Three Steps And A Magic Number You Need To Become Wealthy
Visualization is a powerful tool that athletes, coaches, and entrepreneurs use to achieve their dreams and organize their thoughts. Just thinking of a number will not make you rich. The point of these techniques is so you can organize your thoughts and focus on one particular goal. Studies have been done on Olympic who use such intense visualizations that their muscles actually get sore like a skier pretending to ski down a mountain will have the same fatigue in their muscle of is they had just done the run in real life.
It’s not the first time I’ve heard highly successful people obsess about “a number.” Why? Because it works. Thinking about a number is akin to visualizing something into reality. Successful entrepreneurs talk about positive visualization all the time. They put up photos on a whiteboard of things they want to achieve; they visualize the success of a pitch presentation; or some spend 15 minutes a day envisioning how they want their lives and companies to look like. Athletes are famous for doing this too: Michael Jordan used to visualize his last shot before he even stepped on the court.
The key word is becoming obsessed with your target and when you write down a specific and measurable goal like “$2 million by 2020”. This causes your mind to think about the goal and eventually you become focused on it. The first step to successful visualization is to write down your goal and look at it at least once a day. Following the next two steps will help your mind to think about how to get to your goal. The more focused you get on one specific objective the less other things start to matter.
