Step 1: Make a list of what you want and why. Clearly define your goals or desired outcomes. Get dreamy with this part of the process. Go big. Be truthful. Want what you really, really want.
Step 2: Choose the priority goal. I recommend working one "big" goal at a time. To determine if a goal is really a priority use this process:
Ask yourself: What area of my life is causing me the most hardship or discomfort at this time in my life?
My rule is: Only focus on working on what is causing you the most pain/shame/worry/doubt/sadness/anger/discomfort/stress/anxiety.
Then ask yourself: What hardship or discomfort is most easily remedied? (Trust your intuitive answer, because your ego will lead you to believe that everything is sooo difficult.)
My rule is: Fix what is easily fixable first.
I know what you're thinking, "Amy, if it were easy then I would have already manifested it." No, you wouldn't have, my love.
We naturally tend to give our attention to what is most pressing in our lives at any given time. What was painful two years ago is probably not what's pressing today. While the "right now" goal may have been on your list of goals a year ago, it may not have been the true priority at that time.
Asking these questions of yourself will allow you to get most clear on what matters most to you at this time. Work on the goal that is most pressing RIGHT NOW. This is the key to manifesting your dream, quickly and easily. Choose the goal you can't go another year without achieving. The goal that would most make you feel like a loser if you didn't achieve it.
I know this part of the process may seem really negative, but it's actually very, very positive. When you get clear on what you want the most, you will rapidly get unstuck, easily move away from distractions and energy drains and tap into your most powerful source of motivation, drive and focus. Use your pain as fuel.
Step 3: Determine your ideal date to reach this goal and write it down. Please know that your date just creates a timeframe for which you will be working on the goal. It just serves as a marker on your journey. The date is more for you, than the Universe. Spirit is in charge of the actual timing, so stay open to Divine perfect timing. (I promise it will happen sooner than you'd think.)
Step 4: Say a prayer and ask Spirit to intuitively show you the exact actions to take. Your action plan may be revealed all at once, but for most of us it is intuitively piecemealed over a period of time. As you take one step, a new action will be revealed. Stay open to receiving this wisdom from the Divine. This is what it means to take inspired or intuitively-driven action.
Again, you can only really give your full attention to one big goal at a time. When something is not a priority goal the steps to achieve it will seem vague, unclear and DIFFICULT. You just won't feel like you can get it done any time soon (which only make you feel worse).
Intuitively, you know what matters most to you right now, once you decide to give your full attention to it, the action steps will be crystal clear (and easy) and they will seem "inspired".
Step 5: Track the actions you take toward achieving your goal. This can be done in a journal or on a calendar. Be sure to include a date so that you can hold yourself accountable to taking action on a consistent bases. Aim to take steps toward your goal either daily or weekly. The more action you take, the closer you will be. Give yourself a reward each step of the way. Even just a little self-praise will keep you positively moving forward.
I want to be really clear here: This process only works on your truest goal at any given time. The truest goal is usually what you take for granted or assume it will happen, "when it happens". Don't leave what is most sacred to you to chance, my love. Put your whole heart into your life. If you are working a goal that is not in alignment with your life right now, you can take every action in the world and never really feel like you are getting closer to your desired outcome. (Because it is just a distraction to avoid dealing with your fears.)
When you focus on what matters, you will discover a new level of happiness even before your actual outcome is manifested.
Hint: If you're not happy while you're taking action, then it's probably not your truest goal. This is how you'll know that you are on the right track. You will feel good because you will actually be treating, alleviating and healing what is causing you the most pain and suffering. And that is all you need to be really focused on anyway. When you focus on what matters right now, your manifesting process will be so much easier and way more fun.
Quick example: My last semester of college at USC I was so focused on getting into an Ivy League MFA theatre program, that I didn't give my full attention to actually finishing my undergrad degree. As a result, I received a "No Pass" in a required course and had to go back the following semester to retake the class. To add fuel to this point, turns out I didn't even want to get a MFA in theatre! I was only focused on that particular outcome because I was so uncomfortable with the unknown of life after college.
Learn from my mistakes, my love. Focus on what matters most to you right now. I promise you will get to all the other stuff on your list at the Divine perfect time.

Why You're Struggling to Stay Motivated (and How to End the Struggle)
If you enjoy Intuitive Coaching with Amy Radio, please consider writing a review on iTunes for the show. Your ratings and reviews matter! Not only does it help new listeners decide whether to tune in, but ratings and reviews are how iTunes ranks my show. My goal is to reach 100K listens this year, so I sincerely appreciate you tuning in.
What I'm Reading this Week:
I've been reading Danielle LaPorte's truthbombs on the truthbomb app. These little nuggets of wisdom keep me inspired and consciously expanding. I saw Danielle speak last Friday in SF at a YogaLive event and her authenticity was absolutely luminous. You can find truthbombs all over social media or simply go to her site (click the link above).
My Spiritual Practice this Week:
Over the last week, I've been praying my version of the Prayer of Jabez. I just look up at the sky and say "Bless us, Lord."
The actual Prayer of Jabez is: "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested, (1 Chronicles 4:9-10).
If you want to learn more about how to use the Jabez prayer, I strongly recommend the book, The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson. It is a short, fast and insightful read.
Intuitive Coaching Message for this Week:
The Journey. You will see that every challenge you face has a hidden gift inside. Look for the light no matter how dark the circumstances may seem.

This message comes to you to let you know that you are on the right path and every hardship you face is just a part of the process. Have faith in your journey. (Spirit is so cool.
