If I told you that you don’t have to “settle” for whatever life plunks in your lap, but instead that you can CREATE exactly what you want, what would you say?
Do you truly believe it’s possible to go from victim to visionary?
I’m here to tell you that it absolutely is! And it’s actually not as hard as you might think.
But you can’t go about it willy-nilly. There are definitely “ingredients” that you need to include if you want your magical life “recipe” to turn out right. And one of those secret ingredients is VISUALIZATION.
Now you’ve probably heard about visualization before and heck, you may even have a Vision or Dream Board hanging up in your house someplace. But the term visualization can be a bit misleading because it makes us focus solely on what we see. But the REAL secret to effective visualization is ensuring that we link what we are seeing makes us FEEL.
Let me share a story with you about the actor, Jim Carey. Long before he made it in Hollywood, he would drive himself to the top of Hollywood Hills, sit in his car and visualize a successful acting career. He didn’t go home until he firmly believed the pictures of success he’d created in his mind AND until he was filled with a complete sense of euphoria.
In 1990, when he was still relatively unknown, he made out a check to himself post-dated for Thanksgiving 1995 for $10 million for “acting services rendered.” At the time, there was certainly no indication on the horizon that he’d ever earn that kind of money. Guess what happened next? Just before Thanksgiving 1995, Carrey signed a contract for $10 million!
Now this is a big story with a big star and a big dollar amount, but stories like this play out around the world each and every day.
So if you are already using a vision board, or some other form of visualization, make sure that whatever you are looking at KNOCKS YOUR SOCKS OFF. It must EVOKE POWERFUL EMOTION! If you don’t feel anything when you look at those pictures, scrap them and start over!
And to REALLY ramp up your visualizations, pair them with your affirmations. One of my fav ways to do this is to use Mind Movies. This tool is the bomb!
In just minutes, you can create a powerful movie that includes your own affirmations, photos and even music! It’s like a digital vision board. And trust me, I’m no techy so if I can use this, anyone can!
So got a big dream? Remember, you hold the brush – go from victim to visionary and paint your life exactly the way you’ve always wanted!
