There is a difference between having something and wanting something and the vibration we give out for both, especially when starting out being deliberate creators.
Belief comes in to it too. Do you believe you can have it?
The vibration that you give out is like a very sensitive lie detector test. Your vibration tells the Universe your true feelings on whether you believe something to be true and this is what you'll receive.
Words don't mean a thing if you are saying 'Yes, I am ready for a million dollars." When your vibration is saying, "No, I'm not ready."
And if you've not received it yet, then your vibration is saying 'No' so it's time to do something different in order to receive it...

Let's take the example of wanting a million dollars.
It's a dream for many people, but few actually receive it.
If you're saying, "I want a million dollars. Where is it?". Can you see the contrast in the signal you are sending the Universe?
It's one of the reasons why you often see millionaires who have lost everything, gain it back quickly. While first time millionaires may take years or even decades to achieve the same financial status. They are able to draw upon their memories (which is just visualisation) and feelings of what being a millionaire feels like.
The longer you can keep this pure vibration the better your results.
Let's Play a Game...
Pick something you REALLY want but don't have... yet.
Something will have popped into your mind - what was it?
The Universe doesn't care whether it's a 'big' thing, like a million dollars, or a small thing, like a penny, and it doesn't have to be monetary.
If you are in a bit of a manifesting rut, it might be a good idea to start with something you believe is a small ask, if you're on a manifesting roll, why not stretch yourself a bit?
What does having this make you feel?
Would it make you act differently?
Would your day-to-day routines be different?
Would your decision making be different?
Sit down with a piece of paper and pen, or write on Word, or create notes on your phone. Whichever method is most comfortable and natural to do - do it.
Really immerse yourself in BEING the person who has this 'thing'.
Continue practising and being this person until you have it, adjusting your actions and thoughts until those match the vibration of HAVING it.
