The following exercise is designed to help you clarify your vision. Although you could do this as a strictly mental exercise by just thinking about the answers and then writing them down, I want to encourage you to go deeper than that. If you do, you will get deeper answers that serve you better.
Start by putting on some relaxing music and sitting quietly in a comfortable environment where you won’t be disturbed. Then, close your eyes and ask your subconscious mind to give you images of what your ideal life would look like if you could have it exactly the way you want it, in each of the following categories.
*1. First, focus on the financial area of your life.*
(This is most important for Financial Services Intermediaries.)
What is your annual income? What does your cash flow look like?
How much money do you have in savings and investments?
What is your total net worth?
How would you like your home look like?
Where should it be located? Does it have a view?
What kind of yard and landscaping you want?
Is there a pool or lake facing your dream house?
What colour should the walls be?
How should the furniture look like?
Are there paintings hanging in the rooms?
What do they look like?
Walk through your dream house, filling in all of the details. At this point, don't worry about how you will get the house. Don't sabotage yourself by saying "I can’t live in imagination because I don’t make enough money" Once you give your mind's eye the picture, your mind will solve the "not enough money" challenge.
Visualise what kind of car you are driving and any important possessions your finances have provided.2. Next.
Visualize your ideal job or career.
What is your profession? Where are you working? What are you doing?
With whom are you associated?
What kind of clients or customers do you have? If you are an independent professional what is your earnings like?3. Then focus on your free time, your recreation time. What are you doing with your family and friends in the free time you have created for yourself?
What hobbies are you pursuing?
What kinds of vacations do you take?
What do you do for fun?4. Next.
What is your ideal vision of your body and your physical health?
Are you free of all diseases? How long do you want live? Are you open, relaxed, in an ecstatic state of bliss all day long?
Are you full of vitality?
Are you flexible as well as strong?
Do your exercise, eat good food, and drink lots of water.5. Then move on to your ideal vision of your relationships with your family and friends.
What is your relationship with your family like?
Who are your friends?
What is the quality of your relationships with your friends?
What do those friendships feel like?
Are they loving, supportive, empowering?
What kinds of things do you do together?6. What about the personal arena of your life?
Do you see yourself going back to school, getting training, attending workshops, seeking therapy for a past hurt, or growing spirituality?
Do you meditate or go on spiritual retreats.
Do you want to learn to play an instrument or write your autobiography?
Do you want to run a marathon or take an art class?
Do you want to travel to other countries?7. Finally.
Focus on the community you live in, the community you have chosen.
What does it look like when it is operating perfectly? What kinds of community activities take place there?
What about your charitable work?
What do you do to help others and make a difference? How often do you participate in these activities?
Whom are you helping?
You can write down your answers as you go, or you can do the whole exercise first and then open your eyes and write them down. In either case, make unsure you capture everything in writing as soon as you complete the exercise. Everyday, review the vision you have written down. This will keep your conscious and subconscious minds focused on your vision, and as you apply the other principles and tools in the book, you will begin to manifest all the different aspects of your vision.
