Three Steps to a Big Life

In my New Normal Big Life journey, I decided that in addition to becoming a ghostwriter, author, transformational speaker, and blogger I wanted to be a journalist.
Breaking into journalism is not an easy task for anyone--but especially not for someone without a degree in journalism. This time, my MBA was useless at furthering my career aspirations.
I would need to marshal all of my resources if I was going to make my journalistic dreams come true.
Just like all of the other aspects of my #NewNormalBigLife since moving to Colorado eight months prior I took the steps to create the big life I desired.
Three easy steps to manifest your best life
Step 1 - Envision what you desire.
I envisioned myself working at a magazine, the sort of projects that I would work on, and I saw myself in the new job.
Step 2 - Be in gratitude for what you already have.

I meditated, chanted, and prayed in gratitude for the opportunity to work as a freelance writer at a magazine.
I was intentional about my spiritual practice and I remained in gratitude. I didn't come from a place of begging God, the Universe, or the Creator for what I desired. I thanked the universe for the gratitude that I was feeling now for the good fortune of a freelance writing position at a magazine in the future. I made this a part of my daily spiritual practice for one week.
Step 3- Brave rejection.
I told a friend I wanted a job at a magazine. She had a connection who might be able to tell me how to break into the magazine business.
My friend used her network to help me build my magazine business contacts. The fifteen-minute meeting on how to become a magazine contributor turned into a job interview and resulted in my dream come true.
Manifest a big life
Manifest a big life by:
Setting your intention with gratitude in the present.
Showing up prepared for the life you want.
Seizing an opportunity to shine.
