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.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
