Think it and bring it forth.
There is only one way to your dreams and that is by believing you can make it. Believe is the core to everything. What you believe in is what you actually receive. Your believe is what would determine whether you would be positive about the dream or be negative about it. Those who believe they can do it keep going even when the world thinks they are stupid and doubt the possibility of them achieving what they are after. It can be frustrating to use the positive words and visualize yet have no visible results in the project you desire. The common error is that most people stop after the visualization, hoping for the manifestation of their desires. It is true that what you think about you bring forth but there are certain things that accompany positive thoughts on a dream. It must be backed by an action.
How to bring forth your dreams to a physical manifestation
Write them down. In an earlier post I had mentioned writing down every dream you want to achieve. Let me expatiate a little on it before I move on to the purpose of this post. Writing down a dream is the initial point in the process of bringing forth a dream. There is a process with everything in life. You did not just become an adult over night. You left from stage to stage, body to body. That is to say you left from baby, to toddler and adolescent and then to adult. In the same way you need to bring your dreams into a process. It cannot jump from your head to the market. There is always a process even in the cycle of production. Thus consider your dreams as a product or service already in existence and write your ideas as they flow. As you write, endeavor to put them down in a constructive and orderly manner. Imagine you were being asked a question about your dreams and you had to explain it to someone and write your dreams down clearly as your explanations would be. This becomes the first physical reality of your dream. It no longer lives in your head, it is an actual project.
Visualize: Visualizing a dream becomes easier after you have written them down. While you write, you already create a picture of the product or service in your mind and sometimes you feel so good about it and it just makes you feel great about yourself. This awesome feeling/emotion is important in the process of visualization. As you visualize your dreams you need to summon those good feelings about that product. If you wrote them down in an orderly manner, you would be able to get into those very good feelings each time you try to imagine the success of the dream. But if you still find it difficult to do so, think of any other thing or event in your life that made you happy and replay the event in your mind. This will summon the emotions you felt at that time and when you are finally in that happy state, connect to your dream and imagine the success of it. Visualization is all about imagination. It is an act of faith. If you think you can only see and believe or believe what you see, you are living a life of limitations. Tap into the power of visualization.
- Act as if: This is the core of it. Faith without action is dead. When the dream has been written down, and visualization is done, you get on with it as if it has already happened. Act as if the dream has already manifested and you are living the life your dreams. Start in the littlest way possible. Don’t think that it is crazy to desire a house and start acting like you already have one when you are probably on the streets or living in someone’s basement. Now let me tell you this… In that same place where you are, in that same condition, you can start doing the things you would love to do when your dreams manifest. This turns your min around to seeing the possibility of your dreams. For example, keep your environment clean and tidy. Be kempt and look good like the successful person you want to be. Successful people take care of themselves and where they live. They appreciate their lives and live a life of gratitude. Most people desire a comfortable life where they can live in a beautiful and neat environment, eat drink and wear whatever they want, go to a beautiful office etc. If such is your desire, start by rearranging your home in a way that pleases you. Wake up each day like someone preparing to go to that dream office and look your best. Find a library close by and go there each day as though it were your office. Go there when you want and live when you want but endeavor to do the things you set out to do each day. Most people want to be their own bosses so that they can have control over their time and still make good money at the end of the month. Thus act as it. When you get to library, get a seat at a position you like and enjoy your space and time while there. Feel as if you were already in that dream office space. Get busy with the books there and research more about your product or service or better still, write a business plan for your product or service. When you do these things, you place a demand that cannot be denied. That is because you put your faith to action. Visualization is faith but acting as if you are already there is putting faith to action.
Dreams only get accomplished with willingness to make big moves. If you can write, and visualize it, you can act it. When you are acting it, you are already getting it. Do this and see how God will unfold each step for you as you expand. The whole concept of positive thinking is to build positive expectation in the mind and place an order on your subconscious because that is your God given servant. When it gets a clear and concise demand it acts on it. Whatever your subconscious seeks, it gets and you receive it. So make sure it seeks the right things. Until you can act it, that demand is not clear enough.
