There is no question Visualization helps you achieve your Dreams.
Many top athletes around the world have used it to improve their performances — without ever physically hitting a ball or making a shot. It has been proven to work, and I encourage everyone who has a goal to begin visualizing that you have already achieved it.
Also, proper planning is also incredibly important, however success — in this dimension at least — does not come from Planning and Visualization alone, it comes from Action. So here are some useful tips to help you move yourself from ‘Vision’ to “Action”
The best way to get started is to actually get started.
Lao Tzu once said “the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step’ and it is so true. To move from Vision to Action to first have to at first move. So whatever it is that you have been putting off, simply begin today.
If you wait for that perfect moment to begin, then you will always be waiting!
(2) Have Faith
Having faith is the next step towards Action. MLK encouraged people to “take the first step in Faith. You do not have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step”
You do not always need to have a fully backed plan, sometimes you simply need to begin and take that first step in Faith.
(3) Work Hard
Michael Jordan once said that he always felt that if he put in the hard work then success would come, and while working hard is no guarantee of success, not working hard is usually a guarantee of failure.
Now I am not suggesting the type of hard work that gives you no time for anything else… i believe Balance is the true mark of success…. but none the less to move from vision to action you must work hard.
The Universe can not be cheated.He knows your intentions. Hard work is often rewarded.
(4) Expect Failure
Similarly, Winston Churchill once defined success as ” the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm”
So if these great men knew that failing was a part of winning, then we all must also incorporate this into our plans for Action. Expect some type of failure, but keep the lessons that come with it.
