Manifestation Goals Examples – How to Write Goals for Manifesting Your Dreams

After I wrote my guide on manifestation goals vs. traditional goal-setting, many of my readers reached out to me and wanted to learn more about how to write goals for manifestation. So that’s why I want to share some manifestation goals examples with you.

But I go even further because today I let you in on a big secret…

In my advanced manifestation method – the one I share in my bestseller “Become the CEO of Your Dream Life” – I teach three different law of attraction goals to use because all of them have a different purpose in the manifestation process (and different subconscious triggers).

And using all three of them makes all the difference!

Want to learn the specific goals for manifestation I use? Then read on.


  • Manifestation goals differ from traditional goal-setting and play a crucial role in manifesting your dreams. They align with your subconscious mind and the law of attraction, setting the stage for your manifestations to become reality.

  • When writing manifestation goals, ensure they are clear, specific, positive, and time-bound. This way, it’s easier to communicate your desires to your subconscious mind.

  • You need three different manifestation goal types, all having a different subconscious trigger. Here are the three manifestation goal examples: breakthrough goals, result goals, and process goals.

How to Write Manifestation Goals – the Right Way

If you’re stuck in the pattern of not accomplishing your deepest desires and not manifesting your dreams, you need to know what types of goals to set.

Setting goals that are aligned with your subconscious mind and the law of attraction is key for your manifestations to actually happen.

After all, manifestation goal-setting is the first step in how to manifest.

Without getting clear about what you want and, more importantly, why you want it, you’ll just stay where you are. That’s why understanding how to write goals for manifestation is key.

Make your manifestation goals:

  • Clear and easy to understand: You need to communicate your manifestation goals to your subconscious mind, so the clearer they are, the easier it gets.

  • Specific: The more specific and detailed your goal is, the easier it is for your subconscious mind to focus on it. (If you struggle with this, check out these manifestation questions you can ask to find out what you want.)

    Extra Tip: if you can’t be specific, then try to concentrate on the emotions you want to experience. Let’s say you want to manifest your dream home but don’t know what it should look like. Then, think about how you want to feel when walking into the door.

  • Positive: Because your subconscious mind can’t really distinguish between right and wrong, it’s best to formulate the goals you want to manifest in positive language.

    Extra Tip: when you say “don’t,” you probably got that wrong. Want to manifest better health? Do not say, “I don’t want to be sick,” but instead, “I want to be healthy.”

  • Time-bound: Not because you want to get it exactly then (after all, the universe loves speed and will get your dream when it’s right for you), but a timeframe helps to make the goal more specific.

    Extra tip: A timeframe adds urgency to your manifestation goals, and that’s a powerful signal to your subconscious.

  • Written down: Add a powerful subconscious trigger to manifesting goals by writing them down.

    Extra tip: Handwriting can strengthen this effect even further.

  • Aligned: Ensure that your goals align with your intentions and your subconscious beliefs. That’s when true manifestation can happen.

When you learn how to go after your dreams by setting the right types of goals, you become unstoppable. You feel motivated and excited to get up every day and start working on your dream life.

And that’s an important point many fail to teach when it comes to manifestation.

This is not just about wishful thinking. Your dreams will not magically appear just because you write your goals on a piece of paper. Your manifestation will come true when YOU make it happen.

When you take inspired action, and to be able to do so, you need three very specific manifestation goals.

3 Manifestation Goals Examples That Work

Every time I see a manifestation coach write about how to set smart goals for manifestation, I think only one thing: “Just why?”

Don’t get me wrong. There is a place for traditional goal-setting methods such as SMART goals. These types of goals are perfect in project management, where you want to achieve (small) specific outcomes.

But this is NOT what manifestation is all about; this is your dream life in the making. This is where you want to make a quantum leap towards a goal that is life-changing.

And that’s where you should dare to dream big.

So here are the kind of goals you really want to set for yourself. Actually, the ONLY 3 types of manifestation goals you’ll ever need again…

Here is a quick overview of how to set manifestation goals

Manifestation Goal Type 1 – Breakthrough Goals

Breakthrough goals are the very BIG manifesting goals. They are the ones that get you inspired and put you into a state of hope.

When manifesting, you need to set big enough goals that are outside of your current reality so that you feel the excitement to keep working on them.

Goals that are too small do not provide enough stimulation to get you moving. Even if you think your goals are out of reach at this point, you need to have a powerful motivator to put you into motion.

You also need to find out WHY you want to achieve these goals.

The more positive outcomes you can link to your goal, the more likely you will be to follow through. And your WHY is the real driving force behind the manifestation of your goals.

It’s the acknowledgment of who you will become and how you will change in the process of achieving your goals. 

You would want to look at all of the ways this could impact your life positively.

What would hitting that goal mean for you?
How would you feel when you get there?
How would this make you a different person?

The more ways you can make this positive for yourself, the more motivated you will be.

When you set this type of manifestation goal, you want to act from the position of a dreamer, and you want to dream big.

Manifestation Goal Type 2 – Result Goals

Your result goals stem directly from your big goals.

Where your breakthrough goal may state that you want to have total financial freedom, your result goal would put a number and a date on it. 

That’s where you take your big dream and turn it into an actual achievable goal. It’s still a big one, but it becomes more specific with numbers, timelines, and actual outcomes.

They are like the milestones between where you are now and where you want to go (your big dream).

These goals are so important because they give you an actual feeling of accomplishment. They also talk directly into your beliefs, showing your subconscious that it is actually possible.

Making your manifestation goals time-bound forces your subconscious mind to start to figure out ways to achieve them. It will begin to point out to you new opportunities and avenues that will lead you to your desired outcome.

That leads you to the final step: process goals.

Manifestation Goal Type 3 – Process Goals

Your process goals are the most short-term and simplified version and are the actions you take to manifest anything you want.

They are the daily and weekly steps you need to take to reach your results and breakthrough goals.

When you set your result goals, you will then break them down into actionable steps that you can work on consistently to move towards achievement. 

Process goals look different for every result, but they will all be things you can do right now or very shortly.

Whatever it is that you need to do to get closer to your desired outcome, you will put into your process goals. 

Process goals also work to give you extra positivity when you need it.

By actually completing things and seeing that you are making progress, you create a positive feedback loop that helps you keep going.

You can feel yourself changing and growing in the process, and this is incredibly motivating as you start to see physical changes in your life. You need to make sure that you are consistent with setting your process goals and marking them off. 

This type of manifestation goal is also how you inspire action. And inspired action is what ultimately drives your manifestation success.

Turn Your Manifestation Goals Into Action

Inspired action comes from your subconscious, but it’s you who has to trigger them. And you do so by:

1. Reprogram your subconscious so that it aligns with your goal.

2. Take consistent action (in the form of process goals) that leads to more and bigger action. And ultimately to inspired actions.

The best goal-setting process is nothing when you don’t take action on your goals. And it’s no different with manifestation goals.

So, if this is something you would like to get more help with, I have a little gift for you.
