    Following Your Dreams

    Click here to skip straight to the quotes.

    I knew when I was seven years old that I wanted to be an author when I grew up. But the road to get there wasn’t linear. After several fiction novel manuscript rejections, I spent years on the sidelines, watching other writers succeed, immersed in limiting beliefs that I wasn’t talented enough, not good enough, and that nobody would ever want to read anything I wrote.

    I feared that if I put myself out there again, I’d keep getting rejected. I wanted so badly to be a real writer, but fear kept me from going after my dream.

    And I have so much love in my heart for that girl sitting on the sidelines. I know her fear and her pain. She wanted so badly for just one person to reach out and give her permission to enter the game. To tell her that these dreams were put in her heart for a reason and that she was worthy of living the life of her dreams.

    But one day, I realized that the person I was waiting for all along—was me.

    My entire life changed when I stopped waiting for permission from someone else to step off the sidelines and instead received it from the only person whose permission mattered: myself.

    I’m a published author now, and I get to spend my life doing what I love most. But the truth is, I was never “discovered.” Nobody offered me a helping hand and showed me the way. And there were many, many times when I wasn’t sure this would ever work after me.

    But ultimately, I knew that even if I failed, that would be better than never trying at all.

    And that’s what I want you to know, especially if you have a dream in your heart but are hesitant to step forward and follow it.

    You don’t need permission to step out into the world.

    You just need to know that you are worthy of every single dream that’s been planted in your heart.

    All it takes is one tiny moment of courage to take that first step. Then, when you step back and allow life to flow through you, you’ll see how the universe is giving you everything you need to succeed. It will lead you down the right path, one courageous step at a time.

    You have an incredible gift to offer this world. And the only permission you need to step off the sidelines and into the world is your own. And you are worthy. Unconditionally. Infinitely. Always.

    Below, you’ll find 26 inspirational quotes for believing in, trusting, and following your dreams. These are some of my favorite quotes that have given me a little extra loving push on my own journey, and I hope they can do the same for you.

    New Year’s Resolutions

    “I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. They never work. Haven’t you heard that most people quit their resolutions by the end of January?”

    Have you ever heard anyone say these words? Or maybe you’ve said them yourself. To be honest, I’m sure a version of my younger self once echoed these familiar words that I’d heard countless times before.

    Now though, I’m not such a big fan of them.

    Sure, maybe many people do quit their resolutions early on in the year.

    But you?

    You’re not everyone.

    And what other people do with their own resolutions has absolutely nothing to do with you.

    And furthermore – sometimes, letting go of a resolution you made weeks or months ago doesn’t automatically equal failure.

    For instance, you might realize that your chosen resolution doesn’t actually support your highest good. This happened to me a couple years ago, when I decided for my resolution that I was going to run my second full marathon. At the time, it seemed like a worthwhile goal for the year ahead.

    But as I started making training plans, I started to feel like my heart wasn’t truly in it.

    I realized that the time I’d have to dedicate to running would take away from hiking, cycling, yoga, and the other physical activities I enjoyed. I had only set this resolution because it felt like something I should do.

    But it didn’t actually align with what was in my heart.

    So I let go of that resolution and instead chose the path that felt right to me at the time.

    And I have zero regrets about that decision.

    Another argument people often have against New Year’s resolutions is that we should be able to make resolutions any time of the year. And I one hundred percent agree with this statement.

    But why can’t we do both?

    I think it’s fair to let yourself make and change your resolutions throughout the year while also embracing the new year as a time for new beginnings.

    Finally, it’s important to define what a New Year’s resolution really is. It doesn’t always have to be a quantifiable goal.

    Here are some New Year’s resolutions that you can’t quantify, but they all support your overall well-being:

    • To make more time for self-care
    • To be more compassionate with yourself
    • To make space for fun and play
    • To embrace your limitless creativity
    • To spend more time with the people you love
    • To open yourself up to opportunities for more self-love.

    So as you think about how you want to step into the new year, know that you don’t have to make some really big proclamation about all the monumental life changes you’re going to make. Sometimes, simply stating that you’re going to make more time for self-care or for creative activities is more than enough to support you on your life journey.

    Below, you’ll find 25 new year reflection questions that will help you approach the new year with a vision for who you want to be and what you want to accomplish. The first ten questions are focused on reflecting on this past year, and the rest of the questions are all about setting goals and intentions for this upcoming year.

    And remember, while this post is geared toward the new year, I’d definitely encourage you to come back to these questions as often as you want throughout the year to see how your answers change. (And know that if your resolutions do change, that’s okay – as long as they feel true and right to you.)

    New Year Reflection Questions

    Morning Affirmations

    How do you speak to yourself in the morning? What thoughts run through your mind as you’re getting ready for the day? When your mind wanders, where does it go?

    And most importantly, do you use your energy to lift yourself up or tear yourself down?

    For many of us, we spend our mornings replaying events of the past or worrying about the future. We run through our to-do lists. We wonder if we’ll have enough time to squeeze in everything we need to get done for the day.

    These thoughts are normal, and you definitely shouldn’t judge yourself if you find yourself always returning to stressful, worrying thoughts in the morning.

    But you also have the power to change this narrative.

    You have the power to choose your thoughts. To decide how you want to feel as you get ready for the day ahead.

    Your morning sets the foundation for next 12 to 24 hours. This is when you can consciously direct your energy and create a mindset that feels truly uplifting and empowering.

    And incorporating positive affirmations into your morning routine can have a profound effect on how the rest of your day unfolds. By repeating these empowering words, you lift your vibration and create a positive energy field within and around you. In turn, you open yourself up to receiving even more beautiful experiences throughout your day.

    What makes affirmations such a powerful tool in the morning is that they can uplift your mindset without taking any additional time out of your day. This is great if you don’t have a lot of extra time before you need to head out the door.

    The key here is being willing to notice how you’re speaking to yourself in the privacy of your own mind, then intentionally directing your thoughts to a better-feeling place.

    Below, you’ll find 35 epic morning affirmations to uplift, inspire, and help you to create a beautiful day. Use these affirmations to cultivate a positive mindset filled with confidence, strength, and inner peace.

    And remember: you control your thoughts. You control how you get to feel. Your emotions, beliefs, and how you show up for each new day is entirely up to you.

    How To Use Affirmations In The Morning

    Before you dive into the affirmations, here are a few suggestions for how you can add affirmations into your morning routine:

    • Write down some of your favorite uplifting affirmations on post-it notes and stick them to your mirror to read as you get ready for your day
    • Repeat affirmations to yourself while you’re in the shower, getting dressed, and eating breakfast
    • Write down 3 empowering affirmations each morning in a journal or notebook; continue to repeat these affirmations throughout your day
    • Set up phone notifications to go off throughout your morning with positive affirmations written on them. Commit to reading each one. You might even set it so that the first one goes off with your alarm so it’s the very first thing you see before you begin your day.

    Manifestation Morning Routine Components

    Positive Affirmations

    A positive affirmation is a present-tense affirming statement that’s designed to boost your self-belief and support your overall well-being: mind, body, and soul.

    Here are a few examples:

    • I am worthy.
    • I am enough.
    • I am competent, capable, and strong.
    • I am equipped with all the tools I need to succeed.
    • I am true to myself, always.
    • I accept all of myself.
    • Who I am, exactly as I am, is truly beautiful.

    Affirmations are great because there are so many ways you can incorporate them into your morning routine, and they’re especially versatile if you’re pressed for time.

    You can write some of your favorite uplifting affirmations on post-it notes and stick them to your mirror to read as you get ready for your day.

    You can also write them in a bullet journal or on a notepad.

    And if you don’t want to write them down, you can silently repeat them to yourself as you’re eating breakfast.

    And finally, you can even set them up as notifications on your phone to pop up just when you need them in the morning.

    Positive affirmations are the cornerstone of a well-rounded manifestation morning routine, as they’re a quick and easy way to lift your vibrations and align you with your desired emotions without taking any time at all.


    My favorite way to describe visualization is intentional daydreaming. You might also consider it daydreaming on purpose.

    In manifestation, visualization allows you to simulate the experience of already having your desires in the present moment. This is a profound practice to help you get clear about what you want and begin vibrating at the frequency of your desires today.

    So why should you include visualization in your morning routine?

    Among other benefits, visualization increases your motivation, helps you to become more mentally resilient, opens your creative mind to previously unseen possibilities, and helps you to vibrate at the frequency of your desires, thus activating the Law of Attraction. (You can read more about the benefits of visualization in this article.)

    If you’re new to visualization practices, one of the best ways to start is by using a guided meditation. You can find some of my favorite guided meditations for manifesting here. I personally use the InsightTimer app for all of my guided meditations. (That’s not an affiliate link. I just truly love this app and recommend it wholeheartedly.)

    You can also spend a few minutes looking at your vision board and immersing yourself in the positive feelings of having your desires today.

    For instance, if a brand new Tesla is on your list, imagine yourself driving that Tesla. Feel the smooth steering wheel beneath your fingers. Imagine how good it’ll feel when you’re driving that car on the freeway. See if you can spend at least 30 to 60 seconds focusing on each item on your board.


    Gratitude is another practice that can take as much or as little time as you want.

    Many people set the intention to focus on gratitude as soon as they wake up in the morning:

    “Thank you for another new day and for the air in my lungs. Thank you for my beating heart. For my safe home. For a restful night’s sleep. Thank you for all the love that’s within and all around me.”

    This is an incredibly powerful practice. How many times have you woken up and immediately started clicking through mental to-do lists, feeling stressed and anxious about all that needs to get done?

    Gratitude is a way to shift that narrative.

    It’s about being in the present moment rather than living in the past or worrying about the future.

    And even more, it’s about focusing on all that you have rather than seeing big gaping holes of lack everywhere you look.

    Here are a few ways you can incorporate gratitude into your morning routine:

    • Create gratitude lists. Every morning, list 1 to 3 things you feel grateful for that day. If you want, you can get a special notebook for this purpose; you can also used lined paper, notecards, sticky notes, or whatever you have lying around.
    • Have a dedicated Gratitude Box. Each morning, write one thing you’re grateful for on a slip of paper. Insert the slip into a small box or mason jar. Then, at the end of a year, remove the 365 pieces of paper and read through them, feeling that wave of appreciation wash over you all over again.
    • Keep a gratitude journal. You can write down several things you’re grateful for each morning, or you can focus on one thing and write all the aspects of that thing that you especially appreciate.
    • Simply acknowledge your gratitude. You don’t necessarily have to write it down. As you’re showering, eating breakfast, or commuting to work, you can think about all the things in your life that you feel thankful for.

    You can learn about the benefits of gratitude and why it’s an especially powerful practice when it comes to the Law of Attraction in this article.

    Daily Intention Setting

    One of the most profound practices you can do each day to support your manifestations is to set daily intentions.

    Unlike a goal, which is the thing you ultimately want to manifest into your reality, an intention is how you want to be as you work towards your goals.

    For instance, if you want to manifest financial prosperity, you might set the intention to be the embodiment of abundance in your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

    Set a daily intention that feels good to you. And if you find that you’ve strayed from your intention (i.e. you’re not being the embodiment of abundance like you had intended), that’s okay!

    As soon as you have that realization, you can simply choose to return back to your intention and realign with the thoughts, feelings, and overall frequency of your desired manifestation.

    Here are some examples of intentions you can set:

    • Today, I will be present in every moment.
    • I will hold strength in my heart and clarity in my mind.
    • I will be my most authentic self in all moments.
    • As I move through this day, I will choose love over fear.
    • I will accomplish everything I focus on.
    • I will take deep breaths and inhale confidence when I feel anxious or nervous.
    • Today, I will succeed in everything I do.
    • I will accept all opportunities that come my way.
    • I will ask myself in all moments, “How can I serve?”
    • In all moments, I will find things to be grateful for.
    • I will be the highest version of myself.
    • I will spread kindness in my words and actions.


    If you’re ready to skip this section because you don’t think you have time for journaling, don’t leave just yet. You might be surprised by all the journaling tactics you can do in just a few minutes.

    I cover different types of manifestation journaling extensively on this site, so I’ll briefly summarize a few journaling practices and link to each corresponding article below.

    • Scripting: Scripting is the practice of writing about your dreams and desires in story-like form, as if you already possess everything you want to manifest right now. For instance, if you want to manifest a specific job, you can write as if you’re living a day in that dream job. The key to unlocking the magic of scripting is to truly feel the positive emotions of already having everything you desire. Then, carry these positive feelings with you throughout your day. To learn more about scripting and download a free Law of Attraction scripting template, click here. Estimated Time: 10 to 20 minutes.
    • 55×5 Manifestation Method: To practice the 55×5 Manifestation Method, choose an affirmation, then write down your chosen affirmation 55 times in a row for 5 days straight. For example, if you want to manifest a trip to Hawaii, your affirmation might be, “I am so grateful that I’m going on my dream vacation to Hawaii!” On Day 1, grab a journal or notebook and write this affirmation 55 times in a row. Days 2, 3, 4, and 5 – same thing. And again, allow yourself to feel the positive emotions attached to this affirmation as if it’s already come true. To learn more about the 55×5 Manifestation Method, click here. Estimated Time: 10 to 20 minutes depending on the length of the affirmation.
    • 369 Method: To practice the 369 Method, choose an affirmation just like what you’d use for the 55×5 Manifestation Method. Write down your affirmation 3 times in the morning, 6 times in the afternoon, and 9 times in the evening. Do this for 21 days in a row. As you write it down, maintain high vibrations and make sure to be consistent. You can learn more about the 369 Method here. Estimated Time: 3 to 5 minutes.


    One big plus meditation has going for it? You can actually incorporate almost all of the practices above in a ten-minute meditation.

    You’ll find guided meditations dedicated to gratitude, positive affirmations, visualization, or setting daily intentions.

    And you’ll even find manifestation meditations that include all of these components in one track.

    If you’re first starting out with meditation, I highly recommend using an app to help you get started. Many of these apps have beginner meditations to introduce you to the different concepts, often focused especially on breath work.

    Here are a few of the best ones that you can try out today:

    Finally, before you get started, know that this is not a competition. Nobody gets extra credit for meditating longer or being more still than everyone else. Ten minutes (or even five) is all you need to start a morning meditation practice.

    And please, please know that meditation is not about being perfect.

    My mind wanders all the time when I’m meditating. And that’s okay!

    Meditation teaches us to notice those moments, acknowledge them, and gently allow ourselves to come back to the present moment, over and over again.

    Suggested Morning Routines (Based On Time)

    We all have our non-negotiables when it comes to our morning routine.

    Some of these are for personal hygiene and cleanliness reasons, like showering, brushing teeth, and moisturizing routines. Drying and straightening/curling hair, putting on makeup, and picking out the perfect outfit might be components of your morning routine. And you might also like to sit down and eat a real breakfast before you head out the door.

    Only you know what your non-negotiables are, so factor in the time it takes to complete these tasks as you decide how much time you can realistically dedicate to your morning routine.

    And know that it’s okay to start small.

    If you’re able to wake up ten minutes earlier to add a ten-minute manifesting practice to your day, that’s incredible. Truly. By taking that seemingly small step, you show the universe that you’re committed, focused, and persistent.

    Just the very act of committing to yourself is going to open up so many amazing opportunities and experiences for you. Over time, you may want to add another five minutes or find new ways to maximize your time. You’re in the driver’s seat here, and you get to decide what’s right for you.

    Five Minutes

    • Complete the Morning Routine template below!
    • Or, instead of the template, you can spend your five minutes practicing visualization. Then, as you’re getting ready for the day, you can mentally go through your gratitude list, recite some uplifting positive affirmations, and set an empowering intention for the day.

    Ten Minutes

    • Complete the above Morning Routine template. Then, with any remaining time, do a short visualization practice. You can use your vision board or complete a five-minutes guided meditation. For extra positivity, keep repeating positive affirmations as you get ready for the day.

    Twenty to Thirty Minutes

    • Do a ten to fifteen minute meditation. Then, complete the Morning Routine template. If you have any time remaining, add some extra affirmations or do a one-to-two minute visualization. Keep reciting affirmations and internally focusing on the things you’re grateful for as you shower, eat breakfast, and commute to work.

    Forty Minutes

    • Do a ten-minute meditation. Then, complete twenty minutes of journaling. With the remaining time, complete the Morning Routine template. Keep affirming your worthiness and focusing on all the wonderful things you feel grateful for as you finish getting ready for the morning.

    Fifty to Sixty Minutes

    • Complete thirty minutes of journaling, then a 10 to 20 minute meditation (or vice versa). Use any remaining time to complete the Morning Routine template. Or, if you prefer, you can use a separate notebook to write down your intentions for the day. Keep focusing on gratitude and positive affirmations as you get yourself ready in the morning!

    Overcoming Procrastination

    We’ve all experienced moments of procrastination throughout our lives. We procrastinate schoolwork, job assignments, household chores, going to the gym, and all the tedious tasks on our daily to-do lists. But it’s not just the small things we put off. Sometimes, we put off having that hard conversation. We avoid trying that new thing we always kind of wanted to do but have been scared to try because of all the uncertainties associated with doing something we’ve never done before. And we’ll also even procrastinate taking the first step to living our dreams, often because of fear of failure and not wanting to make mistakes.

    There’s a difference between taking a rest day to give yourself a mental break from all your daily tasks (these are often needed) and avoiding something that you know needs to get done. You’ll know the difference from how it feels. A rest break will feel like a soulful sigh of relief; procrastination will feel like a heavy weight bearing down on your body that just won’t go away.

    Procrastination has affected us all at some point, but you have the power at any point to change your story. You control your thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and actions. So at any moment, you can choose to step away from procrastination and step into the life you want to create for yourself.

    Here are some tips for overcoming procrastination:

    • Remember your why. Why are you doing this task in the first place? Why does this matter? If you do this one thing, what will you gain?
    • Release perfection. One of the biggest barriers to getting started is the fear of making mistakes. Give yourself permission to be imperfect, make mistakes, and learn as you go.
    • Don’t wait for the right time. There will never be a “right” time, and you’ll likely never feel truly ready. Do it anyway.
    • Remember that discipline generates freedom. When you approach all your tasks with discipline, especially the ones you don’t want to do, you’re freeing up your future. (Plus, you won’t have the weight of the task still sitting on your shoulders, reminding you that it needs to get done.)

    Below, discover 30 affirmations for procrastination to help you complete your tasks and master self-discipline. Anytime you find yourself avoiding a task, return to these affirmations as a reminder that everything you do today leads you to an even better tomorrow.

    Affirmations For Procrastination

    • I am equipped with all the tools I need to complete the task in front of me.
    • I have the ability to focus on what needs to get done.
    • By taking care of this present moment, I set myself up for a beautiful future.
    • I can accomplish everything that needs to get done today.
    • I allow myself to focus on one small step at a time.

    45 Goal Affirmations For Achieving Your Dreams

    The path to your goals begins with a vision, self-belief, and the courage to take the first step. Below, discover 45 empowering goal affirmations to help you gain confidence and unlock your inner strength as you step forward on the path to achieving your most heartfelt dreams.

    Achieving Your Goals

    It starts with a dream: a vision of a life that excites you. That lights you up. That brings you to your knees.

    You write down this vision and turn it into a goal, and you decide what you need to do to achieve this goal.

    From this goal, you create a plan. Your plan isn’t complete, though. There are holes where you’re not sure how you’ll get from A to B. You might call these holes uncertainties at first, but in time, you discover they’re actually possibilities. They help you to remain open to the unexpected. To find opportunities where you didn’t see them before.

    You follow this plan, one small step at a time, trusting your intuition to guide you forward. And it may happen in a single grand moment, or it may sneak up on you unexpectedly, but one day, you’ll look around in awe as you discover the vision you once had is now your reality. You created this. You made the abstract real and the impossible possible. And you never needed any special powers or abilities to get here. It all happened because you had a vision and the courage to take the first step.

    This is the path to achieving your dreams. What was once a vision in your mind becomes a goal, and from that goal, you create a plan to help you get from where you are now to where you want to be. The key is to not make your plan too narrow. Don’t confine yourself to one possible path, but leave a little room for the unexpected. You may find that there are roads that will lead you to your goals that are even faster (and more enjoyable) than your original plan if you keep an open heart and open mind.

    It all starts with a vision, self-belief, and the courage to take the first step.

    You are worthy of achieving your biggest, most heartfelt goals. Below, discover 45 empowering goal affirmations to help you gain confidence and unlock your inner strength as you step forward on the path to creating the life of your dreams.

    Setting Goals

    Most of us have short-term and long-term goals for our lives. These goals might include positive career movement, financial success, living in the place you’ve always dreamed of, and/or building healthy personal relationships.

    But how often do you take the time to write your goals down? It’s easy to lose sight of your goals in the midst of your daily life. When dealing with external demands, thinking about your long-term goals sometimes seems less urgent.

    But it shouldn’t be.

    Your goals matter. Every dream, desire, passion, and objective that’s been placed inside you has been put there for a reason. And you owe it to yourself to follow it as far as it will take you.

    Below, you’ll find 33 journal prompts for goal setting and future planning. I’ve also included some tips on how to use these journal prompts as well as resources throughout the article to help you with achieving your goals. Let these journal prompts and resources guide you in creating a life that fulfills your heart and supports your mind, body, and spirit.

    The Dreams, Goals & Manifestation Printables are a PDF file filled with 153 content pages that are completely dedicated to helping you manifest your dream life.

With these printables, you’ll find multiple calendars, worksheet pages, and goal-setting tools that you can use over and over again, not just month after month but year after year

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    • To start, find a quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted. Allow yourself to truly connect with your inner self. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning, afternoon, or evening; what matters is that you’re able to devote this time to you. See if you can dedicate at least ten to twenty minutes solely to journaling.
    • You can answer just one question at a time or several in a single journaling session. It will just depend on the type of question and what kinds of answers it reveals within. (Just don’t rush it!)
    • If you find yourself straying from the question a little, that’s okay. You might be on the verge of discovering something within yourself you hadn’t realized before.
    • Finally, enact a “no self-criticism” rule while you’re journaling. Let’s say that as you write, you realize that you haven’t been making any positive movement toward your goals in the past six months. Don’t judge yourself here. Instead, choose to show yourself compassion, and acknowledge the fact that you’re making progress now.

    Updated September 2nd, 2021

    Why Use Night Affirmations?

    I am 100% guilty of focusing on positive affirmations in the morning and even the afternoon while completely abandoning them at night.

    It’s an easy trap to fall into.

    For me, I have a morning routine that includes journaling for 30 minutes right when I wake up. And almost always, these journal entries include some high-vibe, uplifting affirmations to help me start the day feeling positive and inspired. My workouts are also done early in the day, which is another time I repeat positive affirmations to myself. And I’m pretty decent at remembering to silently recite affirmations when I’m out and about, or when I get a few seconds to pause during work.

    But when it comes to the evening, I’m not the best at reaffirming my worthiness. Or simply reminding myself that everything I did today was enough. And the things I didn’t do? Those things are okay, too.

    Because my worthiness is not defined by my achievements.

    Recently, I set the intention to be more mindful with repeating nighttime affirmations. When I say this, know that this isn’t for the sake of just mechanically repeating positive words like a robot. The purpose of these affirmations is to be more mindful with my thoughts and the way I speak to myself, while owning my story and telling my own truths (especially when my pesky brain starts to return to bully mode).

    What Are Positive Affirmations?

    positive affirmations
    “I Am” Affirmations

    Positive affirmations are statements (usually made in the present-tense) designed to uplift and encourage while boosting self-belief and supporting your overall wellbeing.

    The classic first two words of an uplifting affirmation are, “I am . . .”

    However, an affirmation can start with any phrase that fits the context of what you want to affirm.

    Here are a couple other common ways you might start an affirmation:

    • I can . . .
    • I accept . . .
    • My (life, heart, body, worthiness) . . .
    • I release . . .
    • I have . . .
    • All is . . .
    • Everything is . . .
    • I feel . . .

    Manifestation Journal Prompts

    Below are 10 powerful journal prompts for manifestation, designed to help you create the beautiful, joyful, and abundant life of your dreams. These journal prompts for manifestation can be completed in any order you want, and you can even choose the ones you like best to do multiple times.

    Journal Prompt: Visualization of Your Dream Life

    Write the details of a full day in your dream life. Use the present tense. (“I am . . . “; “I wear . . .”; “As I walk through my home, I notice . . .”) Where do you wake up? Who are you with? What does your morning routine look like? Describe the details of your home. Where is it located? What do you do during your day? What do you wear? Where do you go during the day? If you work, what kind of job do you have? What are the predominant emotions you feel throughout the day?

    Use all your senses; describe what you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. How do you feel when you go to sleep? What are your last thoughts before falling into a peaceful slumber?

    Be as detailed as possible, and remember to keep an open mind to any and all possibilities. This is your dream life. You’re the creator. Let your inner knowing guide you through your vision.

    Why It Works: The first step of manifesting is to set an intention. In order to create the life of your dreams, you first have to get clear about what you want. In manifestation, you don’t need to know how you’re going to achieve your dream. Rather, you just need to know what it is that you want. This practice will help you to gain a clearer vision of exactly what your dream life looks like. It will also help you to feel all of the positive vibrations of having your dreams in the present moment, allowing you to become a magnet for your desires.

    Journal Prompt: Gratitude

    Write down everything you’re grateful for today. There is nothing too small or too offbeat to write about. If it helps, you can use the prompt, “I am grateful for ___ because _____” to discuss each item in detail. If you get stuck, consider writing about different people in your life. You can also discuss various objects in your home or moments of your life that you’re grateful for. Nothing’s off limits here. You can even discuss adversity and hardships that brought you growth.

    Why It Works: Gratitude is the foundation for all abundance. When I began consciously cultivating a daily gratitude practice and shifted my default perspective from one of lack to one of appreciation for all that I have, my life completely transformed. All of the things I’d written on my vision board that once seemed so far away were suddenly in my grasp. The quickest and easiest (and most joyful) way to receive abundance is to just love and appreciate all that you already have.

    As Rumi wrote, “Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.”

    Journal Prompt: Body Appreciation

    Write down a list of everything you’re grateful for about your body. Consider each body part: each muscle, limb, organ, and system that keeps you going throughout your life. If you’d like, you can choose a few body parts to write several sentences on (such as the mouth that shows your radiant smile and allows you to taste yummy food). Here are some examples:

    • “I am grateful for my eyes because they allow me to _________.”
    • “I am grateful for my heart because it is __________.”
    • “Today, I really appreciate my legs because they __________.”

    Why It Works: Same as #2, but this time, we’re focusing solely on your body. Why? Because your body is your home. It’s where you live every single day. It’s an incredible gift to have these bodies. To have working lungs and a beating heart. Yet, so many of us tear our bodies apart. Whether or not your intended manifestation relates to your body, cultivating a deep love and appreciation for your body (and treating it like an ally, not an enemy) will only serve to open up space for your manifestations to happen faster. Here are 42 body-positive affirmations to help you get started.

    Journal Prompt: Speak to Your Younger Self

    Imagine that the five-year-old you is standing in front of you, and in your mind’s eye, envision looking into the eyes of your younger self. Now write positive affirmations to this younger version of you as if you’re speaking directly to them. Tell them how worthy, deserving, and loved they are. Deliver them positive and supportive messages. Speak with wholehearted love, kindness, and compassion. This entire journal entry is dedicated to affirming your worthiness.

    Why It Works: In order to manifest your desires, you have to truly believe in yourself. And most importantly, you must believe that you are worthy and deserving of your dreams. Speaking to your younger self helps you to let down your guard. Sometimes, we have a hard time telling ourselves that we deserve joy, but when you look into the eyes of your childhood self, it becomes easier. (But if you’d rather look into your own eyes as an adult, or choose a different age, definitely do whatever feels best for you.)

    Journal Prompt: Passion and Purpose

    What drives you? What lights up your heart? Where are you happiest? What activities make you feel most joyful and alive? Write about the things that you feel passionate about. These can be dreams, causes, groups of people, or important messages you want the whole world to know. Write with passion and conviction. What’s important to you? Only you know what makes your soul feel alive. There’s no right or wrong answer. As you write about your passions and dreams, consider ways you might be able to combine these different passions into a career or pastime that will make your heart soar.

    Why It Works: You have a unique set of skills and passions that make you you. Do you love to write? Are you passionate about fitness? Does it light up your soul to help others? When you write about your passions, you open yourself up to inspired ideas. Allow the words to flow without self-judgment. See where it takes you.

    Journal Prompt: New Perspectives

    Write in detail about your day yesterday (or a recent day that you can remember vividly). Who did you see and speak to? What did you eat? Did you drive anywhere? What movies, TV shows, or sports events did you watch? What moments brought you joy? Discuss any obstacles or hardships you encountered throughout the day. How can you reframe these negative experiences positively? What did you learn from these moments? How did you grow?

    Even if yesterday felt like a crummy day, write about it as if it was actually a really great day. This isn’t asking you to suppress the bad. Rather, consider choosing a different perspective when possible. For instance, maybe standing in line at the grocery store for what felt like an eternity or hitting all those red lights were really opportunities to pause and breathe.

    What happened during this day that you’re grateful for?

    Why It Works: This ties back to gratitude. Our lives are the sums of stories that we tell ourselves. And in manifestation, you attract what you put out in the world. So if you believe that you’ve had bad day after bad day after bad day, you know what you’ll attract? More bad days. But if you shift your perspective and choose to view these days as positive opportunities and experiences that you feel grateful for, you know what’ll happen then? You’ll receive more positive opportunities and wonderful experiences to feel grateful for. You don’t have to suppress the bad stuff. Rather, consider all the ways these “bad” things helped you to grow.

    Journal Prompt: Your Highest and Most Authentic Self

    Envision your highest and most authentic self. This is the real you—the truest, most authentic version of you. What is your highest and most authentic self like? How do you make other people feel? How do you move about your day? Are you energetic or calm? How do you speak? How do you walk? What’s your aura like when you walk into a room? What kinds of activities do you do? Do you move fast or slow? What types of clothes do you wear that make you feel good? If you’d like, you may envision a typical day in your life, and imagine how your highest self would react to the various ups and downs of your day.

    Why It Works: This helps you get clear on what you want and who you want to be. Aligning with your highest self will serve you in your daily life as you make important decisions and choose how to spend your day. Whenever you’re unsure about something, you can ask, “What would my highest and most authentic self do in this situation?”

    Your highest self is the person living your dream life, so by making the same decisions that this version of you would make, you’re choosing the path that leads directly to your dreams (and becoming the person you dream of being).

    Journal Prompt: Celebrate You

    What are your favorite things about yourself? What are your talents? In what ways are you an awesome friend? What makes you a good employee and/or manager? What makes you a good partner? List some of your superpowers. This is the day to celebrate you. Compliment yourself. Write about the compliments other people give you. And accept those compliments! If you get stuck, write down some positive affirmations. Affirm your worthiness completely.

    Why It Works: When you believe in yourself, the rest of the world will have no choice but to believe in you, too. You deserve to be loved, and you deserve to be celebrated. One of the biggest obstacles to manifestation is simply not believing in yourself. After all, most of us are our own biggest critics. Starting self-love practices like saying positive affirmations and affirming your worthiness will help you begin your manifestation journey with a foundation of love, compassion, and an open heart.

    Journal Prompt: Envision Your Success

    What would you do today if you knew you wouldn’t fail? List out all of the things you would do today if you knew undoubtedly that you would succeed. As you write, visualize your success. Imagine how this will feel and write out these feelings. Don’t limit yourself, and don’t hold back.

    Why It Works: More visualization, but this time, it’s a little closer, as these are all the things that you would do today if you knew you couldn’t fail. As I said earlier, you don’t need to figure out the how when it comes to manifesting. The universe will always guide you to the next step when the time is right, and you’ll always know that it’s right by the way it feels. Notice how you feel as you write. Do any of these fearless steps feel really good? One of my all-time favorite quotes is by Jack Canfield: “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” Our fears sometimes prevent us from taking the next step, but if you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you do?

    Journal Prompt: Letting Go

    In what areas of your life are there things you can let go of in order to make room for new opportunities and exciting possibilities? What things are you justifying keeping, and why? When you let go of a job, person, belief, or another aspect of your life that may be holding you back, it’s easy to see what you’ll lose but hard to see what you might gain. Focus on the possibilities and experiences you might gain by letting go of the things that are holding you back.

    Why It Works: In order to allow new people, experiences, opportunities, and resources into our lives, we need to make space for them. Sometimes, there are people, experiences, or things that once served our growth, but now they no longer contribute to our total well-being. Identifying these things is the first step. Letting go is the next, often more difficult step. I’ve let go of friendships, jobs, and even entire cities during my journey, and while it was never easy, it opened up space for new incredible people and experiences to enter my life. It isn’t always easy, but when you know in your heart that it’s the right choice, it’s always worth it.
