Happy New Year 2014! Have you gotten yourself a New Year resolution? I reflected during New Years Eve about the lessons that I have learned from the year 2013, recalling the best moments I cherished and many reasons to be thankful for. Several times in our lives, we thought that we can dictate the outcome of our consequences and expecting a favorable result from our decisions. Many received what they asked for but some people never get what they really wanted. Is God, a Supreme Being, or the Universe picking and selecting whose wish is to be granted?
The Bible also mentioned Abide, Ask, Believe, and Receive. Jesus promises in Matthew 21:22, “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Believing is at the heart of answered prayer. But how do you get this faith to believe? God does not require you to have great faith. You simply are to have faith in a great God. Nothing will be impossible for you. “Ask in faith without any doubting” for the double-minded person cannot expect God to answer His prayers. You see, it’s the quality not the quantity of the faith that is important.
If you want to receive something you are visualizing, the process you must follow is Ask (you must ASK for something), Believe ( you must BELIEVE it is yours) and Receive (you will RECEIVE it). Each of us has different beliefs. We have different religions, different sects, some believe in the Supreme Being, some prefer not to believe in any gods, but above all these we know that there is a Force above us which can be referred to as the Universe.
Simple steps to Ask, Believe, Receive:
1. Ask – you must form a CLEAR INTENTION as to what you want. Visualize the same thing every day. Be consistent and as detailed as possible!
2. Believe – to increase your self-belief and faith is to REPEATEDLY visualize yourself as having already achieved your goal as much in detail as you can. The more you visualize your success, the more you will begin to believe at a conscious and unconscious level.
3. Receive – merely asking and believing will NOT get you the results you want. You have to learn how to GENERATE THE SAME FEELINGS you would have if you had ALREADY achieved your goals. You must take action, and action comes easy when you are in the Ask Believe Receive mindset. This increases your chances of success with visualization.
I believe Yes People Matter!’s first blog of the year 2014 would inspire all of you to create and live the dream you want. May this year bring you and your family peace, joy, and love! A blessed and successful year to all of you!
