Let’s pretend. It’s the best and easiest way to learn how to use positive visualization to benefit your life. And pretending is something we often did as children when we played, so it shouldn’t be that difficult to do.
If you need some inspiration, think back to how you’d pretend to be a super hero or a fireman or a rock star. Can you get there again?
Do you even remember how to pretend? How to let your imagination run wild and dream up wonderful fantasy worlds of what you want to do, what you want to be when you “grow up?” These “fantasies” were really positive visualization techniques, although we didn’t know it at the time.
The power of visualization can be truly amazing, but it’s a technique that seems to elude a lot of people. So, you’re going to try the following positive visualization practice.
You’ve more than likely heard or read about it many times. However it is a wonderful way to initiate inspiring thoughts that will motivate you to begin the journey down the road to a better, more successful life.
How To Begin
“If you had $100 million in your bank right now, what would you do with your life?”
Think about this carefully. A lot of people will start to write down what they want to HAVE in material possessions. This is not what you’re after. Material possessions will come to you as needed, when they are needed, and AFTER you get clear on what you want in life.
What is important right now is what you want to DO with yourself.
What are your passions? If you could go anyplace and do anything at all because you had more than enough money to live on… what would you be DOING?
I can probably guess what your first response will be. “I’d quit my job, relax, maybe travel, but essentially, I’d want to do NOTHING.”
This is a fairly typical reaction to suddenly being financially free. It’s based on relief, the letting go of stress and worry on how to make a living. That’s okay. Experience this relief, feel it, bask in it for a short while. Doesn’t it feel really good?
However, this is also unrealistic for the long term. Can you really imagine yourself doing absolutely nothing for years and years and years? You’d be totally bored out of your mind! Your life would be completely meaningless. So, thinking of doing “nothing” is not a good use of positive visualization.
You need to move on and get to the heart of what you want really want to do. What is your dream lifestyle? What holds a lot of meaning for you that you would just love to do?
Allow Visions, Ideas, Thoughts, and Desires To Flow
Don’t hold back. Let those inspiring thoughts out. Write them down. Write whatever comes to mind. This is where the power of visualization comes into play.
Your vision of that lifestyle is the catalyst that can propel you into taking the steps toward bringing those secret passions into being. It’s those passions, those desires that will begin to shape your reality.
It is those wants, those goals that will start to attract the opportunities, people, and things that you’ll require to begin that journey down a new path. THIS is how positive visualization works.
What Positive Visualization Picture Inspires You The Most?
You now have $100 million dollars in your bank account. You do not need to go back to that crumby job. You don’t need to even find a job. You can live wherever you choose. And you can do anything that you desire to do (legally of course).
What inspiring thoughts come immediately to your mind? What will you do with your life? How will YOU make it meaningful?
