Manifest your dreams by doing the things that challenge you. I love sharing my manifestation stories with you, and these past 2 weeks have been filled with amazing things I’ve attracted into my life.
Write it down.
When I first started the Conscious Manifesto Podcast, there were 2 people specifically I wanted to interview someday: bestselling author, Cara Alwill Leyba and Cathy Heller from the Don’t Keep Your Day Job Podcast. I wrote this down in my journal and put it on my vision board. Both women have played a huge role in my journey towards entrepreneurship.
Overcome Limiting Beliefs
Then the limiting beliefs started to creep in. I have known Cara for a few years now and connected with her many times, but I felt like I needed to wait until I reached a certain level of success to ask her to be on the show. I felt like I was asking her a huge favor. As for Cathy, I immediately started telling myself there was no way someone who was at the top of the iTunes Charts would ever consider being on my new podcast.
Shift Your Perspective
I told myself these stories for months until one day, I shifted my perspective. We had recently done an episode on Raising Your Vibration and how health was a huge part of the equation. I knew Cara had been evolving towards a plant-based lifestyle and was passionate about the topic. Instead of making it all about me asking her for a favor, I shifted my perspective to make it about helping her reach a new audience around this new passion and lifestyle she evolved into. I reached out to her and she immediately said yes!
I did the same thing with Cathy Heller where I shifted my thoughts from asking her this huge favor to looking at this interview as an opportunity for her to promote her upcoming book to a new audience. She immediately said yes as well!
All of those fear based thoughts were holding me back from having the best interviews I’ve ever had and building relationships with these women I idolized.
Here’s what I realized from this experience:
- The only thing holding me back from my dreams are my mindset and beliefs.
- I am worthy of doing incredible things and SO ARE YOU!
- One simple shift in perspective can set you free from the fear based thoughts.
So go do the thing you’ve been dying to do that scares the shit out of you and manifest your dreams! Start playing at the level you want to be at. You deserve to be there. You bring value to the table. Claim your seat!

P.S. – I am starting a book club for Cathy Heller’s new book Don’t Keep Your Day Job. This is a small book club for anyone who is serious about getting out of the 9-5 grind and making their dream a reality. The book will be released in November, but we will get started with setting our goals, motivating one another and brainstorming. Think of it as a mini mastermind. If you want to join, pre-order the book on Amazon or Barnes & Noble and join the book club group here. I look forward to working closely with you in this group! Note: This is a FREE group. All you have to do is pre-order the book.
