    You say, “Eventually we all get to a point where we realize that we can’t just manifest things with our thought.” but, that’s the only way we manifest anything in life–whether we perceive it to be positive or negative. It’s just that we don’t possess a ‘mental magic wand’ that allows us to manifest to order. We manifest whatever the dominating thoughts of our minds are focused on. The trick is, that the dominating thoughts of our minds are most often occupied with focusing on current circumstances, and the lack of what we desire.

    Anyway, I love your thoughtful approach to writing. I enjoy how you dig into a topic and share your thoughts and ideas in a fresh, provocative way. Keep digging and sharing the wisdom.

    [...] SESSION 1: THE ESSENCE & FOUNDATION OF GREATER PRODUCTIVITY: “Eventually we all get to a point where we realize that we can’t just manifest things with our thought. After the inspiration from a watching a movie dies down, the motivation from a hearing a speaker wears out or the enthusiasm from a great new idea trickles away (if you’re like most of us) you’re stuck in that familiar state of not knowing to what to do next or why you can’t get yourself to do anything at all.” Here I explain the overall concept: I break down what I mean by “productivity,” the type of things you’ll learn and some easy tools to help you measure how precise you currently are. I also make an important disclaimer, so it lays a great foundation for the rest of the series… [...]
