On episode 19 of the Higher Ground Living Podcast we take a fresh look at Manifest U 2018. Manifest U 2018 is our headline and deliberate focus for this year. Where we are focusing our faith on creating our most authentic lives. Creating the lives we believe we are born to live. Taking all our dreams and desires, bringing them to the front of our awareness and making a deliberate decision to go after them.

Life presents us with many choices and directions to go. Where do you find yourself today? Are you building a life that represents the true you? Or are you a slave to what life throws you? Are you playing the victim or the victor? Whatever we are, we have chosen to be. Wherever we are we have walked the path to get there. Life is the sum total of the decisions we have made.

In this year, 2018, it is time to reset the journey. It’s time to give yourself permission to become your true self. Where you are in life today is where you have given yourself permission to be. Life can happen to you or life can happen for you. Which path will you take?

You may feel and believe that life controls you. That your life is beyond your control but that’s just what you have allowed to happen. That’s the total of the decisions you have made so far. You have let the hard times wear you down. You have let the negative situations dictate the direction of your life. You have let fear get control over your faith. It’s time to regain the faith that will create the life you deserve to live. It’s time to give yourself permission to be the real you.

Who is the real you?

The real you is a powerful creative being that has the capacity to move mountains with faith. The real you is that person you dreamed of being when you were a child. The real you is that person you see when you dream of a better life. When you put down your fear for a moment and just dream. You catch a glimpse of a version of yourself that has happiness and strength. Doing and creating a life of significance for yourself and those around you.

One way or the other we are all manifesting a life. We are all responsible for the decisions we are choosing to make. Yes it’s complicated, yes it’s hard and yes life can throw us some really tough situations but reality is, the choices we make are our own. Those choices are giving us the life we have today.

Where is your faith?

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen”.

Faith creates, faith manifests. Wherever we direct our faith we create. So, where is your faith? Is your faith focused on building the life you dream of? Is it creating happiness, love, joy and peace? Or is you faith filled with fear? Are you focused on the false evidence that appears real and worrying about tomorrow? Has your life become a struggle, filled with uncertainty and frustration?

Faith creates and faith manifests. Where is your faith today? Where is it right now? Here in this moment? Look at yourself and ask, what am I manifesting this year?

Is it the same old frustrated life that you have always had or is it a life full of faith and possibility? Is it that life that jumps hurdles like world champion hurdler Sally Pearson? Do you glide over each hurdle with practiced precision or do you crash awkwardly into each hurdle hurting and damaging yourself until you walk away from the race altogether, hiding yourself away waiting for someone to rescue you?

Wherever you find yourself at this moment, it is time to change. It is time to get up, get back in the race and continue to build the life you were born to have. It is time to stop waiting for someone else to give you permission to thrive and take it for yourself. The only real permission available is the permission you give yourself. It’s time to build the mindset you need to succeed. Step by step, inch by inch, build a powerful breakthrough mindset that will manifest the life you desire.

You can start right now, this is your year. This is the year it all began to change because you made the decision to change. You began to create a new mindset, a breakthrough mindset. A strong, healthy, faith filled mindset.

Manifest U 2018.

What could you achieve if you really believed in yourself?
