Manifesting - Fact or Fiction
Manifesting has been a topic of discussion since the early 1900’s. Napoleon Hill was challenged by Dale Carnegie to research this and subsequently introduced him to the wealthiest men of his day. His first book, “The Law of Success in Fifteen Lessons”, greatly angered the men that he interviewed because it revealed all of their secrets. Henry Ford actually bought up all of the remaining copies. It was then watered down and released as “Think and Grow Rich”. I have tried to follow this concept and wanted to know if this mindset actually accomplished the desired results. In my business I get to interview many entrepreneurs. I learn of the drive, their passions and their struggles. I believe the underlying principles of success are an unwavering commitment to never give up and never quit. One key ingredient of every extremely successful entrepreneur is their ongoing commitment to life coaching. I have been a strong believer in life coaching and also the concept of manifestation. So as I sought the answers to my questions to determine the validity of success strategy. I was privileged to interview several that have experienced this first hand. Those that I talked to are living examples of the effectiveness of the combination of manifestation and life coaching.
Coral Thomas started The Secret to LIfe Coaching because she was searching for her purpose in life. She found out that coaching was in alignment with her desire to help people change their lives. She has hundreds of cases of helping people realize the manifestation of their dreams. She expanded her coaching to “make a bigger impact on the planet to teach others to manifest and create their own results and create higher consciousness on the planet.” You must find out what you desire and bring your life in alignment.
Coral has been in business for 7 years. Some successes include: having a radio show, having a TV show, being featured in the Robb Report, being trained by Bob Proctor, starting with herself as the sole coach and now having over 100 coaches in the company within only 3 years. Creating her dream life and teaching her kids to do the same thing is a major success for Coral. She hits obstacles daily, but she asks herself what the solution is and tells herself that successful people don’t back down they focus on the solution. “Successful people view obstacles differently, which means you can be a winner or a whiner, but not both” said Coral.
I was extremely impressed as I had the opportunity to hear success after success. You get an understanding of the deep, all-encompassing impact that has been achieved by so many. That is what is required, a shift in the core belief of a person. What are your core beliefs about yourself- are you fearful, depressed. Do you have feelings of unworthiness and failure. These are the things that will manifest until you change your own core belief.
“I’ve run a successful design company for 10 years but due to some personal issues and unexpected set-backs I had lost faith in myself and interest in my business. I didn’t know what I wanted to do next with my business; my thinking was cloudy and even after hours of internal debate, I just couldn’t make a decision. Deciding to work with a life coach was such a powerful choice for me. I learned how to be self-confident on a deep, authentic level and my coach taught me the tools I needed to see my life with clarity. It helped me decide what direction I wanted to take and helped me devise a step by step process to ensure my success. I’m happy to say that today, my company has flourished and is thriving! I learned how to release sabotaging thought patterns, change my core beliefs, step into my power as a business owner and make more money as a result. I feel successful and confident in a way I never have before.
