The one initial secret to abundance is knowing exactly what you want, because it is practically impossible for the universe to give you what you want if you don’t know what that looks like.
Let’s give you an example.
Imagine that you work at an electronic store. You see a customer wandering around looking like he can’t find what he is looking for.
You want to help him so you approach him and ask if you can help them finding what they are looking for. The customers say: “Yes, I would appreciate some help!”
Then you proceed to ask what he is looking for.
And the customer answer: “I am not sure; I was hoping you could help me finding it.”
How confusing would that be for you.
Where would you start?
People who know exactly what they want can manifest their desires. It is sometimes easier to identify what we want by focusing on a feeling.
For example, you know you don’t want to be tied financially because you need to feel financial freedom. That feeling will be important because the more that feeling is present in your life, the more you will know that you are moving toward what you desire.
When you define what you want, simply start with the following statement: “I want!” That will stop you from describing what you don’t want and clarify what your desire looks like.
A simple way to be clear and define what you want to manifest is to create a SMART goal. A SMART goal is basically a statement that is specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound.
For example, let’s say that you want to purchase a car.
If you use the SMART goal approach, it would look like this:
I want to purchase a car by the end of the year.
I will need to save $2,000 for deposit
Yes, that is achievable since it is around $167 per month
Yes, it is relevant because this car will allow me to go to work and make my life more efficient.
As you can see from this example, the SMART goal will allow you to be very specific in what you want. It will also encourage a reflection that may lead you to realize that your goal might not be as relevant as it could be.
