For nearly anything in life, you need to picture what you want in your mind first while taking the necessary steps to create it into your reality. It is not enough to just imagine the things you desire, sit on a couch and eat a sandwich. Dreams never literally take physical form unless you put in the work.
But where do you even begin? How can you go about realizing what you want? What can you do to change your current circumstances? Why is the mind so powerful?
Well, if you can picture what you want in your mind, believe it in your heart, and have the desire and the courage to work for it, you can bring it into your reality. You have to see it happening. There is nothing off limits. And there are no limitations to those who believe and those who are willing to work for their dream. So, you have to see it in your mind before you can see it in your reality.
You need to visualize what you want. Picture everything you want so clearly in your mind until you can see it right in front of you. Write it all down on a piece of paper. Create a vision board. Then you will have evidence of the incredible influence of your mind, and the remarkable power you have.
Nothing good ever comes from living by what is in front of you, and by only reacting to the circumstances of life. In that way, you never move beyond the life that is staring at you right now. So, you have to be able to see outside of your current situation.
What You Want Has to Be a Pulling Vision
There is a big difference between pushing and pulling yourself. Pushing yourself is not something you desire but rather something you have to do to get something. While pulling yourself is the vision you have, which draws, excites and compels you to achieve what you want.
You must be able to acknowledge where you are in life. But know that you are capable of creating so much more. You have to understand that where you are right now is not your life. It is where you are at the moment only because of your previous decisions and past beliefs.
Now, it is time, to sum up, the courage to ask for better, to believe things could be better, and to believe magic is on the way. The time has come to get what you want and deserve. Know that in life, we do not get what we ask for, but we get what we ask and work for.
What You Want Is Putting in the Work
Nothing in your existence will happen without putting in the work. No matter the books, seminars, audio tapes, gurus, or mentors you get; nothing will work if you do not put effort into what you want. I am not talking about doing work you hate; there is no need for that.
I am speaking about doing work you love. Passion is not working. Yes, you have to do something, but you should do it because you love doing it, and not because you have to. And that is where the magic is created. You add value to others by doing what you want to do, and you get rewarded for it. What you want is not going to come to you by just dreaming about it.
When you get in your car to go somewhere, you would never expect to arrive at the destination by just closing your eyes and picturing about it. And you know you cannot get there instantly. You must know where you are going, but you also understand that right now you are here. Therefore, to get to your objective, there is going to be a journey.
What You Want Is Often a Difficult Path
There might be roadblocks, detours, curves, stop signs, barriers, flat tires, and even breakdowns on the way. But if you really must get to that destination and have what you want, you can and will find a way. On a car trip, you would never stop half way and turn around because of a detour, a setback or an obstacle.
You just take whatever path that leads to your destination, even if it is or was not the road you planned on taking, or the easiest one.
Life is no different! If you want something; anything in your life, you must first know where you are. And then you have to know what it is going to take to get there. So, you have to commit that no matter what happens, you will reach that destination.
What You Want Is Achievable
When you have to go the long way to get what you want, so be it, follow the long road. If you have to learn a new way, then learn this new approach. And when there are detours, roadblocks, curves, or you get flat tires and breakdowns, you have to keep going.
Find a way to fix the issue. Get patched up. But you need never to quit. If you just know deep inside of you and if you believe you will get there, you will. And when you dare to see it through, there is nothing you cannot achieve or have.
“The man who has no imagination has no wings.” – Mohamed Ali
There is nowhere you cannot go, and no one you cannot become. If you cannot envision what you want, if you cannot believe it, then you will never see it through and never become that person.
What You Want Is Feeling It
And if you want to live an average life, that is fine. Keep your feet on the ground. But if what you want is to soar, if you want to achieve great things, you must not only think crazy thoughts but feel and visualize them.
Picture and experience what it would feel like to be doing what you dream of and want to do. Sense what it feels like to have all the things you want. Feel what it is to be the person that has achieved the things you want to accomplish.
The very process of you feeling like you already have it will send vibrational signals to your brain. And if you are willing to work for it, it will be in your life earlier than you think.
“Your imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein
Picturing What You Want
Only those who believe anything is possible can achieve the things most would consider impossible. So you must know who you are going to be before you become that person. You have to picture what you want to achieve and feel like you already have it before you can bring it into your reality.
In the great book “Think and Grow Rich,” Napoleon Hill states: “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” He then says: “You are the master of your destiny; you can influence, direct and control your environment. And you can make your life what you want it to be.”
Therefore, to have what you want, there is no magic trick. It is not a new philosophy. Most of you know about it, and if you do not, you should start paying attention. The reason is that just about anyone who is successful knows.
“Everything is created twice; first in the mind and then in reality.” – Robin Sharma
The Power behind What You Want
There are energy and power far greater than we can comprehend which is at play here. And you can either, use it, live in harmony with it, create with it, or run in fear from it and ignore it.
You cannot focus on where you are right now and expect to get what you want or where you want to be. If you want to change your life, you need to get your mind off all your problems. You need to release your mind from all limitations and focus on the outcome you want in your life.
Think of What You Want
Think exactly where you want to be and what you want. Make a very detailed list of all the things you want. Then write down what it is going to take to get there. Whatever do you need to do? What do you need to learn? Who do you need to connect with to get there?
Do not focus on your limitations or the things that are holding you back, but rather focus on what you need to get there. Believe you will get where you want to be. If you have a money challenge, focus on how you can get the money you need and not on your lack of money.
Tips to Achieve What You Want
- To get what you want; focus on what can you do and what you must do. Then do that.
- Be unrealistic. Nothing great was ever achieved by a realist.
- Set audacious goals that even intimidate you.
- Stretch yourself to your limits as you are capable of much more than you give yourself credit for.
- Having a plan B only distracts you from plan A.
- Focus on your goal to the exclusion of everything else.
- Give your efforts toward your greatest strengths to experience success.
- To be great, you must strive for greatness.
- Picture what you want in your mind first, before it ever becomes a reality.
- Be convinced of your success.
- In your imagination, live in your new home, drive the new car, and see your marvelous spouse, before it ever becomes a reality.
- Believe in your ability before anyone else will. Have faith in your capacity to succeed.
- Ask yourself: “Why not me, why not now?” So, never underestimate yourself.
- Keep moving forward.
So, in summary, remember that to get where you want to be, you have to see it. You have to be unrealistic while striving and putting in the work. But you have to see, live, feel and experience what you want in your mind first. All of it while you believe, know, act to then move forward.
