One reason why most of our lives are the way they are right now is because we are afraid to live our dreams. We are afraid to desire success and go after it; and imagine what having real success will make us feel. We are so used to putting our confidence on the things and circumstances that are happening around us, how overwhelming life has become that we fail to realize that we have within us the power to change our lives and our present circumstances. – our minds.
Instead of believing in our inner abilities and power that God has given us, we spend our entire lives focusing and believing in our powerlessness, our limitations and restrictions. We defuse our powers and our capacity to effect positive change in our lives with our negative thinking and lack of faith.
We focus only on the obstacles in our path; our lack of money and connections and we forget that any human working with God is greater than any obstacle or opposition on his or her path. Until you begin to see yourself getting out of that situation, you can never come out of it. You will instead be buried by that challenge like many folks have done.
All the people I know who have achieved success in their lives have actually done the same thing – seeing themselves in their minds eyes actually becoming successful before they achieved it physically. Recently I watched a news channel where a popular TV news anchor and show host, Christiane Amapour interviewed a journalist who was held in prison for 400 days and was being charged with treason.
While campaigns mounted for the release of this journalist and his colleagues in the real world, the journalist told Amanpour when asked that in those 400 days, he pictured himself walking out of that prison free, and he did it for 400 times. Imagine the power of visualization! And the outcome for the man turned out to be exactly as he had visualized it.
Folks if we are to ever achieve success in our lives and make our dreams come true, we must do as this journalist and all other successful people did. We must daily consciously picture, visualize and imagine our desired outcome. “This is the entering wedge which will split the difficulties ahead of us, which will open the doors which were shut against us.”
