I realize it’s hard to imagine your life being what you want if it’s not there yet. However, leveraging your power of imagination is essential to moving toward that ideal life. If you can’t imagine it, it can’t happen.

Do you know what you want? Just like a map, you have a destination and a path to get there.

If we don’t know where we are going, how will we know when we are there? Sometimes we don’t take the time to think about this. We are busy going to work, getting the kids to soccer, taking care of the house and paying bills. I often ask the “miracle” question: If a miracle happens tonight while you are asleep, and tomorrow morning the world as you know it is the way you want it – your perfect dream life – what would that look like? You may want to take some quiet time and ponder this for a while. Get a pen and paper and write down your thoughts. This could be your wish list.

Don’t misunderstand me. The Law of Attraction is not magic. We don’t manifest material goods or personal success simply by thinking about them. However, the universe provides us with what we need; the people, methods and opportunities to help us achieve what we want. Hard work may be a part of the equation or maybe not. The key is for us to see the opportunities and make the most of them.

Focus on what you want and feel what it will be like when you’re there. Then notice what goes on in your life.
