Successful manifestation involves asking (communicating what you want to the Universe) and receiving (taking action to facilitate materialization of the desire).
In today’s post we’re going to focus on the process that guides the act of receiving: setting goals.
Intelligent goal-setting gives you heightened control over the present and future.
Conscious creation revolves around these two segments of your timeline. What you do in the present time will help push along the manifestation of any specific desire that you are focusing on at the present time.
1. Work with baby steps. –“Baby steps” are the seemingly insignificant steps that lead actually lead to the big things in your list of goals.
People often set the monumental goals in the beginning and stop there. If you do this, you will find yourself demotivated because things are taking too long to accomplish. You may also feel that you’re not getting anywhere because your present accomplishments are nowhere near your goal.
To create “baby steps,” first think of an end-goal that you would like to accomplish in the long term.
When you identify the end-goal, work backwards by asking yourself: what’s stopping me from having this right now? List down the things that are blocking your way. Next, write down the steps that you need to take to eliminate those obstacles.
Expand your list like a tree so that the number of baby steps multiply.
Each “branch” of the tree will be a collection of small, easy steps that you can probably start doing today.
You will feel good that you’re able to move forward at an accelerated pace and this will give you the confidence and motivation to continue. Be sure to create a to do list that contains all the baby steps so you can check them off one by one, as you complete each step.
2. Learn from the experts. –In the digital age, there’s plenty of information and resources where you’ll learn from the best in each field.
It’s important that you invest in yourself by learning from the experts. If you need to invest in books and manuals to learn more about the problems that you are trying to solve, do so because expert knowledge will likely save you time and energy.
Modelling what experts have done in the past will also improve your end-results.
The “trial and error” phase of accomplishing items in a goal list is the most time-consuming part of conscious creation. While the phase isn’t completely eliminated even after you’ve learned from the experts, you’ll be able to avoid common pitfalls and mistakes.
3. Measure your progress. – The worst kind of goal is the one that you can’t measure.
A goal is deemed measurable if it has the following characteristics:
– The goal has a definite beginning (starting point) and end. A goal that goes on and on without stopping is an impracticable goal and should be revised immediately. An example of such a goal is “I want to have infinite wealth.”
– The goal has to be able to provide a clear advantage or benefit to you. If you’re going to spend time, energy and other resources on accomplishing a goal, it has to provide a meaningful and palpable benefit.
You make this your goal without knowing why and how lifting barbells will help you lose weight. The goal in its present form is not ideal because the goal-setter is unaware of the main advantage of the goal itself.
– The goal has to be achievable at the present time. This criterion is best measured by your ability to think of action steps that bring you closer to accomplishing the said goal.
If you can’t think of anything that you can do now to attain it, perhaps it’s too much for your resources at the present time? Rethink and modify your goal to make it more attainable.
– And finally, your goal needs to be bound by a certain timeframe. A goal without a timeframe is disorganized and there’s no guarantee that you will be able to motivate yourself to accomplish it at all.
Estimating a timeframe also makes you responsible for your goal/s. Don’t overdo it though: set a sufficient amount of time for each baby step so you won’t be overwhelmed.
