If you feel like you’ll never make it because…

  1. There are already people doing what you want to do, or…
  2. You don’t think the pie is big enough for everyone, or…
  3. You believe there’s too much competition for you to succeed…

Then you’re going to love Manifestation Secret #1.

Because once you understand (and start living by) this simple and counterintuitive truth, you’ll stop being burdened by the fear of lack and limitation, and instead become inspired to map out your own personal path to greatness and success.

It’s one of my favorite Manifestation Secrets of all because it’s truly the secret of abundance.

Once you start believing it, you’ll begin to recognize the inherent abundance in everything you do and finally start clearing a path to attract even more of it to your life.

I bet you’re aching to find out what the secret is.

So without further ado, let me introduce to you…

Manifestation Secret #1: Nobody has to lose in order for you to win.

Sounds a bit counterintuitive, right?

I mean, how are you supposed to win if somebody else doesn’t lose?

To most people, a statement like that just doesn’t make any sense.

And therein lies the problem.

See, when someone wants to try something new, they’re often met with a lot of resistance. And much of that resistance actually comes from themselves — more specifically, their own demoralizing internal dialogue.

“Why would anyone want to listen to me over someone else?”

“How will I ever succeed when there’s so much competition out there?”

“The pie just isn’t big enough for everyone…”

And on and on turns the wheel of torture.

Does any of that sound familiar?

Because if so, I want you to understand something very, very important…

None of it is true. Absolutely none of it.

People DO want to listen to you.

Competition should NEVER hold you back.

And the pie has ALWAYS been big enough for EVERYONE. Period.

The problem is…

You’ve been conditioned to believe otherwise.

You’ve been groomed to think in terms of “winners” and “losers” — and as a result, you carry that philosophy with you everywhere you go.

That ends today.

Because in order to live an abundant life, you have to get rid of that “lack” mentality first — that same mentality that tells you “It’s us versus them!” and puts a stake between you and someone else.

Regardless of competition…

There is always room for you to succeed, even when it doesn’t feel like it.

Because here’s the thing…

No one shares your exact same perspective.

No one brings your unique flavors to the table.

And not a soul on earth is exactly the same as yours.

Because of that…

… there will always be a place for YOU and your individual talents.

So I’ll say it again…

No one has to lose in order for you to win.

Understand that and you’ll be well on your way to a happy, fulfilling, rewarding, and abundant life.

Halt right there!
