[Goal Setting Series]Article #10 ~ Everything You Need to Manifest Your Goal

Over the past several months, I've shown you how to set goals that utilize the power of the Universe. In this final article of the series, I'm giving you all of the main steps again to get you started on changing your life.

Here are those 10 crucial steps:

1. Remove Time from the Equation

To move past the human barriers that prevent you from having what you truly desire, you must first remove any timeframes from your goal.

Timeframes on a goal are usually based on what people think is possible. You may not know how your goal could manifest quickly, but the Universe might.

Let the Universe set the timing ~ and then you may be amazed by how quickly your goal manifests.

2. Go Beyond What You Think You Can Do

Again, most people set goals based upon what they think they can accomplish ~ not on what they truly desire or what they're actually capable of doing.

To begin to tap your limitless potential, let yourself fantasize.

Fantasy literally changes your brain's frequency, making it more receptive to ideas, desire and purpose from your soul.

It's truly the best way to discover what you really want. And it's crucial for receiving that prosperous idea that can take you light years from where you are today.

3. Receive Your Million-Dollar Idea

If you already experience the power of fantasizing, go to the place or do the thing that works for you.

If you don't know what that is, find a place that's beautiful and calming. Get comfortable and let your eyes rest. Don't “try” to fantasize, just relax and let your mind be free.

As images or feelings start to arise, ask yourself what you want, and then write down whatever comes to mind.

If this process doesn't work for you, try “catching” yourself fantasizing ~ in the shower is a likely place ~ and record what you see, hear or feel.

4. Are You Able and Willing?

To turn your fantasy into reality, you have to be able to say yes to these two questions:

“Am I able?” You've gone beyond what you thought you could do. Now, you need to muster the faith to believe in your ability to manifest your million-dollar idea. Do you feel excited? That's your gut saying YES, you're able.

“Am I willing?” Are you willing to do what must be done to manifest your goal? For example, move if necessary, invest financially in yourself, commit to living a new life?

5. Create an Environment to Support Your Goal

Once you declare that you are able and willing, it's vital that your environment begins to reflect your aspiration back to you on a daily basis.

To accomplish that, make two lists. The first is of the things, people and ideas that are not in harmony with your goal and should be removed from your life. The second is of those things that must come into your life to support your goal.

Once you make the lists, start acting on them immediately.

6. Make a Binding Commitment

Now it's time to commit yourself to your goal. In the present tense, write out your goal and sign and date the page. For example: “I commit to having a $10 million-dollar-a-year business.”

Remember, don't include any timeframes.

Then, make a goal card to carry with you and read several times a day to remind you that, according to Universal Law, your goal is already here.

On another piece of paper or index card, write: “I'm so happy and grateful now that ___________,” and write in your goal.

7. Get Attached

To start moving your idea from the nonphysical to the physical, you need to become emotionally involved in it.

Emotions are like the engines behind our thoughts. They give energy to your goal, sending it through time and space, prompting the Universe to start bringing you what you need to manifest it.

8. Raise Your Awareness

When you raise your awareness to the level of your goal, what you want shows up. It's yours.

To raise your level of awareness, you first have to know your current awareness and results.

Your current awareness is the closest you've ever come to your goal. If you have a money goal, it would be the most money you, alone, have ever earned in a year.

Your current results would be what you are earning this year.

Once you know those two figures, you know where you are, and all you have to do is make a firm decision to go to the next level of awareness, and then expect the opportunity to do that to show up.

9. Change, Adapt, Grow

Picture yourself at the bottom of a staircase with your goal at the top. The Universe has heard that you are ready and will meet you on the first stair with your opportunity.

Step up and into it. Make the change, adapt to the change and grow into that bigger version of yourself.

Then the Universe will meet you on the second stair with another opportunity that requires you to change, adapt and grow still larger than before.

You follow this same process all the way to your goal.

10. Cut Through the Chaos

Now, your subconscious will resist all this change and growth, and you may experience some chaos as the universe rearranges your life so that you can reach your goal.

Just remember that the upheaval is temporary while your goal is the ultimate prize.

To cut through the chaos, stay connected to the higher side of yourself. Follow the Seven Secrets of Multimillionaire Entrepreneurs: desire, decision, belief and faith in a higher power, love, responsibility, will and action.

They will deliver you to your goal.

Get Started

There is no limit to what you can achieve or be.

If you do each of these steps with unwavering commitment, you truly can have anything you desire.

You can create absolutely magnificent and astonishing things.

  1. Hi David,
    Loved your 10 steps. The one thing that stood out for me was to drop the timeline for my dreams to happen. Then I ordered your book on Amazon last night so looking forward to it arriving soon! And interestingly I got clarity when I woke up this morning on how I can use my own story and journey to help others with their breakthroughs. I will keep you posted and I would love to go to your event in Dallas. Lets see how the universe will arrange that for me!


  2. Great advice on goal setting!

    You may want to check out GoalsOnTrack.com, a very nicely built web app designed for tracking goals, habits, and todo lists, and supports time tracking too. It’s clear, focused, easy to navigate, and most of all, really works!

    • Thanks for the post Harry. We all have our ways of keeping track of our goals, the key is to set them in the first place and take committed action toward them. I look forward to hearing more.

  3. Hello David! I always thought a date was added to goals……So I happily dropped the dates and wrote the gola on index card as you suggested. I have also ordered your book today and look forward to enjoyin and applying the learning.


    • Thanks for the comment Jasianna. Remove time from the equation and stay committed to doing what is necessary to achieve what you want. I can’t wait to hear back.

  4. Interesting steps, David. Could you elaborate more on number 1? I’ve always felt that the time-frame would keep me motivated, as well give a logical point for me to reflect and reassess my goals if need be. So its interesting to see the opposite on your list. Any ideas for staying motivated without a time frame?

    • Sure Jan. What you need to understand is that time is nothing more than an illusion we create. Our society places heavy emphasis on time, and we get sucked in very easily. If you are a deadline person, ask yourself why that is such a motivating factor for you. Chances are that by removing time entirely from the situation you’d achieve your goal that much quicker. Try it and see what the results are.

      • I suppose I like having the timeline because, without it, I feel like I’m not accomplishing as much. Especially when I don’t make that deadline I’ve set. But I often feel that the “chaos” you mentioned sets in right in my time frame! Isn’t that always the way? Maybe removing the deadline will help in more ways than one…

        • I’d give it a try Jan. Deadlines are very important, don’t get me wrong. I just get the feeling that you need to look at things differently in order to get a different result. Keep me posted.
