Hey Team!

Have you ever had a dream?

Can you remember a time when you wanted something so badly you felt in throughout your entire body?

That dream may have been something "calling" you...

That could of been your calling... maybe it was...

Maybe you acted on it....

Or... maybe there is something you feel right now that you need to get closer to...

I want to tell you what some of the best performers do... 

Performers in Sports, Business, The Arts....

They Visualize success before it happens...

They Visualize what they want to happen before it actually happens...

They Visualize themselves acting, being, achieving, before IT actually happens...

That is what today's blog is about... achieving through seeing...

You must BELIEVE before you can see....

That is why I always hated the saying, "You have to see it to believe it."... it is actually the opposite!

So how do we start this process?

Well.. the first part of the process is: BEING HONEST WITH YOURSELF...

You must get clear on what you want, why you want it, and learn the WHY behind the WHY... 

Wanting something is great.. but know WHY you want it... that is the power...

STEP 1.  Get Clear on WHAT YOU WANT...

STEP 2.  Get Clear on WHY YOU WANT IT...

STEP 3.  Get Clear on The WHY Behind the WHY....

Next... 

STEP 4: Unplug.. no phone, no radio, no tv...

Find a "favorite" place in your house... your car.. whatever!

STEP 5: Slow down your breathing with long, slow, breaths... 

Then as you breathe in, start to see yourself in an "environment" that you want to excel in...

STEP 6: Put yourself in the environment you desire to excel in...

EX. If you are an athlete, see yourself on the field... see yourself up at bat... see yourself wherever your "needle" moving actions take place...

Then.. SEE the result...

STEP 7: See your results... see the success...see  yourself achieving EXACTLY what you want....

Visualize your results...

I remember Andy Pettitte telling me he would see the ball doing exactly what he wanted before he threw every pitch... he would then match what he just "visualized" and his chances of executing went way up!

Do this for 10-15 minutes each morning...

Attack your day before the day starts..

See the deal going through...

See yourself winning a negotiation..

See yourself getting the promotion..

See yourself getting the game winning hit...

See yourself as a CHAMPION...

Why?

Because that is what you are...

That is what you are training to be...

A true Champion...

Make it happen through visualization...
