The Story Of A Boy Who "Visualized" An EmpireThis 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 editor.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 success.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.
