1. Visualization is a mental practice.
Everyone uses visualization subconsciously, but very few use it positively. We can make our brain believe that attaining a goal is possible, simply by using visualization. People who think they are fortunate to make positive things happen for themselves. We can visualize anything; the only limit is our own minds.
Imagery is our most fundamental language.
We think in pictures. If we learn to use imagination and visualization in the right way, it can be a tremendously powerful technique to achieve what we want in our lives by focusing all our attention and imagination on it. When we first practice visualization techniques, we open our minds and hearts in order to allow in, without censoring or judging, what we truly want to manifest in our lives. The more we practice, the clearer the details of our vision become.
2. Having faith in yourself will drive you to stay focused.
Choose to have a winning attitude and force your mind to see the positive opportunity in every experience, negative or positive. You owe it to yourself to become everything you have ever dreamed of being.
You give what you focus on.
Visualizing yourself to become the person that you want to be, is a powerful tool to stay focused. When you focus on something, you actually give your mind a command (whether you are aware of it or not). So your mind is looking for ways to extract that command that you gave it. Why? Because your brain doesn’t know the difference, it will drive you to focus on creating it to happen. So understand that every time you tell yourself that things will go wrong, it’s actually going to happen. Your mind will look for the things that you tend to look for. If you think negatively, your mind will look for negative.
It this important to understand that the same effect that your mind has on a negative thought, will be as powerful as on positive thought.
Identify the feeling that you wanted and practice this feeling.
You don’t need to wait for your life changes to feel good, you can choose to feel good now. It’s important to understand because that gave you the motivation required right now. You don’t need a condition to feel happy. Just imagination is enough to give your brain the sensation that it's real.
3. Your affirmation will make you or break you.
Affirmation’s one of the biggest keys to how you see life in general. Most people don’t realize the affirmation that they said about themselves. People are driving by their self-talk. For instance, when you said to yourself that you hate Monday, and what will happen the next Monday, your mind will remember the statement that you said and use it. It means that every Monday unconsciously you will be in the bad mood to go to work because your mind already knows that you hate Monday and so act like you hate going to work to things on Monday…
4. Write down your Vision
Write a letter to yourself about your vision statement 5, or 10 years from now. This exercise will give you a foundation for your mind (put like it actually happens). And because the brain doesn’t know the difference, it will drive you to focus on creating it to happen. It’s important that you have to write your vision with passion, with no limitations. Be positive and be present when you write it.
5. Use Visualization to achieve your goals
You have to look at yourself and ask if you match currently what you want, and if the answer is no, you have to start to change a small thing right now to be capable of living the life that you want.
You don’t need to wait until your goals to have been achieved to start to enjoy living your life dreams. You can already now by changing small things in your life that will bring you closer to your life goals.
Try to change your routine when you start a new goal. This new routine will keep you motivated.
6. Invest time in yourself
The more you will invest in yourself, the more you are committed and will drive you to achieve your goal. So ask yourself what can I do right now, what can I change in my life in order to become the person that I want to be? Commit to working on changing to improve your life and open the door to achieve a goal that you have.
If you have people around you that demotivated you, just limit the time that you spend with them. Or just doesn’t talk about your life and dreams in front of the haters, jealous… Don’t let people get you away from your dreams. Chose the right people.
People are usually minimizing their success and maximizing failure Failure will lead you to success; failure will be your strength to commit yourself to do better next time. Failure is the opportunity that teaches you, fires you up, and help you to succeed. Give you the confidence, not give up, and make you strong. Also, follow in your social media people that motivate you to do what you want, people who work out, and people determined. Do not surround yourself with people who hang out a lot and club all the time. Statistics had shown that when you got on your social network, with people who are clubbing and hanging out a lot, you are 70 % more susceptible to doing the same unconsciously
7. Learn to celebrate yourself Commit to celebrating who you are and loving yourself. You have to learn to celebrate each small goal achieved. Look at your daily accomplishments; be grateful for everything in your life. Don’t wait until you’ve reached your goals to be proud of yourself.
Celebrate every step along the way. When you celebrate the small wins that you make, it will create the confidence and momentum that you need in order to keep going. When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged, It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside — Joel Osteen
A bucket list is an excellent way to reward yourself. Whenever you hit an important task or achieve a specific goal. Take out yourself for breakfast, book a relaxing massage, buy yourself a gift, get out of town, watch a movie, etc You owe it to yourself to become everything you have ever dreamed of being.
