Ah yes, the mythical manifestation from just thinking about what you want to attract. Now that’s a magic bullet that would sell, but of course, it already does.
Unfortunately it takes more than just thought to bring something you really desire into your reality. That thought has to be in alignment with who you are and what your life purpose is, and what you’re going to do about it. Otherwise you create more of what you already are creating that you don’t want.
To have that base to operate your business and your life from, requires that you acquire a depth of knowledge to be proficient at knowing what you want to attract and what you don’t want to attract.
Very often when we are trying to attract something, the thoughts you are thinking are actually bringing you the opposite without you even realizing it. This is very often the case with money. So much of what we’ve been taught about money has been around asking for more money.
But when you are constantly saying,“I want more money in my life”, what your thought is saying to the Universe is, “Oh yeah, I don’t have enough money”. So you are really sending out the thought that you don’t have enough money, so that’s what you keep manifesting, because that’s your dominant thought.
This is not brain surgery. It goes back to my first exposure to Earl Nightingale and “The Strangest Secret”, which is that you get what you think about all day long. That was a fact I was newly aware of when I heard Earl talk about it in 1980.
It works the same with everything in your business and your life. That’s where having a blueprint for your life comes in handy.
With your life blueprint you get clear on these questions:
1. Who you are?
2. What do stand for in your life?
3. What are your boundaries, meaning what won’t you stand for?
4. What is your purpose for being here, what is your gift?
5. How are you going to contribute to the world with your gift?
6. What kind of life do you want to live and how are you going to create it?
7. How does the business you choose to create facilitate that life? (90% of this answer has nothing to do with income)
Being able to sit down and matter of factly answer all these question from the core of your being is what a life blueprint does for you. It’s the structure that creates the foundation for your life. You then have the knowledge to focus your thoughts in a way that manifests what you truly want in your life. You are also in action, living your life blueprint from the day you create it.
You wouldn’t think of taking a road trip from LA to New York without a map of what was the fastest or most scenic (depending on your preference) way to get there would you?
You wouldn’t buy a piece of land on Tuesday and on Wednesday have a load of lumber delivered and just start framing what you thought would end up being a house would you? Of course not! The first thing you’d do is hire an architect, or buy a set of blueprints someone else has already created for a house you already have decided you like and then you’d customize them to your taste.
I am your success architect. I can help you draw up your own personalized blueprint, or I can guide you through a blueprint process where you can then customize it on your own.
But, if you can’t sit down and answer all 7 of those questions in a way that is in alignment with your soul, what are you waiting for? The life that you are spending your time and money and a great deal of effort creating, is not in alignment with who you really are.
What that means is that you will always be struggling until it is. You can achieve alignment in a short amount of time. It is possible for everyone. You just have to be ready and raise your hand and ask for help.
Until next week, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post on my blog.
