One of the keys to manifesting what you want with the Law of Attraction is to ignore what you see in front of you and focus instead on what you are creating.

The more you can do this the faster your reality will morph from what it is today to what you want it to be.  But I know this is sometimes easier said than done.  It can be hard to imagine being a millionaire for instance if you're looking for change to buy groceries.  So how make that shift from where you are right now to where you want to be? 

First realize that it's ok to daydream!  Yes I know that back in elementary school daydreaming was frowned upon.  And even today your boss may not appreciate you staring off into the clouds for hours on end.  But little daydream breaks can pay off big time when you're manifesting a new reality.  When you day dream you are creating a mental picture of your new reality which reinforces the order you sent out to the Universe.  And further, as you daydream your brain actually begins to form synapses which favor the new reality and make it more real to you.  

So take a few minutes each day (or even each hour) and daydream a little. You can day dream while in the bathroom, waiting for the copier, sitting at a red light, while the commercials are on TV, before you get out of bed in the morning, waiting in line at the drive thru, while you're listening to the music on hold......the possibilities are endless!  In fact, if you can carve out 30 seconds to a minute several times a day you'll be doing well.

Along with daydreaming, telling yourself stories about how life will be is a great way to get from here to there. Stories are like day dreams except with words.   The way to do it is to narrate as if you're already there, telling the story of today like it's in the past tense.  And example is:

Wow now that I'm a millionaire I can hardly believe that not so long ago I couldn't even afford to order off the value menu!  I've come such a long way.  I still remember when I got that first big break and almost didn't take it because I believed it was too big to be true.  Looking back it was so obvious but then it seemed like an impossible dream.  I'm really glad I kept at it though, and now I know that it happened much quicker and more easily than I thought it would.

Another way to do this is tell your story as if you're telling someone else how to do what you did:

Yeah I know it seems like you'll never make that first million.  I felt that way too.  But what I did was follow my inner guidance, work a plan and little by little I began seeing results.  I made that first dollar and then the first 10 and when I made the first 1,000 I thought I'd arrived.  Yeah I had set backs and it didn't always go smoothly but little by little I got there and you can too.  You just have to keep at it.

Finally, take a moment to look back every once in a while.  You may be traveling at a snail's pace but even a snail covers a fair amount of ground over time.  You're a lot farther along than you were a month or 6 months ago.  So pat yourself on the back, give yourself credit for your accomplishments, and then turn your sights forward once again!
