Here's my latest trick for living life and achieving my dreams: I just pretend everything is going to work out.

Before you even BEGIN to go there, NO! This is not The Secret! I absolutely do NOT think that just by believing something is going to happen I will somehow manipulate the universe into giving it to me. The universe isn't a vending machine and I have no idea how much cash would be required to make my dreams come true even if it was. Probably a lot.

Nope, this is just a way to trick myself out of holding myself back.

It's easy!

Step 1: Think about a thing that you want in your life.

Step 2: Imagine that it's definitely going to work out eventually, you just have to do the work to get it there.

Step 3: Magically find that you have stopped getting in your own way and start doing the things that will get you there.

Step 4: When it seems like it's not working out, remember that it will, and this is all just part of the story of how you got there.

Ta-daaaaah!

Another way to look at it is to ask yourself one simple question, over and over again: "If I really believed this was going to work out, what would I be doing to make it happen?"

Ta-daaaaaah!

Seriously though, it's not that all the doubts are gone, but it really made it easier for me to move forward on some goals that I was making insurmountable thanks to fear and insecurity. It is so much easier to think about next steps and to act on them if I think about them in the context of future success.
