We’ve all got dreams, right?
Maybe you want to change the world, maybe you want to build the home of your dreams, or maybe you want a boat!
Whatever it may be, it could seem surprisingly daunting to seriously try achieving these.
So I set out to write an article going over what (exactly) differentiates being a simple dreamer and dreams coming true!

To answer this question, we’ve got to dig deep.
Really, really deep.
The truth is, there just isn’t a straightforward answer.
However, there are two common factors that are the most important aspects of achieving anything.
Those factors are manifestation and action.
Manifesting For Dreams To Come True
As it turns out, Walt Disney’s famous quote: “If You Can Dream it, You Can Do It” is more real than you might have thought!
Seriously, this is one of the main aspects of the law of attraction.
To make dreams come true (assuming they respect the laws of the universe, you know), you’ve really got to do three things:
- Dream It
- Manifest It
- Take Action to Receive It
The first step is already done!
Great! That’s one-third of the battle.
Now, manifestation is a little bit more complex, but it’s really the deciding point where dreamers either stay dreamers or become achievers.
Believe it or not, step 2 is where the change happens, not step 3.
Manifestation is essentially the transition of a thought from the ethereal plane of mind to the physical plane of existence.
As odd as it sounds, manifestation is indeed very real.
I know it seems mystical and maybe a little… Unrealistic, but the way it happens isn’t as literal as just making your dreams “pop” into existence, the universe still has laws after all.
Manifestation happens by aligning yourself with a series of events that bring you exactly what you want.
You absolutely have to keep your eyes on the prize if you want to successfully manifest something into reality.
This goes for anything from a raise to a new dream home and more.
There’s no limit to what you can manifest. Humans are amazing like that! Any dream can come true.
Next up is step 3…
Taking Action For Dreams To Come True
You’ve got to have goals, and you’ve got to get in the right mindset so the law of attraction is making you manifest those goals into a reality.
Now, if you’re already manifesting, you might be wondering… Why do you need to take action?
I don’t blame you, I had the same exact thought, I was at a point where I was journaling and manifesting vividly, but I wasn’t getting any results! Well, until I listened to an audiobook of Wallace D. Wattles’ The Science of Getting Rich. Listen to it on Youtube for free!
In his work, Wattles describes a concept that really made it all “click” for me.
The truth is, the universe can only do so much.
It’s been a while, but I think the example he used was something along the lines of this, (check it out in his original work of course):
If you really wanted something, say a sewing machine, and you held that thought vividly in your mind (manifestation!), a series of events would unfold to deliver that very sewing machine of your dreams straight to you. However, if you don’t have the money to afford it when it shows itself to you, it’s your loss.
In other words, you have to take action to make sure that whenever your dream does show up, you’re ready.
The Key: Unwavering Faith
I mentioned earlier that the hard part isn’t actually taking action, although it isn’t easy.
The reality is, consistently manifesting requires an unwavering faith that whatever your dream is, it’s on it’s way to you.
If your faith weakens over time, your manifesting will weaken too!
Of course, this could ruin all that action you’re taking…
Let’s step back for a second here. I know I’m heavily pushing on the importance of faith, but don’t take it from me! Take it from none other than Martin Luther King Jr. himself:
“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.
So have faith
Believe that your dreams are manifesting into reality as you’re reading this very post.
Don’t let negativity get to you. Go on and get ready to welcome such amazing things into your life!
