Do you have a vision for yourself? Perhaps it is a vision of losing weight, getting a promotion, learning to ski, or becoming an artist. Everyone has hopes and dreams, envisioning them is the next step to helping them come true.
Let’s say you want to lose weight. Start by making a list of the reasons you want to lose weight. Maybe it’s so you will feel better, move about easier, get healthier, or even to make yourself look prettier. Be honest, whatever your reasons, you need to write them all down.
Now take each reason and concentrate on each one. Instead of concentrating on losing weight, I want you to think about the significance of each of your reasons for losing weight.
What will it mean to you to feel better? Can you envision a thinner you, feeling better than you do presently?
How will you move about once you have lost weight? Can you see the thinner you, moving about gracefully? How will you walk? What will it be like to have less weight to move around?
Imagine yourself in control of your health, by making wise decisions about the foods you eat. Think about losing all the guilt associated with poor eating habits. Concentrate on the sense of empowerment you will feel when you take charge of your life.
Let yourself daydream about working out, mastering skills, and shaping your own body. Work up a mental picture of the body that you desire. Not someone else’s body, but your body… thin, toned and beautiful.
Next, think about how your clothes will fit. Imagine trying on clothes in a smaller size. Maybe there’s a style you have longed for but didn’t look right on your current figure. Imagine wearing any style clothing that you wish.
Picture yourself in photos with friends. Compare an old photo to how you will begin to look as you lose weight.
Now allow yourself time to meditate on these visions. It is possible to bring about change in your life. Maybe you’ve tried before and failed, that doesn’t matter now. All you need is today.
You can succeed. It’s not always easy, but it’s worth the extra work when you see your dream come true.
