AIA#82 Visualisation, Lamborghinis, and other nonsense


Drawing by Me

I was going to title this “How to get a new Lamborghini”.

I’m a Porsche man myself but I wanted a more click bait kind of title.

The Secret

I watched the movie The Secret based on the book by the same name.  The book describes “a secret” technique or visualisation to help you get anything you want.  Do you want a new pearl necklace?… then just visualise it!

The book doesn’t mention that you have to take some other action in order to get what you want.

I know its ridiculous, to the point of being laughable.

But that’s what our culture loves, the easy road. We’re all looking for the life hack to get what we want.  It’s a tough road and there are no short cuts.

You have to show up to work. You have to make some phones calls or send some emails.  You have to put yourself out there.  You can’t just sit at home in your pyjamas and visualise all day long.

I do think there is something to visualisation, writing, and action when used together.

I write down my future goals everyday. Really, what have I got to lose a few minutes of time in the morning?  It helps give me something to shoot for.  Will  it help me achieve my goals?  I’m not sure.  However, if someone asks me what I want to achieve I have some idea of what it is.

Writing helps me organise my thoughts and ideas.

After writing, I do some quick visualisation.  I only spend a few minutes doing it.  I see myself achieving my goals and make an efforts to get into the feeling of the achievement.
