Can you visualize your dream. In fact, already living your dream life?
Can you do it? If you can’t, how do you propose you’ll make it into a reality. It’s nearly impossible to create a reality that you can’t imagine, so the first step – well before we start generating income, is to ask yourself what you truly want out of your life and then visualize yourself achieving that success.
You’re reading this right now because you want to know how to become incredibly wealthy, but before any of the wealth building strategies, this first step is crucial.
This is where you will specify what you’re aiming for in life, then visualize it come to pass.
If you want to be financially wealthy, you must learn how to envision yourself as a millionaire, owning everything you’ve ever dreamed of, traveling to all the places you’ve always wanted to see and providing for those you love.
And most important you'll have to be committed to your dreams and goals.
As I am talking about this I am reminded of Napoleon Hill, the great personal development expert who wrote Think and Grow Rich in 1937.
He was a huge proponent of visualization, saying “Cherish your visions and dreams. They are the blueprints of your soul.” This is spot on.
When you envision where you will be in five years, or three or even just a year from now, you are creating a blueprint for your soul – for every ounce of energy you expend.
This goes hand in hand with the Law of Attraction, which states that you will attract into your life that which you put out into the universe.
The things you believe most deeply are those that will be created in your life. They are the successes you will celebrate because they are what you’ve focused all of your energy into.
Now, whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, there is a very real scientific principle at work here.
It’s called cognitive dissonance and the idea is that when you believe something strongly enough, your subconscious will do everything possible to ensure reality reflects that belief.
In the case of wealth creation, you will truly begin to believe that you can and will succeed in as many ways as you have imagined
Visualization is Powerful.
When you create a mental image of what you want to achieve in life, you generate a map for your mind to follow – a clear outline to follow.
When you do this, you start to attract wealth into your life in ways you never expected before. Whether intentionally or not, you visualize hundreds of things every day and many of them come to pass.
Unfortunately, most people don’t realize this and visualize negative things – letting their imaginations sabotage their chances of success.
Instead of visualizing financial success, they visualize what they don’t want and don’t need. You, on the other hand, need to plan actively good things to avoid bad stuff from happening.
6 Powerful Visualization Techniques to Manifest Your Dreams.
1. Find Out What You Want.
Your first step is to pick one specific dream or goal you want to manifest, and get really clear about what it is and why you want to achieve it. The more clearly you can define this dream or goal, the easier it will be for you to visualize yourself achieving it.
2. The ‘Mental Rehearsal’ Technique.
This is one of the visualization techniques that are popular with top athletes. To practice, set aside a few minutes a day at a time when you are relaxed, such as: when you first wake up, after meditation or prayer, or right before you go to bed.
Picture in your mind exactly what you desire with as many details as possible – Don’t just say to yourself that you want to be wealthy. Actually visualize what that will entail.
Do what Jack Canfield (of Chicken Soup for the Soul fame) and Jim Carrey did – write yourself a one million dollar check and look at it every day until you can cash it.
3. Create a Vision Board
One of my favorite visualization techniques is using a vision board to make it easy for you to see your goals as having been achieved.
A vision board is a collage of images and powerful words or phrases that evoke the visuals, objects, and sensations you associate with the successful achievement of your goal.
For example, if one of your dreams is to own a new car, take your camera down to your local auto dealer and have a picture taken of yourself sitting behind the wheel of your dream car.
If your goal is to visit Paris, find a picture or poster of the Eiffel Tower then place a picture of yourself and the image of Paris on your vision board.
4. Use Affirmations to Support Your Visualization.
An affirmation is a positive statement that is written in the affirmative present tense that evokes the experience of already having whatever it is you want
Repeating an affirmation several times a day keeps you focused on your goal, strengthens your motivation, and programs your subconscious to do whatever it takes to make that goal happen.
Please note that the affirmation is always focused on what you DO want to achieve, not what you DON’T want to experience. this is because we always tend to get what we visualize, even when it’s expressed as a negative. (Try to consciously NOT think about pink elephants and you’ll see what I mean.)
- I’m committed to achieving personal greatness.
- I’m committed to using all that I have to become all that I can be.
- I spend ten minutes every day imprinting empowering beliefs upon my mind.
- I am an inspiration to myself and others.
- I regularly take time to appreciate others.
- I am great the way I am right now.
- Life is exciting and fun.
- There are massive amounts of money making opportunities.
- Most people are kind and trustworthy.
- I’m committed to success and am great at overcoming obstacles.
- I’m the kind of person who always follows through.
When you speak these positive phrases and repeat again by mentally rehear it everyday. It starts to sink in your subconscious little by little and you don't even realize that you are changing.
That's the idea here.
5. Focus on Your Feeling
An important part when it comes to using visualization techniques is to tap into the power of feelings.
Because if you cannot feel good when visualizing your dreams you cannot manifest them in reality.
You can do this by closing your eyes and picturing your dreams coming true.
Ask yourself, how does it feel? The thrill of success, the joy of achievement, confidence blooming, satisfaction, the sensation of peace or exhilaration… all these feelings can be part of your imagined reality.
This is more than just a mental exercise. Your thoughts and feelings shape your reality.
When you engage with your dreams on this emotional level, you’re not just dreaming; you’re living those dreams in your mind. Your heart starts to believe these dreams are achievable, making you more driven to pursue them.
This is why scripting, the act of writing down your dreams as if they’re already happening, is so powerful.
So go ahead, close your eyes and imagine what it feels like to live your dreams.
Let your mind travel to that future you’re striving for, and let those feelings soak in.
6. Make Meditation a Daily Habit.
Think of meditation as a gym for your mind. Just like you would lift weights to build muscle, you use meditation to build mental resilience and focus. It’s a practice of quieting your mind, focusing your thoughts, and nourishing inner peace.
Meditation trains your brain to stay focused on your goals and serves as a platform for powerful visualizations.
The beauty of meditation is in its simplicity and versatility. You don’t need any special equipment or dedicate hours of your day.
Even a few minutes of focused, intentional silence can have a significant positive impact. It’s like prepping your brain to receive the energy of positive thinking.
When you meditate, you clear the noise and make room for positivity, clarity, and vision.
So, start your journey towards your dream life with meditation.
Clear your mind, focus on your breath, and visualize your dreams. Remember, it’s not about ‘getting it right’ but about creating a space for you to grow.
Look, I’m going to be straight with you: There’s no magic trick here, no secret recipe.
Achieving anything worthwhile requires work, effort, and a whole lot of consistency. But here’s the thing, that work becomes a whole lot easier and more enjoyable when you’re motivated by a dream that inspires you.
When you’re driven by a vision of what you want to achieve.
Imagine waking up every day, not because you have to, but because you want to. Because you’re excited about the future you’re creating for yourself. That’s what visualization techniques can do for you.
