This is your opening statement in your OP in the IM forum. That's why I keep responding to you from that perspective. I'm not saying to just drop your income producing work, unless there is a very strong inspiration to do so, or if you're forced to do that as it sometimes happens in the process of manifestation. Add to your work/action the vivid imagination and certainty of the outcome you desire, not the process. Trust that it's done and do not bother with when or how.
Let me change to a different approach. This is what I often advice those who sought it: examine all your easy successes and all your hard earned failures. However, instead of looking at the external factors, look into your mindset, emotions, and feelings in each case and try to find the commonalities. Your goal, I hope, is to replicate your feelings when you were achieving your easy successes and avoid those during the long hard downward spirals. You might have been very lucky at a certain project but it was the state of your mind that drew the luck, so you met the right people at the right time at the right place. Vice versa for the hard earned failures.
It does take faith, belief, and confidence, which was why I suggested you try to manifest something unimportant to you that you wouldn't be attached to or put up resistence against. Successes at these experiments would raise your level of faith and trust so you can apply the process to the important issues in your life.
