Let’s start by doing a little calculation. You may want to do it yourself too since I am certainly not a math wiz. Anyway, how many minutes are in a day? 60 minutes in an hour x 24 hours = 1440. Now, considering we are asleep for about 440 of those minutes, let’s say we have 1000 useable ones a day.
1000 minutes seems like a lot. And it is! The problem is they don’t seem like a lot because we often don’t use them wisely. That is the key…wisely managing the time we have, no matter how little it is. I’ve shared here on more than one occasion a tip I learned about breaking the day into 15 minute chunks. 15 is a good number because you can get a significant amount done, and a short enough time that if you catch yourself after wasting a few of these blocks, you can still make it up and accomplish something.
So why am I talking about 1 minute blocks today? I was reminded about something I heard from Abraham Hicks about manifesting your desires. Abraham said that it takes only 1 minute of solid, focused visualization to begin the process of manifesting your goal. I don’t know how this number was determined, but I do know that Abraham Hicks is one of the great pros for manifesting greatness in life. As a result, I am listening to whatever is being suggested.
In thinking about this, I realize how many minutes, hours, and even days I let slip by without taking time to visualize life the way I want it to be. When we remove our focus on what our life is now and all the things we don’t want, and place it instead on what we do want our life to be, it begins to manifest into the desired state. And all it takes is a minute at a time to visualize that greatness.
I am not saying that we need to visualize and focus on every single one of these minutes. The way our human mind is wired makes this virtually impossible. However, use at least some. We have a thousand minutes a day! Even if you find it difficult, you can start with a small number. For example, start with just 10 minutes a day of solid visualization. Then as you become more proficient you can increase that time. If you stick to it, you will begin to see positive results, which will inspire you to continue. The key is staying focused on your goal, and taking small chunks of time during the day, even if those chunks are as small as a minute. It’s much better than going thousands of minutes without spending time to pray for your greatness and see it in your mind.
How many minutes will you use to build your greatness today? The answer is totally in your control. So is your wonderful future. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
