This Week’s Step: #3- See/Visualize Yourself Achieving Your Goals/Vision of Success

Before setting off on the path to your own success you must first be able to see yourself achieving your success.  You must believe that you can do it.

As motivational speaker Dr. Cherie Carter-Scott states “Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible.”   

One way to do this is through Creative Visualization. “Creative Visualization is the technique of using your imagination to create what you want in your life.” Shakti Gawain

During Creative visualization your imagination or ability to create a mental image, idea or picture in your mind is used to create an image of something or situation that you want to manifest or create. Many experts suggest keeping pictures of the goals that you want to achieve.  It is more powerful if you have a picture of yourself in this situation.

Try these Success Coaching Exercises…

1) Writing affirmations or statements of what you wish to do is a useful tool for this step.  For example you would write “I am a successful college professor, I love my job and my students love learning from me.”  Really put as many details as you can, really imagine what you will feel like when you are living your vision of success and write this all down. Put these affirmations were you can see them.

2) Make a Vision Board or Treasure Map  

3) Try the Pink Bubble Technique
