8 Powerful Mindsets That Will Help Manifest Your Dreams

8 Powerful Mindsets That Will Help Manifest Your Dreams

Living in the technological era, now more than ever, we have access to all the knowledge, opportunity and resources on this amazing planet. We are ever connected and ever contactable. Our forefathers have blazed the trail for us to have access to our dreams at a touch of a button and our opportunities are truly limitless.

Though most of us have this realization deep down, we tend to stand in our own way by failing to listen to our inner guidance and by effect, we fail to shine true in our authenticity. By adopting the following mind-sets, we can begin to cultivate greater self -abundance and eventually, pave our way to the success we truly desire.

Own your life

“A dream is a wish your heart makes” – Walt Disney

Many of us have the tendency to send our own dreams and passions into the backdrop in order to please others. Whilst this is a noble deed, it often means we dis-empower ourselves and fail to flourish in our purest essence.

Whilst keeping others happy is a beautiful thing, it can only be done properly when we value ourselves.  Realizing our dreams in independence,  honoring them and making daily efforts to bring them alive are worthy investments to make.

Cultivate Optimism

“Optimism is a happiness magnet, if you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you” – Mary Lou Retton

Negative thinking is easy.  The stressful lives we live cause negativity to be the natural state of functioning for most. Optimism has now become a skill held by a healthy few and is a vital mindset to living the life of your dreams.

Optimism helps us see the world with beauty and perfection. When we see the beauty, we instinctively want to add to it. By cultivating optimism, we therefore gear our minds to a natural state of bliss and give ourselves the permission to dream big.

Be brave

“Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others” – Thomas Krause

As much as originality and independent thought can magnetize love and beauty, it tends to provoke an atmosphere of ridicule. Be brave enough to move forward believing in your dreams with greater strength than the negative remarks.

This requires courage and effort, but is full of reward. You will find that as you transform into your truth, you inspire others to do the same.

Fall In Love with Creating

“Creativity is intelligence having fun” – Einstein

In our purest essence, we are powerful creators. We are all born with gifts, talents and thoughts that spark our own creativity. The ability to explore these is a vital mind-set towards manifesting your dreams.

Most importantly, it cultivates a nurturing self-relationship and fosters feelings of inner peace and content. This puts us in a good place to embark on achievement.

Practice Gratitude

“When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears” – Anthony Robbins

Living from a place of gratitude is a fruitful route to success. Making the effort to be thankful for all the small things allows us to live from calmness, grace and strength. This empowers our creative essence and allows a healthy state of mental functioning, putting us on our way to achievement.

Live From A Place of Passion

“Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it’s realistic or not” – Deepak Chopra

Passion is truly the most powerful emotion on the planet. When you live from a place of passion, you build strong relationships, fulfilling careers and constantly strive to shine. Finding true passion takes work – it requires going deep within and asking questions that only you can answer. But once you have found it, you are undoubtedly on the way to success.

Value Your Authenticity

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

You were born into this world as an authentic individual to shine in your very own light. You were meant to be different from everyone else, so that you could share your beauty with them. By having the courage to be authentic, you live from a place of individuality and true capability. Carry this lesson with you, and you will be on your way to making your dreams a reality – you are the only person that has power over your success.

Have Enormous Dreams

“A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities” – J.R.R Tolkein

Have the courage to dream big. The world is full of inspiration – each of us are walking, talking examples of it in one way or another. Your dream may be to be the best mother or wife possible, or it may be to put a stop to hunger in third world countries.

The beauty is in the differences. Don’t ever tell yourself that your dreams are too big – allow yourself to make the effort and to try – it will get you further than you think and will help you create something that matters.

The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

Are you waiting for life events to turn out the way you want so that you can feel more positive about your life? Do you find yourself having pre-conditions to your sense of well-being, thinking that certain things must happen for you to be happier? Do you think there is no way that your life stresses can make you anything other than “stressed out” and that other people just don’t understand?  If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, you might find yourself lingering in the land of negativity for too long!

The following are some tips to keep positive no matter what comes your way. This post will help you stop looking for what psychologists call “positivity” in all the wrong places!  Here are the ten essential habits of positive people.

1. Positive people don’t confuse quitting with letting go.

Instead of hanging on to ideas, beliefs, and even people that are no longer healthy for them, they trust their judgement to let go of negative forces in their lives.  Especially in terms of relationships, they subscribe to The Relationship Prayer which goes:

 I will grant myself the ability to trust the healthy people in my life … 

To set limits with, or let go of, the negative ones … 

And to have the wisdom to know the DIFFERENCE!

 2.  Positive people don’t just have a good day – they make a good day.

Waiting, hoping and wishing seldom have a place in the vocabulary of positive individuals. Rather, they use strong words that are pro-active and not reactive. Passivity leads to a lack of involvement, while positive people get very involved in constructing their lives. They work to make changes to feel better in tough times rather than wish their feelings away.

3. For the positive person, the past stays in the past.

Good and bad memories alike stay where they belong – in the past where they happened. They don’t spend much time pining for the good ol’ days because they are too busy making new memories now. The negative pulls from the past are used not for self-flagellation or unproductive regret, but rather productive regret where they use lessons learned as stepping stones towards a better future.

4. Show me a positive person and I can show you a grateful person.

The most positive people are the most grateful people.  They do not focus on the potholes of their lives.  They focus on the pot of gold that awaits them every day, with new smells, sights, feelings and experiences.  They see life as a treasure chest full of wonder.

5. Rather than being stuck in their limitations, positive people are energized by their possibilities.

Optimistic people focus on what they can do, not what they can’t do.  They are not fooled to think that there is a perfect solution to every problem, and are confident that there are many solutions and possibilities.  They are not afraid to attempt new solutions to old problems, rather than spin their wheels expecting things to be different this time.  They refuse to be like Charlie Brown expecting that this time Lucy will not pull the football from him!

6. Positive people do not let their fears interfere with their lives!

Positive people have observed that those who are defined and pulled back by their fears never really truly live a full life. While proceeding with appropriate caution, they do not let fear keep them from trying new things. They realize that even failures are necessary steps for a successful life. They have confidence that they can get back up when they are knocked down by life events or their own mistakes, due to a strong belief in their personal resilience.

7. Positive people smile a lot!

When you feel positive on the inside it is like you are smiling from within, and these smiles are contagious. Furthermore, the more others are with positive people, the more they tend to smile too! They see the lightness in life, and have a sense of humor even when it is about themselves. Positive people have a high degree of self-respect, but refuse to take themselves too seriously!

8. People who are positive are great communicators.

They realize that assertive, confident communication is the only way to connect with others in everyday life.  They avoid judgmental, angry interchanges, and do not let someone else’s blow up give them a reason to react in kind. Rather, they express themselves with tact and finesse.  They also refuse to be non-assertive and let people push them around. They refuse to own problems that belong to someone else.

9. Positive people realize that if you live long enough, there are times for great pain and sadness.

One of the most common misperceptions about positive people is that to be positive, you must always be happy. This can not be further from the truth. Anyone who has any depth at all is certainly not happy all the time.  Being sad, angry, disappointed are all essential emotions in life. How else would you ever develop empathy for others if you lived a life of denial and shallow emotions? Positive people do not run from the gamut of emotions, and accept that part of the healing process is to allow themselves to experience all types of feelings, not only the happy ones. A positive person always holds the hope that there is light at the end of the darkness.  

10. Positive person are empowered people – they refuse to blame others and are not victims in life.

Positive people seek the help and support of others who are supportive and safe.They limit interactions with those who are toxic in any manner, even if it comes to legal action and physical estrangement such as in the case of abuse. They have identified their own basic human rights, and they respect themselves too much to play the part of a victim. There is no place for holding grudges with a positive mindset. Forgiveness helps positive people become better, not bitter.

How about you?  How many habits of positive people do you personally find in yourself?  If you lack even a few of these 10 essential habits, you might find that the expected treasure at the end of the rainbow was not all that it was cracked up to be. How could it — if you keep on bringing a negative attitude around?

I wish you well in keeping positive, because as we all know, there is certainly nothing positive about being negative!
