It’s important to have long-term goals to focus on. You want to have a clear vision of the future you ultimately want for yourself. But sometimes it can be a little overwhelming to think that big. It may seem like too big a jump to make from where you are now.
One way to put yourself in the right frame of mind for making big things happen is to focus on smaller, more immediate segments of time. When you wake up, think positive thoughts about the morning cup of coffee that you will enjoy.
When you start to go to work, imagine a drive without traffic problems. As you’re driving, notice the nice weather and the beautiful buildings or trees that you pass by. Think about having good conversations with people at work and getting your tasks done on time.
These are all things that you know are possible, so it’s fairly easy to clearly visualize them. The positive thoughts will put you in a state that attract these things more readily. Days that start out good tend to continue to be that way all day. You’ll get the ball rolling in the right direction.
You’ll find that your more ambitious goals are much easier to visualize when you’re in this state of mind. When you feel positive about small things, you will be able to believe that much bigger things can happen for you.
Focus Your Attention on the Present. Don’t think about the past, because it’s gone and you can’t do anything about it. Additionally, don’t worry about the future, because it’s not here yet.
