"Dare to visualize a world in which your most treasured dreams have become true." ~Ralph Marston
If you had the life that you loved, what would it look like? What adventures would fill your soul with joy? What would be happening with your career or school? Your finances? What does your dream job look like? How about your health? What would you like your children to be like? How about your relationship with your partner or your spouse?
There are specific strategies that "happy people" use to feel empowered, confident, and focused on getting what they want in their lives, and...well ....becoming even happier! One of these strategies is their fascination with the power of their imagination.
Young children easily and naturally engage in day dreaming and imagining for long periods of time. Their imaginations grow and grow as they often leave their current reality behind to create new realities that are more fun and adventurous. It feels so good to create something out of nothing in their minds, vividly developing stories and pictures of whatever they want. So, go ahead, be like a child again and unleash your imagination! You can still do it!
Dream bigger dreams!
The only thing that limits you in what you can create is your imagination. So, how can you begin?
1) Start telling yourself good feeling stories. Write some new narratives around your goals and dreams that describe your ideal and magical life. Make it real! Bring what you want from the future into your now as you write all of it in the present moment, and feel how good it feels, as though you already have it. Remember, the foundation for creating what we desire is in the "feeling good" part. The more you use your imagination to practice what you want, the more of it you create.
2) Use your imagination to create a picture, just a snapshot, of what you want the outcome of your new story to be. What does the situation look like when you have it? Create a picture that feels really good for you. Imagine the monthly sales results you are going to make by seeing your sales report with incredible results on it. Picture the clients you see with happy faces and lots of smiles. See your children as loving, respectful, happy, and engaged with you. Look for a smile on your spouse's face and imagine hugging them, feeling all of the joy that the snapshot represents. See yourself at your healthiest ever!
3) Now, repeat the images over and over again in your mind. Make some "me time" for yourself everyday to practice, even if it's just for 5 minutes or so. It doesn’t take long to get the hang of it.
Remember, your imagination has incredible power! So, use it to feel good ...and focus your creative energy only on the things you want to happen!
