Before you jump into using positive affirmations, look at your big picture to uncover the details about what you have, what you want, and what needs to change in order to achieve your goals. There are a few questions below to help you get started. After you picture what you want to change, in your mind, answer the questions aloud, or write them down, for future reference. You will probably need to refer back to them.
Envision every area of your life filled with more success. What do you see? What area or part of your life came to mind first? How does it feel? What is different? Is it truly possible to be more successful? Now, do the same thing for happiness. Picture every area of your life filled with more happiness. What does it look like? What area came to your mind first? How does it feel? What changed? Is it truly possible for you to be happier?
The ability to envision what you want to achieve and change is very important. The more often you do it, the easier it becomes. As this happens, you’ll begin adding more details each time you envision your “new life.” The more detailed your vision is, the more likely you are to achieve the results you want. Did you fudge and skip over the imagery part above? If so, do it now.
I mentioned that your possibilities are waiting. But what are they waiting for? They are waiting for you to make meaningful changes to reach your goals. You’ve heard “If you keep doing the same old things, you’ll keep getting the same old results.” Well, that’s your call to action.
To make changes, you need to do four things. First, picture how your life will change when you achieve your goals. Envision this frequently to get the clearest picture and the most details. Chalk-up a success for yourself each time you imagine this “coming soon” place and time.
