos of things that would be on your vision board. This is a great alternative to having a vision board, because it will be in front of you ALL the time right?
  • Dream house? Take a tour of your dream home, even if you’re not ready to buy yet and take a picture standing in front or inside of it. Add it to your vision board, vision book or save it as your screensaver.
  • Be mindful of your mindset. More specifically; the thoughts you think and the words you speak. Positive vibes only! Here’s a trick: When you catch yourself saying “I can’t” or “I don’t have..” Do this: 1) Stop yourself mid-sentence or as soon as you become aware OR 2) Correct yourself mid-sentence simply by adding “yet” at the end. For example, “I don’t have enough money.. yet!” Remember, the words you speak are just as important as the thoughts you think and the actions you take when manifesting your dreams!

Manifest is defined as clearly shown or visible. 2020 is the year for your goals & dreams to be clear shown or visible. This is the year to manifest.

I entered 2020 knowing my word of the year was going to be MANIFEST. On New Years Eve, I attended a church service and guess what happened? The pastor preached a sermon stating that 2020 is the year for Reaping! My goodness, if that didn’t make me want to jump out of my seat and run a few laps around the building.. Listen, that was all the confirmation I needed. If this is the year of reaping, then that means that 2020 is the year to see results – clearly shown or visible. This is the year to manifest! However, you can only REAP what you have sown! You can only manifest BY investing in yourself and in your future. You can only manifest by putting in the work necessary to reap the benefits.

This is your year my friend, to manifest your dream and to achieve some goals! If you have a clear vision and are ready to take action, then the tips I have shared above with HELP you MANIFEST! But remember, you’ll only reap what you sow!

Happy Manifesting!

7 Day Goal Success Challenge: Day 6 – Identify Motivating Factors

Welcome to Day 6 of the Goal Succeess Challenge!

Today is all about identifying your motivating factors.

This is not that same concept as your WHY factor. This is where you will identify which specific tools will motivate you.

Your motivating factors should remind you of and reinforce your WHY factor.

Remember, your WHY factor is simply your core reason for pursuing your goal – which should be significant enough to motivate you to keep going, even when the going gets tough.

Your motivating factor(s) are going to be something tangible that will REMIND you of your WHY factor.

There are many things you can use as motivating factors! Here are a few examples I use:

Vision Board

I have 2 vision boards. The one above sits on my dresser directly across from my bed. I usually do my meditations before I go to sleep at night, so its nice having my vision board right there to look at when I’m having difficulty focusing my wandering thoughts.

My best advice would be to place your vision board in a place where you’ll see it the most often! I’m away from home most of the time, but when I’m home, I’m in my office or bedroom the most. So, I have my 1 – 5 yr vision board in my office area and my 1yr vision board in my bedroom.

Journals

I have 3 journals. One, I use for scripting (writing your goals and dreams in presentense, as if is happening in that moment or already has happened!

The 2nd journal is my Gratitude journal.

The 3rd journal I use for writing out my goals. So, back in December of 2016, I attended a 3 day workshop called Publish a Book and Grow Rich! I learned a lot about writing and publishing a book, but I also learned a lot about mindset transformation and manifestation. One of the things I learned, I’ve been doing ever since the day I learned it.. Writing out my goals in the form of “I am” and “I have.” As, it was taught to me, we’re writing out our captains orders “captian & crew. The idea behind that, in short, is tht the act of writing out your goals is your concious mind (the captain) giving direction to your subconscious mind (the crew). Your subconscious mind is what you can call your “higher-self” … but, more on that another time.

A few tips for writing out your goals:

* Hand write your goals daily.

* It’s okay if you miss a day(s) in betweeen. Just get back to it when you can. Keep in mind that consistency is key.

* Record the date each time you write out your goals. It’s a simple way to hold yourself accountable.

* Use a journal thats small enough to fit in your purse or to carry with you on the go. If you’re like me, it’s easy to use business as an excuse – keeping it with eliminates the excuse and allows you to get it in when you can.

* Read them out loud with emotion!

Vision Book

More Ideas:

  • Abundance Wall (Write yourself a check!)
  • Calendar/Planner
  • Habit Tracker Apps

The purpose of identifying motivating factors is to help you stay focused on your WHAT (goal) & your WHY(the reason why you want to achieve your goal). As you can see, I use many different things to reinforce my WHY factor. I encourage you to use 1 or as many as you feel you need. I have found these to be helpful, especially when I’m in traffic… I pull out my vision book and remind myself that even being stuck in traffic is a necessary “unfortunate” but necessary part of the process. And, then I pull out my gratitude journal and jot down a few things that I’m grateful for. When pursuing your goals and manifesting your dreams, it’s important to maintain a positive mindset as much as possible.
