The Story Of A Boy Who "Visualized" An Empire
This is an amazing but true story about the
power of visualization.
Many, many years ago, a young boy happened to
walk by a newspaper publishing office. He
stopped and peered through the window and was
amazed at the activity he saw in the office.
The activity that surrounded one man in the
office especially interested him. It was the
chief editor of the newspaper. The young boy
watched in amazement as the editor barked
orders to the employees around him.
The boy sensed the power that the chief editor
possessed - how the entire newspaper
enterprise seemed to revolve around him. The
young boy began to visualize himself as that
Every day he pictured himself as the editor of
that newspaper; he dreamed about it at night.
He created a detailed vision in his mind of
himself in that editor's chair, it was almost
like he had created a vivid color movie that
he played back in his mind every night.
This is the most important part of this story.
The movie that this young boy played in his
mind every night slowly began to manifiest
itself in the real world. The young boy got a
part time job at newspaper publishing company.
The part time job turned into a full time job
as an editor.
Who was that young boy?
His name was Roger Ferger.
Not only did he become the editor of a large
newspaper, he eventually went on to become the
owner and publisher of the Cincinnati
Inquirer, one of thelargest newspaper empires
in the country today.
Are you visualizing who you want to become?
What is Positive Visualization?
It can be summarized in this one statement:
"We were created in the image of our creator,
therefore we are creators." Think about this
statement very carefully. Everything that you,
or anyone else has done since the beginning of
time, began first with a thought.
If you look back at the careers of successful
people, you will find that almost every one of
them first visualized who they wanted to
be...long before they actually achieved
Stop everything you are doing right now and
think about what you want to accomplish in
your life in this new year. Maybe you want a
new career, or you want to be fit and trim and
in great shape, perhaps you want to start a
new business, or buy that dream house you
always wanted.
Make a list on paper right now of the things
you want to accomplish this year. Make it a
habit to read this list to yourself every day
and visualize that you have already reached
the goals in your list. Create a detailed
movie in your mind of the new you that you
want to see in 2010. Be very detailed, if your
goal was a new home, picture yourself walking
into that new home, picture every detail, the
color, the style of home, imagine the kitchen
in great detail.
If your goal was a new career or promotion,
picture yourself in that new office, believe
it with all your heart as if it were already
true. No matter what your goals are, visualize
them every day.You will find that one day,
your visualization will become a reality!
Don't ask me how it works...just know that it
works. Believe me...I have experienced it in
my own life.
