Can you see it?
I can remember walking in someone else’s dream. Since age 15 that’s what I did. I couldn’t figure out why I was unhappy. I was making money, buying my own things, and the job wasn’t hard.
Then I soon realized that watching my mom work her full-time and run a business I did not want to do. I WANTED TO BE MY OWN BOSS AND LIVE MY DAMN DREAM. How can I do that and I have no clue what I wanted to do. Then in my early 20’s I was blessed to take over my mother’s childcare business. That’s when I took a moment and looked at myself and said I am a BOSS.
As many know you have to understand the inside of business and take off your blinders. Yes I had blinders and guess what it’s time to take off yours.
I want to know can you see it? Your passion turning into success. Lets be serious its easy to walk in someone else’s truth. Its hard to walk into yours. I wonder why? The risk, scared your going to fail, or don’t know what you will do if you do not embrace your passion. Being able to live your purpose on purpose. Run in you truth and smile while doing it. Who knew that you would find who you really are even after the storm. I am here to tell you that visualizing your way to success is not mystical or weird. It’s apart of manifesting. I am going give you 7 tips that has help me see my vision and execute my greatness.
1. Peace and quiet
The first step to visualizing your way to success is to get some peace and quiet. Sound impossible? Try right before bed, or as soon as you wake in the morning. Maybe you can set your alarm earlier. You will need to have some time when you are not distracted or needed.
2. Determine your goals
Be specific — “more money” is too broad. Maybe it’s $1000 a month, or being out of debt, or spending more time with your significant other or kids.
Be specific and detailed here, too. Imagine exactly what it would be like to reach your goals. Imagine having that extra time with your children — what would you do? Where would you go? Picture a specific event or activity you’d like to do with them.
If you want to be out of debt, imagine the freedom of having expendable cash. Try to feel, see, and smell what you would do with that money. Maybe imagine opening a savings account — picture yourself walking into the bank and meeting with a representative there. When you imagine, include the details.
4. See yourself
As you imagine these specific scenarios, try to watch yourself as an observer would. See your personality and how you are acting. Picture yourself going to meetings, making sales, garnering clients, earning money enough to spend time with your kids — whatever you like, try watching yourself do it. Try to make it really vivid — colors, sounds, sights.
5. Bring it home
Try imagining these things happening at a specific time and date, not just whenever. Picture it in a particular season and time.
6. Energize it
As you visualize meeting your goals and succeeding in business, try breathing energy into the picture. Make it truly real.
7. Accept the vision
Sometimes, you can go through all of the above and still be thinking “it can’t happen for me.” That means this next step is especially important — accept the vision as doable, real, and possible. Embrace it and own it.
Visualization is a lot about building confidence. It’s also about tapping into the brain’s tendency to heighten your awareness to opportunities that have to do with what you’re focusing on. If it’s on your mind, in other words, you may be more likely to see the opportunities that come your way.
