Many of our great heroes (past and current) have noted that they had seen their future self.
Some didn’t even know what it meant”¦But it became a focal point, or purpose.
Thomas Edison had the light bulb in his mind before there was ever light. What steps he needed to light the world beyond the simple candle was to become a scientist evaluating his competition and the steps they had taken and making mistakes of his own.
I’ve discovered that numerous peak performers use the skill of mental rehearsal of visualization. They mentally run through important events before they happen.
Have you seen your future? If not, I challenge you to take the time and look and to document what you’re seeing! Where do you want to be and how do you get there? It’s important! With our technology today build a map, use photos, document famous people who have done what you want to achieve! The Wright brothers had a daunting task many people had failed to fly before them and it ended their walk on earth. Keep in mind being the best at what you do won’t take as much risk but it will take studying, ideas, activity and dedication.
“I visualized where I wanted to be, what kind of player I wanted to become. I knew exactly where I wanted to go, and I focused on getting there.”
5, 10, how about 20 years from now”¦
What do you see?
Who have you become?
Visualize your future self“¦
Then find a symbol of your vision/metaphor to hang on to and carry
Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible.
It is this “sense of knowing” that will serve you in the troubling times.
Keeping you balanced and whole, and not caught up in the drama of the things you do not want to have happen. Build your roadmap to success and use that map to guide you there!
