In my last blog post I shared ways to beef up our motivational skills. This week’s blog talks about using manifestation to achieve motivation and get things done. Get ready for science-based tips and strategies to make manifestation happen in your life.


Here’s what we’ll cover today:

What is manifestation?

Manifestation isn’t just the Law of Attraction

Science-based manifestation

Skills that will develop manifestation

Four do-able manifestation techniques

 

What is manifestation?

When we talk about manifesting, we're diving into the realm of thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that help us shape the reality we desire. The exciting news is that science has uncovered many effective ways to bring our dreams to life. But here's the catch: simply wishing for something isn't always enough to make it happen. So how do we know which manifestation techniques are backed by science and which aren't?

 

Manifestation isn’t just the Law of Attraction

Let's start with the not-so-great news. Many of the popular manifestation strategies you might have heard about are what we call “pseudo-scientific”. They sound alluring and promising, but they lack solid evidence to support their claims. Take, for example, The Law of Attraction and The Secret. These methods suggest that everything we manifest in life stems solely from our thoughts. While it's a nice idea, it's not entirely accurate, and it can even feel a bit insensitive. Blaming ourselves for not achieving our dreams just because we didn't think about them correctly? That doesn't sound very encouraging, does it?

 

Scienced-based manifestation

Now, let's shift gears to the science-based approaches that can help turn your dreams into reality. Decades of research have shown that putting effort into reaching your goals is key. Whether it's focusing on self-improvement or setting clear objectives, engaging in activities that move you closer to your dreams is where the magic truly happens. For instance, if you're dreaming of financial success, learning how to build a thriving business might be a great first step. And if it's love you're after, taking time for self-reflection can help you pinpoint what truly matters in a relationship.

 

Skills for Manifestation

So, what are the skills that can supercharge your manifestation journey? Let's break them down:


Eagerness: Embrace new challenges with open arms.


Initiative: Take that first step towards your goals.


Intrinsic motivation: Do things because they matter to you, not just for external rewards.


Desire for self-improvement: Keep growing and evolving.


Passion: Find joy in the journey towards your dreams.


Commitment: Stick with it, even when the going gets tough.


Self-belief: Trust in your ability to make your dreams a reality.


Resilience: Bounce back from setbacks stronger than ever.

 

Four Do-able Manifestation Techniques

Now, let's talk about some quick and easy strategies you can start using right away:


1. Write for manifestation: Pour your thoughts onto paper and watch clarity emerge. Not only does this help you understand your goals better, but it can also improve your overall well-being.


2. Write down your goals: Setting goals increases your chances of success. Be specific and map out the steps you'll take to achieve them.


3. Try positive affirmations: Shift your mindset by repeating uplifting phrases to yourself. Over time, these affirmations can become ingrained in your thinking, boosting your confidence and belief in yourself.


4. Set positive but realistic expectations: Ever heard of the placebo effect? Our expectations can influence outcomes, so stay optimistic while remaining grounded in reality.

 

Remember, manifesting your dreams is a journey, not a sprint. So, embrace the process, stay positive, and believe in yourself. Your dreams are within reach—you've got this!
