5 Ways to Manifest Anything

5 Ways to Manifest Anything

It may seem like it’s hard to make something big happen for you, but it really isn’t. All you have to do is get it in gear and you can manifest anything. The best thing you can do is avoid the urge to hesitate and just throw yourself into your journey. Here are some ways to make it easier to manifest things you thought were impossible.

1. Ask Yourself What You Really Want

What’s your goal? Is it to spend more time with your family? Is it to make more money? Is it to have more power or influence? Think about what in your life is bringing you fulfillment. What’s giving you a reason for being? Don’t concern yourself with what’s the easiest. The best kind of happiness isn’t effortless; it requires real work. Just figure out what makes you the proudest of yourself at the end of the day. When you find what that goal is, pinpoint it and then make it your mission to reach it.

2. Visualize

Picture yourself where you want to be. Looks good, doesn’t it? Keep that picture in mind as you make steps towards your ultimate goal. Keep in mind that as you’re moving forward that visualization might alter somewhat. Sometimes your goals shift, and sometimes they even change completely. Don’t be afraid to go with the flow if you identify a better path for yourself, but you should always have some kind of image in your head of where you ultimately want to end up. It can even literally be a picture. You might be more motivated if you have a photo or drawing of yourself achieving your end goal. You can look at that everyday in your cubicle or office or study and think about how sweet the actual moment will be.

3. Take Action

Stop being idle and do something already. Admit it to yourself that you’re not waiting for the right moment, you’re just plain stalling. The longer you think about taking on a big task without committing to it, the scarier it becomes to get the project off the ground. Even if you don’t know what the best first step is, you need to hurry up and get on that ladder! It might be a shaky climb at first but you’ll eventually get to the top if you persevere and just keep moving.

4. Be Grateful

Recognize what you have and feel blessed that you have it. Express your gratitude by not taking the gifts you have been given for granted. If you’re reading this you probably have opportunities available to you that billions of people don’t so please make the most out of them. Mementos like your wedding ring or your smartphone or even your pair of shoes should be a constant reminder that you should be doing more to make the best out of your life. Not everyone has a chance to manifest anything like you do. Remember that, and pursue your dreams in full force.

5. Stop The Limiting Beliefs

Don’t let your doubt fester, treat it like germs and wash your hands of it. Remind yourself constantly that your limitations are minimal compared to all that you can accomplish. You can do and achieve so much if you have the dedication to actually do it. Don’t overthink things; just go full steam ahead. The worst thing you can do is fail, and even the worst failures (especially the worst failures) can be the most invaluable lessons. You learn from the failures, you grow, you try again, and again, and eventually you succeed. The only losers are quitters, and sadly there are a lot of quitters. Don’t be one of them.

The Daily Rituals of 7 Successful CEOs

The Daily Rituals of 7 Successful CEOs

One of my favorite success quotes ever comes from one of the original and most successful ‘CEOs’ of his era: Aristotle. Here’s what he said:

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

This advice is just as sound today as it was when Aristotle first expressed it, way back when. I’m reminded of this at least once a week, when I interview an inspiring author, leader, or successful CEO on my show. I ask my guests a series of questions about what has contributed to their success and their ability to build something meaningful.

You want to know what nearly all of them say? Almost every time, they respond by telling me that their success is the result of simple habits  enacted day after day.

These quotes from seven successful CEOs demonstrate the daily rituals that have contributed to their success:

1. Promote what you love.

“It’s so much better to promote what you love than to bash what you hate.” – Jessica Alba, CEO of The Honest Company

2. Develop a feedback loop.

“I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.” – Elon Musk, CEO of TESLA Motors

3. Create things that are better, not just “different.”

“Our task today is to find singular ways to create the new things that will make the future not just different, but better—to go from 0 to 1. The essential first step is to think for yourself. Only by seeing our world anew, as fresh and strange as it was to the ancients who saw it first, can we both re-create it and preserve it for the future.” – Peter Thiel, CEO of Palantir and best-selling author of Zero To One.

4. Meditate.

“Meditate. Breathe consciously. Listen. Pay attention. Treasure every moment. Make the connection.” – Oprah Winfrey, CEO of OWN Network

5. Read every day.

“Read 500 pages every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up like compound interest.”-Warren Buffet, CEO of investment firm Berkshire-Hathaway

6. Block time for email.

“Set aside a 20- to 30-minute chunk of time two or three times a day for email. Do not check continually through the day.” – Doug Camplejohn, CEO of predictive lead marketing company FlipTop.

7. Make your customers happy.

“We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It’s our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better.” – Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com

Develop the right rituals. Become a successful CEO.

If the majority of these daily habits are new to you, avoid making the crucial mistake of adopting all of these habits at once. Research on habit-formation indicates that lasting habits are formed one at a time.

For example, let’s say you’re excited about developing the following daily habits:

  • daily reading,
  • daily meditation, and
  • updating your to-do list every night

Let’s say that daily reading is the one that excites you the most out of the three habits noted above. It would be wise of you to begin by choosing and scheduling time to read every day, and then sticking to that time until it becomes a habit. Once it feels effortless and automatic, you’ll know that you’ve turned it into a daily habit. Now you’re ready to install the next habit… and the next… Until before you know it, you’ll start looking in the mirror and seeing the reflection of a successful CEO.
