"Many, many years ago, a young boy happened to walk
by a newspaper publishing office. He stopped and peered through the
window and was amazed at the activity he saw in the office. The
activity that surrounded one man in the office especially
interested him. It was the chief editor of the newspaper. The young
boy watched in amazement as the editor barked orders to the
employees around him.
The boy sensed the power that the chief editor possessed - how the
entire newspaper enterprise seemed to revolve around him. The young
boy began to visualize himself as that editor. Every day he pictured
himself as the editor of that newspaper; he dreamed about it at
night. He created a detailed vision in his mind of himself in that
editor's chair. He re-created that vision in his mind day after day.
Who was that young boy? His name was Roger Ferger.Not only did he
become the editor of a large newspaper, he eventually went on to
become the owner and publisher of the Cincinnati Inquirer,
one of the largest newspaper empires in the country today.
Are you visualizing who you want to become?
What is Positive Visualization?
It can be summarized in this one statement:
"We were created in the image of our creator, therefore
we are creators." Think about this statement very carefully.
Everything that you, or anyone else has done since the beginning of
time, began first with a thought.
If you look back at the careers of successful people, you will
find that almost every one of them first visualized who
they wanted to be...long before they actually achieved success.
Stop everything you are doing right now and think about what you
want to accomplish in your life in this new year. Maybe you want a
new career, or you want to be fit and trim and in great shape,
perhaps you want to start a new business, or buy that dream house
you always wanted.
Make a list on paper right now of the things you want to accomplish
this year. Make it a habit to read this list to yourself every day
and visualize that you have already reached the goals in your list.
Create a detailed movie in your mind of the new you that you want
to see in 2007. Be very detailed, if your goal was a new home,
picture yourself walking into that new home,picture every detail,
the color, the style of home, imagine the kitchen in great detail.
If your goal was a new career or promotion, picture yourself in
that new office, believe it with all your heart as if it were
already true. No matter what your goals are, visualize them every
You will find that one day,your visualization will become a
reality! Don't ask me how it works...just know that it works.
Believe me...I have experienced it in my own life."
