“[One] of the principal reasons why so many fail to get what they want is because they do not definitely know what they want, or because they change their wants almost every day.”
“Know what you want and continue to want it. You will get it if you combine desire with faith. The power of desire when combined with faith becomes invincible.”
– Christian D. Larson
I’m sure I have hammered the importance of writing down your dreams, desires, goals, and ideas by now. In my mini-series aimed at inspiring young minds, I recently wrote that knowing what you want is possibly the most challenging part of manifesting your dreams…it’s hard to manifest nothing.
One way to get clear about what you want is to write it down. Every so often, I write down my list of goals and desires. I did that today. I encourage you to create your own list too. Don’t think about it, just write, anything and everything that comes to mind, big or small. It doesn’t matter if you think it’s outrageous or undoable, just play along with a spirit of youthful enthusiasm.
I’m sure you’re familiar with how Jim Carrey walked up to the Hollywood Hills and wrote a check to himself for ten million dollars, post dated several years into the future. On the memo line, he wrote, “For Acting Services Rendered.” For years, he carried the check around with him, believing that it was real; it just hadn’t manifested yet. Here’s a short clip of him telling his story to Oprah many years ago:
You may not know that Scott Adams, creator of the Dilbert comic strip, also got his start by writing down his desire to become a cartoonist while he was working tech jobs that he was not passionate about. He would doodle at his desk, and then started writing “I will become a syndicated cartoonist,” fifteen times a day.
“When you write down a goal, you’ll observe things happening that will make that objective more likely to materialize.”
– Scott Adams
Eventually, his goal did materialize – he got a contract for his strip to be syndicated. And then he started writing, “I will be the best cartoonist on the planet.” That’s a matter of taste. Whether you like Dilbert or not, it’s clear that Scott Adams is definitely successful, and living his dream!
When you write down your intentions with a light-hearted attitude of joy, your energetic vibration is one of abundance, and the Universe goes to work to make it happen. Trust the process and watch your dreams unfold!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
