Visualizing myself doing something successful or visualizing a particular future event play out to my benefit has stopped me from setting myself up for failure.
Because my attitude towards it will not be of one who is already defeated but of one who sees herself/ himself as one who is a champion.
Acting it out "again" in life would just be a formality because I would have "already" won, in the mind.
You can be anyone, do & have anything you want in your mind, and if these images of positivity are held with positive emotions and the intent to make real in the physical, God will show you how.
All you need to do is to take the inspired action that comes to you in the form of a hunch, instinct, inspiration.
That is God speaking to you, instead of you to Him, and for you to receive all you need to do is take action, especially if this act makes you uncomfortable.
For success lies at the end of your comfort zone.
For success to appear in the physical, it must first be created in the spiritual - that being your mind.
Like Mindset Expert Shelby Collinge put it: "Worry Is A Prayer Of What You Don't Want."
And God answers ALL prayers, most of which we reject because in taking action would take us out of our comfort zone.
At times He speaks so softly that we would need to remove ourselves from noise and find a spot where we even clear all thought and become intimately aware of our breathing, and wait patiently until the voice or idea - which we might even claim as our own - comes to us from within.
An act of going within to find God that takes patients and persistence to master...and courage too.
All the answers you need are within.
Some of which come in the form of visualizing for success (from a house chore to a board meeting presentation), instead of using visualizing for failure which leads to fear, doubt, worry - mental blockers of success.
We tend to go back to our experiences or something someone we held highly said about a particular event in our lives which led to an unwanted outcome.
And it is that outcome we project into the future when something similar arises in our lives.
"It always happens like this, I know it!"
And so it shall, not realising that faith in failure will produce that outcome just like faith in success will produce its corresponding outcome.
It's the movie we play, influence by the people we hang out most with, the tv programmes we watch, the news, and what we say that inspires us to act - at times unconsciously - with the sponsor thought of negativity.
All we can ever create are negative results.
When on the other hand reading and implementing positive, inspiring, motivational, loving information and associating oneself with successful people can only lead to happiness.
Which I believe every human seeks, not knowing that it can be found within. And there's no need to chase it.
If you see it in the mind with the intentional emotional purpose to acquire it (no matter how "unrealistic" it way seem), a way will be shown to you. All that is needed from you is to act when it shows up.
