I’m a huge believer in visualization.
Not just the type of visualization where you close your eyes and try to see in your mind’s eye something that you want, but rather the type of visualization where you use your imagination to immerse yourself in whatever you’re visualizing with all your senses.
The type of “visualization” where you can imagine seeing something in your mind’s eye, and you can imagine hearing it, and you can imagine feeling it, and maybe even tasting and smelling it.
Just imagine this for a second…
… imagine going to your fridge, and opening the door, and finding a large yellow lemon…
… and imagine taking that lemon out of the fridge, and putting it on a cutting board, and taking a large knife and slicing that lemon right in half…
… and imagine looking at one half of that lemon and noticing that you sliced one of the seeds inside in half…
… and now imagine picking that seed out and just seeing a perfectly ripe and juicy lemon…
… and now imagine cutting away the peel carefully, so that now all you are left with is just the juicy lemon…
… and now imagine taking that half a lemon and putting it in your mouth and biting down on it…
Could you imagine that?
Did you mouth water a bit imagining that?
Could you taste, smell, see, feel the lemon? Could you hear the knife cutting the lemon?
It is this type of visualization which I believe can help us to achieve our dreams.
The more we engage in this type of visualization, the faster we can manifest what we desire.
But how do you visualize NOT having a job?
The challenge with trying to do that is that when we try to visualize NOT having a job, the first thing that pops up into our minds is OUR JOBS!
We start thinking and visualizing in great detail all the things we hate about our jobs!
By doing that, we are doing exactly the opposite of what we want to do.
You can’t manifest what you want, by visualizing what you HATE – LOL.
So how do we do this then?
Well, here’s the trick.
When you’re trying to visualize freedom from your job, stop thinking about your job altogether.
Instead pick 3-10 things that you LOVE and ENJOY doing, an visualize yourself doing those things instead.
For example, one thing I love doing is blogging and creating YouTube videos and music so I visualize myself doing that.
Another thing I love doing is hanging out with my wife and my pets so I visualize myself doing that.
Another thing I love doing is building a painting tabletop miniatures so I visualize myself doing that.
See what I mean?
You can’t manifest what you want to be doing with your life, by constantly thinking about what you hate about your job.
So you have to switch things around in your mind… just completely forget about your job, and visualize what you’d enjoy doing instead.
Don’t worry about HOW you’re going to be able to ever quit your job, or replace your income, and just focus on what you want.
People and opportunities will show up in your life which will help you to get there, but first you have to get good at visualizing what you want your life to look like in great detail.
Visualize what your days would be like if you had the financial freedom to no longer have to work a job full time.
Try to engage your imagination the same way you imagined that lemon.
Make it that real, or even more real than that!
When you can do that, things will begin to shift for you very quickly.
But only if you can keep your mind off of what you don’t want, and focused on what you DO want. 🙂
