To create your vision in life a reality you need to become a master of your emotions. If you can feel and experience what you want before you create it you are more likely to get it albeit much quicker. So what you need to do every day is condition the emotions you want in your life just like you would go to the gym and work out. When people say to visualize what they also mean is ‘feel’ what it is going to be like. When you have a vivid, bright, colorful, moving, 3D, large visual image you will definitely feel the emotions that come with that picture.
The reason people have goals is because they want to feel a certain way. And the cool part is that you can feel the way you want even before you attain the goal. And the crazy part about that is that it will help you achieve the goal even faster because abundance begets more abundance. You will never get beyond scarcity, you must start beyond it no matter how bad you think things are. Look and feel for the things that are going your way in life no matter how small and simple they may seem. For you they may seem insignificant but for another person it would be a dream to be in your position.
This is why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Or the fit/healthy people get more fit/healthy and out of shape people stay that way and get worse. They are tapping into the emotions and feelings that move them in those directions to create those results.
Start with gratitude for all you have…even your challenges. From there paint the picture of what you want for your life physically, socially, financially, the impact you have on the world with your work etc. Visualize it. Hear it. Feel it. If you want to go deeper into it you can play with the submodalities of your experience. Juice it up and feel the emotions. Love. Joy. Playfulness. Excitement. Adventure. Laughter. Curiosity. Bliss. Peace. Comfort. Power. Security. There is proven science behind the effectiveness of this which is why we hear of athletes visualizing their success before they perform. They literally rewire the neural circuitry in their brains. Just like anything the more you do it the better you’ll get and the easier it will be for your mind and body to just go there and eventually live in that emotional state.
