“You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.” -Rosalynn Smith Carter
Good morning! Envisioning the target of a goal is a great tool while implementing new ideas into your personal improvement plan. It’s so easy to read about a good idea, or see some great new technique on television and think, “That describes me! I should do that!” We plan to take a new approach to an old problem, but when the opportunity arises, we quickly find ourselves choosing the familiar-even if it isn’t working.
Change requires energy. Yet, today’s world doesn’t often leave us with an overflow of energy. To help choose change instead of the familiar, envision the result of the goal you are working toward. Imagine yourself or your life as you want it to be-then choose a route or implement a new technique that will help to move you toward that goal.
Your Turn: Take a moment and close your eyes. Envision your goal. As you go through the ups and downs of choosing new patterns over old, recall this image to offer encouragement on your journey.
Today’s Affirmation: I envision where I want to go-and then I go there!
