Webster’s New World College Dictionary defines the word as “palpable, evident; to make clear, show plainly, reveal; to show itself.” Sounds like magic, but it is as simple as this quote by Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can or can’t, you are right.”
I don’t know about you, but I would much prefer to think I can all of the time. I can create my own reality, and I choose that reality to be one that revolves around the basic concept of “I can.”
The first step in manifesting your dreams is to write them down. Once you commit your dreams to paper they become a real goal that you can now break down into steps necessary to achieving your dream. Napoleon Hill says it all: “Whatever your mind can conceive and can believe, it can achieve.”
What is it that you want to manifest in 2015? Even Pablo Picasso once said, “Everything you can imagine is real.” Is it a new job, new relationship, more income or better health? Sit down and think of your dream situation and then commit it to paper. Goals are really just dreams with a timeline. Mark Victor Hansen said, “You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands, your own.”
If you really want to “up the ante,” I recommend that you share your written dream with at least one person. I am a firm believer in the more people you tell the more chances for success. Another great thing about sharing your dreams is getting feedback from those who support you. Anything is possible. Wayne Dyer has said, “The power of intention is the power to manifest, to create, to live a life of unlimited abundance and to attract into your life the right people at the right moments.” When I decided to go back to work I knew exactly the type of job I wanted. I decided I wanted to open my own business, Sprouts plantable seed paper products, to educate people and children about saving the environment, work with children and charitable organizations, and write a Green Gossip Newsletter informing our customers and followers about what we are doing with charitable organizations and where we will be showing our products. I wanted to make a difference and give back to the community and also win Small Business of the Year. I knew exactly who to call, my mentor, who was thrilled to give me several ideas. He was on board with my dreams. Not only did I get exactly what I wanted, I love what I am doing and love the people I am involved with and the charitable organizations that I support. My other dream was to be Woman of the Year, and I accomplished that this year and what an honor.
The power of intention is amazing if you truly believe that you are worthy to reap the rewards. This year I want to work on getting more free time for myself, which is always a challenge for me. All things are possible if you believe them to be so. Carl Sandburg said, “Nothing happens but first a dream.”
There will be obstacles in your path. There will be naysayers who tell you that you can’t succeed, won’t succeed, and the best one, you will never make any money doing that. Don’t listen to those people. Most of them never believed they could reach their own dreams, so why should you be able to reach yours.
James Allen said, “A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master gardner of his soul, the director of his life.” If you are passionate about something, if it brings you great joy, then follow your true desires. Miracles will happen. Watch out for past history playing a part in your future. You may have tried other things in the past that may not have worked out as you expected. Use those as learning experiences to succeed in the future, not as reasons to stop you from following a new dream.
I wish all of you a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous 2015!
