The Ideal Way to Succeed

Most people have experienced dreams that were completely indistinguishable from reality. Quite often people also wake up and feel disappointed because their dream came to an end. It is believed that dreams are communications from the subconscious mind that are telling respective dreamers what they really desire. While dreams turning into reality sounds a bit silly because we know that dreams and reality do not always coincide, there are many examples in real life where people have followed their dreams and converted them into reality. You will hear many people speak of a vision that they followed to success. That vision might as well be your dream.

Every one learns at least once that Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. What seldom gets mentioned is that it was his dream to do so. His dream or vision was so captivating that he could not let it go. It took him time and more perseverance than most other people but in the end he did it. A similar example is found in Colonel Harland Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken. All he had was a recipe and a desire to be a nation-wide franchise. At age of 60+, he too went through several dejections before he finally started getting accepted and now the KFC chain spans the globe and makes him millions every year.
There is nothing miraculous about the above two examples or the hundreds of others similar to them. The power to achieve your dreams is already within you and the only thing lacking is clarity of the process.
This is where the difference comes between a dream and a vision. A vision is more real than a dream. You can literally live your vision before you achieve it; it is inseparable from reality. It takes a lot of belief and faith in your dreams to turn it into a vision. When that happens you will notice that you and your life automatically begin to orient itself towards making that vision a reality and nothing can stop you. Every one wishes to have a home but very few people have the power of vision to see themselves living in that home before it is theirs.
Your future is pliable. Just spend 15-20 minutes every day with your eyes closed and envisioning it. Be clear and as precise as possible. If wish to live by the ocean then during those 15-20 minutes you must really feel as if you can smell the ocean and feel the breeze. You have to believe in this without any shadow of a doubt. Once the picture is rooted in your subconscious you will experience an inner drive to turn that vision into reality.
The clearer the vision of your desires and the greater the depth of your belief in that vision, the easier it will be for you to accomplish it

people will forget what you said ...
people will forget what you did ...
but people will never forget how you made them feel ...
