How to Manifest Your Goals

Lately I have been very open about my future goals, and the more people I tell, the closer I seem to get to achieving them. A good friend of mine is a social-media "mogul" and has helped me a lot in understanding the blogging world. She was recently in California and had an "aha" moment about her future goals and shared it with me. I couldn't help but cheer her on. I am a firm believer in doing what makes you happy, and reaching for the stars. No dream is too big!

The more she and I talked about manifesting goals and getting where you want to be, the more I thought I HAD to share my secrets to achieving personal happiness with my followers.

1. Think Positively
"If you think it you can be it"I believe is the quote from the movie/novel that Oprah RAVES about, The Secret. I am sure many of you have seen it while scrolling through Netflix. I am also sure many of you rolled your eyes when you heard the quote I opened this paragraph with. Regardless of whether you believe in the Law of Attraction, there is no denying that if you think positive things, you will start to see positive changes. You are your own destiny, so think long and hard about where you want to see your life go, and the more you manifest this, the closer you'll get to your goals.

2. Believe in Yourself
If you don't believe in yourself, no one will. If you lack confidence, people will sense it. Confident people can achieve anything, so believe in yourself and others will too!

"There are people less qualified than you, doing the things you want to do, simply because they decided to believe in themselves. Period" - anonymous

3. Surround Yourself with Positive People
Positive people, and people who convey the same convictions as you are likely to encourage you to reach for your goals and never give up. You are always going to have bad days, but the bad days make the good days even better. Like-minded people, and other people with ambitious goals are going to motivate you, and you them!
Similarly, if someone doesn't believe in you, prove them wrong. It's now your ammunition to go above and beyond your goals and achieve ultimate "status".

4. Be Yourself
This is the most important step in achieving your goals. People can smelly phoniness. If you be yourself, regardless of what other people think, you can achieve anything. It may take longer than you'd like, but eventually everyone who believes in them self is successful.

Here are some ways to start manifesting your goals and making the changes in your life you need to make in order to start seeing progress.

*Start Journaling*
This is my favourite way to set goals. Or, make daily goals. Write them down and follow-up at the end of the day. If you're achieving your daily goals you can start to make bigger goals. Now, set 1, 5 and 10-year goals. Your long-term goals can change, and often do change as you grow and change. These goals don't have to be met, so don't be upset if in 5 years you haven't achieved a goal you set. Your long-term goals are there to give you something to reach for, but maybe as you get closer and closer to that goal you want to see something BIGGER! Keep writing down your goals and taking one step a day towards achieving them. For some, writing their goals down IS their big step for the day.

FACT: The prettier the journal you get, the more exciting it will be to use it every day. I use Crayola markers to make every page of my journal fun and inviting. This way every day I want to get back to it!

*Meditate Often*
Meditation is a great way to calm your mind, take a mental break from reality, and focus on YOU. The more you focus on yourself and start to think about your own wants and needs, the easier it will be to start working towards your goals.

TIP: If you don't know how to meditate on your own, use the Calm.com app for daily meditations.
