Make Visualizing Fun
Can we agree on something? Can we agree that if we were shooting an arrow, that we probably wouldn’t hit the bulls eye in a target if we didn’t have a target? We suppose you could say if we shot an arrow without any real direction that there is some chance it may end up striking a target somewhere in the middle, but if we weren’t actually aiming for it, that would be a real fluke, wouldn’t it? So how unlikely is it that you are going to hit a goal if you don’t have one? Pretty darned unlikely, wouldn’t you concur? Even if we have a target, if we aren’t looking at it while we take aim, doesn’t it make sense that we are unlikely to reach it?
We want to propose to you that having something to visualize is an essential component to visualizing, so if you haven’t gotten very specific on what you want, perhaps now would be a good time to do this. This doesn’t mean “work” for you, this should be done with a glad heart and with fun in mind. Here’s something to consider, if you were totally financially independent and continued to work at your job, wouldn’t that take you to another level of attitude than you are at today? Instead of feeling as if you are compelled to work because you’d be financially destitute if you don’t show up, you could show up with the attitude that you are on the job to learn something or to have fun. If you don’t need the money, isn’t it likely no one will ever be able to put their thumb on you, demean you, or take advantage of you again unless you allowed that to happen? That becomes so much less likely to happen by the fact that you could easily pack up and leave should you choose to.
Here’s the thing, we really dislike doing things like going to work if we feel trapped into doing it, even if that’s not true. All we have to do is perceive we are compelled to do it by our financial circumstances and we are not much better off than a slave would be, true? Since visualizing our goals is our ticket out of this mess, perhaps we would like to consider having a whole new attitude about doing it. Yes, we should be serious about doing it often, as in every time we close our eyes to go to sleep and when we arise, but we want to feel the feeling of freedom reaching our big goals gives us, the joy that we’d experience once we reach that destination- each and every time we close our eyes and see it.
In your imagination, see a scenario where when someone tries to put the squeeze on you and instead you find some sort of creative, flamboyant way in which to leave their employ. We don’t mean quit striving for excellence, we only mean to quit striving for excellence for that person’s benefit. This is one place where the element of fun can come into play, but it’s not the only one. Think of the idea that you could give freely to anyone, anywhere- and anything you chose to. Wouldn’t that put a different perspective on things in your heart? Wouldn’t that cause you to enjoy life more? See it that way in your vision, see the happiness, the joy, and the bliss of knowing you could make a huge difference to the people you love by having the means to do it. Never visualize trouble or difficulty, by the way. One sure way to chase your dreams away is to see negative things happen if you reach your goal, but with that one word of caution stated, go now and make visualizing fun, have a blast with it! You’re causing your dreams to come true, what’s not to enjoy about that?
