3 steps to manifesting BIG results in your business

Updated: Dec 8, 2019

Listen, sister.

You and I both know when there’s something that you want, you’re going to move mountains to make it happen, right?

You’re eyeballs deep in all things personal development. You’ve gotten super clear on what you want. You’re visualizing, journaling, strategizing, executing, and doing #allthethings you know you need to be doing to get there.

But it’s still not happening.

And there is DEFINITELY nothing that calls in fear and doubt quicker than feeling like, even though you’re doing all the right things, you aren’t getting results.

And that just sends you into an even deeper state of panic because you know how quickly those doubts can build and turn into full-blown fear gremlins that kill all of your momentum.

This, sweet friend, is what we call the baby dragon phase of manifestation.

No, really. Stick with me on this one.

You see, baby dragons haven’t mastered how to direct their fire-breathing capabilities yet, so they just accidentally set everything on fire. And that’s you right now when it comes to manifesting the results you want in your business.

You have ALL the tools. If anything, you probably know too much at this point, and that’s why every little doubt or fear you have about your business feels MASSIVELY uncomfortable.

SO, first thing’s first, this is a GOOD thing. I promise. Because feeling all the feelings means you have a lot of energy flowing, so now you just need to focus it in the right direction.

In other words, you’ve been getting ready to be ready, and it’s time to blast this business off its launch pad, baby!

But in order to do that, we gotta get you from baby dragon to full-blown fire-breathing powerhouse REAL QUICK. Cool?

Cool. Here are my three steps to mastering your manifestations, and focusing your energy to start quickly calling in the results you want:

Step 1 – Avoiding the shit spiral.

You know what I’m talking about. That feeling you get when something happens that doesn’t feel good, then you keep dwelling on how much you hate what ever that thing is, and how bad it’s making you feel, then you feel worse, and all the while you’re beating yourself up for all the things you SHOULD be doing but can’t do because you feel bad.

Anyone? Anyone?

Yeah. Not fun. Not productive. And DEFINITELY not getting you closer to the results you want.

So what’s a girl to do? Because Lord knows le shit storms blow our way from time to time and we ain’t got time for that when we have empires to build, #amiright?

You have to start showing gratitude for the contrast.

I know. It really SUCKS about that unexpected bill popped up. Or that client who ghosted you. Or that launch that totally flopped.

But you’ve got two choices: 1) Dwell on it and, thus, bring more of it into your life because, Law of Attraction (thanks but no thanks, Universe) or 2) Be grateful for the experience because it showed you what you don’t want, thereby causing you to to ask for the result you DO want with greater clarity, which makes it manifest faster.

Now, I’m not saying that you should never feel bad. Because we all know THAT AIN’T POSSIBLE. But what I am saying is to cut it off before it hurts your momentum and pushes you further from the results you want. Remember who is in control here (hint hint: she’s the force-to-be-reckoned-with boss babe reading this right now ;)), start seeing those unwanted things/events/feelings with GRATITUDE, and trust that they are moving you closer to what you want. Bring it, shit storm.

Step 2 – Use the right tools at the right time.

You’ve heard it before: VISUALIZE the specifics of what you want, or practice AFFIRMATIONS around that subject, and you’ll be that much closer to getting it.

Weeeeeell, yes and no.

Visualizing is a really powerful tool for manifesting the results you want, BUT it only works if you’re feeling good when you do it. If you feel negative about not having something, then try to visualize or affirm your way to the thing you want, you’re inevitably going to be focused on its absence and push it further away.

Not following? Here’s an example:

Let’s say you REALLY want a new car. When you’re feeling GOOD, you can visualize the specifics of that car and imagine how great it will feel to have that car, which makes you feel even more excited about it and enhances your vibrational alignment with it.

But then the old clunker you’re currently driving breaks down, and you’re ready to set it on fire along with the mechanic who just overcharged you hundreds of dollars to fix it. If you were to do that same visualization and offer those same affirmations after that experience, all you’re going to be thinking about is how much you resent NOT having that new car RIGHT NOW< which will ultimately work against it.

You have a lot of mindset tools in your toolbox, but you have to understand that there are different tools to use for different times.

If you’ve been doing ALL the mindset work but don’t feel like it’s making a difference, or if it even makes you feel even worse sometimes, it’s because you’re using tools that don’t match up with where you are in that moment.

You ALWAYS have to start by first taking stock of how you feel. If you’re feeling resistance (negativity), then you’ll want to go back to a more general starting point (meditation) and work your way back into a good-feeling place (through something like journaling), THEN work more specific tools (like visualizing and affirmations) to fine-tune your focus.

Step 3 – Stop trying so hard.

I know, I know. If you hear ‘Let it be easy’ or ‘Just let it flow’ one more time you’re going to throw what ever pretty little device you’re reading this on out the window, right?

Now, I’m not saying that you can just lay on the couch and binge-watch Grey’s Anatomy while all the cash and clients come rollin’ in. HEY THANKS, UNIVERSE! Another box of tissues for this next episode, please.

But what I am saying is there’s a huge difference between EFFORT and INSPIRED ACTION.

Effort, in every sense of the word, indicates a level of struggle. As a living breathing human in today’s society, we really like to celebrate struggle.


But we’re taught that in order to be successful, it has to be hard. We’re taught that as long as we gave it EFFORT, we did a good job (even if we didn’t succeed).

Ever heard, “A for Effort!” or “It’s okay, at least you tried”? Don’t even get me started on participation trophies. I digress again…

Stop settling for struggle and start cultivating inspired action. Align your energy with what you want FIRST, then let the inspiration guide you through the action steps.

Taking action and waiting for inspiration to come is a recipe for burn out. Let’s be honest, no one is giving you an A for effort when you run your own business.

“Oh look at her, she works so hard” doesn’t pay the bills when you’re the CEO.

Take 15 minutes, or a day, or a week if you need to and get your mind right. Remember why you started this. Figure out what about your business excites you the most, get clear on that vision, and focus on what feels GOOD to do.

So there you have it! Three tiny but MIGHTY shifts to start focusing your mindset work with more intention, and master the art of manifesting everything you want! The quantum leaps you’ve been looking for are already on their way to you. Drop the resistance and let it ride.

Any questions? Comments? Shoot me an email and let me know how it’s going.

Onward, fire-breathers.


Before working with Sarah, my business felt stagnant. Four months later, I'm completely booked and making income I never thought I'd see from my own business. I'm finally living the life I've always dreamed of– working from home and traveling the world– and I wouldn't have been able to do it without Sarah's guidance and support.
