How to Get What You Want When You Want it

by: Anastasia Kile

The Art of Allowing

Have you been trying and trying to manifest something and it just isn’t working? Have you been asking, feeling, visualizing, and everything else that everyone says you’re supposed to do, but things still haven’t changed?

Well, I have the solution for you! It is the art of allowing yourself to have what you want, a.k.a. the law of detachment.

The art of allowing is all about letting your desires go. It is telling yourself that “whatever is meant to be will be. If I’m meant to have it, I’ll have it. If not, that’s okay. All is well.”

Now, the tricky thing with allowing is that it often sounds much easier than it is. As I’m sure you can see. After all, why would you be asking for something if you were okay with never getting it…with things remaining exactly as they are?

Well, let me begin by saying that allowing is not about giving up. You are not giving up on your dreams. Instead, you are acknowledging that everything is okay and it will continue to be so because the Universe has your best interests at heart. To allow is to remember that all you have to do is ask and receive.

Sometimes there are other factors involved in your manifestation. For example, if you are manifesting your dream vacation, I am sure you also want nice weather, great accommodations, kind and helpful people everywhere you go, and so forth. These extra elements also have to be created. And even though you may want your dream vacation right now, however long it takes for everything to come together is the exact amount of time needed to manifest your desire.

Also, remember that every time you begin to have doubts about whether your dream is manifesting, or feel nervous, anxious, or impatient, you are blocking the flow of energy needed to create what you have asked for. It is as if you are cancelling your order for the very thing you want.

Now, of course we all want what we want when we want it. But you cannot look at the lack in your life, at how you still do not have what you want, because in doing so you are merely creating more lack. Instead, you need to look towards what you desire. You need to have faith that all will be well and you will receive what you desire at the appropriate time. The sooner you can come to terms with that, the sooner you will have what you desire.

The more positive, excited, happy, and expectant you feel about something, the more you are allowing it to happen. Your goal is not to stop thinking about what you want, but to feel good whenever you think about it. Simply let go of all doubts about manifesting what you want. Allow it to be.

Giving Thanks – Even When You Think You Have Nothing To Be Thankful For

by: Mitchell Dahood M.A.

Everyday is the perfect day to give thanks for all that you have in your life. I know some of you, may be thinking “what do I have to be thankful for?”

Many of you may have lost a job, or lost your home. Maybe you’re experiencing a challenge with your health, or a relationship. Regardless of your personal situation, I have yet to meet anyone who does not have something to be grateful for.

Especially if you feel you have nothing to be grateful for, you more than anyone need to give thanks. Why? Because the Universe is not going to give you more than you already have unless you give thanks and show appreciation for what you do have.

If you are someone who feels you have nothing to be grateful for, let me offer some guidance. Did you wake up this morning? Then give thanks for the gift of another day, another opportunity to make a new start and walk down a new path.

Are you reading these words right now? Then give thanks for the gift of sight, and the ability to read and understand. With this gift you can acquire all the knowledge you need to change your situation for the better.

Are you aware of any sounds around you? Then give thanks for the gift to hear; to hear the laughter of children, to hear the sound of birds in the trees, and to hear your favorite song on the radio.

No matter how small or insignificant you may think it is, give thanks for it. When you do, the feeling and energy inside of yourself will begin to change.

The more you give thanks and show appreciation for what you have in your life, the more you will find others appreciate you. The more others appreciate you, the better you feel about yourself, and the more you open up to the possibilities all around you.

The more open you are to the possibilities all around, the more possibilities will be open to you. Before you know it you will be walking through life with a renewed energy. An energy filled with purpose, passion and hope.

So what are you are you thankful for?

When Life Gives You Waves, Learn to S.U.R.F.

by: Frank F. Lunn

Would you like to learn a skill set and technique so powerful that you could learn to recycle every failure, disappointment, setback and discouraging situation into a steppingstone for your success? Would you like to go into every situation with confidence knowing you will have the skills to convert it into an experience with a positive benefit?

Imagine skilled and highly trained fighters going into a difficult and scary situation. They don’t go looking for it, but when it comes, they are ready and prepared. They realize it will probably be very painful and even scary, but with their training and developed skill set, their odds are favorable.

You have an opportunity to use the same approach to adversities and difficulties entering our lives. We don’t go looking for adversity; it finds us. We can’t necessarily avoid pain or suffering, but if we use our training, we have a better chance for survival and eventually find some benefit or lesson we can take and claim a victory.

Change, difficulties and adversity will happen. Your only point of control is the surfing skill set you develop to adapt and make the best out of whatever comes your way. It is not really what happens to you that matters as much as your response to what happens. Your response determines your outcome. Think of change and adversity as waves of the ocean, then consider your response to those waves. Success is not necessarily in your talents and abilities, but in the choices you make in application to the waves. You can’t change or fight the wave. Your only real choice is to adapt to it.

Apply the S.U.R.F. Strategy to Make the Best of the Waves

The S.U.R.F. Strategy is a simple, quick strategy to adapt and positively respond to whatever waves come your way. This keeps your attitude as an ally working for you rather than an adversary working against you. You cannot control the waves; you can only control your response and develop the skills to adapt to whatever comes your way.

The Four Steps of the S.U.R.F. Strategy

The S.U.R.F. strategy involves four steps:

Survey the situation
Understand your options
Respond based on your goals
Forward focus in action and attitude

1. Survey the Situation

When you are tumbled by a wave (adversity), you have to regain your bearing and figure out exactly where you are. Leave emotion behind and survey your situation. What new opportunities might be found or developed? Now is the opportunity to create a new plan. It might be tempting to get caught up in the heat of the moment and feel like you are without options. Take a step back to gain perspective. With an understanding of where you are and what choices you have, you can make the most of the opportunities.

2. Understand Your Options

After you know where you are, begin to assess options for moving forward. Focus only on solutions. After you survey your situation, it’s time to make way for positive solutions and options. Ask questions like: “What can I gain?” or “What contacts can I make?” Maintain a positive outlook regardless of the situation – even if you do not immediately see the opportunity. Stay focused on the outcome you want and where you want to go.

Look optimistically for creative ways to use the situation for good – don’t lament your misfortune. The opportunity may be hidden. Learn to look for it. This is a creative success habit, and it only comes with practice. Become an opportunity farmer. Look for the hidden benefits behind each change and every situation.

3. Respond Based on Your Goals

Now assess the options in front of you. Some may be better than others. Some may be more complicated or difficult to see. Weigh the pros and cons of each option. You might find your best option right now is to persist in your current situation. You may find yourself riding a wave bigger than you think you can handle. It may be a wild ride, but at least it will be interesting.

Remember, you always have choices. The only thing you can control is your attitude. Regardless of the wave, you have the power to choose. Make sure your response is in line with your goals.

4. Forward Focus in Action and Attitude

You can’t surf yesterday’s wave. The past is the past. Now it is time to think creatively toward the future. Take positive action. Don’t let things happen to you. Create the conditions and outcomes you seek! Now that you are surfing the wave, maintain focus on where you want to go and what you want to do. Maintain a vivid mental image of your successful future finding ways to keep taking action in that direction.

When Bad Surf Happens to Good Surfers

As you surf life’s waves, you will see good waves and bad ones. You will have some awesome rides and some gnarly wipe outs. You will meet fellow surfers who want to help you out and those who would rather beat you down. There will be sunny days to enjoy the beach. There will also be storms that take away your enjoyment and opportunity as the sea becomes unstable and unsuitable for your purposes. Injustice, rude people, hardships, difficulties and even some bad things will happen in your life. We cannot control those. The only thing we can control is our attitude and the actions we choose to take in response.

Living is not about playing it safe. Test yourself. Learn the full measure of your surfing ability. Do not hide from the waves. You can learn from both your great rides and your wipe outs. Opportunity does not come to the passive. Be active and create your opportunities. Sometimes opportunities only come through difficult situations. Adversity doesn’t build character, it reveals it. How you choose to respond to adversity reveals your true character. Your true character is uncovered in the actions of your response and in the choices you make. Your character is revealed in the promises you keep and in the convictions you hold true. Ultimately, your character is a mirror of the guiding principles in your life. What you do and say reveal to the world who you are.

You Cannot Control the Weather

Neither you nor I can control the weather. We cannot control what it will be today and we cannot affect in any way what it will be tomorrow. It is what it is. The same weather will make some people joyous and others miserable. When there is a snow day that shuts down everything, kids rejoice, while parents who need to miss work or scramble for child care do not. Rain is great when the farmers need it for the crops and devastating when the river peaks the levies. Hot sunny days are fantastic for people to enjoy a picnic, yet miserable when you are in the field working.

Weather in itself is neither good nor bad. It is up to us in our decision of how we choose to weather our personal storms and whether they leave us stronger and more resolute or weakened and cowering until the next one. In the same way, adversities are going to come your way, just like the waves of the ocean. All you can really do about them is learn to surf . . . and convert challenges, difficulties and hardships into opportunities.

Make Every Day A Mother’s Day!

by: Angela Renee

The word mother and mothers day are simple, yet powerful little words that you hear all the time especially so around the time of mothers day when everyone seem to be scrambling for ideas to say thank you, you are surely loved and you are appreciated all over again.

But if you would just take time out, you would realize that useful hints were probably being dropped all alone and throughout the year. In fact, with that special day being only a few weeks away, some of your thoughts at this time can range anywhere from what are you going to do for your mother, spouse or other loved one to should it be a product gift or something more personal. If it is the product route, how can it be made more personalized? If it is the gift of time, how can it be made more personal?

Mothers Day for some will be welcomed with feelings of excitement while for others it may be a day of mixed feelings especially so if the mother you will honor has lost a child to tragedy. So that is why whenever you wish to honor someone in your own little way, you should consider where that person may be in their life and then the event. Many people say that it’s the thought that counts and yes that’s a very good point but so is too know a person and mother’s day is no exception.

To give you some examples, consider a single mother who’s been struggling to raise her children and doing it all alone in every sense of the word, what would make her day on mother’s day? What about a seventy-two year old mother who has raised her children but suddenly took on the new responsibilities of raising her grand children, what would she possibly want or deserve?

Sure a bouquet of flowers or some other last minute gift would be nice and probably get you off the hook but what would that mother really want to do for that special day? Would she want to spend her day filled with family and special friends or have a day of being responsibility free? If you were in that person’s shoes, which would you hope that someone would honor you with for mother’s day?

You see mothers day or any other day can be made more personal when you put some careful thought into your gift idea. What else would that mother enjoy? What has she wanted to do for a long time? What has she not gotten to experience in her lifetime? How can you really show her she is appreciated?

Even a gift that is accompanied with a carefully written letter or note with meaning can put a smile on a mother’s face! Yes, I know this will not work for all moms but that’s why in the article it says that YOU need to really know that person. So please just remember it really is the thought that counts especially when you did take some time out to put some thought into your mother’s day gift.

Oh, one last thing, I invite you to help every day become a Mother’s Day. By the way moms, it is ok to drop hints about how you would like to spend your special day and with hope, your spouse, partner, or other loved one will graciously honor your small request. After all, mother’s day on the calendar only comes once a year.
