Note: This is my personal aha from reading the book, The One Minute Millionaire – The Enlightened Way to Wealth written by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen. Feel free to check out the previous aha blog post tagged under aha’s or start from here. Whatever works for you.
Aha number 11: Clarity is Power:
This chapter is a simple concept but I think it takes work to implement. The authors quoted a success philosopher named Neville, “Don’t think of your goals, think from your goals”. Wow – say what? I re-read this several times so that I was sure it sank in. “Don’t think of your goals, think from your goals”.
We are all used to creating our goals but how about visualizing from our goal. Actually, see our self as having accomplished our goal. Visualize it all – feel everything about it. The authors shared how famous golfer, Jack Nicklaus and 1984 Olympic gymnast, Mary Lou Retton both visualize their success before actually succeeding at it. Visualizing was part of their preparation for success.
Can we truly start thinking from our goals? Can the clarity of the vision really help us achieve our goal? I think so. Try it. Visualize your goal as if you have already accomplished it. Can you sense your energy change – it is almost like practicing something over and over until you get it just right. If you keep visualizing your goal and get it clear then eventually you are going to accomplish that goal.
I like this concept – Clarity is power.
