Robert Collier, the great American writer of the early 20th century, advised his readers to:
"Visualize this thing you want. See it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin."
This is great advice but the reference to the blueprint makes the quote a bit misleading.
A blueprint is simply a sketch of the final structure. An outline, if you will, of what the final building will look like.
To make the visualization process successful you need more than a basic sketch of what you hope to achieve in your mind. You must make that picture look exactly like the final result.
Continuing with the building analogy, when you visualize this structure you must have more than a blueprint. You must be looking at the real building. Marveling at its red brick walls, large glass windows, and beautiful, decorative facade. It is imperative that you clearly see the vibrant colors of the landscaping around the building and feel the warmth of the sun as you touch the metal doorknob. You need to walk around the structure and listen to the birds chirping in the trees and the laughter of the children playing the park adjacent to the building.
Take a moment now to think about the goal in your life that you are visualizing. Is your visualization just a mental blueprint of the end goal you hope to achieve? What additional details will you add to that picture to make it infallibly real?
Adding these specifics is critical to speeding up the time it will take to attain that goal.
