Teri Holland [00:00:00]:
Hello, brilliant minds, visionary leaders, and entrepreneurs. Welcome back to another episode of Success in Mind. Today, we're going to talk about the game changing concept of manifestation. We're gonna talk about what it takes to manifest what you truly want in life, and we're gonna talk about what so many people get wrong. You're listening to Success in Mind, the show for high performing leaders, change makers, and entrepreneurs ready to take your life and business to the next level. If you're ready for whole life success, keep listening. Manifestation. That word gets thrown around so often, but what does it actually mean? And most importantly, how can it help you change the game as an entrepreneur.
Teri Holland [00:00:51]:
How can it help you to get what it is you want? Manifestation, the idea of manifestation simply means to bring something from an idea, a concept, an inspiration, and to bring it all the way down into the physical world. So we're gonna talk about how do you do that today. We're gonna talk about how do you turn your dreams into reality. That's what station is, turning your dreams into reality, not just by wishful thinking, not just by meditating on it, but through a strategic alignment of your thoughts, your emotions, and your actions. So the first step to manifestation is clarity. You have to know what you want. You must know what you want. I see so many people in you know, when I'm in entrepreneur groups, when I'm out in the world just talking to people.
Teri Holland [00:01:46]:
I see this when my clients come to me is they're not happy with where they are, and I'll say, well, what do you want? And they have no idea. How can you have what you want? How are you ever going to get what want if you don't actually know what it is you want. So a lot of people get these 2 very mixed up. You know, I had a friend who said to me one day, she said, well, Teri, I just wanna I just wanna be successful. And I said, go do a crossword puzzle. And she laughed at me, and she said, like, what do you mean go do a crossword puzzle? That's not what I mean. I wanna be successful. And I said, well, if you go do a crossword puzzle and you Clea.
Teri Holland [00:02:24]:
You'll feel successful, so go do one. And she said, no, Teri. That's not what I mean. And I said, well, what do you mean? And she said, well, I just wanna be successful. And I said, so go ride your bike and go on a good bike ride. And at the end of it, you'll feel successful. And she said, no. That's not what I mean either.
Teri Holland [00:02:43]:
I said, well, then what do you mean? And she said, I don't know. I just wanna be successful. And I said until you know what that means to you, you are never going to have it. So that is the first thing. Your goals need to be specific. If you wanna manifest something in your life, you've gotta be specific about it. Goals or we call them outcomes in NLP, they are specific. You've gotta get specific.
Teri Holland [00:03:09]:
A value or a state that's ambiguous. You know, I wanna be successful. Okay. Well, you could feel successful right now. You can feel happy right now, you can feel prosperous right now, you can feel joyful right now, you can feel love right now. Those are all states. But that doesn't mean you're going to actually get what you want. So this friend kept saying, well, I just I just wanna be successful.
Teri Holland [00:03:33]:
And when we finally were able to drill it down, she wanted to own her home. She wanted to have a business that she felt really good about, and she wanted to have a certain amount of money in the bank at any given time. She wanted to have fluidity and ease around money, so there needed to be an abundant amount of money coming in that she felt really positive about it and never had to make life decisions based on what she could afford. So we got really clear and we got more specific than that, but that's, you know, to give you a general idea. You gotta know what you want. You have to know what it is that you're after in order to get it, goals. You can write down a goal, right? You'd write it as a goal, you would write it as what it is you want to achieve, what it is you're going to create in your life, the outcome that you're striving for, but a value or a state, those are affirmations. You know, if if you're saying to yourself if okay.
Teri Holland [00:04:34]:
If you are trying to manifest something in your life and you are saying to yourself, I am abundant. That is a state. That is a value. That's not what you're manifesting. And by the way, states and values are important, and they have an important role in helping us get what we want, but they are not the thing we want, so don't confuse the 2. Your states, you could have them right now. Right? Like I said, you could have it right now. You could feel happy now.
Teri Holland [00:05:03]:
You could feel joyful now. You could feel love right now. All you need to know is how to put yourself into that state, and you can have it right now. But with your goal, with the thing that you're trying to manifest, there's time involved. And the amount of time that will be involved is really determined by you, and we'll talk about time later in this episode, we'll talk about time. Actually, let's just talk about right now. So some people think, well, if I want to achieve this great thing in my life. It is going to take me a very, very long time, and it might it might take you a long time to do it, but there are ways that we can shorten time, that we can condense it, that we can fold time up neatly and achieve our goals a lot faster, and that's where the magic of manifestation comes in.
Teri Holland [00:05:58]:
And, well, everything we'll talk about this episode is gonna help you accelerate time in achieving your goals because who says it has to take a long time? If you believe that it has to take a long time to achieve your goals, then it will take a long time. If you believe that you could have your goals really quickly that you could have your outcome, what you want really quickly. You can have it really quickly, but you have to actually believe it. Let's put belief up on the shelf for now, though, we're gonna come back to what it is that you believe because beliefs play a major role in manifestation. What do you believe is true? Sticking with our states and goals. So in a state, there's no steps to achieving it. You wanna be happy, you can feel happy. You wanna feel successful, you can feel successful.
Teri Holland [00:06:44]:
There's no steps. But your goals or your outcomes, there's steps involved in achieving them. And a really great way to look at that is if you get the final step and you reverse engineer it, you work backwards. So if this is what I want, this is my end goal, that's where I wanna be, what what would I have to do in order to get there? What would the last thing I did be? What would I have done before that? So you get the last step, you work backwards. States are infinite. You can have as much happy as you want to have. You can have as much love, so as much abundance as you want to have. But your outcome, the thing that you're manifesting, your goal is measurable.
Teri Holland [00:07:25]:
So if you wanna manifest money in your life, that's measurable. We can measure how much money. We can count mon we can look in your bank account and see how much money is there and how much is coming in. The concept of money, however, or the concept of abundance. How do you it's infinite. There's an infinite an infinite supply. Your states are either stated for you or for others, but your outcomes, your goals, what you are manifesting in your life is only for you because you can't control somebody else, so this can't be for anyone else. And even if you're thinking, oh, but Teri, I want to make all this money because I want to provide a better quality of life, a better standard of life for my family, for my children, for my spouse, my partner.
Teri Holland [00:08:18]:
I want all of my employees, my team members to thrive, and so I really wanna do for them. That's really great, and that indicates your values, but your goals, your outcomes, what you are in charge of can only be for you. You can't set a goal for another person. You can't set an outcome for another so it has to be only for you. Okay. So you've got to know what you want. You have to know what it is that you want with clarity, and you've got to get specific about it. When people talk about money, money is a concept, by the way.
Teri Holland [00:08:55]:
People talk about, I wanna make more money. Well, how much money? And it is a good thing that we are having this conversation right now because as 2023 is winding down and you're looking forward to 2024. If you are thinking about, oh, I wanna make more money next year, debt specific, how much more? Do you want to hit $1,000,000 in revenue? How much do you wanna take home? How much is yours? Do you want to expand your business into new areas? Do you want to franchise out your business per perhaps? And how many franchise partners do you want? How many locations do you want? How are you going to expand and grow? Clients will come to me and they say, I wanna grow the business. Well, how specifically do you wanna grow it? Do you want to just make more revenue? Do you want to make more profit. How much more? Do you want to take on more team members? Is that what growth is for you right now. What does it mean to grow your business? So you need to know exactly what it is you want. You need to be absolutely clear about that. So once you are clear about it and you know, okay, this is what I want, the the next step is you have to start embodying the feeling that you already have it.
Teri Holland [00:10:17]:
Now this might sound a little, I don't know, a little woo woo, a little a little hokey, might sound like fantasy, but this is a powerful tool for aligning your unconscious mind with your goals. So this is all about creating a success oriented mindset. So you know what you want. Now you've gotta get clear on your feelings about it, and you need to feel. Tap into the feelings as if you already have it. Your unconscious mind is driven by feeling, and your unconscious mind is the goal getter, and your unconscious mind cannot distinguish between fantasy and reality. I'm gonna say that again. Your unconscious mind cannot distinguish between fantasy and reality.
Teri Holland [00:11:12]:
So if you act as if you've already achieved your goals, if you feel like you've already achieved your goals, your unconscious mind will relentlessly pursue and make happen what it is that you want because it already believes it's happened. So if you feel like a multimillionaire, it doesn't matter what the reality is right now if you feel like you are, if you can act like you are 1, then you are likely to begin to attract opportunities into your life to make you multimillionaire. A few weeks ago, I had Jeff Booner on the show, and he talked about this very thing that you're un he said, and I'll link that episode in the show notes because it's it ties right into what we're talking about today. He said in that episode that your unconscious mind already knows the business that's going to bring you $10,000,000 next year, but it's not gonna give you until you start acting and playing the part of the person who's going to do it. So you need to embody who that person is, and you can't bullshit yourself. This isn't about playing pretend. This is about really believing it. It's about fully embodying in mind, body, spirit, and emotionally.
Teri Holland [00:12:36]:
This is about embodying what it is that you already want so you can bring it into your life. And feelings are the key to doing to connecting with your unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind is driven by your emotions. Your unconscious mind is the domain of your emotions. So if you can put yourself in a really positive state where you're feeling great about what it is that you're manifesting in your life. And if you can act as if it's already there and you can feel like you already have it, then you'll be able to seek out the the patterns, the connections, the opportunities, the people into your life that can help you make it happen. So you know what you want, you're feeling great about it, you embody that feeling that you've already achieved it. Now what? Well, I'll share with you a technique that I've been using with many of my clients and it's something I've been using with myself and it's called the Visionary Scripting Method.
Teri Holland [00:13:38]:
So every morning, every single morning, spend a few minutes writing down your goals. Write them as if they've already happened, as if you've already achieved it. Describe your day. So don't write out what it is you're going to do. Write it out as if you've already done it. Describe your day. Describe your interactions, your business operations as if you've already achieved your goal. And at the same time get yourself into a state of gratitude that it's already happened.
Teri Holland [00:14:06]:
So you talk about your goals as if they've already happened. You write your goals as if they've already happened for that day, and this begins to bridge that gap between the reality you're experiencing and the future you're manifesting because your unconscious mind does not know the difference between fantasy or reality. So you write it as if it's already done. You don't write it as if today, I'm going to do this. Today, I'm planning on no. You write it as if today, I did this. Today, I sold x amount of dollars product. Write it as if it's already happened.
Teri Holland [00:14:45]:
Today, I crushed all of my sales calls. Today, I had a phenomenal workout, and you haven't even done it yet, but you're gonna write it as if it happened and embody that feeling. You know? So after you write it down, you want to embody the feeling of it, so write it down. I have a journal that I use. I do this every single morning now, and I write down what it is I want that day, but I write it as if it's already happened, and then I take some time to go inward into my mind, an I envision it. So the next step of this is you need to see it in your mind, visually rehearse it already done. See it as if it's already done in your mind. How that day, you know, put yourself forward into the future to the end of the day.
Teri Holland [00:15:34]:
Put yourself into that state that, yes, I accomplished all those things. Yes. I crushed my sales goals for the day. Yes, all my sales calls were phenomenal and amazing. All my clients got incredible results from our work today. I crushed that workout, and my body feels fantastic from it. I have lots of energy. I ate great today.
Teri Holland [00:15:55]:
I nourished my body with amazing food, I spent quality time with my spouse, I had a wonderful walk with my dogs, and you put yourself in that state that it's already happened and allow yourself to now feel grateful that it has happened. Feel good about it. Feel accomplished, feel excited, and appreciate what has happened. Now I know there are some skeptics out there that are listening to this and you're thinking, okay. Alright, Teri. So I'm gonna pretend I'm gonna write down that it's already happened, and then I'm gonna visualize this if it's app it, and I'll pretend that, okay, this has already happened. I did this. And then what's supposed to happen, like, the $1,000,000 falls out of the sky? I mean, maybe.
Teri Holland [00:16:44]:
Would you say no to that if it happened? Probably not. Maybe that happens that way. But listen. Probably, it's gonna take practice for you. And I'm not saying that you'll ever get to the point where $1,000,000 falls from the sky just because you've thought about it, visualized it, written it down, and showed some gratitude for it. I'm not gonna say that. If that ever happens for you, please tell me please tell me and tell me, exactly how you did it because I wanna duplicate those results. But what I'm saying is that now you are primed, your body, your mind, your spirit, your energy.
Teri Holland [00:17:19]:
You are primed to be able to recognize the opportunities as they arise to get it. So it might not happen exactly how you see it in your mind of $1,000,000 dropping from the sky. But what if it did? Be open to however it shows up in your life. Maybe how it actually shows up is somebody offers you an opportunity to speak on their podcast, and you recognize the opportunity and you go do it. And through that conversation, you get an influx of new clients over the next 2 years that brings you $1,000,000 of revenue that you wouldn't have had otherwise. I mean, would that be okay? I'd be cool with that. So it might you know, we've gotta stop thinking so linearly in that okay. So I'm gonna visualize this thing, and I'm gonna open my eyes, and there it is.
Teri Holland [00:18:10]:
I mean, maybe it'll be like that, but it might show up in an infinite number of ways, but you'll be able to recognize the opportunity to get it, to achieve it, to have it because your body, your mind, your spirit are primed to connect with it. Listen. Everything that you want, everything that you're desiring in your life, how you want your life to be, exists as potential out there in the universal field. It exists already. And what stops us from getting it is that our mind, our thoughts, our emotions, the body is not aligned with what it is we want, so we just keep missing it. It you can't even see that it's in front of you, and it can literally be right in front of you, and you can't see it because it's not in your awareness. Let's talk about the real secret of the law of attraction. The law of attraction in and of itself is incomplete, and in fact, it's only 1 of 12 universal laws, and all of those laws have a place and an importance.
Teri Holland [00:19:24]:
And in fact, I'm thinking about in the new year doing a series where each week, we'll talk about one of those universal laws. If you if you like that idea, drop me a message on Instagram. Let me know. Say yes, Teri. I am down for that, and I will do a series on the universal laws. But the universal law of attraction, that's the one that most people are familiar with. The secret, the movie The Secret came out, the DVD, the the book. That's the one that people are most familiar with, which by the way, it's not even the most important one in terms of manifestation, but it's the one that most people know about.
Teri Holland [00:20:02]:
The law of attraction in and of itself is incomplete, and the secret was it complete? And the real secret behind the law of attraction is hidden in the word attraction, it's action. You have to take action. Manifestation isn't just about thinking, it's about doing. Your actions need to mirror your goals. You need to meet intention with action. So if you want to attract high value clients in your business, you need to start networking and positioning your business in the environments where you can meet high valued clients. If you want to be a thought leader in your industry, you need to start sharing and creating insightful content that demonstrates that you are a thought leader in your industry. If you want to be the expert at something, you need to start doing the activities that are gonna make you an expert.
Teri Holland [00:20:51]:
You need to read all the books. You need to spend time every day working on your craft. You know, I coach speakers in my business, and I am shocked by how many speakers come to me, and they're like, I wanna have speaking business. I wanna be speaking on stages, and I tell them what to do, and they don't do it. They don't take the action. And then they go, Teri, I'm still not getting any speaking work. Well, are you doing the things that are gonna either work, probably not, or, you know, when I work with podcast clients and I say, this is how you launch a podcast, and I lay it out for them. And then 6 months later, a year later, 2 years later, they still haven't launched a podcast, and they're like, oh, I'm still working on it.
Teri Holland [00:21:30]:
No. You're not. You can launch a podcast in 5 days. You can do it in 3 days. I launched mine in less than 3 days. You can do it in 3 days. It does not take a month. It does not take 6 months.
Teri Holland [00:21:42]:
It does not take 5 years to launch a podcast. You could do it in if you are really ambitious, you could have one out tomorrow. So you need to take action. By the way if you are thinking about launching a podcast in 2024, click the link in the show notes because I have an offer for you. My launch your podcast 5 day challenge is coming back for January. And this month, it's my birthday. And so for my birthday, I am offering it. If you sign up in the month of December, you are going to save some money on it.
Teri Holland [00:22:15]:
So click that link if you wanna launch your podcast, and you want my help in launching your podcast in January. Okay. Back to manifestation. That was my little plug for the 5 Day Launch Your Podcast Challenge. So if you want to be something, you need to take action to do it. If you wanna be a writer, you need to write. If you wanna be a runner, you need to run. If you wanna be a singer, you need to practice singing.
Teri Holland [00:22:38]:
If you want to juggle, you need to actually pick up the balls and juggle. We live in a physical world. We can't escape the fact that the world is physical. And sometimes, I'm telling you, you get really good at manifestation. You get your thoughts and your emotions in line with what it is that you want, and it will feel like magic appearing, but you still have to do something to get it. Here's an example from just a year ago. I got into my mind. I had this idea that I wanted a new wool winter coat, like a camel color, long winter coat.
Teri Holland [00:23:14]:
I just I had this idea of what it would look like, and I want it to be warm and, you know, kind of like like I didn't want it fitted. I want it kinda oversized, and I wanted a beautiful camel coat. The problem or the challenge is that I didn't wanna spend a lot of money because I have been in the process of losing weight. I've so far lost £40 since then. And I knew that whatever coat I bought for last winter would probably be too big by the time we got to this winter. So I didn't wanna spend a lot of money on 1 because I thought I I don't like to waste money. I'm all for treating myself, and I'm very comfortable spending money, but I do not like to waste money. And I felt like I want a good quality coat.
Teri Holland [00:24:04]:
So I want something that's higher quality, higher end, and looks great, but I don't wanna spend a lot, so I need to find a really good deal because I don't wanna spend a lot of money on something and then next year be giving it away. And I wanna wear it for a few years. I wanna and I wanted a classic style that I could get a lot of use out of. So I'd look online once in a while, you know, and I was looking looking online, looking on online stores, getting an idea of the style and stuff I wanted, but I wasn't seeing I was either seeing ones that were very affordable, you know, cheap on sale, but they also looked cheap, and they weren't well made, and they weren't great material. Or is finding ones that were perfect, but they were more than I wanted to spend. So I wasn't finding 1. And then one day, my husband said, hey. Do you wanna go to Winners? I'm I'm wanna go look for some stuff there.
Teri Holland [00:24:57]:
He loves shopping there. I hate shopping there because I really hate sorting through the the racks. I I hate that. It's cluttered. I'm a very visual person. I can't easily see what I want. I hate shopping there. He loves it.
Teri Holland [00:25:11]:
He loves, like, going through all the things and finding something really great, like a hidden gem. That's it's fun for him. So I was like, yeah, I'll go with you. Sure. So we go there, and he's looking for clothes. And I was like, I'm just gonna take a walk around. And and I turned a corner, and they're just hanging off the end of a rack. It wasn't even meant to be there.
Teri Holland [00:25:31]:
It wasn't in the coat section. It was, I think, in, like, raw like the dress shirts were. Just hanging on the end like someone had just left it there in a hanger was a beautiful camel wool coat. And I saw it, and I was like, that's that's what I want. And I walked up to it. I looked at the size. It was my size. I looked at the price tag, and it was $70.
Teri Holland [00:25:56]:
$70. I was like, this is a perfect price. This looks great. Does it look good on me? I put it on, and it fit perfectly like it was made for me. Perfect beautiful coat. Exactly what I wanted and a designer label. I took it I bought it, took it home, looked it up online because I was curious, like, what does this thing sell for? It retails for 700 US. I'm Canadian, so Canadian dollar is probably about $900.
Teri Holland [00:26:25]:
It was perfect. It was exactly what I wanted. I wouldn't have got the coat if, one, if I wasn't clear on what I wanted, if I wasn't specific about what I wanted, if I didn't take the opportunity when Greg said, hey. Do you wanna go to Winners? If I said, no. I hate Winners. I don't wanna go there. But something in my unconscious mind went, hey. Hey.
Teri Holland [00:26:49]:
Hey. You should go. You should go there. So I went with him. And if I didn't go walk around the store and if I my mind wasn't already tuned into what I wanted. I went to seen it there. So I saw exactly what I wanted. So it can often feel like like, it doesn't feel I didn't have to do a lot for it.
Teri Holland [00:27:09]:
Right? I didn't have to do it I didn't have to climb Mount Everest to get it, but I had to do something to get it, and I had to know what I wanted. So you need to take action towards what you want. You have to play your part in this game. So here's what manifestation actually is because, by the way, you've been doing it your whole life. You know this process. You have been doing it your whole life. But the problem is is if we're manifesting things unconsciously, meaning we're not consciously aware of what we're doing, meaning we're not consciously aware of what we're doing. You will most likely manifest things you don't want.
Teri Holland [00:27:48]:
You'll create the life you don't really want. Your unconscious mind is wired to take the path of least resistance. I don't know if you know that, your unconscious mind will always take the easy thing. And often, the life that we really want is not the easy thing. So if you just leave it to chance, you're like a leaf blowing in the wind. You'll end up somewhere. Right, the wind will pick you up and toss you somewhere, and maybe you land somewhere really cool. Maybe that leaf maybe your leaf lands on a pile of dog shit, and you have no control over it.
Teri Holland [00:28:21]:
You're just leaving it to chance, leaving it to the wind to blow, and you end up going in whatever direction the wind blows. So you've been manifesting your entire life. You have been creating your life until this point, but if you're doing it unconsciously, you you might be creating what you don't want, and you're doing that based on your fears, your doubts, your limiting beliefs about who you are and what you can achieve, other negative emotions, shame, guilt, hurt, regret, sadness, anger, frustration. All of those things will lead you down a path you don't wanna go in, but manifesting the way we want to manifest. So manifesting in a way that you can create your life the way you want it requires your full attention, your awareness for you to be present in your life, and to take action. So here's how it actually works. You get inspired by something. You have an idea.
Teri Holland [00:29:19]:
Right? I got inspired. I had an idea. I wanted a new coach. Then you need to think about it. So it starts in the spiritual realm that's the inspiration and then it comes down to the mental plane. So you think about what it is you want. You know? You get specific. You gotta get specific.
Teri Holland [00:29:39]:
What is it you want? How much money do you want, what color coat do you want, what what is it specifically that you want. You need to think about it. You need to get a really clear picture in your mind of exactly how it's gonna be, how it is how you want it, how you want it to be. And then it moves down into the unconscious mind, which is the the emotional PLAYING. So how do you feel about it? And you gotta get you gotta feel like you already have and get all those really positive, excited, grateful, joyful, loving feelings about it, feeling really good, really positive, feeling like you already have it, and then you have to bring it all the way down into the physical world because we live in a physical existence and do something to make it happen. You need to show up at the store. You need to pay for it. You know, I wouldn't have the coat if I wasn't willing to pay.
Teri Holland [00:30:35]:
That's part of me taking action. I had I had to take the coat up to the cashier and had to pay for it. That's action. So you need to play your part, you need to meet intention with action. Where a lot of people get stuck is they get inspired. Maybe they spend some time thinking about it, maybe they even meditate on it, get really clear on what it's gonna be, clean up their feelings about it. They feel really good. They might even be able to get themselves to a state where they feel like they already have it and then they never show up.
Teri Holland [00:31:09]:
They don't show up and actually do it. You need to show up for yourself and put yourself in the position where you can get it. And I'll tell you this, taking action is so much easier when your thoughts, your emotions and your body are all in alignment with what you want. So when you are already primed to get it, it's it's easy. It becomes easy. When taking action is not easy is when you haven't done the rest of the work. You haven't been clear on what you want. You haven't dealt with your emotions about it.
Teri Holland [00:31:40]:
You're still feeling fearful or anxious about it, nervous, queasy, shameful for for even thinking that you want then taking action is gonna be hard. That's when it feels like it's an uphill battle, and you're never getting anywhere. Okay. Now let's address the elephant in the room, challenges and setbacks. So how do you maintain your manifestation mindset when things get tough and they will get tough? And the key here is tenacity and perspective. Every challenge is an opportunity to learn and to pivot closer to your goal. So manifestation, it's a journey, my friends. It is not a single one time event.
Teri Holland [00:32:30]:
So every time you're faced with a challenge or an opportunity, this is just another way of you learning what works, what doesn't work. Maybe you need to get more clear. Maybe you need to be more specific. Maybe you're not really in alignment with it. Maybe you still have some doubts you're carrying around. Whatever it is that you want, whatever it is that you're manifesting, you will have challenges on the road to achieving it. That's part of the process. There's that old proverb that says that the obstacle is the path.
Teri Holland [00:33:02]:
It's not there to deter you and send you away. It's not there to stop you. It is the path, and maybe you've experienced this before. I know I have many times is that when you are faced with an obstacle, whatever it takes for you to get through it, to go around it, to go over it, whatever it is that that transformation process because you will transform through this process. And that obstacle, that challenge, the thing, the barrier that's in your way, whatever you have to do to overcome it, get around it, get through it, shapes you into the person who gets the thing that you want on the other side. The obstacle is the path, so don't be deterred by closing challenges. Don't be deterred because when you get to the other side, you'll see that that was always the way forward. You know, let me tell you another story about a client.
Teri Holland [00:34:03]:
So I had this client, and we'll call her let's call her Meghan. Meghan was running a small social media marketing firm, and she was struggling to get bigger clients and consistent clients in her business, so we worked on a manifestation strategy. And she did all these steps that we're talking about today. She started each day with visionary scripting. We aligned her actions with her goals, what it is she wanted to achieve, and she faced all of her challenges head on. Within a year, not only had she broken into larger markets and found higher value clients, but she'd become a sought after name in her industry, and I have seen this happen with so many clients. So if you're thinking this will never happen for me, this doesn't work, this doesn't work, it absolutely does work, and I've seen at work over and over and over again. It's worked in my life.
Teri Holland [00:34:59]:
It's worked for clients. It'll work in your life too. You know, as entrepreneurs, our greatest asset is our mindset and manifestation when we intentionally manifest, because remember, you you're already doing it. You're just manifesting things maybe you don't want, but intentional manifestation leverages the power of your mind to its fullest. So if you want to develop your mind, if you want to become you know, if you wanna become unstoppable, if you wanna become a force, this is what getting really good at manifesting and creating the life that you want. This is this is the greatest personal development, journey you will ever be on. It's all about clarity, getting really clear what you want, aligning your emotions, aligning your physical actions, and being resilient, having tenacity in the face of challenge. It's about believing in your vision and believing in yourself so strongly that the universe can't help but align with you.
Teri Holland [00:36:05]:
You know, another little story. I'll I'll share this one with you, and then I promise I'll wrap this up. My dog, Dutch, who you may have just heard barking a few minutes ago, you might have heard him bark a few times on this episode, that's Dutch. He's a year and a half. Dutch is a Nova Scotia duck toller. He is bred it is it is within him to toll ducks. That is that is what his lineage has been bred for. Where it is in his DNA to do this.
Teri Holland [00:36:35]:
When he sees a bird, he lights up like a Christmas tree. He is so excited, and his only mission when he sees a bird is get the bird. He's never going to catch the bird, guys. He's never gonna catch it, but he doesn't know that. And I'm not limiting him, by the way. He's never gonna catch the bird because one, birds fly. They fly away. Every single time, they fly away.
Teri Holland [00:37:00]:
And 2, he's always on a leash, so he can't catch the bird. Maybe if we took him to the dog park and a bird happened to foolishly land in the middle of a dog park and, I don't know, had an injured wing and couldn't fly, maybe then he'd catch the bird. But unless those things align, he's not catching the bird, but he believes he will. And he will pursue that bird. He will pull to the end of his leash. Oh, man. I just realized I shouldn't be telling you guys this story because you're probably thinking, what an untrained dog. What a terrible dog owner.
Teri Holland [00:37:31]:
But he's a very good boy and a very trained dog, and he does listen. Except when he sees a bird, it's like that that DNA gets activated, and he just wants the bird. Now if he was put in the right environment with the right training and skills to do his job of duck tolling, he could get the bird, but my husband and I are not hunters. We're not going duck hunting. So he's not gonna get the bird, but he believes in himself so strongly. He believes he will catch that bird. I have seen him try to run down eagles, bald eagles. He's never gonna catch 1, but he believes in his heart and in his with every fiber of his being, he believes he's who's gonna catch that bird.
Teri Holland [00:38:13]:
You need to be like Dutch when it comes to pursuing your goals. You need to be like Dutch and believe that no matter what, you can get that bird and go out and get your bird. So I hope today's episode inspires you to embrace the power that you have within you. Remember that your thoughts and your actions have immense power. Use them wisely. Use them to pursue what it is you really want in life. And unlike Dutch, know that you do have the resources and the tools to get it. So until next week on Success in Mind, keep manifesting your dreams into reality.
