[Goal Setting Series]Article #4 ~ How To Turn Your Fantasy Into Reality


If you’ve been putting the information in this goal-setting series into practice, you now have a gift from the Universe: a prosperous idea that you received while fantasizing.

This idea represents something you want for your business or relationship, or it’s something you’d like to do. It would make an enormous difference in your life.

Now, the question is, how do you turn your fantasy into reality?

The first step is to answer the following two questions honestly.

1.  “Am I able?”

Do you believe that you are able to manifest your desire?

I asked you to receive ideas through fantasizing because I wanted you to open your mind to possibility, to receive ideas you might never have considered.

In order to manifest your idea, however, you have to muster the faith to believe in it.

For instance, let’s say you have a $1 million business and you want to expand to $3 million this year.

That’s a stretch, and the idea scares you, but you also feel deeply excited. You really feel in your gut that you can do it.

If, on the other hand, you don’t feel able, don’t beat yourself up. I say all the time that you have to start where you are. Fantasize again and ask for something that you can believe in.

Just keep your original vision too. You might be ready for it sooner than you think!

2. “Am I willing?”

When you can say that you are able to manifest your idea, you then want to ask yourself if you are willing to do what must be done to make it a reality.

For example, are you willing to:

Change what must be changed?

Financially invest in yourself?

Get coaching and direction when required?

Let go of self-limiting stories?

Study, read and attend seminars?

Mastermind with like-minded people?

Release your past?

Continue when met with failure?

Refuse to be a victim?

Possibly face ridicule, humiliation and rejection?

Commit to living a new life?

Move if necessary?

The list can go on and on, and you won’t know all of the things that need to change before you make the decision to pursue your fantasy.

In fact, you have to make the decision first.

This is difficult, I know, but the Universe won’t show you what you need to do until you make the decision to step into your vision.

Once you say that you are willing, the Universe will show you exactly what needs to shift. It will show up in your life as a problem or an issue, as something that obviously needs to change.

The only thing you need to do now is commit to being willing to do whatever “it” is.

Yes, that’s a huge leap of faith.

However, whatever you’ll be asked to change is the thing that’s been holding you back. So there’s really nothing to lose and everything to gain.

If you can jump off that diving board and say, “I AM ABLE, AND I AM WILLING,” you’ve made a decision.

And your fantasy is one step closer to reality.

I’ll show you that all-important second step next time.
