Everything You’ve Been Taught About Manifesting Abundance is Wrong

Author:NeuroGym Team

Manifestation is something many people believe in and turn to when it comes to manifesting abundance, yet few individuals truly manage to succeed and capture that wealth.

Why is this the case? What are these lucky people doing right? More importantly, what is everyone else doing wrong?

Join us as we explore manifestation and how to do it correctly so that you can live a life of abundance.

Manifesting Basics

When you manifest something, you set an intention and ask the Universe to make your wishes come true. It requires a belief that you will receive what you ask for. Throughout the time, you are grateful for whatever comes your way.

Some people summarize manifestation as this: Thinking about something will make it happen.

It’s a novel idea, but it’s slightly wrong. Why? Well, you cannot sit back and wait for things to happen. You have to take action, too. We’ll get to that part later; for now, let’s focus on the basics.

Ask and Believe

Start by stating, in specific terms, what you want. It might help to write it down so that you can reflect on your desires frequently.

Make a plea to the Universe—really ask it—to give you the things you want. After asking, you have to believe in the Universe (essentially, some kind of higher power) and its abilities to give you what you want.

Receive and Take Action

The Universe isn’t going to give you what you asked for on a whim—that’s not how life works. If you want to receive, you need to take action which shows you are believing in your dream and your own abilities.

Train Your Brain

Proper manifestation requires a change of thinking. You need to believe in yourself and remove obstacles standing in your way.

The Law of Attraction Only Helps So Much

The Law of Attraction is quite simple: If you think positive thoughts, then positive things will happen. The opposite is also true when it comes to negativity.

Manifestation and the Law of Attraction are quite similar, so many people use them together. In both cases, what a person wishes for only happens if they take action, but in most circumstances, people don’t.

Making It Work for You

For universal laws to work, you need to stick to some basic principles—starting with being grateful for everything you have in your life already. Next, instead of just asking the Universe for something, you set an intention to seek it actively.

As part of the process, set some goals for how you will make this thing you want a reality. Find the positives in your current situation and every day while you work toward your goal.

If negative thinking does come into the picture, then eliminate it swiftly because you don’t want anything standing in your way. Use positive affirmations to help you in these situations.

Benefiting From Universal Laws

Even if you aren’t spiritual, the universal laws give you something to believe in. It gives you a stronghold to return to when things don’t go according to plan.

You might find that using these laws in conjunction with manifestation allows you to persevere and give you a reason to continue working hard. It could even create a better sense of well-being and motivate you to trust in the Universe and yourself more.

Manifesting Abundance Properly

We’ve mentioned this already, but it’s worth stressing over and over: Manifestation and universal laws, like the Law of Attraction, don’t work if you don’t take action. Many people only focus on asking and believing, but nothing in life happens if you don’t work for it.

Set Intentions

You already know what you want, so state it as an intention. Write down your intention, and put it somewhere you can see it so that it becomes ingrained in your mind.

Focus on your wishes and intentions daily. Spend time meditating or thinking about it as frequently as possible.

Create a vision board to inspire you, and visualize yourself receiving what you ask for. Close your eyes, take a couple of deep breaths, and see your life with everything you wish in it. The more you expose yourself to that image, the more it becomes part of your life.

Take Action

Now that you can envision your future, it’s time for the next step. You have to make a conscious decision to work hard on getting what you want. It requires a continuous, dedicated effort—even when things don’t go according to plan.

There will be obstacles, and there will be trying times, but you can do this as long as you believe in yourself and take the necessary steps. Taking action all starts in your brain.

Taking Control

Controlling your future is entirely possible if you control your thoughts first. It comes down to establishing new neural networks that make positive behavior and healthy habits easier. Simultaneously, you eliminate negative thinking and only focus on constructive activities.

During the Brain-A-Thon, you will learn the mental techniques to get this right every day. You can change your life, so reserve your spot right now.

Take Action Daily

When you want something, you have to put in the hard work to get it. This requires your time daily, but you can create a manageable strategy that will help you achieve your heart’s desires much sooner.

Establish Your Goals

What do you really want in life? Write it down so that you can make it tangible.

Rewrite your ideas as goals. Instead of just saying you want to be wealthy or lose weight, add a number and a timeline. For example, “I will generate $10,000 in one month,” or “I will lose 10 pounds in three months.”

As you write down your goals, ensure you use language that conveys your belief in yourself. Replace “I want” with “I will” or “I am going to.” It shows you have confidence in your abilities.

Make a Plan

Think about how you will achieve your goal. Write down each step you need to take to get closer to the place you desire.

At this stage, you may feel overwhelmed and even consider your goal too big. Don’t let this get you under.

Break down your goal into smaller chunks that don’t seem like a hurdle to you—these are called milestones. Create a plan to reach each milestone, and start working on the first one.


When things go wrong, you may feel disheartened, but you have to persevere. You have to believe in yourself and not give up.

If you find your mind filled with doubt and negative thoughts, then you need to battle these feelings. A great way to do this is to think back on your past successes.

Take a few breaths to calm your mind, and then, reflect on past milestones and goals. Remember how you felt in those moments, and consider what you did to achieve them. Immerse yourself in the memory, and use it as motivation to continue going.

Challenge Yourself

You might not have an idea about exactly what you want right now which is fine, too. Start by thinking about what you would like to change in your life.

Commit to making one small change daily for the next 60 to 100 days, and it will soon become a habit. You can then add more changes in different areas of your life.
