Have you ever sat in class and the teacher asks a difficult question? She pauses, and then looks around the room. ‘Don’t pick me, don’t pick me’ you say to yourself. Almost every time, she picks you.
Some would say otherwise. To gain a better understanding, let’s look at manifestation in the short-term.
Have you ever had ‘one of those days’? You wake up and get dressed for work. Maybe you can’t find the keys or your kids are arguing over breakfast, or you’ve had a fight with your partner the night before.
Even the smallest thing, that could put you in a bad mood for the rest of the day.
You let out a deep sigh in the car on your way to work. There’s been an accident on the road, so now you’re going to be late. When you get to work, your boss has lumped a pile of folders on your desk. And then maybe your coffee isn’t as good as usual, or the sandwich is too dry. You get the idea…
All of these problems just seem to become attracted to you. From the time you wake up to the time you go to bed.
Why? Because most of the time we attract it. You probably said to yourself in the morning ‘It’s just going to be one of those days’ and it is.
However, you’ve also probably said to yourself, ‘Today is going to be great’ and it is.
So, what can we learn from this? We attract what we think and what we believe. The power is in the ‘stories’ we tell ourselves everyday.
Perspective and manifestation.
However, a certain element is also about perspective.
Where one person sees a problem, another sees a solution. Where one sees a solution, the other sees the problem. Is the glass half full or half empty?
Once you make a shift in your perspective (consciously), the world seems to magically shift and mould into the form you wish it to be.
Perspective really is everything!
However, this is not a new idea. Budda once quoted:
“What you think you become. What you feel you attract. What you imagine you create.”
Albert Einstein also once said:
“Imagination is everything, it is the preview of life’s coming attractions”.
So, is it really possible?
The short answer is yes.
Is it easy? No.
Manifestation alone will not create your ideal future; however, it is a big part in success. To achieve your goals it takes belief, determination and focus. But most of all it takes action. You can manifest anything; it just depends on how strong that desire is and how much you believe in your desires.
In essence, if you truly believe you can manifest your future, you can.
After all, ‘Those who say they can and those who say they can’t are both usually right’.
