The First Step To Manifest Anything? Belief.
It sounds so easy. Too easy, actually. Really? All one has to do to manifest something is to believe it is possible for it to manifest? How can something as abstract as a belief bring forth a physical manifestation? Let’s first look at the big picture of this wisdom.
We can all agree that if humans decided they could never step foot on the moon, they would in fact, never step foot on the moon. Yes, scientists presented theories that made it seem very plausible to reach our nearest satellite. Mathematicians provided equations that strengthened the idea that it could be possible to reach our moon.
No theory or equation offered complete assurance that walking on the moon was possible. To make this concept a proven fact, a human would need to physically walk on the moon.
The scientists and mathematicians gave man confidence in the belief. That assurance led man to take action towards their goal. Walking on the moon all began with the belief that it could be done. The belief became a reality after forward action was taken.
There were surely people who thought walking on the moon was a crazy idea. No matter how many solid theories, equations, and relative examples there were, someone, somewhere could argue that walking on the moon was not possible.
There may have been opposing theories and equations showing how walking on the moon could end in devastation. Those who believed in failure, were surely just as passionate about their perspective, as those who thought about possibility.
Before anything can manifest, two beliefs exist:
- Yes, this could possibly manifest
- No way, this could never manifest
The first thing determining whether or not something will happen, is whether or not you believe in the possibility.
I think a lot of people want to do a million great things while they are here on this planet. We all wish for world peace, to end hunger and poverty, or to become millionaires. Then there are personal goals and journeys. Some of us want to lose a significant amount of weight. Others want to be amazing parents. Actors want to win Oscars. Authors want to be on the New York Time’s Best Selling list. Each of us has our own desires and dreams. Only some of us believe in the possibility. Why is that? What is stopping us from manifesting our destiny?
Ask yourself what it is you want to do with your life. Ask yourself why you are not doing that. Write down all of the reasons why your dream has not already manifested. You might write things like:
- “I don’t have enough time.”
- “I’m too busy doing things for my family.”
- “I’m not smart enough.”
- “I don’t have the right education.”
- “I don’t have any experience.”
Now, I want you to draw a line through that excuse and write next to it (or below it, or on another sheet of paper), the exact opposite of that statement. Write a statement that falsifies the excuse and gives hope towards believing in the truth. The truth of course is that there is enough time. You have enough talent. You are in charge of your destiny.
“I don’t have enough time.”There is plenty of time in the day for me to do one thing towards my goals. I am in control of how I spend my time and I choose to spend it wisely. “I’m too busy doing things for my family.”I have time and energy to help my family and myself. My dreams and goals are just as important as the well-being of my family. I can successfully manage both. “I’m not smart enough.”I am smart enough to do anything I desire. I am open to studying, learning and taking classes to further my education. I am smart enough to know that there’s always room to grow and learn. “I don’t have the right education.”My passion for my dream is enough to get me started. I can always learn more about my dreams and goals as I go along. My education cannot stop me from living my dreams. “I don’t have any experience.”No one starts out with experience. Experience is gained by trying and doing. I am willing to try new things and gain new experiences.
Work on developing belief for your second statement. This may take some practice, as you’ve already convinced yourself that your first sentence was true. You may get frustrated with the conflict in your mind. Be patient with yourself. It takes awhile to turn around a large ship.
You can do it! You need to do it. Find the inspiration you need to help you believe in that second statement. Find others who are proving the second statement true. Let them inspire you.
Seek out wisdom and advice from positive sources. Recognize positive and negative influences and steer towards the positive. Release your obligation from the negative thoughts. Develop your belief in your destiny and watch it unfold and fully manifest!
