How To Be Successful In Life – Know You’ll succeed
Convince Yourself That You Will Achieve Success And You Will
Achieving success through convincing yourself that you can achieve it is all about the power of creative visualization. Creative visualization is the ability to use your imagination; to see images of yourself as successful in your mind and then to take the steps, which mean that vision of yourself as successful, becomes reality. It’ not some weird New Age thinking that many people believe it to be – it’s about seeing what you want and having the confidence to go for it – taking control of your own life and future.
How does it work?
In creative visualization you use your imagination to create a clear image, idea, or feeling of something you wish to make come true. Then you need to keep that picture in mind and think about it regularly – a few minutes each day at least – until you actually achieve what you have been imagining.
The goal you want to achieve can be anything – just imagine yourself having achieved it and how different you will feel then. Some will say that this technique works on a spiritual level, your thoughts going out into the world and positively affecting the people and events around you so that the correct circumstances for you to achieve your ambition are created. Maybe, maybe not – but it *will* change *you*.
Overcome your limited thinking
By imagining the goal you want and seeing yourself as having achieved it, you start to convince your self-conscious mind that you can really do it. Believing you can actually do something will change your whole way of approaching a task. You start to see how you can acquire new skills and achieve personal growth. Personal growth and new skills make more things possible. Perhaps this is the real strength of creative visualization.
So how do you do it?
Creative visualization is so easy, anyone can do it.
First, relax. Forget about all the problems and the things which are distracting you from your goal in the here and now.
Second – make your mind actively *see* you achieving that goal. You will feel yourself smiling and you will automatically think about what you must have done to male yourself successful like that. You’ll realize how good it feels to be successful in your aim.
That’s really all you consciously do for a while. Just practise it at least twice a day, about ten minutes each time. That really gives your subconscious mind the idea that you want this thing and that you’re going t have it.
Reject negative thoughts
Let the positive picture of the ambition you saw yourself achieving give you strength to counter doubts and fears. Convince yourself your dream is worth achieving. That way, you’ll approach difficulties positively and with a practical frame of mind. You’ll know that obstacles aren’t going to stop you for long so you’ll be more likely to just get on and find ways to overcome them.
All you really need in order to become successful is to keep trying, despite the obstacles that are put in your way. Get around each one as and when it arises with some practical plans. Creative visualization helps to give you the confidence you need to not give up and to meet these challenges head on and it enables you to think more creatively about ways to meet those challenges, which lie between you and your ambitions.
To your success,
