"I want" to "I am"

This is the transition that produces results in life.

Anisa Aven notes in one of her newsletters,
When we focus on what we want, what we desire, we send forth an energetic signal that is creative. However, that signal is not vibrationally aligned with what we say we want but instead it is aligned with 'the longing' for what we want. Desire is a descending emotion filled with longing, an intense wish for something that we feel separate from.

It's the experience of separation that prevents us from intentionally creating. As long as we feel separate from the essence of our desire, we vibrate in opposition to it.

"You can't have what you want." - God, in A Conversation with God by Neale Donald Walsch

You have to change your 'wanting' to 'accepting'.

"I want" to "I am".

So what does it mean?

If you have been wanting to start something, don't wait. Start it today.

If you have been thinking about having something, break it down into actionable steps and take the first step today.

It is critical to start taking the first step as soon as possible because if you don't, you remain in the "I want" mode and the longer you are there, you are distancing yourself from that you want.
But if you take even a small step, you already are and it just requires practice and tweaking to get to your want.

Say, you want to be a marathon runner one day, if you get up and start jogging today and cover a mile in 15 minutes, you already are a runner and you are much closer to getting there than sitting on the couch and wanting.

Taking the plunge today, even if it is a baby step, is extremely important as it means
"You already are" and not a hopeful anymore. You may fail, face roadblocks but you are a lot closer to what you wanted at one point.

When you say "I want" you are taking yourself out of the playing field whereas "I am" puts you right into it.

"I want" is inaction and "I am" is taking action. Actions shift your state of the mind and your beliefs which are what are required for manifesting.

You need the "I want" thoughts to know your desires which is the starting point. Once you are convinced of having it, move to "I am" thoughts. They help you internalize that you want.

You may not be able to completely avoid the "I want" thoughts as you
are marching toward your goal, but the more you shift your focus on
where you are, accept it and do what you can at this moment, you will be manifesting in no time.

Sample progression from a "want" to "having" it.
