Are your thoughts aligned with your goal?

What does it mean to “align your thoughts with your goal” and why is it worth your time?


The short and simple answer to why it’s worth your time to align your thoughts with your goals – dreams – desires – is because doing so makes the journey faster, easier and more enjoyable.  Think “flow.”  Thoughts that are contrary to what you are wanting to achieve or experience, however, make the process slower, more complicated and more stressful.  Think “struggle.”

3 Thought Tweaks for Easier Manifesting in 2016

Knowing how to manifest and thinking the thoughts that make manifesting fun and easy are two very different things.  

The basic manifestation process is:

  1. Be as clear and specific as possible about what you want. “Begin with the end in mind,” as Stephen Covey puts it.  This gives you direction.
  2. Know why you want it. Know the essence of what you want to create and what that feels like.  This provides you with the motivation to take action.
  3. Believe that you can achieve your desire. This aligns you with your desire.  If you do not believe, you will not achieve…period.
  4. Trust that each step to your goal will unfold at the right time. This keeps you open to receive your next step.
  5. Take inspired action as each next step reveals itself. This gives you momentum and makes the journey fun.

Knowing this process is a good place to start, but unless your thoughts are in alignment with what you’re wanting, your journey is going to be difficult at best.  So here are 3 simple “thought tweaks” that will help you reach your goal more easily and have a lot of fun along the way: Read More

Job_Search_Tip_of_the_Week_Job_You_Hate_Crosswalk_2The greatest danger related to looking for a new job while you’re currently employed in a job you hate (for whatever reason) is that you are very likely to end up right back in the same situation, just at a different location with different characters.  Why?  Because like attracts like, and your negative energy cannot attract anything but similar people and experiences into your life.
