You get what you think about, whether you want it or not.
You get what you think about whether you want it or not. I cannot recall who said this, but that is that way the universe and your mind works. We are all possessed with being able to create what we want. You may not believe this but the second you do, the manifestation begins. Earl Nightingale once said “You get what you think about, whatever you plant in you mind is what you will get, good and bad, the mind does not care what you plant.” Of course, I am paraphrasing to make my point.
Let me introduce you to a simple concept that I truly believe in. Whatever you really want in your life has always been waiting for you. We are the ones that keep moving in the opposite direction. In this article, I am proposing this: why not apply some simple methods like that one below to get closer to what is already waiting for you?
The simple method that I have been using to manifest what I want to create is the D-I-S-H method. The D-I-S-H method will get your mind and thoughts aligned with what you want to create or desire.
The first trigger is the “D” in D-I-S-H and that is to DECIDE what you really want, I called this in my earlier article your “worthy ideal.” By the way, you can have multiples of these and the same method works for all of them. Without a decision, it’s difficult to create (not impossible) but it will just take you longer to get there.
Once you decide, you go right to the “I”, which is to INFORM yourself or INVESTIGATE your decision. Find out as much as you can about your decision ask the following:
- Is it realistic, and what skills do I need…?
- What education, experience, or challenges are there…?
- What are the rewards that come with this decision…?
Ask questions and be passionately curious about the decision. Remember, this is a decision that is a true “worthy ideal.” It means something to you, and it has a real purpose and benefit to you and others whom you care about.
The “S” is to SHARE your decision with as many people as you can, with conviction. It’s almost like letting people know you are already there. This is really your thoughts aligning with your desires. It’s like you have developed a partnership with your thoughts. I am always amazed how well this works, but unfortunately, only 27% of us believe this.
The last part in D-I-S-H is the “H,” and you can probably guess what this one is: HOLD or HANG on to your decision, and get ready for the naysayers to come out of the woodwork. Many times it’s the people closest to you and those whom you care about the most. The secret is that you have already armed yourself with all of the information and details needed to make the decision that puts you in the driver’s seat. Everybody else is a passenger for this specific decision. This is also an opportunity to educate and explain to others how you got your mind to approve where you are headed.
This can also help others understand that you are serious and are moving forward. If you have the time show them D-I-S-H method and get them on their path to success, you will have most fun sharing this with everyone.
