Developing the Habit of Exercising Your Will

For many years, I’ve actively and consciously used my ability to visualize.  In fact, much of my success today can be attributed to creating goals, visualizing their fulfillment, and ultimately achieving my desired results.

Yet for some strange reason, I’ve gotten off track.  (Hey…now and then it happens to all of us, right?)

But how could this be?  I mean, c’mon!  I STUDY, WRITE, and TEACH about the power of visualization!  Heck, I’ve even developed my own proprietary technique (called Imaginative Strategic Visualization).

So what happened?

Well, friends, LIFE happened.  It’s a funny thing [life]… Just when you think you’ve got a handle on it, the handle breaks!

Somehow over the course of the past couple of years, I’ve gotten sidetracked by others’ reality.  And the sad part is, I’ve let it affect my own.

I’ve maybe spent a bit too much time teaching, and not quite enough time practicing.

And recently I was reminded of a line from a very special book written by Genevieve Behrend, entitled “Your Invisible Power”.

It said “When your understanding grasps the power to visualize your heart’s desire, and hold it with your will, it attracts to you all things requisite to the fulfillment of that picture by the harmonious vibrations of the Law of Attraction”.

You see…just like you, I’ve created the goals, and I’ve visualized the outcomes. 

But recently, I’ve been neglecting the most important ingredient…holding that vision with my will.

And when I’m talking about “will”, I’m referring to the ability to focus on one thing (the goal) and one thing only, to the exclusion of all other thought.

In the world we live in today, it’s so easy to get distracted and lose that focus.  Yet in order for you and I to realize our dreams, we must carve out time to focus on and visualize the results we desire.

The more energy, emotion, and belief that we can put into our visualization, the more “real” the picture will become in our physical world.

I’d like to encourage you today to develop the habit of exercising your will, and you will certainly attract “all things requisite to the fulfillment of that picture”.
