Forget the How and Focus on the WHAT
I've been a coach for more than a decade, and have been a first hand witness and support to hundreds of people who not only have big goals and dreams, but actually manifest them! It continues to be one of the biggest thrills in my life -- witnessing someone achieve his or her goal!
But there’s also something I’ve identified over the years that stumps most people, time and time again when they begin the process of defining what they want to achieve and the ideal life they want to have... they almost always get distracted by one thing: how. And that’s where things get messy.
Focusing on left brain logistics (how, when, and where) interrupts the right brain creative process, which is absolutely critical to manifesting something new.
Crafting Your Vivid Vision
When I recently read the Vivid Vision by Cameron Herold, immediately recognized that this dude had ripped me off! I’ve been using vivid visualization in my life as far back as I can remember. It’s also one of the cornerstones of what I teach in my programs and to my clients. So basically, this Cameron beat me to a book!
The truth is, neither of us invented visualization. Visualization is a universal law.
You can’t manifest something unless you can imagine it. And I don’t mean, just “dream” about it...I mean imagine it with real clarity and conviction. This is one of the principle steps in my Get SET Method.
What Cameron and I both share in our teachings is that getting intimate with your vision is an absolute must for achieving any big goal. First you become the visionary by creating the WHAT, then... the universe presents the how.
Why Not Focus on the How?
Know what happens when you start to worry about how you will achieve your goals? You get distracted and caught up in “reality”. Your doubts and fears kick in...
You start to worry that your dream is too big, you don’t have enough time, you’re too old, too inexperienced, you don’t know how you’ll come up with the money, etc. You start to believe that because it doesn’t exist yet, it can’t exist ever. And that’s why you stay stuck!
One of my greatest mentors, Esther Hicks talks about how reality is only reality because you’re focused on it. Did you know that you can create another reality simply by focusing on something different?
Woah! Let that sink in!
You can create another reality by focusing on something different.
Focus on Your Vision FIRST
This is where the conundrum lies. You are focused on how to accomplish your goals, but guess what? Your HOW may not even exist yet! You have to focus on the vision first in order for it to become a reality!
Throughout history, there are numerous success stories where the how isn’t even real until long after the vision has been set. For example, when Microsoft wanted to put computers on every desk in the world, they were not even producing computers yet.
Another example: When Kennedy decided to put a man on the moon, the technology for traveling to space had not been conceived of yet!
Here’s a little secret…
This past summer (2018) I got a vivid vision of having an academy of sorts...a place, whether virtual or actual, where I teach others how to teach the very things I’m sharing with you now. When I came up with that vision, I didn't know what it would look like or how it would develop... but I had no doubt it would, because I know how to focus on the vision, not the how.
In October, while working on something else with my business coach, we came up with the idea of turning my Method and my teachings into a Certification for other coaches, so they can help spread this Mindset LOA work. I realized in that moment...that THIS is how my vision is beginning to manifest...
I still don't know all the details. And I don't need to. I follow the signs, and I take the opportunities as they present themselves.
That is how Manifesting works.
Trust the Universe
Don’t let the fact that you don’t know how you will achieve your vision b stop you from actually pursuing it. I’ve personally experienced the shift-- from vision without the how, to suddenly knowing how. The steps to take become clear.
Once you get the vision clear and make a solid decision to take action-- without knowing how everything's gonna work out, without having all the answers and all the pieces in place-- it all lines up for you!
Mentally, and physically, take action!
Taking action is what tells the universe that you're serious. Taking action tells the universe and God that you trust yourself... you trust what's to come.
I challenge you to get your big vision on paper. Write out every detail of what it will look like and feel like. Don’t worry about how it will happen. Leave that up to the universe to show you when you’re ready.
Life is now!
