See it and you’ll be it

Visualization plays a key role in your life, whether you realize it or not. What you contantly visualize and think about is generally what you become.

If you are always dwelling on the negative -- your health problems, the money you owe, your troubled relationships -- then you give even more power to these things and they continue to manifest in your life in abundance.

By contrast, when you constantly visualize life the way you want it to be -- optimum health, increased income, free of debt -- then these things will begin to appear.

It almost seems like magic, but there is nothing magical about it. Our minds work by association. There is so much information coming at us on a daily basis that we can’t possibly process it all. So we experience life and relate to the world in terms of things we already know. You create a model in your mind that allows you to make sense of the world around you.

When that model is positive, and focused on your goals, then you see the opportunities in all situations. Make a habit of constantly focusing on the positive and visualizing the person you want to become. When you regularly visualize yourself as successful and effective, then your mind will find a way to bring that visualization into reality.

— Ralph Marston
