Milestone Mapping to Achieve Your Goals
What is milestone mapping and how is it better than setting goals and what does it have to do with the law of attraction?
Such a discussion....
There is much debate between proponents of goal setting and those who believe that setting goals limits the law of attraction from manifesting your dreams and desires. The thought being, that a goal puts the focus on what you don’t have but a dream causes you to visualize having what you want.
You might say, a goal is putting action to your desires whereas a dream is but a dream is but a dream, with no legs. This is where mind or milestone mapping comes into play.
Mind Maps are credited to Tony Buzan who in 1996 developed a means of note taking and brainstorming.
You may be wondering what brainstorming and note taking have to do with the law of attraction and manifesting your dreams.
We all know that in order to manifest something we first have to know what we want, which would seem to support goal setting.
Similar to a Mind Map, Milestone Mapping begins in the center with a topic, concept, goal, or dream. But that's where the similarities end. When creating your Milestone Map, you will place the focus of your desire in the center of your diagram with words, illustrations or a picture.
Unlike mind mapping where you map the direction you are going to take to accomplish your goal, with milestone mapping you are going to record events as they happen.
You are the creator of your own reality. With milestone mapping you are not pre-determining your path. You are allowing God/Universe/Source to choose the best opportunities for you to interact with universal laws.
Each time you fill in a space or record an event you are allowing and accepting the gifts sent to you which enable your dream to manifest. By allowing and accepting as you’ve created you are minimizing the barriers that block progress and success. It’s doubt and denial which cause others to question the reality of the law of attraction.
