Does it really work?
Coaches often talk about visualization, imagining yourself in the role of your life, the movie about you being happy and successful. And when you visualize it you will have more changes to realize that dream.
So first of al you need to be able to imagine what that career is about that seems so incredible, you something think it’s almost criminal to have it. So we must stop thinking we are not allowed to have that dream because it seems too unrealistic or even insane.
We have to believe that to play in that movie of our life might even make us win an Oscar.
And we should stop waiting to be discovered. Coaches will also say that once you you’ve started boldly and consistently stepping into leadership, sharing your voice, and doing things that scare the hell out of you, that’s is actually when people will notice you.
I do not say we need to stop being humble and open to guidance. However we need to be careful as some feedback and advice, might come from people that do not understand what you are up. No one else is going to build the life you want for you. No one else will even be able to completely understand it. But probably along the way the most amazing souls will show up to cheer you on. At least that is for the moment the feeling I have personally, you lose some on the way off course but that is also the way things go nothing lasts forever without change, even the best relationships become greater or stop.
Maybe in this year I will stop imagining that I want to be universally known as “a nice person”
Sometimes I hesitate to share what I imagine, because I think what I imagine today might not be the same image as what I visualize in some months from now.
I realize that is actually ok, that we should not only start the visualization when it is totally clear, because it will always change. That is the beauty of life.
Talking about Oscars, successful movies very often have a sequel. And do you also like watching good series? You imagine something and some episodes later it changed, great isn’t it?
So does it really work? I do not know, but I will dare to give it a try, without risks life is boring anyway.
