“Change the images in your head to match the vision in your heart.”
Visualizing your dreams means deliberately replaying a mental vision and image of where or who you would like to be. Leaders, successful people and Powerhouse women in every field cite visualization as a major key in reaching success. Even superstars like Oprah Winfrey have used the simple but powerful tool of “visualizing your dreams” to reach where they are today:
“In my mind, I've always been an A-list Hollywood superstar.”
It is important to understand the concept that she who says she can do something, will, and she who says she cannot do anything will not, and both are correct. People who say they can do something often see themselves achieving what it is they want, and that visualization of accomplishment stimulates their psychological functioning. This excited state of mind is a booster that gives them confidence and pushes them to perform whatever necessary in order to achieve goals. When people accomplish what they want, their intuition gives them an even more powerful challenge of, “You can do more!” creating a powerful, effective cycle.
Here are 5 tips for visualizing your dreams and setting in motion those things you must do to accomplish them:
1. Focus on your dreams, aims, and objectives. Life is complicated, point blank, and it’s easy to get caught up in the chaos, leaving your dreams neglected and unfed. Identify your goals and adopt persistence and perseverance toward achieving those goals.
2. Adopt a positive mindset and start living like a champion. No pity parties allowed. Above all, get rid of the "self-pity" nature. If you imagine yourself a victor and behave like one, you will be one someday because,
“The woman who wins is the woman who thinks she can.”
3. Experience the joy of achieving your dream by involving your senses in this process. If you want to be an Humanitarian Award winner, imagine it. Use supplementary material, for example, to set a stage in your room with a microphone. Prepare a speech and finally lift up the award. This might sound crazy or woo to you, but baby, you’d be surprised at how many actual award winners say they used to do the very same thing.
4. Prepare stimulants and place them at different locations where you spend most of your time, such as your room or your workplace. Stimulants can be quotes that serve as reminders and help you to visualize your dreams. Consider the Humanitarian Award example again. You can save a picture of some Humanitarian Award winner in your cell phone with a words that reminds you that, “you will be among the elite Humanitarian Award winners someday.”
5. Above all focus on achieving your dreams and plan to work toward it.
Remind yourself not to spend too much time daydreaming. The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do. Plan what you should do to achieve your goals and starting working on that plan with persistence, perseverance, and passion.
