This is a regularly made statement. However, when someone then says "I want to be x, have y and do z." there is most of the time an addendum that goes something like this: "You don't really want x, y and z, you just want the feeling of x, y and z and focusing on x, y and z is focusing on the how to have those feelings, so just feel x, y and z and let the universe come up with a way to support those feelings." I don't actually dispute that we want things for the feeling they inspire in us. But the things inspire those feelings for a reason. Is "you can be, do and have whatever you want" an accurate statement, or just a convenient lie made to get people to listen to the idea that "You can feel whatever you want, or at least feel good, even without x, y and z"? If I can have x, y and z, why can't I have the feeling of x, y and z by simply having x, y and z?
As a follow up question to those that answer yes, how do I believe that I can be, do and have what I want to be, do and have?
I was thinking yesterday about how our beliefs are shaped. Basically there are two main forces, personal experience and second-hand experience. Things you know because you experienced and things you know because other people that you trust claim to have experienced. You may not trust a random person on the street 100% but you trust that person 1%, so if you see 50 such people saying the same thing, you get into the space of believing the thing is more likely to be true than not, assuming there aren't people saying the opposite that you trust more. So there is a kind of web of beliefs in society; I've never seen an atom but I assume, based on how widespread and unchallenged the notion is, that atoms exist. If I question a physics teacher about atoms he responds in a matter of fact way, while Law of Attraction teachers are fairly evasive (see first paragraph for an example of what I mean). This is why I found Neville more helpful than Abraham, he spoke in a matter of fact way and told stories while Esther doesn't even let people finish their questions and focuses on redefining everything. It is easier for me to trust a man that claims to have experienced scripture than a man that claims to be speaking for an alien from the future. So to say "watch this video from Bashar" is not helpful because I don't really have much trust in Daryl Anka. In fact, Neville's stories are the main thing that built up enough trust in him to not ignore what he was saying.
No, for you personally, you can't be, do or have whatever you want. Why? Because you don't really believe it, you don't really believe you can. You're stuck in doubt. And then the question arises: So what if I'm a doubting Thomas?
To really answer that you have to reach the level of understanding about the nature of personal existence and how you flow experience to you. I've read many Neville books, so I know that he explains many of the same things as Abraham and Bashar - belief, imagination, feeling etc, but apparently you 'don't get it' no matter the source.
You see, without belief you won't allow yourself to experience whatever you say you desire, you'll just flounder right where you are. While feelings/emotion activates the vibration of that which you most believe to be true, without belief you won't reach the necessary sweet spot and actually bring your desire into your physical experience.
And what is doubt if not a belief in its opposite? When you oscillate back and forth between believing in something and doubting something, you remain where you are because your belief is not solid, so your experience of reality doesn't seem to change much. Another way of saying this is: There is only YES in the language of the Universe. By paying attention to what's wanted you're saying 'give me more of that.' By paying attention to what's unwanted you're saying 'give me more of that.'
Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting that you blindly believe anyone or anything that anyone says at face value, that's called gullibility. The point is that it's so obvious to me and so many others now that if it feels right to you, then you have to stop doubting and 'just do it.'

Here is the Neville Goddard quoted @ flowsurfer , for my comment attached to @Monty Riviera's answer
“In the beginning was the word.” Now, this very second, is the ‘beginning’ spoken of. It is the beginning of an urge – a desire. ‘The word’ is the desire swimming around in your consciousness – seeking embodiment. The urge of itself has no reality, For, “I AM” or the awareness of being is the only reality. Things live only as long as I AM aware of being them; so to realize one’s desire, the second line of this first verse of John must be applied.
That is, “And the word was with God.” The word, or desire, must be fixed or united with consciousness to give it reality. The awareness becomes aware of being the thing desired, thereby nailing itself upon the formor conception – and giving life unto its conception – or resurrecting that which was heretofore a dead or unfulfilled desire. “Two shall agree as touching anything and it shall be established on earth.”This agreement is never made between two persons. It is between the awareness and the thing desired. You are now conscious of being, so you are actually saying to yourself, without using words, “I AM.”
Now, if it is a state of health that you are desirous of attaining, before you have any evidence of health in your world, you begin to FEEL yourself to be healthy. And the very second the feeling “I AM healthy” is attained the two have agreed. That is, I AM and health have agreed to be one and this agreement ever results in the birth of a child which is the thing agreed upon – in this case, health. And because I made the agreement I express the thing agreed."
Here is the link to the book , I'm gonna suggest you read it then re-read it and really let it soak in it's 18 pages and in the big picture time taken to read will be just a Blip on the radar .Good Luck with your journey :-)
There's nothing to add to Eddie's brilliant answer, but if I had read it a couple of years ago I would not have understood the truth of it...
So I'll try and explain the "just do it" in my words, perhaps it helps you.
Belief, or rather: trust without doubt, means realizing that you are already and have already all you want or need, and that you need to do nothing "in order to get what you want".
This realization turns around completely the way you think about yourself and of course others as well, and it leads you to the serene, even-minded and relaxed attitude in which inspiration shows you exactly what to do next.
The big problem for me was (and occasionally still is [stubborn]) that it requires letting go of control - completely! No desire to change or manipulate or to act "in order to", but simply accepting what is, right now, and taking it from there. No fear that you could "get it wrong". Trusting that you are and have all you need this moment.
It also requires to completely let go of both own and second-hand experiences. They are the source of information for our desires, our fears and our control mechanisms. They are thoughts about the past on which we try to build our future. And they can only ever lead backwards to what we think we know, but never show us what we don't (yet), that is: the way out.
Yes Eddie points out "just do it".
Not hearing is not as good as hearing, hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as mentally knowing, mentally knowing is not as good as acting; true learning continues up to the point that action comes forth (or only when a thing produces action can it be said to have been truly learned.)
More commonly "what i hear i forget, what i see i remember, what i do i understand".
All this was gleaned here
or more simply, just be content with the maximum :)
So say the least anything is possible within the law's of nature, the variable depends on the plausibility. What makes things plausible is derived from personal experience, and this experience is what shapes the context of reality, so in all the question if anything is possible shouldn't be questioned to this extent, since the "real" of reality is defined by the self... I'm my reality Its plausible to transcend the "self" in medatation, my plausible may be your invaluable.

I know what you mean Flowsurfer. Ive looked into the Abraham and Bashar teachings and i see a lot of common threads running thru them, but personally, for me, Nevilles teaching has far more credibility.
Now that doesnt mean that the others are wrong, and im fully aware that many have benefitted from their teaching. But Neville just seems more BELIEVABLE to me. I know its an over used phrase but he just does "resonate" with me.
Groups of spirits and alien beings are just to much of a jump for me. I just DONT BELIEVE that Daryl is channeling an alien being. Now i didnt say he wasnt, i just dont believe he is.
Ive been reading Transurfing by Vadim Zeland a lot recently, his stuff seems to pluck at a chord with me too. At first glance he seems a rather unusual wacky chappy, massive wrap around glasses and a rather reclusive personality. He claims that we can have whatever we want, and it already exists in a space of variations BUT that our REACTIONS to lifes events put us on one life track or another. Although he only mentions the bible once in this book he does explain in detail how things like judgementalism, anxiety,envy,jealousy and anger put us onto a worse life track. The pendulum idea does seem to have a parallel in the Devil/Satan thing that so many christians are so obsessed about. Basically he splits things down to a purely "ENERGY" level. Which the scientists tell us is really all that exists anyway!
He again, like Neville , has for some reason inspired a certain amount of "CREDIBILITY" with me. HOWEVER to be fair to Daryl, he claims that assigning a positive meaning to a seemingly negative event can produce miraculous results. So hey ho, there are common threads of knowledge that span all these teachers.
I read them all, take a bit more notice of the ones i like, and take a "buffet" attitude to it all.
Ive probably not answered your question, but i hope some of this makes sense to you.
PS Ive nothing against wrap around sunglasses, they never did Yoko Ono any harm.
Yes and no. We create our reality with our beliefs. If we believe that we can get what we want, we will find a way to experience it. If we believe that we cannot get what we want, then we won't. We actually live in a reality that matches our vibration. Everything that matches our vibration is accessable to us, and only the things that match our vibration. As we raise our vibration, we expand our reality and what is available to us.
For example, this little girl really wants a real live unicorn. Fortunately, her mother did not say that unicorns don't exist, she said they are hard to get. Now, we have seen animal evolution, animals become extinct and new ones show up. So, who is to say that there isn't a reality where unicorns have become a reality, or that they won't evolve in the future?
Just because you haven't seen or experienced something, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
You can have, do or be anything you want, within reason. Those two words are forgotten most of the time. Just like you hear the old saying, "Anything is possible" yes anything is possible within reason.
For example: I could want to be like Auqa-Man and explore the depths of the ocean. I could also want to fly like the birds and strap some wing thing to my back. Neither of these are possible or reasonable things to want.
I could want a million dollars by tomorrow, that is impossible for me and most people. But everything is possible within reason.
It is impossible to evict a wealthy man, it is equally impossible to evict a homeless man. We all live in a domain of possibility that we must work from. Until we move out of that domain and into another, we are stuck with the present limitation of possibility of that domain.
