Welcome back to the Design Your Fabulous Future Blog.  Last week, we kicked off our Your Life Your Way series with advice on what to do if you need more clarity about what you want in life.  You can read that blog post here – you’re definitely going to benefit from it and you’ll also benefit from watching my latest webinar  How to Get Clarity about What You Want so You Can Get the Results You Desire. 

Today, you’re going to learn some of the next steps you can take after you’ve gotten clear about the fabulous future of your dreams and you’re ready to bring it to life.

From my story, which I relate in my webinars, you’ll know that I’ve applied all of the tools and techniques that I share with you to create and live my own dream life. I’ve overcome obstacles like self-doubt and limiting beliefs to really step up and step into my own fabulous future.   Now, I’d like to share a sample of three of the techniques that have worked for me with you here.

Love the Law of Attraction

At its core, the Law of Attraction is the idea that like attracts like, or, to put it another way, whatever you think about is what’s drawn to you.  Consider yourself a shiny, tall radio tower.  Every thought and feeling you have is a signal you emit out into the Universe.  The Law of Attraction tells us that we will call in people, places, experiences or things that match the signal we’re transmitting.

They key here is to keep focused upon what you WANT not upon what you LACK.   I recently moved to live by the beach in a 365 Days of Gratitudesmall town.  I LOVE Japanese food and decided that it would be fun to manifest a Japanese restaurant here in my little corner of the world.  I focused on how much I LOVE Japanese food. The tastes, the textures, the simplicity. I imagined what the restaurant would look like, what the atmosphere would be like and how much enjoyment I would have eating there.

That was a month ago.  Two weeks ago, a Japanese restaurant opened just a 5 minute walk from my home.  It’s delicious – all I ever dreamed of and more.  (I posted about this on the Design Your Fabulous Future Facebook Page earlier today).

It’s very simple to apply the Law of Attraction to Designing Your Fabulous Future.  Just channel your thoughts and positive energy towards already experiencing the realisation of your goals.  Think about them often.  Start to feels as you would if you had already achieved them and amaze yourself with what happens.

A Girl with a Plan

In addition to channelling your thoughts and feelings towards your dreams, it’s time to create a plan to achieve them.  This is the middle layer between dreaming and taking action.  This step is all about identifying the tangible actions you can take to start building your future.

There are many ways to go about creating this plan.   One I especially love includes visualisation as well as conscious thought.  Here’s the process:

1.  Imagine that you’ve just achieved your goal.  Experience the sights, sounds and feelings associated with realising this dream.

2.  Next, ask yourself what was the last step that you took, just before you reached your goal?  What happened just before you knew that what you desired became a reality.  Write this step down in your journal or on a big, blank sheet of paper.

3.  Write down the step that came before that one and so on, so that you continue to answer this question until you’ve created a mini step-by-step guide for yourself of the actions that you can take to bring your dreams into reality.

In essence, it’s like creating a pathway of really clear stepping stones to take from where you are now to where you want to be.

Take Action

Fabulous future builders know that it isn’t enough to plan and dream.  We must take action too; it’s a key way to get what you want.  In the words of Maya Angelou “Nothing will work unless you do”

It might be scary, you may feel stuck, but you CAN do this.  To get started, begin with one item on your plan.  I find it really motivating to tick things off as I accomplish them, so I’ve got a really tangible view of my progress as it happens.  They all add up: even completing the tiniest task will bring you closer to living the life of your dreams.
