Do you know what kind of business you want to start?
Do you know how you want to go about making more money?
Do you know what kind of job you want?
Maybe you do, and if so, that’s great.
But if you don’t, there’s no need to force yourself to figure it out.
Sometimes it might seem like you need to know the answer, now, especially if you want to use techniques like visualization, which require knowing specific details of the manifestation.
But you’d be surprised how often I’ve gotten questions from people saying they just don’t know what they want.
And you may also be surprised to know that that’s perfectly OK.
You don’t need to know all the details up front. And often, trying to figure out those details just leads to frustration.
People often think the law of attraction requires a lot of detail, but it just doesn’t.
In fact, the great thing about the LOA is that momentum flows from the general to the specific.
That means, even if you just hold the feeling of what you want, the LOA will fill in more and more specific details over time which are a match to that feeling.
You’ll have more specific thoughts come to mind that fill in the details. Or you’ll come across something out in physical reality that inspires you. Ideas will start flowing and soon enough, the specifics will come easily to you.
This process is truly all so effortless — there’s nothing you need to do at all to try to come up with very specific details of your desire. Let the law of attraction act on your behalf and bring the best details to you.
Of course it’s fine if you are already very specific. It’s just that you don’t have to be. You aren’t any less likely to get your desire just because it’s in a general state right now.
You need little more than just a mere spark of your desire, and the LOA will fill the rest in for you.
The way I started Possible Promise Financial is a perfect example. At first I thought I wanted it to be an investment advisor, but quickly found that this was not my desire.
All I knew is that I wanted to help people get control of their money. But I had no idea of how I wanted to do that or what it’d look like.
So it sat on the back-burner for a while as life moved on. And then the inspiration started coming.
I discovered bookkeeping, which itself was a manifestation of a long-lasting enjoyment of accounting principles and desire to use them regularly. But then I realized that wasn’t enough: I also wanted to integrate the law of attraction into my work. And I also wanted to help individuals with their money, too, not just businesses.
The details filled in, little by little — and I’m sure will continue to do so. And all I did was hold that basic knowledge that I wanted to help others with their financial situation, and the business has grown out of that vision.
Even that basic vision got more specific. Now I say that I want to help others “revolutionize their consciousness around money.” That’s so much more specific and inspiring than just, “help others with their financial situation.” I can feel that vision. It inspires me. It moves me.
But I didn’t know it two years ago. It took time to clarify.
So maybe you just know you want to have a lot of money. Or perhaps you know that you want to start a business for the freedom it provides, but aren’t yet sure exactly what you’d like to do. Or, maybe all you know is that you want to be free of your 9-5 job and yet still have enough money to get by, somehow.
Those are all perfectly valid desires. They’re not specific, no, but they are your desires.
But how do you even get started when you just aren’t sure where to go or what to do?
Just start with the feeling.
You want abundance. You want freedom. You want to enjoy what you do.
The reason your undesired situation sticks around so persistently is because you keep focusing on it and how horrible it is.
Stop that. Focus instead on the feelings you want to create more of.
Instead of focusing on how your current situation makes you feel trapped and powerless, focus instead on the freedom you want to create.
Instead of focusing on how little money you have, focus on the effortless abundance you want to experience.
That’s truly the only way to turn things around. Stop focusing on what you don’t want, and start focusing on what you do want.
Do that for long enough, and the law of attraction will start bringing you ways in which you can actually manifest those feelings in outer reality.
The perfect business idea will come. You’ll make tons of money on some lucky investment. You’ll somehow receive an unexpected windfall. Or, maybe you’ll win the lottery (really cool interview in that video).
And whatever does come about, it’ll be that which best matches your collective total desires. It’ll be the perfect match for everything that you’ve wanted, even if you never vocalized it or made it explicit.
So why worry about the detail? Don’t just manifest your desire, manifest even the specifics of your desire. Start with the seed, the pure emotion, which is what you want anyway, and let the Universe fill in the rest.
