Why ‘Acting As If’ Is Not Working For Your Business Abundance

Superhero Kids

We often hear that if you ‘Act As If’ you have something already you will attract it to you. Every wonder why this works for some people to achieve business abundance and not others?

What does ‘Act As If’ mean?  It means that if you want something, you must act as if you already have it in order to get it.

For example if you want to have an abundant business you must act as if you already have that. If you want to have ideal clients you must act as if you already have them.

Act as if you already have what you want!It might not be working for you for a few reasons:

  1. If you are someone who thinks about what you want but haven’t taken the time to get really clear on what it is you want.

    The Law of Attraction cannot give you what you want if you don’t know what it is you want.

  2. If you flip-flop back and forth about believing what you want is possible, the amount of doubt you have will directly effects how much you manifest what you want.

    This self-doubt is filled with negative emotions and vibrations.

You need to have a strong clear desire for what you really want AND you need to
remove as much doubt as possible to manifest what you want!

For some people they may feel like a ‘fraud’ trying to be someone they are not. If you feel that way then you need to have a mindset shift because that attitude will never having you ‘act as if’ you had what you wanted.

You can tell yourself that you are ‘in the process of creating the perfect business for yourself with ideal clients’.

You have to feel good about what you are saying or doing to achieve what you want. Without feeling good about yourself you will never manifest something better for yourself.

Here are a few tips to help you get some clarity and remove some of the doubt that you can ‘Act As If’ and manifest your desires:

  • Check out other business entrepreneurs who already have what you want. How do they act? What do they look like? How do they dress? Who do they hang out with?  Start modeling them in a way that feels good to you.

  • Create a ‘Clarity through Contrast‘ worksheet where you make a list of what you don’t want and then a list of what your business will look like AFTER you have what you want.

  • If you like to see a visual, then do a ‘Vision Board‘ with the focus on how you will feel when you have what you want.

  • Write out your story about what will happen when you manifest your desire. Start each sentence with ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice If…‘ and then write like crazy for at least 60 seconds… you can come back to this at any time.

  • Take some ‘meditation – manifesting time‘ every day so that you start to feel what is possible.

  • Always put what you want out there and let the Law of Attraction bring it to you and remember to be OPEN and say that this would be good OR MORE!

  • If affirmations work for you – great keep using them – but if not, try saying this “I am in the process of attracting my ideal _____” (you fill in the blank).

Start paying attention to the evidence of manifesting coming your way once you start to ‘Act As If’. Go BEYOND what your goal is!

Think even BIGGER THOUGHTS once you see the evidence and remember always to express gratitude for what you are attracting.

Sometimes you just have to take a good look at who you want to become and make that your focus, believing it’s possible and looking at the evidence that each day you are getting closer to becoming who you want to be.
