The Power of Visualization (Part Six): You Can Have What See

Everything you can imagine is real (Pablo Picasso)
Nothing is truly impossible. It is only impossible to the person who has refused to open up his/her mind to conquer it. “In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.” (Nikos Kazantzakis) Visualization is the process of affirming our belief and ensuring there is no enemy within. As the old African proverb goes, "If there is no enemy within, the enemy outside has no power over you."

Visualization helps awaken our "En-theos" (God within, enthusiasm) to cooperate with our endeavor. As it were, we are advertising to our own self what we desire. The onus is on each of us to rightly frame our experience of life in a way that empowers us today and in the tomorrows. As Sean Stephenson so rightly put it, “Never believe a prediction that does not empower you.” And, it does not matter who is making the prediction. Be it your pastor, your imam, your own very self, or whosoever.

Refuse to believe it, unless it empowers you. Even if you have a 1% chance of success, what do you stand to lose by going for it, anyway? You are already on the ground. It is time to come back up. Go for it! Life has a way of favoring the bold and the brave. The modus operandi of champions, which you are, is, “Be strong. Stand tall like a man, or you will become a slave. Be a man, and fight!” (The Bible) It is your life! You have to define it in a way that makes you win.

If you can see it, you can have it.
If you don’t have a reference to base your desired success, you can create (synthesize) one. You can stand on the shoulders of others who have made it. If they did, you can. Keep their picture before you. Your subconscious mind will not know the difference. Keep your heart fixed on the success stories of those giants, like Ben Cooper did, for you are a giant in the waking, yourself. Awaken the giant in you. "Dare to visualize a world in which your most treasured dreams have become true." (Ralph Marston)

When you focus on the same things the giants focused on, it will create the same state - confidence, and disposition in you. The ball is in your court. Your limit is not determined by your history or your biology. It is only determined by your aspiration. What are you aspiring to? Who do you want to be? Can you see it? You can raise your limit to a limitless status. You can ride on the experience of others. You can climb to whatever height in life you choose.

You can climb and sit on the shoulders of the giants who have gone ahead of you. You can key into their mental imagery. You can create the same state and disposition. You can synthesize their experience. You can win. And, not just win. You can re-write the history of your generations yet unborn.

What are you waiting for?
