The Power of Manifestation in Business

The Power of Manifestation in Business

Are your business intentions, dreams, beliefs and actions aligned? The power of manifestation in business enables entrepreneurs to attract opportunities, overcome challenges, and create their desired obstacles.

Let me tell you a story about this…

Through manifestation, Andrew Carnegie was able to move from extreme poverty to becoming the richest person in the world.

In 1835, Andrew Carnegie was born in Scotland. Suffice it to say, he and his family were POOR.

And not just that. They lived in a typical weaver’s cottage. It had only one main room, shared by the Carnegies and the neighbouring family. It served as the bedroom, living room, and dining room.

The Carnegies were struggling to make ends meet. They borrowed money from a relative and migrated to the U.S.

But, they didn’t get the American dream they expected. Their hardships continued.

In 1848, Andrew got a job as a bobbin’ boy at a cotton mill. He worked 12  hours a day, 6 days a week, which earned him just $1.20.

And in 1849, his hard work finally started paying off. He was promoted from telegraph messenger to operator. Eventually, he was appointed superintendent of the Pittsburgh division.

Carnegie bought shares at Adams Express Company, risking everything the family had. And the bold move paid off. The dividends paid off, and he invested more.

In 1892, he found the Carnegie Steel Company. He was able to dominate the industry and acquire his massive wealth.

At the time of his death, he was considered the wealthiest man in the world.

What was Andrew’s Secret?

If you’ve been here for a while, you know that I absolutely love the work of Napoleon Hill.

Interestingly, Andrew Carnegie actually commissioned Napoleon Hill to write about The Law of Success. 

This book was later ‘watered down’ and released as the now famous book “Think and grow rich.”

In the book, Napoleon reveals Andrew’s biggest secret.

It’s simple – the law of attraction, otherwise known as positive manifestation.

He wrote that the purpose of his life is to amass a fortune.

In one lecture, he said that the only thing we have control over is our minds. And beyond that, we can direct our minds to get what we want.

He went on to add that what the mind feeds upon it will attract.

Lastly, Carnegie explained how anyone can obtain wealth and success. He referred, again and again, to “the secret” of prosperity and abundance. Not multiple secrets but THE Secret.

How to Get Anything You Want From Life

There’s a really famous book (and documentary) called “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne.

And in this production, they reveal the greatest secret – the law of attraction.

These are the 3 things you can do to manifest and get anything you want from life:

1. Ask For What You Want

When we were kids, most of us knew exactly what we wanted. Whether it was a trip or a pack of sweets, answering that question was easy.

If you were asked, “What do you aspire to be in the future?” you probably had an answer too.

But as we grew older, the dreams simply became vague. Life became busy, and we nearly forgot our dreams and goals.

The first step to positive manifestation is to ask. This involves simply making a decision.

Ask, not just with words, but also with thoughts and actions.

What do you really want? Sit down and write it all down. Explain how you want your life to be.

“Place your order with the universe.”

How do you ask for what you want?

  • Describe it In Detail

If you want to tap into the power of manifestation, you have to describe what you want in detail. This could be by writing it down or saying it out loud. You could also put pictures of what you want on a board that you look at regularly (i.e a vision board)

I highly recommend writing it down. Putting pen to paper allows us to clarify our intentions, solidify our desires, and harness the power of manifestation. 

By documenting our goals and aspirations, we enhance focus, activate the subconscious mind, and open ourselves to a world of possibilities

  • Work For It

A lot of people believe that manifestation is all about dreaming and nit doing anything about it. That’s not how it works. Remember the saying “Luck is when opportunity meets preparedness?”

Start working for what you want, and let the opportunity meet you prepared.

2. Believe That You Will Achieve It

In order for you to manifest anything you want, you have to truly believe that it is actually possible.

In the book “The Secret” Rhonda Byrne says that the hows are the domains of the universe.

So, don’t be afraid to dream big just because it seems impossible. Just do it. 

To fully believe that you will achieve your wildest dreams, you need to:

  • Use Affirmations

Affirmations are a great way to help you to form new beliefs. And once you do this, you are rocketing towards the manifestation of your desire.

  • Visualise

Visualisation is a really powerful tool. 

When you picture yourself with your desire, your subconscious mind does not know whether you are simply imagining this manifestation or whether it is real.

Your subconscious mind forms a belief that you already have it. And it begins to manifest in your life.

Visualisation is all about aligning yourself with your dreams. So if you want to really manifest your dreams, your actions and thoughts must be in alignment with your beliefs.

3. Receive

This last step is really interesting – Receive what you ask for.

For manifestation to work, you have to open yourself up to the feeling that comes with it.

You have to simply feel good so you can receive more good.

Here are two ways to do receive what you asked for

  • Be Receptive

Receiving is all about being open, receptive, and in alignment with the desires we have manifested.

Being receptive completes the cycle of manifestation and allows us to enjoy the fruits of our intentions and efforts.

  • Gratitude

In order to receive what you asked for, you have to act like you already have. And one powerful way to get yourself to feel good is through gratitude.

It’s simple, really.

Be truly grateful for all that you have. You will find yourself happier than you’ve ever been before. And as a consequence, you will manifest everything you have ever dreamed of.


“As a man thinketh, so is he.”

This is the power of manifestation – when done correctly, it can help you to transform your wildest dreams into reality.

In Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote that “The starting point of all achievement is desire.” Strong desire and genuine belief (not to be confused with mere hoping or wishing) tricks the subconscious mind into transmuting these thoughts into reality.

The 3 ways to get anything you want in life are:

  1. Ask for what you want
  2. Believe that you will achieve it
  3. Receive it

In The Secret, Michael B. Beckwith says, “I’ve seen kidneys regenerated, I’ve seen cancer resolve, and I’ve seen eyesight improved.”

To conclude this blog, I encourage each and every one of you to read the book “The Secret” or watch its documentary on Netflix. It will change your life, and you will truly be able to see the power of positive manifestation in business.
