A week at the beach gives you time for reflection (limited access to the internet, so no blogging :)) and time to consider options in life.
Sit by the shore, stare out at the ocean and realize you can only see so far, yet the water goes out far beyond what you can see with the naked eye.
The horizon is simply the beginning of something much bigger, perhaps bigger than you can imagine but if you fail to give it a try, if you don’t at least close your eyes and visualize what it must look like, way beyond the horizon , then you close yourself off to a word of possibilities.
SEEing is BELIEVing.
Without vision, not from your eyes, but from your mind, your life can be quite still.
Still, as in standing still.
If you have a dream, if there are things you want so badly to accomplish, then you need to say it and see it, affirm it and then visualize yourself doing it and experiencing incredible success, not from the outside in, but from the inside out.
Affirmations and visualization are amazing tools. The words make it inspiring, the vision from your own vantage point of accomplishing it, makes it real. All too real. Your subconscious does not care what it is being told to do, it only follows your orders. If you talk, even to yourself, about fear, misery, negativity and despair – your mind is more than happy to oblige and your future will follow that path. But if you instead give your subconscious pictures of success, happiness, stimulation, visions of grandeur and see yourself reaching your potential in unbelievable ways – it will listen and create a path to act out the same.
Visualize yourself IN the moment.
If you are climbing that mountain, than see it from the perspective of your own eyes, see your hand reaching for that next foothold, your gaze toward the heavens, the beads of sweat on your brow as you advance up to the precipice of your desire.
If you want to become CEO of your own company, then visualize that conference room from your vantage point – you at the head of the big table, looking out at those on your team, seeing how they respect and admire your leadership, guidance, and vision because you have learned to share, to give first, then receive. See yourself making decisions that change other lives in a positive way.
If you want to make that big sale, many big sales, then see it through your eyes – visualize the moment (s) and the gratitude in your client’s eyes for what you have helped them to accomplish to enhance their own lives. And repeat that action again and again, until you build an army of goodwill.
If you are writing the book you always dreamed about then tap into the vision of you organizing your thoughts, writing the outline, typing away at the keyboard, sharing your ideas or story with the world, feel the printed book in your hands and visualize the moment you see someone else reading something to which you gave life.
If you, if you, if you…. Change those words to when you – or better yet, I can, I am.
What do you want to do? What have you always wanted to do? What fires you up? What inspires your passion? What do you want to do so much that you never work another day in your life.
If you can affirm it with positive talk and visualize the words becoming reality in your mind – you have a chance of reaching your dreams, maybe not tomorrow, but one day – one day – so the day never comes when you say the words “I would of, I could of, I should of”…maybe the saddest phrase in the English language.
Close your eyes and mentally see whatever it is you want to accomplish, then feel it, grab ahold of the emotion and go deep, deep into an affirmation of what you believe about yourself, what you want to do, then visualize you reaching for that star.
And don’t forget the one thing which is the secret to all of this, the one thing which if you do it will change everything, change your world, change your life. That secret? Easy, it’s the perfect time to begin all of this.
The perfect time is NOW.
Until next time, thanks for taking the time.
