Before Roger Bannister ran a mile in under 4 minutes in 1954, nobody thought that it was possible. After he accomplished this, people all around the world began to break the 4-minute mile because they believed that it was possible.
One of Dr. Dweck’s central themes in her book Mindset is “the view you adopt for yourself profoundly affects the way you lead your life”. So if you life your life believing that you are always going to have the same boring job and live in the same boring apartment because you are incapable of success, that is a fixed mindset that will impact every decision you have in your life.
Day dreaming is actually helpful because it allows you to envision or manifest the life that you want. Before I knew about manifestation, I never thought that day dreaming could actually be a good use of my time! Manifesting your dreams allows your subconscious brain to kick into gear & begin to impact every decision you make to get you closer to that dream. Although a large component of manifesting is envisioning, it does require YOU to take action to achieve that life. Knowing what actions to take though become more clear the more you view how you want your life to be.
So start manifesting, start day dreaming, start becoming what you believe!
