One of the biggest mistakes you can make in trying to manifest your desire is to only have a vague idea of what you want.

You truly deserve to have anything you want in life, it does not matter what it is. But if you only know generally what you desire, and you have not really fleshed it out in any detail, you have to take the time to build the mental images.

Plus you have to truly believe that anything you want is possible. Don't limit your vision of your future. Dream big and know that you are worthy of receiving it.

Even though you have some great ideas, when you fail to clearly define what you want, you will not stay on track.

This results in lost time, energy and money. Plus you still will not have what you want.

So where do we start? You need to define what you want specifically, specific amounts, specific time frames, specific details. Have you drilled down to the exact thing you want?

To clearly define exactly what you want you have to get past the superficial wants like lots of money and get to the why behind why you want it.

What will that money do for you? How will it take care of you, your family or loved ones? What would your life be like if you did not have to worry about money? Where would you be? Who would you be with? What would you be doing?

It also needs to feel real to you, and align with your core values. Can you picture it in your mind and feel yourself there?

How do you really want to live? What do you really want to do? These are tough questions, but if you don't ask them of yourself you will be living someone else's dream.

The task of defining what you really want is yours and yours alone. No one else can determine it for you. Steer clear of doing things because someone else wants you to. You have to be true to yourself.

Another key is to keep your goals where you can see them. We need to be reminded of what we really want during all the distractions of our day. This is where a vision board comes in. Gather pictures, quotes, brochures, or trinkets. Arrange them on your vision board as a constant reminder of where your life is going.

As you look over your vision board, imagine yourself already there. See yourself through your minds eye living the life of your dreams. Do this several times a day until the images are etched in your mind. Then, as you go through your day, feel the contentment of already having what you want.

It is the feelings and emotions that you have about what you see on your vision board that makes all the difference. You have to find a way to mentally live all you dream about before it is yours.

Don't just see it from the outside, see your life as if you are living it. How would it look to you through your eyes? How would it feel in your hands? What are the smells you smell, the sounds you hear?

It is as if you are living inside your own movie. Only this movie can bring to you everything - once you clearly define what you want.
