cat-money-crown-jewellery-richWe all want something. We have our ideas and dreams. We wish that the world would be different for us, and for others.

So often this thinking just stays in our head – an itch we never really scratch.

And if it stays in our head, it remains a figment of our imagination.

Stop for a moment and recall one of those dreams you have. Got it?

Now do two things:

1. Say it out loud, and maybe embellish it a little
2. Write it down, with a few extra details

Now, notice how you feel about that dream; and how you feel about the future and your ability to influence the future? By the way, one of those two things will work better than the other for you.

Interesting isn’t it. We all know about this stuff. Visualising, getting specific, etc. – and yet I am always surprised at the impact it has when I remember to do it.

So, this is my reminder to me, and to you 🙂

Here are some more reasons to do those two simple things.

My best wishes, Paul
