We all have things we want to achieve, places we want to go, and things we’d like to have. The question is, are we as effective as we can be in our manifestation process? How effective are you at bringing what you want into your life? I want to discuss a few ways to sharpen your manifestation ax.

Understand that manifestation is a series of disciplined decisions followed by actions. There are some straightforward concepts that if followed, will move you toward fulfilling your desires.

1. Stop wanting and start believing. Wanting things doesn’t help you get them. Instead of focusing on the want, concentrate on your belief that it will happen. Next picture yourself living your desired outcome. Tap into the emotion of what it would feel like to have what you want. This will dramatically increase the probability that it becomes reality.

2. Make a decision and move forward. “The price of inaction is far greater than the cost of making a mistake” Master Elkhart (13th century philosopher). You may not always have all the answers, but at some point you need to build a plan and start taking action. You’ll make plenty of mistakes as you go. Learn from your mistakes and use your newfound knowledge to refine your actions.

3. Realize that happiness is found in the process, not just in the results. So often we reach our goals without ever appreciating what it took to get there. If you appreciate things along the way, not only is the ride far more enjoyable, you will have more appreciation for the outcome when you reach it.

4. Understand that things will often deviate from your plan. You cannot control the process. You can only direct it. Be open to the possibility that what you see as setbacks may actually set in motion a new set of outcomes. Those outcomes could cause things to turn out even better than you expect. You’re not in a position to be able to see the whole picture. Life doesn’t work that way.

If you want to improve your manifestation process get clear about what you want. Believe that it is possible. Build a plan to get there. Take your best shots each day and continue to move forward one step at a time.
