Manifestation tip 13: pay the price
Everything comes at a cost. Are you able or willing to pay it? If not, then is it worth desiring?
When an idea or desire forms in your mind, the first thing you need to do is assess how much work it will take to realize it.
Next, double your initial estimate to account for lowballing, then ask yourself: am I willing to do the work, am I willing to expend the energy required to manifest this?

Always vet your fleeting thoughts before upgrading them to full-fledged wants, because it makes no sense to stir up desire about something when you:
don't know what it requires to bring forth

Stop gawking at stuff out of your reach unless you are willing to stretch out, extend yourself and grab it. Either it's worth working for or it's not. Either it's worth the risk or it's not. Either you are ready to pay the price or you're not.
The price may be your money.
The price may be your relationships.
The price may be your health.
The price may be your time.
The price may be your reputation.
The price may be your dreams.
