In most of my posts like Mind it, Creative Visualization – Why I do it?, Goal Setting & Achievement – Raising Standards or Imagination – Our Inner Power; I have always highlighted the power of our mind. How our mind needs to focus on our visions or desires to achieve it and how by visualizing our desires it becomes easier to locate opportunities that were not clearly visible earlier.
We can help our mind to focus on our desires by repeating positive affirmations that highlight our goals. We all know a picture is worth a thousand words so we can make a beautiful collage of photos that show our desires and hang it somewhere we can see many times a day; this is called a vision board. You can make a digital version of it and make it your screensaver.
If you love daydreaming then visualization will not be a challenge for you. It will not matter if you use written affirmations or a vision board. Now what if you get distracted with negative thoughts while you try to visualize or it does not come that easily to you or you just got a bit bored of it and would love to try something new. Making a movie about your desires can be the easiest way to visualize you goals.
A movie can be a series of fast moving still pictures that you used for your vision board or you can actually record yourself talking about your goals and desires like you are talking to a friend or giving an interview. To make it more interesting you can hold one of the vision board pictures in front of the camera while talking about your desires. Add your favorite motivational song and you got yourself the best movie you will ever see in your life.
Tips to remember while making a movie:
1. The movie should be interesting, cheerful, positive and enthusiastic. Its motive is to encourage you.
2. Keep it short so you can watch it every morning and night before and after bed.
3. Keep it on your smart phone. You can enjoy it while commuting.
4. Keep it very specific to your real goals and desire. Remember you are making this for you and no one else, so don’t put stuff on it just to make it look good. Everything on that movie should mean something to you. Be honest about your desires or the whole exercise will be a waste of time.
