Suppose the day has come – finally – when you know your career dreams are manifesting into reality. There are no more doubts that you have “done the work,”  and now it is time to accept your evolved and professionally-actualized self.

Psychologists have long attested that the process of self-actualization occurs when all components of development and existence collide to form the perfect opportunity for one to become who he or she was innately meant to be – mentally, physically and emotionally.

It is well understood that the process of accepting a surreal professional actualization may be overwhelming; it may even take your breath away. You are the resulting embodiment of your blood, sweat, and tears: your hard work. So, what does that mean precisely, and what exactly does that look like?

The key of the glory is to flow with what you have fundamentally intended. Move in tandem with the energy of being the success you are. You set and worked toward the intention of succeeding, and you have done just that. Congratulations.

The proof is “in the pudding,” and you could not have made it happen if you weren’t fully capable of triumph. Don’t underestimate your strengths any longer, and put your vulnerable insecurities to bed. Indeed, you must be responsible for yourself to know your human limitations, but  – note to you – beyond infinity is your limit.

Savor and appreciate your moments of manifestation, while going beyond them, by employing the following strategies:

#1 Don’t Discount the Power of a Vision Board.

Perpetuate and further develop your business and personal objectives by using a vision board. Vision boards, literal areas where you display specific images or scenes of the objects or lifestyle of your desires, are amazing tools for assisting one’s brain in visualizing the career, lifestyle, and personal goals of his/her dreams.

They are extremely powerful in attracting the desires of your attention, but they help in generating new aspirations, too! As long as you truly believe that you can accomplish or attain whatever those visions are, you can bring them to life! Your visual images posted to the board should be placed in a prominent spot for daily viewing, and you should mentally stay in the space of believing for bigger and better experiences and expressions of who you essentially strive to be.

#2 Dress and Act How You Wish to Become.

Live impeccably in all facets of your career development and organization. Support your professional victories by utilizing great marketing and branding techniques–consistently present yourself in the most desirable way to communicate that you are extraordinary! It’s perfectly okay to advertise your entire professional skillset, so please do. Reside in the successful frame of mind. Dress for success. Plan like a boss!

Stay on top of the savvy business trends, and by all means, remain grounded. Keep a strong team of like-spirited individuals around you to support and hold you accountable for being balanced and ethical in your pursuit of continued success.

#3 Never Be Too Arrogant to Be Advised.

Be confident but remain humble, heeding the advice of sage professionals who’ve paved the way in your specific arena of success. Sound business advice helps you to navigate the scene in your field of expertise.

Once you’ve “arrived”–which there’s absolutely no such thing, by the way–is certainly not the time to acknowledge others’ golden nuggets of advice and experience that have been shared to you beforehand. Let their pitfalls be your prep notes. Take the wisdom of others’ mistakes and advice, and allow the information to show you how to become the best version of yourself!

#4 Encourage & Feed Others From Your Fruit.

Serve as an asset to your circle of existence. Now that you have brought your initial business dreams to fruition, you are in a fantastic vantage point to inspire and encourage others to do the same. Become a strong asset to your business circle, community, family, etc., and lead by example. Help those who need guidance, and give back abundantly by means of mentoring and volunteerism.

#5 Know That You Have Always Deserved It.

Accept your mantle of greatness. Know that you do deserve to succeed! While some (or many, depending upon how many competitors you have) may have spoken negatively over your dreams and goals throughout your professional journey, brush the dirt off of your shoulders and walk bravely into your destiny.

If you’ve enduringly burned the midnight oil and made the sacrifices, then bask in the shine of success! It is yours for the taking. Ultimately, congratulations are in order for your professional manifestations! You have bravely maneuvered the endeavor of determination that so many have continually forfeited through lack of faith in themselves. Gratefully (and gracefully) assume your seat at the proverbial table.

Job well done, my friend!
