10 Manifestation Techniques for Success That Work
Here are our 10 picks for the manifestation techniques that are sure to help you succeed in life.
“You are what you think. So just think big, believe big, act big, work big, give big, forgive big, laugh big, love big and live big.”
This is one of the many notable quotes of Andrew Carnegie, the Scottish-American industrialist and philanthropist who emigrated to Pittsburgh with his parents in 1848 at the age of 12, started working as a telegrapher and later became one of the richest Americans in history. By the time he was 24, he had investments in railroads, railroad sleeping cars, bridges and oil derricks. Aside from becoming a leading philanthropist in the U.S., Great Britain and the British Empire, he is best remembered as having led the expansion of America’s steel industry in the late 19th century.
Who wouldn’t want to be as successful as Andrew Carnegie, right? But where do we even start?
Well, as Andrew himself so cleverly put it, it all starts in the mind.
The mind is an amazingly powerful tool that can be harnessed to achieve what we desire. That involves manifestation, the process of using the right thought processes to make our dreams come true.
There are many ways to achieve this, referred to as manifestation techniques. Some are more effective than others. To help make sure you get the most out of life, here are our 10 picks for the most effective manifestation techniques for success.
Start Clearing Your Mind of Negativity
Many people don’t go after what they want because they’re discouraged by their negative thoughts.
Take fear. Sure, it can be scary to pursue our goals. It might be hard, we might fail and most don’t even know how to go about it.
But why cast yourself down right from the start?
Hope for the best instead of stressing over everything that could go wrong.
If you start out in a positive frame of mind, it will be easier to keep trying to achieve your goals even if it gets hard. The more you try, the better your chances at success.
Determine What You Really Want
If asked what they want in life, most people answer with vague concepts. The most common ones include happiness, love and lots of money. While these are all great things to have in life, they’re not exactly clear. For example, when we say we want lots of money, what do we even mean? Do we want $100 million? A billion? How much would be enough?
Instead of thinking about your success in such broad terms, be more specific. Say you do want to be rich. Instead of just being wealthy, why not start a business that becomes so successful you’ll be able to retire in the next few years?
The more concrete details your goal has, the easier it will be for you to come up with the steps needed to achieve it.
Dig Deep Into Your “Why”
Okay, we admit, figuring out the one thing we really want to have or do is easier said than done. It’s like trying to predict how our lives will turn out in the end. It’s not easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
If you have a hard time coming up with your life’s goal, explore why you want to succeed. Understanding why you want to have or do a certain thing will make it clear what that one thing you really want to have or do is.
For example, if you want to fall in love, what you might really want is to meet someone with whom you could spend the rest of your life and who feels the same way about you so you can be safe, secure and happy when you’re old.
Remember, be as detailed about your goal as possible so you know exactly how to achieve it. You’ll only be able to do so by exploring your “why.”
Trust the Process
As we already said, pursuing your life’s goal won’t be easy. You’ll have to work hard, you might have to make sacrifices and you might have to get out of your comfort zone. But, as Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th U.S. president, said, “Nothing worth having comes easy.”
If you do have a tough time trying to succeed in life, know that it’s just part of the process. Just keep it at. Surrender to the process. Believe in it. Believe in yourself that you’ll make it. When all’s said and done, your life would have been changed for the better.
Visualize Your Success
Remember that saying “fake it till you make it”? It’s not just for developing self-confidence. It can also be applied to the pursuit of success.
Picture this: You’re the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. You have thousands of employees. You make billions of dollars every year. You own multiple mansions across the country. You have a loving spouse and kids.
If you already see yourself as having already succeeded in life in your mind, you’ll be much more confident you’ll succeed in the real world. You can gain this confidence by visualizing your success as often as you can. The more clear your success is in your mind, the more confident you’ll be.
Physically Prepare for Your Success
As important as it is to see yourself as successful in actually becoming so, you still need to do things to make it happen. In other words, you need to take action. That involves making the necessary adjustments in your life to make sure your “wish” gets granted.
If you want to be in a relationship, that means making the needed space for it in your life.
If you want to land your dream job, that means gaining the skills you need to get it.
Project More Positive Energy
It can be hard to stay positive if you run into obstacles in pursuit of success. Keep negative thoughts from creeping back into your mind during hard times by becoming more positive.
The easiest way you can become more positive is by being nicer to the people around you. Smiling more, asking them about their day and giving them compliments are just some of the ways you can try that take little to no effort.
The more positive energy you exude, the more positive energy you attract. The more positive energy you draw to yourself, the more positivity there will be in your life.
Become More Grateful
It’s easy to assume we haven’t achieved much in life when we compare ourselves to others. But if we look closely, we’ll realize we have so much more than what we thought we had.
If you have a roof over your head, you eat three meals every day and you have electricity, clean clothes, clean water and a clean bed to rest on, you’re better off than millions of people around the world.
Be grateful for everything you have and every step you take towards achieving your goal—no matter how small—and your life will be brimming with positivity, attracting success to you even more.
Start Living in the Moment More
Every time you start looking back on all the mistakes you’ve made in the past or thinking about everything that could go wrong in your life in the future, yank yourself back to the present. There’s nothing we can do about what we’ve done in the past and there’s no knowing for sure what will happen to us in the future, but we can make the best of the present.
Use the Manifestation Tools That Best Suit You
Given how hard pursuing success could be, it’s a good thing there are tools we can use to give ourselves a fighting chance.
For instance, if you’re a visual person, you can use a vision board to visualize your life’s goal more easily.
No matter what you choose, just make sure it suits you so you won’t have any issues with it. The easier it is to use, the more help it will be in achieving your goal.
