9 Steps to Manifest A Life You Love

July 25, 2017

by Mary Shores

There is a life-changing theme both ancient and spiritual that is now backed by science. You possess the power to create and transform your life. Every thought you think, every word you speak, and every choice you make is creating your world and the way you perceive it. For that reason, I have decided to share with you 9 steps for how to manifest a life you love.

1. Knock off the Negative Self-Talk

I can’t… I’m not good enough… I’ll never find what I want…
How often do you consider the strain these negative words have on your mind, your choices, and your life? The persistent messages you repeat can frame your thoughts and trap you in a mindset that can be difficult to break. The words you use have the power to create your life.

2. Stop Trying to be 100% Perfect

No one is perfect! Summon the courage to bulldoze your barrier beliefs and take action in the direction of your dreams.

3. Break Through Your Doubt

It’s the doubt that holds you back. I’m talking about when you inside, outside, backwards, and forwards know what you want, know it will work, know you can do it, and can hold the vision but do nothing. That is your doubt in conflict with your dreams. If you can take action (even something small) you can breakthrough your overwhelming self-doubt.

4. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

Your greatest manifestations happen outside of your comfort zone. Whenever you are at your edge, what if you are actually at the beginning? This is the springboard into a magical series of your biggest desires manifesting.

5. Fight Your FEAR

Know this: You are only as powerful as the action you are willing to take. Put your dreams in charge, not your fears and understand that it takes courage to do anything worth doing!

6. Stay the Course

Perseverance is having the power, strength, and determination to do what you know you need to do even when you don’t feel like it.

7. Change Your Story

Reliving your stories again and again keeps you swirling inside those stories. The story you tell yourself, about yourself, becomes your identity.

8. Be Authentic

Authenticity: The practice of choosing moment to moment how you portray yourself in the world.

9. Keep the Dream Alive

Every person who achieved greatness was a dreamer who had a clear vision of what they wanted and the ability to create a plan to get there.

    I LOVE the no negative self-talk thing. I tell my husband that all the time! Breaking through my doubt is the one I struggle with, I have to work on it more. And I agree…stay the course. I am currently wearing a bracelet that says “all in” to remind myself that I’m all in on what I’m working on and I need to stay the course. 

    I have learned to be okay with not being perfect all the time. Having multiple kids has taught me that for sure. Staying positive is definitely the key to loving the life you have.

    #6 STAY THE COURSE is exactly what I needed. Sometime it’s hard trying to stay motivated especially when you feel like what you’ve been doing is getting repetitive or when you feel like you’ve been in the same spot for too long. I had to start finding motivation in other small things. I needed this post, thank you!

    ALL OF THIS YES! You are speaking to me. This season in my life I am feeling ready to accomplish and dream. I am following the dream and being myself. I am loving this season of my life.

    Yes, I know… the negative talk. I bring myself down sometimes and I’m trying hard to have a more positive outlook on life. Your suggestions are inspiring and totally relevant! Love this sort of pick-me-up!

    Love this! Negative self talk is definitely my weakness. I’ve learned that I need to be realistic with myself, and put my expectations at a place that I can meet, and then be proud when I get there. We will never be happy if we’re comparing ourselves with others, but we will find contentment when we focus on our dreams and take the steps to attain them!

    This post is so spot on. I always try to live my life without regrets but then there are days when all my sentences start with “I wish” or “If only.” I admit there are things I long to do, like travel extensively, (visit Santorini in particular), own my dream truck (its is still a dream), and have a house with a big backyard. But these are material things. I need to learn to love my life and be thankful for the blessings I receive everyday, even if I don’t really deserve it. I am far more fortunate that a whole lot of people. Thank you for this reminder. Have a blessed day.

    Very good words of motivation. It was awesome reading this post as I was reminded of my goals in life and to keep pushing so that I could finally achieve them. Fear is one enemy that’s somehow self-inflicted and the moment we get over it or learn how to face it is the moment we start moving forward!

    This is definitely the BEST post I read today! Several of these points were (and some still are) holding me back from achieving my dreams. This post is a reality check in a positive way! My favorite sentence from this post; “Whenever you are at your edge, what if you are actually at the beginning?”

    These are excellent tips … ones I wish I would’ve been told years ago. I recently realized how much I gave into my fears but I am finally fighting that battle. I also need to get out of my comfort zone more. (Still struggling with that one.)

  • Reply Kristi Dominguez July 26, 2017 at 4:31 pm

    Yes to EVERYTHING! I’m a big believer in staying the course…it has POWER! Not giving up is the key to success…and success is such a big part of loving life! I love all of your tips…so helpful.

    Yes! I did this over seven years ago and used many of these techniques. Moving abroad to a new country alone forced me to entirely change how I approach life and it was the most frightening and liberating thing I’ve ever done. I still don’t know how I plucked up the courage to do it, but I did and the results have been amazing!

    I think all of these are points towards positive living. I think the first point is the most important with leaving behind negative talk or negativity in any way. I think trying to get out of a comfort zone is difficult for many people. I’d love to know my magical series after this.
