“I’ve always been a driven person, and I’m not shy about that. I’ve always wanted to be the best person possible and do things that are important to me.
But what if our definition of ‘driven’ is more than just being ambitious? What if we look at it from another angle: What if we consider ourselves driven by our intentions? Is being driven by intention different from being driven by ambition? If so, how can we make use of this distinction?
It’s about more than just having goals.
For many people, the idea of manifesting something new is just as exciting as actually doing so. However, while you can use your intention to help guide you through achieving your goals and dreams (and even making them happen), it’s also important you remember that intentions are not goals in themselves—they’re more like an ‘in-between’ step in the middle of where one is now and where they want to be.
A goal is what we need for us to begin our journey toward reaching our ultimate destiny. It serves as an anchor point on which we can hang all other things that pertain directly to reaching this destination at hand. An intention only provides direction for one aspect of achieving success: getting started with something new! In other words, if there isn’t any specific action plan set up yet, like ‘I’m going on vacation,’ then how exactly would anyone know what steps should go into place next?
This is the most important thing to remember when practicing manifestation. You can’t rely on someone else to make your dreams come true, so it’s up to you! You have to believe in yourself and what you want out of life. If something isn’t working for you or isn’t making sense, then stop doing it until it does work for YOU!
You need to trust yourself enough that if something doesn’t seem right for your purposes (or maybe even altogether), then don’t do it! This may sound harsh but think about how often people take risks without thinking things through first because they’re afraid their friends would judge them if they didn’t show off everything right away. We’re all human beings with emotions and sometimes those emotions get in the way of being reasonable thinkers; especially when things aren’t going well emotionally or socially at home or work (which happens often!).
I’m not a good actor, so I don’t pretend.
Do you know what I mean? If you’ve ever tried to be someone you’re not, it usually ends up feeling like a bunch of lies.
So instead of pretending, I just don’t worry about that stuff at all. It’s not worth the energy.
How To Practice Manifestation
I practice manifestation every day.
I set goals and intentions for myself, and then focus on them.
I share my goals with others so they can hold me accountable for my actions.
Instead of focusing on the outcome, which is impossible to control anyway (even if you could), focus on your intentions instead—the things you want to create in your life now or later this year (or next month).
I share my goals with others to make them real.
It’s important to share your goals with others. Not only does it give them more power and make them feel like they’re part of your journey, but it also helps you stay focused on them and accountable for achieving them.
I’ve found that when I’m working on a goal, I have an easier time staying motivated by knowing that someone else out there is also working towards the same thing as me! This motivation can come in many forms: it could be finding a friend who shares similar interests (like yoga), or perhaps just hanging out with friends who are all pursuing something similar in their lives (e.g., growing food).
I focus on my intentions, not the outcomes.
I’ve found that it is much more effective to focus on my intentions, not the outcome. When you focus on one thing at a time and give it your full attention, you can make things happen.
The secret here is being specific about what you want in life; otherwise, there will always be room for doubt about whether or not your efforts are working toward achieving those goals.
I set small goals in addition to big ones.
As you can see, setting small goals is important. When you have a big goal in mind and it doesn’t seem like you’ll be able to achieve it, it’s easy to lose motivation. But if your goal is smaller than what seems possible at the time, then it’s easier for you to stay motivated when things get tough.
For example: If I want my blog posts to be more popular than they are now (and I do), then I could set myself a small goal of getting 20 new followers by next month. Once this has been achieved (or even before), then I could focus on making sure all my other posts get more views too so that they reach their potential as well!
Gratitude is an important part of manifesting your desires. It helps you to stay positive and feel good, which makes it easier for you to attract what you want into your life.
It’s also very easy to practice gratitude. Just think about all the things in your life that are working out well—things like:
The sun is shining outside!
My kids have a great day at school today!
I got paid yesterday so now I can buy food for tonight’s dinner party!
Manifestation is about practice and intention, not just wishing.
It’s not like you’ll just get lucky one day and your life will turn out the way you want. You have to be intentional about what you want and then take action.
You can’t just wish for something and expect it to happen. That’s not how manifestation works! If your intention is strong enough—if there is enough desire behind it—then eventually things will start working out as they should (which usually means better). But if there isn’t enough energy behind your efforts, nothing gets done at all.
Manifestation is a practice. It’s not just about wishing, and it’s not a one-time thing. You have to keep doing it every day to stay on track with your goals. Remember that you can’t have success without failure, so keep trying until you get there!”
