Visualizing your Success
What is it that thing that holds you back from acheiving success and fulfilling your dreams
Could it be money? Time? Lack of contacts or resources?
Most likely it is the fear of failure. You are not alone by any means because this is the one
biggest stumbling block to success that people share.
The truth is that everyone has failures and set backs along the way, sometimes many of them. At some point you have to face risks and avoid running from them. The key is to focus on winning and avoid playing "not to lose". Is that were the saying scared money never wins? I think so.
When things don't pan out as planned, just make sure that you get back up, no matter how hard it may seem. Every time that you do, you will be smarter, tougher, stronger, and better prepared for the next opportunity. There never is any going backwards, always step forward even if the steps at first are small ones.
I would like to include the following from some one you are familar with but may not have thought of in terms of
" Vizualizing Success".
What would you do today if you knew you could not Fail?
If you had an absolute guarantee of Success
(whatever you conceive that to be),
what would you do?
How would you act? What would you think? Would you
celebrate your victories in advance? Would you enjoy your
endeavor more? How would you live your life and how would
you conduct your business?
My guess is that if you had such a guarantee, you would do
things much differently. You would not let 'fear' of anything
hold you back, no fear of failure, no fear of success. You would
not let 'doubt' creep into your thoughts and immobilize your actions.
You would not compare yourself with others and underestimate
your own contribution. If you had some rejection along the way,
you would blow it off and go on, because it wouldn't matter because
you were going to succeed anyway. If someone doesn't see that, it
doesn't hurt you because you have a guarantee of success.
You would proceed and live with the confidence, poise and passion
that would absolutely propel you to your dream of success. You
would take the necessary and the extraordinary actions to make
your dream a reality without any thought because you cannot fail
and of course, even when success is guaranteed, action is required.
So why not pretend? Use your imagination. Pretend like you have the
ironclad, rock-solid guarantee that you will have the success you desire.
It's your fantasy; make it real in your own mind. Play the game and
visualize the outcome. Start 'acting as if' you have that guarantee.
Then see what happens.
'And will you succeed? Yes! You will indeed!
(98 ¾ percent guaranteed)' Dr. Seuss 1904-1991
The above section was written by someone who you might NOT have expected.
Known as Dr Suess, his real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel. While he didn't start out as anauthor of childrens books, he had worked as a cartoonist. The first book that he both wrote and illustrated was refused 27 times. Later he did experience success with his classics " The Cat in The Hat" " Green Eggs and Ham" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"
Over 200 million copies of his books have been sold around the world and have been translated into 15 different languages. Among his other accomplishments are two Academy awards, Emmy awards, a Peabody award and a Pulitzer Prize.
It seems like Dr Suess knew "The Secret" long before it become popular like it is today. Visualize your success. See yourself successful, Expect that you will be, and play the game.
