Should I be realistic?

by Pernille Madsen

Mansion“should I be realistic in my asking?” is a question I often hear from my coaching clients, when we talk about their desires.

Actually, they often put it a bit differently, as in:

“But I should also be realistic, right?”

And my answer always is this:

“No, you should not be realistic, not at all!” 

Even if that is what most of us were taught!!!

And I do admit that it is not always easy to not be realistic.

However, the only thing that happens, when you try to be realistic, is that you limit yourself, and I see no reason whatsoever to do that!

So I would recommend that you simply pretend that EVERYTHING is possible. There are no limitations at all; you get to pick and choose. How does your life look, if you dare dream big?

Pretty amazing, right?  :)

This is something that I definitely needed to see today! I have set some high goals for myself and some would say that these goals are too high or too impossible but I chose not to believe them. I remember a lttle while back when I was searching online about manifesting a billion dollars and from what I read it say that even that is possible and that you are only limited by you!

Again, thank you for re-assuring me that all things are possible

Martina, I believe that if you can think it, you can have it – unless you don’t believe it is possible! And I agree that your only limitation is you!

Those who say your goals are too high or impossible are probably well meaning and trying to be helpful…. and they probably don’t know about deliberate creation and the law of attraction ;-)

Thanks for reading and especially for commenting :-)

Hello, this one is really helpful. I see miracles everywhere because I have seen worse once and now I’m thankful for every moment of my life. But I feel crazy and unrealistic sometimes when I was expecting something to happen.

To many being realistic means to carry on their  negative limiting beliefs in their imagination  . I believe when you are asking the universe you should just leave your limiting beliefs aside and be as demanding as you possibly can .

It is a very good idea indeed, to leave your limiting beliefs aside as much as you possible can.
