If you’ve been on the planet for more than a year, you’ve heard the term “Creative Visualization.” Using imagination to make your dreams and goals happen is in the creative person’s wheel house. I’ve been using creative visualization for many years. In that time, I’ve built a very successful project management career and have published five books.
Prosperity and accomplishment are wonderful. They aren’t, however, the most important goals in my life. I became sick several years ago with (at the time) was a mysterious illness. Horrible stomach issues. Constant flu like symptoms. Worst of all, I was a depressed mess with no hope. Then I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue. Though there is no cure, it can be managed. Getting healthy and taking my life back became my main goal.
Eternal vigilance. I maintain my health and continue to thrive. How? The key to successful creative visualization is a positive attitude. Being stubborn helps too.
Be Positive. Be Happy.
Is it possible to be positive all the time (24/7)? Nope. Everyone falls off the happy path occasionally. Having a positive attitude means you have confidence in your ability to make your dreams come true.
“I’m positive I can learn this new skill.”
“I’m positive I can create my art.”
“I’m positive I will find a way to accomplish my goals.”
“Learning something new makes me happy, because I’m doing something to help myself grow.”
“Creating my art fulfils me as a person.”
“Working toward my goals gives me a sense of accomplishment.”
Final Thought: Attitudes are contagious. We decide to be miserable or happy. Each new day brings a choice. Make the decision to try for a positive attitude and it will happen for you. Like anything else, it takes practice.
