Do you day dream?
I was and still am a great day dreamer. I have dreamed about so many things and so many ways my life could be perfect. Of course a couple of months ago I just spent my time dreaming all day and living in my own wonderland. But then I met this beautiful lady Marie Forleo (check her website http://www.marieforleo.com) who changed my entire perspective of looking at life.
Yes ! you need to have a look at your past, how else will you learn from your mistakes.
Yes ! you need to visualize your future, how else are you going to be motivated to achieve your goals.
Marie Forleo explains the concept beautifully in the video below
So stop right there. Stop dreaming about your future and stay in the present.
And how to plan for your future you ask? Schedule it.
I personally have two DAY DREAMING sessions everyday.
The first session is in the morning after my workouts I spend 10 minutes visualizing about how I want my future to be. I dream about my beautiful house with pretty flower garden, my closet full of branded clothes, my happy smiling family and the gala vacation I have with them on a regular basis, my successful business etc…
Then I open my journal and write down what I need to do today in order to move a step closer to my dream future. The benefit of this exercise is since I have already dreamed about my future I am not tempted to day dream during the day when I have more important things to do. And If I come across some new idea which I need to add to my dream I save it for my next dreaming session
My second DAY DREAMING session is at night just before I go to bed. I write down my accomplishments of the day feeling pretty happy about the great things I did that day and dream about an awesome future till I fall asleep.
Remember it’s the journey towards success that’s more important than the actual success itself, and these little things do matter a lot because they make you a better person. 🙂
