How to Effectively Visualize to Create the Life You Want

Done correctly visualization is VERY POWERFUL and can get you anything you desire.

It doesn’t cost any money, but it does require that you have an open mind.

Relaxation is important when visualizing…

You must be in a positive state of mind.

Find a quiet place like your bedroom, closet, bathroom, or any getaway spot.

Usually optimal timing is early morning or at night but whatever works best for YOU is fine.

When in your quiet place close your eyes and begin to relax.

Slowly take deep breaths taking yourself deeper and deeper to your place of comfort.

Just relax, don’t make it difficult…

When READY, begin to visualize what it is YOU want.

If it’s a vacation…

Visualize the location. Begin to see the landmarks, the people, the conversations.

Feel the weather, smell the air, and take in all the sounds.

See yourself as if you were actually there and begin to immerse yourself fully into  that environment.

Let your imagination run wild…Don’t hold anything back!

Practice this at least once a day, but preferably two to three times daily anytime you can get 5-15 minutes to yourself.

Do not stop until your goal happens.

Make it a habit!

Always put yourself in a positive state of mind. Believe that you will have it.

Expect that it is already yours for the taking.

Start off with small goals and begin to work your way up to bigger goals as you become more skilled with your visualization.

Motivational speaker Les Brown says, “If you can see it, you can believe it!”

Begin today to start seeing the things you want in your life.

Alter your way of thinking.

Become proactive, instead of reactive.

Focus on bringing nothing but good into your life.

Constantly focus on visualizing how you want your life to be and then create it.

Action is key…

And it all starts with visualization.

Best Wishes!

Your Actions Lead to Results

I had a discussion with a friend about the importance of taking action.

I explained that taking action is the most important thing a person can do when it comes to success and growth.

You can have all the knowledge in the world, but if you don’t apply that knowledge then it is useless in the achievement of anything.

One of the biggest differences between the successful and unsuccessful often times is action.

How many times have you heard someone express that they have all these brilliant ideas, but never put those ideas into effect? I’ll wait…

Exactly! I’m sure hundreds if not thousands of time.

Many people have dreams, which is marvelous but a dream is just that until one takes the initiative to turn that dream into reality.

You can have faith, belief, and goals but without any action there is no possibility of results.

We have all been placed here for a reason and quite often people never take the time to figure out their true meaning, their purpose in life.

Sometimes it’s because they don’t believe they can, don’t know how, or are afraid of what might happen.

Many people are comfortable where they are. Not having the courage to live up to their fullest potential.

There are many people that go through life wishing and hoping they had more, but are afraid to step outside of the box to go get what they deserve because they are afraid of change.

They continue to do the same things…living their lives in a rut.

Why is action so important?

I believe action has the ability to build character. Action is always positive because it changes your psyche.

Action has the ability to open up your mind to things you never knew were possible for yourself.

You begin to realize that things you were afraid of or felt like you could not do aren’t as bad as you thought.

Or maybe you realize they are as bad as you thought, but you no longer have the doubt, thus expanding yourself to do other things.

I can remember back when I didn’t know how to swim.

I would always be on the shallow end while my friends were having fun in the deep end.

A friend recommended that I come over to the deep end so I could be a part of the group activities.

I decided to give it a shot.

Having imagined myself swimming and having enough confidence in myself to at least know how to “doggy paddle” I jumped into the deep end and literally began swimming.

I would have never known I could swim if I would have never took action.

After that I learned how to breast stroke, free style, butterfly, and back stroke.

My actions lead to the ability to become an efficient swimmer through practice and a positive mind.

You see action has the awesome ability of removing fear and opening up your mind to a world of endless possibility.

When you take action you gain experience and experience can lead to expertise.

So be brave, but not stupid.

Face that fear and take action now!
