04 Jun Visualization – It Works Both Ways
Many of you know me from “The Secret.” Although I believe in the Law of Attraction, I know it takes action to make it happen. However, getting that mindset right – wrapped around your clear intention – is what creates the action which results in that success.
An example – When I was in high school, I would run my basketball games through my head. I’d visualize taking the shot just before the buzzer and making it. You know what, though? If I just stood there and held the ball, instead of trying for that shot, I wouldn’t score those extra two points – no matter how often I ran it through my head. That positive visualization, though, got me in the mindset to take action when it was time and succeed by landing that 2 point shot (sometimes 3 points!)
Visualization + Action is a powerful tool, but it also works both ways. It’s possible to paralyze yourself running scenarios through your mind where things don’t go your way. I’ve seen this with my girlfriends. They know they are angry with their husbands. So, they run a spat through their heads so many times that they actually create a more contentious situation. How? Because they are so worked up for it. It’s not just because they visualized the scenario. It’s how the feelings that visualization created translated into action – in that case, negative. In essence, they entered angry and they got angry results?
How are you entering your business? Are you attacking your projects each day with a Yes! Energy, get it done, success is mine, attitude? Or, are you looking at your to-do list, shaking your head about the impossibility of it all, and then taking action by spending your morning considering your list over a latte?
Here’s the long and the short of it. Set your mindset and get started! It doesn’t matter where you are. You don’t have to “get ready” to work. Just work! You don’t have to “get ready” to come to 3 Days to Cash. Just come!
What you tell yourself about your business and about the level of success you are capable of achieving can either make or break you. So start saying Yes! to some positive visualization. Forget about getting ready and be ready with the right mindset.
Now go make some money!
