At this point I was discovering so many teachers and really a new way of life. One podcast led to a book, that led to a program, that led to a class, that led to new friends. Life was rolling along and I was learning everything I could along the way, seeing improvements in myself, my life and everything around me.
During this time I had heard Mel Robbins speak on one of the many podcasts I listen to. I started following her and in January 2019 I completed her Mindset Reset program. Mel is someone who doesn’t beat around the bush. She’s up front and honest. So, her program and approach woke me up and got me moving on a lot of things that were just swimming ideas in my head. For Mel, it’s all about taking action. And I had learned just what taking action could do for me, now I was going to take it to another level.
Getting back to goals. Mel says you must do a visualization exercise for every goal you have. If you haven’t done visualization before, you basically imagine yourself doing the very thing you are aiming to achieve. Not only are you picture it, but you need to feel the positive emotions that come with the visualization. Because your brain doesn’t know the difference between real memories and visualization. She suggests doing this practice for 30 seconds every day. This way you are developing the skill as if you were actually doing it. Wow! That’s amazing!

I have a morning routine that includes my meditation time and reading, among other things, so I decided to add in visualization time. What I love about this process is the overall impact has when I’m only dedicating a small amount of my time to the practice.
