The Power of Visuals
Throughout our days, our minds race with thousands upon thousands of thoughts. "If other people could only know what I think about during the day!," we say to ourselves. In our head, our thoughts contain our true selves that nobody else knows about. Our strengths, our weaknesses, our biggest fears, our dreams. We have visions of ourselves singing in front of large audiences, making a rousing speech, helping large groups of people, living in a beautiful home. Our mind contains our TRUE dreams, that we don't express with our tongue or our voice.
The only problem with this, is that this is where many of these dreams live and die. We never express them, we never let them out of our waning thoughts. Because of this, we never let them become REAL. We never let them truly affect us in ways they are meant to. A quick thought, a short mental image, simple is not enough. Achieving a dream takes major motivation, and it must touch you at the core to truly drive you. Your dreams should keep you awake at night.
Today, let your dreams escape your mind. How? Grab a pen and paper.
Write your dreams down. Being able to see this in your own handwriting has a power that cannot be described. Then pen will move faster than ever before. This isn't some grocery list or signature on a bill. These are your goals, your dreams, your innermost thoughts of your life. Take the time out of your day to accomplish this small feat. You'll be glad you did. It will be the start of something great.
