'Manifesting' our dreams - getting what we really want from our lives is challenging to everyone, especially so for women. In this article Susan James teaches us that we need skills to succeed in our lives, and we need to practice those skills 'to move up the ladder'.


How to Win at Manifesting: (The Tennis Ladder)
- Careers and Goals

(by Susan James)

We all want to win. Some of us have a passion for winning. Winning does not have to mean competition. It can simply mean, we get what we want, and we know we will get what we want. We win our lives the way we want them to be.

How do we win the big prizes? You know those prizes. The ones that seem just out of our reach, but we think of them often. We want to win those prizes.

Here's how it works:

In high school, I was on the tennis team, and there was a tennis ladder.

We all want to win.

This ladder had all of us who were on the team placed on this ladder. Usually the coach puts you where he/she think you are skill wise. If you want to move up that ladder, then you have to challenge the person in the rung above you for their position. You have to beat them out of their place on the ladder. You have to win at being who you are.

Apparently my coach didn't think I was extremely skilled. I wasn't on the bottom of the ladder thankfully; I was put in the position of #1 Doubles Team at the beginning of the season. If I wanted to move from there, then I was the one that would have to do the moving.

That's not last, but it's not what I wanted, and I knew I was *better* than that. I wanted to be a *singles* player.

In order to do that I was going to have to challenge my best friend. Telling your best friend that you think you can beat her, and want to beat her out of her place is actually harder than the skill needed to win the tennis match. (Especially when you are in high school.) But I knew I could beat her. And so I did. I won.

Just as in tennis,
we have to practice the
skill in order to
move up the ladder.

This moved me up to the next skill level. I was now 3rd singles. I felt like I could beat the 2nd singles girl, but I was not so sure about the girl in the #1 slot. Nope, she was very, very, skilled in the game of tennis. She was better than me, and I knew it. I wasn't at her skill level *yet*.

In order for us to win at manifesting, meaning we really get what we want, because we used the skills to get us there faster and better, then we have to choose our goals/intentions to get us there.

In tennis, it's the next person above you on the ladder. In manifesting skillfully, it's the next level of understanding the mechanics of atomic light energy and applying it to our lives.

Just as in tennis, we have to practice the skill in order to move up the ladder. In manifesting successfully, it's the same thing. We have to practice the skills that bring us our stuff.

The real challenge has been, is that people have been naive in understanding how things work. And only those willing to accept that there is skill to this manifesting stuff, will they then begin to develop the skills and move up the manifesting ladder and be the star players on the manifesting team.
