3 Keys to See a Clear Vision to Wonderful Success

The power of visualization is well documented.  AND…I’m not talking about some unique gift of some comic book super hero.

Yes, Superman is reputed to have powerful x-ray vision that allows him to see through solid objects.  He, also, supposedly has a form of superhuman vision that allows him to see with an acuity well beyond that of mortal man.  In that regard, he has microscopic and telescopic powers!

Wow!  You should be so lucky!

Well, I can’t help you with superhuman vision characteristics.  But…I can give you some ideas that will help you achieve greater success and those ideas have directly to do with your vision.man-407808_1920

More specifically the ideas have to do with developing your ability to visualize your success before you actually achieve it.

Why would you want to do that?

The best answer can be found in a great article on the subject.

So, assuming you want to maximize your chances at achieving your aspirations and goals developing a clear vision of them is critical.  There are three keys to being able to do that.

The first is…

the degree of your motivation to want to reach those aspirations/goals. Whatever your pursuit…if you have a huge emotional drive propelling you, then you will achieve the objective of the pursuit.

Think about your motivation level and its relationship to reaching your goals by using an old truism.

You’ve probably heard the saying, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.” True.

However, someone added an extension to that thought…” but you sure as heck can make it thirsty!”

Visualized and clearly defined, written goals for which you have a compelling reason to achieve them make you thirsty. They make you taste the full flavor of your opportunities in life.

The next critical key…

to developing a clear vision is the level of knowledge you bring to the table, so to speak.

There is no denying the old adage that knowledge is power.  With that in mind, I want to share with you the knowledge of my formula for success and then build on the elements of that formula.

The formula is: You – Fear = Greater Success.

As human beings we all avoid what we fear. We fear the unknown. Therefore, we avoid the unknown. I don’t know who first expressed those thoughts but I do know they are as accurate and relevant today as when first spoken.

eyes-394176_1280What is so limiting about your fear of the unknown is, by definition, you don’t even know what you fear! You may say things like, “Oh. I’m afraid to try. I just know I won’t be able to do it!”

How do you know that? Do you have some kind of Harry Potter level of wizardry that tells you that in advance of the actual experience?

What a terrible spell to be under. The anecdote to that spell is this:

Your level of knowledge. The less you know the more you fear. Conversely, the more you know the less you fear.

Focusing on visualizing your success helps you better apply your knowledge in achieving it.

If the first two keys, your motivation and knowledge…

are critical to creating a clear vision of your aspirations and goals; the third one is a total derailleur if it doesn’t exist.

 You are not Superman or Superwoman so you can’t realize a vision for success without the help of others.  But—if people are going to be willing to help you, they must feel a sense of trust in you.

The difficulty with building trust is…it’s not easy! I mean…think about it. Can you just say, “Trust me” and people immediately drop their barriers?

Heck we have a pill for everything else. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a pill for trust? “Here swallow this and trust me!” Doesn’t work like that, does it?tablet-428328_1920

This brings us full circle to the first key…your motivation. People have to clearly see that your motivation in interacting with them is sincere. The slightest hint on your part at being totally self-serving in your interaction with other people will deter them from working with you in the most productive way.

The point is ideas from other people can help you better visualize the future you want to create for yourself.

There you have it…the three keys to developing your ability to visualize your success.

They are: your degree of motivation; your knowledge; and your ability to build trust.

It’s like a noted athletic coach once said: “The will to succeed is important, but what’s even more important is the will to prepare.”

Prepare yourself by honing your skills at visualizing your success using those three keys and you unlock the door to a wonderful future.
