In fact, what is in your mind is more of a reality than the physical things you see right in front of you! That’s why so many people are always preaching “mindset”. Because, often it takes time for the things you’ve been thinking about to come to fruition. It takes repeated conditioning and evidence to enable us to believe certain “impossible” things are possible. It also takes repeated acts of faith and results to believe that our mind can create what we actually want.

But, we are natural manifesters.
Let’s take a simple example of how we are naturally able to manifest what we want. You want Thai food. You are in a small town in Nowheresville, U.S.A. You can immediately say, “There’s no Thai food around here.” And that would be it. But, if you reeeeeallllly wanted Thai food, you would find a way to get it. You would get resourceful. You’d search Yelp! for Thai food places, you’d keep an eye out for people who are good cooks - perhaps THEY know how to cook Thai food. Maybe you could order Thai food online and have it delivered to you in your area. Or maybe you can search online for the Thai food recipe you want, and then start looking for the ingredients at local stores or online. Perhaps you’d even drive an hour away to a town that DOES have Thai food. Because, dammit, you NEED that Thai food! You have a craving. It's a very small, simple dream. Mmmmmmm..... Thai food.
It’s the same for goals that you want to accomplish. When you reeeallllly want something, you start to get creative and resourceful. Maybe you don’t have the money for it. How can I get it for free? How can I get a donation? Or a loan? How can I volunteer for it? How can I get close to someone who has access to it? How can I win a contest for it? How can I get in circles of people who might know something about getting it? How can I create it? What is out there that is LIKE it that I can adapt? Is someone giving it away used (this is ALWAYS a great one!) Is there a scholarship or free money out there for it? How can I qualify for it? Who will gift it to me?
You see, when you really, really want something in your life, you will get very resourceful to even get close to it. You won’t give up on it. Even if someone you really, really love tells you to give up - your heart will keep searching for a way to have it. The answer may not be obvious, but your mind will keep working its way towards it. Even if it takes a long time.
The flip side is that you might really think you want it, but you don’t want to wait for it.
You don’t want to work hard for it. You don’t want to put energy into it. Well, my friend, those are signs it’s probably not for you… at least, not right now. And that is OK! I believe procrastination is a super insightful tool our psyche uses to trigger us at the proper time and the proper place. If you are procrastinating on something you think you really want right now, just honor that feeling. Take a look and see if fear of having the thing is behind your procrastination. It’s ok because in order to obtain certain results and KEEP them, we often need to become the person we need to be to handle our hopes, dreams and desires.
That’s why so many people don’t dream, are afraid to dream, or don’t take action on making dreams come true. That’s why so many people won’t create a vision board, take a good honest look at their finances, go to the doctor’s and get a check up, look in the mirror and examine it, pray or meditate and get quiet with themselves...
The one simple reason why you may not be "dreaming BIG" is because it’s really, freaking SCARY!
It requires us to become someone we’ve never been before - sometimes at great cost to our ego, our comfort, our known reputation, our historical ideals, our past pledges and promises. It’s ok to feel EVERY feeling that we have.
The BIG question is, "Are you ok dying with where you are right now in life?" Or, is there something more that you wanted? There is no right answer. The right answer is in your heart. No one can tell you the right answer. Do you want to shut down and start all over again? You can do that. Do you want to blaze out in a bright orb of glory? You can do that too. Do you want certain people, conditions, or situations in your life? Then begin to take steps towards them. Plant the vision in your heart, don’t worry about the outcome, and just walk forward.
So many people have encouraged me in the low times in my life…
If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl. If you can’t crawl, just keep breathing. As long as there is breath in your lungs and desire in your heart, it is possible. And one even more encouraging source of wisdom is that it’s not even your desired result that is important. It’s who you become going after it on the journey.
You don’t have to want big visible things in life - luxurious cars, mansions, fame and fanfare. You don’t have to want big invisible things in life - peace, tranquility, space to do your thing in a safe environment. You can want whatever you want. Who you are becoming and who you are helping is the best possible purpose you will ever have in life. Just to become more YOU.
