Well, you could sell your business after 5+ years and let other entrepreneurs take the lead to develop your business further take your profits and move on to something else. Which is totally okay as some of us will have ideas that take us so far, yes others can add to our ideas and that can help take us a little further. Its okay to be honest with yourself and say 'I am out' I/we have done all I/we took the business so far, now it's time to hand the keys over to someone else.
So for today, I leave you with some top tips, to support you in starting to visualise, which can be used to improve your dreaming and obtaining your goals/visions.
How to encourage and engage your visualisation techniques:
- Start with something small and basic such as an apple.
- Look at the apple from different angles and points
- Once you have a clear image, bring your focus closer towards the apple, looking at its skin.
- Is it smooth or rough?
- Are there any holes?
- Is it a green apple or a red one?
This works to engage your creativity while exercising your visualisation skills. Spend time observing the details. That way, you will learn to stay focused on the visualisation exercise and not let irrelevant thoughts distract you. When you begin to have very few distractions at all during your times of visualisation, you have made great progress.
If this is your first time working on these skills and you realise that you cannot focus for long, or hold the images you want, this is a sign that you just need more practise exercising these skills.
• Draw out what you see before trying to hold the image in your mind.
• Play music to support your senses.
• Find a place you feel most relaxed.
• Explore ways to spark your creativity.
The Power of Visualising
There is a recurring theme around gaining excellent performance across many professions. Several top achievers know the importance of picturing themselves already playing the part, using their visualisation to accelerate the vision towards reality. Applying belief, creativity and imagination, they repetitively play the image over.
