When we’re working toward our dreams and imagining the road ahead, oftentimes we think of it as a steep incline, perhaps even a sheer rock face, that we have to scale in order to reach our dreams. We automatically assume we have no choice but to traverse this treacherous path in order to reach our dreams that are sparkling and gleaming in the sunlight at the top of the mountain.
Why does our journey have to be a struggle? Why does it have to be perilous, terrifying us at nearly every turn?
How about if we turn that image on its head?
Why not imagine ourselves basking in the warm sun at the top of a mountain enjoying the fantastic views as our dreams are steadily gliding toward us on a gondola?
That isn’t to say that we don’t have work to do: We hold a positive and expectant mindset, knowing the gondola with our dreams on board is on its way; we keep our eye on the steady progress of the gondola and search for our dreams inside; as we’re waiting, we prepare ourselves for our dreams—including preparing for the celebration when they arrive! When the gondola reaches the mountaintop, we run with excitement, enthusiasm, and open arms to greet and welcome our dreams into our lives.
Your homework today is to revamp the vision you have of your journey to your dreams. Get rid of the arduous path that you’re picturing. Instead, visualize joy, enthusiasm, a wide and straight avenue, people cheering you on, and bright sunlight bathing the scene.
Then take the next step!
You can do it! Go you!
I’m so proud of your progress; you’re awesome!
