Attract Results More Quickly
If you want your desires to come to you more quickly, you must align your actions to match them. You’ll be in perfect alignment with your goals when you can clearly envision them, easily communicate them and steadily act upon them. A person who is badly out of alignment will think one thing, feel or say something entirely different, and then act in a way that doesn’t match any of their thoughts, words or feelings. They seem to be tied up in a ball of conflicting impulses and it can be a confusing experience to be around them, to say the least. When people habitually operate out of alignment, they slow their progress and create inconsistent, intermittent results.
It’s true, we all feel unsure at times and everyone needs time to think things through; but once you do get clear, it might feel really good to start moving forward again.
Act as if it’s on the Way
Imagine that as soon as you declare a goal, it responds and starts moving towards you. You and your goal are like two planets that get caught up in the gravitational field of one another. There might still be a great distance between you, but you’re both heading right for each other, and action is the best way to meet the goal somewhere in the middle. As soon as you set a goal and take action, you shorten the time and distance in which you actually bump into it. Yes, your thoughts have the power to attract your desires but your action reinforces and fortifies the messages you’ve sent to the universal manager. Without words, your action declares, “I’m not kidding; I meant it when I said wanted this goal.” I am sure you’ve heard the saying, “Action speaks louder than words.” This means that your subconscious mind, the universe and the people around you get the clearest, strongest message from your actions, not your words.
Coaching Tip: Take the first step today. Getting started is always the hardest part of any project, but you will build momentum as you go. Momentum is something that you earn so can’t wait to have it before you get started. It’s hard work to roll a boulder up a hill, but once you reach the top and the boulder starts tipping over the other slope, there’s nothing you can do to stop it from picking up speed quickly.
Expect the Best
“Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.”
~ Eileen Caddy, author
Why is it so important to stay positive? The Law of Attraction helps us manifest by default even when we’re not making requests consciously. The Law itself is neutral. Keep in mind, that action is a great declaration of positive expectation. When you act on your desires, you clearly demonstrate your belief that good things will happen. And you’ll get what you’re seeking so if you’re expecting to create good results and experiences, you will. Expect good things and act as if you know they’re on the way. Keep your focus on the positive, and don’t expect the thing you don’t want.
