This formula, Prayerize + Picturize = Actualize, is another form of visualization that was preached by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale who, as one of the most influential clergymen of his time, has helped millions of people through his writings which include over 40 books.
Dr. Peale wrote, "To assure something worthwhile happening, first pray about it and test it according to God's will; then print a picture of it on your mind as happening, holding the picture firmly in consciousness...Work hard and intelligently, thus doing your part to achieve success in the matter. Practice believing and continue to hold the picturization firmly in your thoughts. Do this and you will be astonished at the strange ways in which the picture comes to pass."
He goes on to reference the bible verse, Mark 21:22, "And all things, whatsoever ye shall seek in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." He finishes up the discussion of this formula stating, "Optimistic visualization combined with prayer and faith will inevitably actualize achievement."
What impact does this message have on your quest to achieve better health or any other goal you have set? I believe the message is to...
1. Pray for the realization of that goal
2. Visualize your successful achievement of that goal in a positive, optimistic way
3. Work toward that goal
...and with faith and time your successful achievement of it is just about guaranteed.
Wishing you success in all aspects of life,
