In order to manifest our dreams, we need to align our self-image with the life we would love living.
If your sense of deserving isn’t wide and deep enough to hold your dream, you will fall short.
How do you know if you deserve your dream? If you are breathing, you deserve to have your heart’s desire. Simply by virtue of you being alive you are worthy and deserving of your dream.
You wouldn’t feel the longing if you didn’t have the capacity to manifest your dream.
Here are three keys to increasing your sense of deserving:
1. Focus on the good.
Circumstances are bad only if you perceive them as such. Instead of panicking when life appears to throw you a curve, wait and invite God to reveal the good. Then give yourself the same benefit of the doubt. You are naturally good because God created you.
2. Let go of past mistakes.
It’s hard to move confidently into the life you have imagined if you are lugging deadweight. When you persist in carrying the baggage of your childhood, your shame or your belief that you are unlovable, you have no room for greater possibility. Let go of encumbrances by identifying and releasing your own.
3. Practice gratitude to increase your sense of deserving.
An “attitude of gratitude” enables you to construct your dream on a solid foundation of deserving. Begin by spending a day giving thanks to those you’ve criticized. From there, build a pattern of daily gratitude. When we begin to appreciate those we once condemned or took for granted, the field around the object of our appreciation broadens, attracting to itself even greater good.
When you practice these three principles, you will feel your sense of deserving expand and you’ll begin to see unexpected good things flow into your life.
You Are Worthy! Remain present and adopt an attitude of gratitude from this day forth!
“Acknowledge the people in your life: those you love and those you may not love. In a true sense, they are all the same. They are your teachers. Be grateful for them.” - Louise L. Hay
