Is It Possible to Manifest Positive Change in Your Life?

If you’ve been keeping up with the trends in health and wellness over the last couple of years, you’ve probably come across the idea of manifesting positive change in your life. The concept is that you have the power to achieve exactly what you want by believing that it will happen. So for example, if you are unhappy in your job and want to start your own business, once you manifest the idea and really visualize what it will be like, you will become a business owner.

Of course, manifesting an idea doesn’t mean all your dreams will magically come true over night. It’s simply a way to realize what you want, what you deserve, and what you have to do to get it.

I personally love manifesting positive change. Not only does it help me achieve some of my goals, it also aids in the development of three essential skills and beliefs that contribute to a highly successful and happy person.

Increases self-esteem

This is the biggest benefit of manifesting positive change because developing a strong sense of self-worth and high self-esteem is not always easy to master. But setting your mind to something, whether it’s losing 20 pounds, moving to a new city, or finding a supportive relationship, means you believe that you deserve what you desire. Manifesting positive change helped me realize that I deserve to be happy, which in turn led to achieving the goals I set for myself.

Promotes goal setting

It’s easy to say, “I want to save enough money this year to take a trip to Paris.” But figuring out just how to do that is a different story. If you’re committed to manifesting the idea that you will go to Paris, you begin taking steps to achieve this goal almost unintentionally. The trip becomes so consuming that you make it a priority to put $100 a week into a travel fund or listen to your French language classes during your commute. Before you know it, you’ll be buying your plane ticket and attributing it to the manifestation of positive change. The more you do this, the more naturally goal setting, and more importantly goal keeping, will come.  

Decreases dependency

It’s not uncommon to hear things like, “I’d be happier if I had a boyfriend” or “I would feel more settled if I had a new apartment.” Realizing that you have the power to manifest positive change reverses this thought process. You start to realize that it isn’t the boyfriend or the apartment that will make you happy, but in fact you have the power to make yourself happy by achieving the goals you set for yourself. It’s a win-win!
