He had the attendees do exercises that showed us how we see ourselves today, what shaped our thinking and why we may have made the choices we have throughout our adult lives. Then we moved onto where we want our lives to be, the person we want to become; in other words the vision of our lives even though we are not there yet. The exercise of writing down where we see ourselves in the future, the sights and sounds of those moments, the conversations taking place; simply the visualization of our life to be. It’s very powerful stuff.
If you’ve read other material I have written you will know that I am a huge proponent of affirmations and taking your affirmations and turning them into your vision statement. Then I encourage you to read it and visualize it at least twice daily. I highly recommend recording your vision statement on a tape recorder or downloading to your iPhone or iPod so it’s easily accessible. You’ll then be able to listen to it while you are on a plane sitting back relaxing, while getting ready for work in the morning, while walking at the park, running on the treadmill at the gym, lying in bed in the morning and at night or driving to work. The possibilities are endless.
If you do this, I promise you your life will change. If you learn to make these statements in the present tense as though they have occurred and you are already living it, your mind will begin believing it and the universe will start opening doors / opportunities that will just amaze you. But you must be ready to see them and take action. It’s a lot of fun to begin seeing your vision come together.
Mach II With Your Hair On Fire is a great book also available on audiobook that will help you understand the power of visions.
