Magic Keys to Manifestation

ask.-believe.-receive

By now most of you have seen the movie The Secret.  I think this movie was a great introduction to the Law of Attraction but only the beginning.  First of all it is only one of the Natural Laws that impacts the universe and second, it isn’t as easy as it is portrayed in the movie when you first start working with it.

Becoming efficient at the Law of Attraction, which by the way is working at all times whether we know it or not, takes practice.  The beginning work includes a lot of self discovery and change in order to make it possible to align with those things you want to manifest.

Here are some keys to consider as you go:

Key 1: Eliminate poverty consciousness.  That is the point of view where some people have everything and you have nothing.  The belief that you don’t deserve to have money.  I remember saying “I want to be a millionaire, does anyone else want to join me?” to a room for of women.  It got so quiet you could hear a pin drop.  I could only imagine what was going through their minds.  I am sure there was some sort of poverty or deserving program running.

Key 2: Comparison.  Comparison is the quickest way to kill the flow of energy flowing toward what you want to create.  Recognize jealousy and envy toward people who have more.  When you feel yourself comparing yourself to someone else remember your journey is your journey and it won’t look like anyone else’s.

Key 3: Dream Big.  Don’t shrink your dreams to fit your budget. Using finite thinking will just keep you constricted in your thinking and action.  Instead expand how much you want to make so that you can start having more of what your want.  The more you can expand your dreaming the more you allow more to come in.

Key 4: Birds of a Feather flock together.  It is said that if you look at your 10 closest friends you will have an indication of your success or lack of success.  Start looking for people who inspire you and spend time with them.  This will increase your ability to think positive and attract more of what you want.

Key 5: Make a mental note or keep a journal of things that are happening to support movement toward manifesting your desires.  Even the smallest steps count and make it more possible for you to believe you can have what you want.

Key 6:Make a commitment to personal development.  I think network marketing and having your own business is the greatest vehicle for personal develop on the planet.  If things are not going in the direction you want them to go you are the only one to blame.  Yes you can try to blame other people or things but ultimately it comes down to you.

Key 7: Have an attitude of gratitude.   Being grateful for what you have is magnetic.  Make a gratitude journal and write at least one thing that happened each day that brought you closer to your dreams.

Finally, don’t be hard on yourself when things seem to be going in the wrong direction.  You can start fresh anytime.  If you find yourself where you don’t want to be, pick one of these keys and focus on it for a few days and watch the magic!

Don’t Let Other People Kill Your Dreams

Oh No You Don’t!  Don’t let the dream killer anywhere near your vicinity!  If you see the dream killer, run the other way as fast as you can!

One of the hardest parts about being an entrepreneur is dealing with people who try to undermine what you are doing.  Many of these people come in the form of friends and family.  I don’t think it happens with malicious intent but rather a feeling that they are trying to protect you.  I think there is a hidden agenda below that intention that is more unconscious but they are not aware that is what is driving them.

When we are children we have no problem dreaming.  We are going to be world-famous artists, musicians, dancer or maybe even astronauts and no one can stop us.  Children dream in detail and they can see them selves living their dreams.   Somewhere alone the way we stop dreaming.  It is a flaw of our society not  to encourage and support dreaming. The dream train derails, we put those desires on the shelf for “someday” and forget about them.

The problem is we never get back to them and they need energy and attention to come alive.  The law of attraction states that which you focus on will grow, so instead of focusing on our juicy, fertile dreams we focus on that J.O.B that is someday going to allow us to get back to our dreams.  Guess what, the J.O.B doesn’t go away because we are putting all of our energy into it and it never gets us to the place where we can live the life of our dreams because we are trading time for money and the money we receive is limited by what we get paid per hour.

Entrepreneurship is the best way to live your dreams and build a future that is financially secure, especially if you are involved in a residual income business.  Residual income can come from publishing a book, investing in a franchise, investing in real estate or joining a network marketing business.

I get residual income from a game I produced years ago and I am also in a network marketing business.  Network marketing naturally encourages dreaming because it is a way to get that new car, new home, get out of debit and work your own hours.  I have seen so many people join the business with lots of passion cause their dreams get reactivated and within days the passion is gone.  They went home and told their spouse or best friend and what they heard was something like this:  ” You are kidding, those things don’t work!”, “Oh, no, you joined one of those pyramid schemes”, “No one makes money in those things”, and “I have seen people lose money in those things.”

People don’t want to look foolish in front of friends or family so quit. They put their dream back on the shelf and look for a “real job”.    Once the dream is smashed it is hard to get back.  I had a distributor join my business and within the first 18 days she brought on 30 people.  Half of them were distributors and half were customers.   She was magnetic and there was no stopping her, until one of her distributors had a conversation with someone in another company, who they both knew.  This person said ” I tried that wrap and it doesn’t work.  I can’t believe you joined that company!” The distributor that was told this felt stupid and began to doubt her self and she share the conversation with   my new distributor who was on fire and her business tanked immediately. Even though she loved the product, knew it worked, it was a perfect fit for her other ventures and she was making money.   She was never able to turn it around from the comment.  She got infected by the dream killer and that was the end of her dreams.

When I first joined the business my closest friend told me early on that she didn’t want to hear anything about my business, nothing!  She wanted to leave a big part of my life out of the conversation.  In reality, when you start your own business, you want the support of your closest friends.  Not only that but how can you have a conversation with your closest friend and not talk about the thing that is taking up a great deal of your life.  The conversation would be something like ” how are you doing?”  “Fine”,  “What have you been doing lately?”, “Not much”,  “Okay, talked to you later”.  The reality is, when I wanted to get support for something that was going on in my business,  it wasn’t allowed in the conversation.

It is predictable that relationship came to an end.  The conversation that ended it happened when I was having issues with a distributor and I wanted support from that friend.  I could feel that she wasn’t listening, as I talked about the issue, and she wanted to get off the phone.  When I told her I felt she wasn’t present in the conversation she got angry and ended the relationship saying I was projecting my stuff onto her.  I think it might have been the other way around.

I tell this story because we need to surround ourselves with people who support us and cheer us on, not people who try to kill our dreams.  People who will gently hold our dreams and encourage us to reach them and as we do the same for them.  We also have to believe so much in our own dreams that we won’t let anyone get in the way!  We plug our ears and say “la la la la la”, when someone tries to interfere.

“When dreaming, choose your own dreams.  Don’t let someone else force a dream on you that you don’t really want.”  Kim Kiyosaki

Here are some ways to protect your dreams and avoid the Dream Killers.

  1. Surround yourself with dreamers.  People who are living their dreams and supporting you to find and follow your own.
  2. Use discernment about who you can and cannot share your dreams with.  Don’t talk about your business with people who might try to discourage you.
  3. Be your own cheerleader!  Listen to your intuition and own inner promptings first and foremost.
  4. Work on yourself. Change the thoughts and behaviors that get in your way.
  5. Don’t give up for any reason!
  6. Make a dream board with visual representations of your dreams so that you can be reminded all the time what they are.
  7. When someone tries to discourage you question their motives first and avoid feeling silly or foolish for what you believe to be true for yourself.

I love Kim Kiyosaki’s advice and I would add to it, don’t sign up to build someone else’s dream, working 9 to 5 for less than you deserve. Very few people create financial freedom working for someone else.  Find a Network Marketing company with something that you can be passionate about and start creating your own economy.

So let’s go into that closet, pull out that box of dreams and start dreaming again.
