Whenever I want to achieve something important to me, I collect pictures of things I love, words that inspire me, an empowering piece of music and put them all together into a “mind movie” or “mini movie” or “vision movie“.
To this day, every time I play the mini movie I’m posting below it picks me up and reminds me who I really am, what delightful pleasures I want to include in my life, where I intend to focus from now on and how good I choose to feel in this moment.
I understand the importance of
no matter what I’m doing.
What Makes YOU Feel Good?
Writing a song or a poem, making a quilt or mosaic, drawing a picture, meditating, walking on the beach, making love, painting a picture? These are all “tools” to help you feel good … and when you feel good, your dreams, visions and goals come even closer. Research show that only 4% of the population write down or record their goals. I suspect many people think they have to put time and effort into getting what they want, yet I find it more important to take the time to FEEL GOOD first, and then the best action to take next, is simply inspired.
I do more than just imagine what I want.
I like to utilize as many senses as I can!
So I Create A Vision Movie!
Creating my own Vision Movie’ makes me think about what I really want my life to be like. It’s always fun to make and most importantly, pleasurable to watch. Sometimes I use other “vision tools” too. I’ve done some decoupage on my guitar (which is a simple process of sticking pictures on to the surface and then sealing with a special glue found in craft stores) and I’ve also created several Vision Movies, montages or Slide Show Presentations using Windows LIVE Movie Maker.
I AM the creator,the star,
the producer, the director
and the movie maker of my life!
How Good Does It Feel?
When I play my guitar it makes me feel like the star in my pictures. When I watch my Vision Movies, they make me feel like I am part of the movie and give me a sense of euphoria – every time. As I keep these “vision tools” in view and interact with them on a daily basis, I notice my life changing rapidly to fit the vision. Of course I still need to take action to make my life the way I want it, but starting a new habit of playing guitar, taking daily walks on the beach and watching my special inspiring movies everyday, was a great place to begin. Which reminds me of some very wise words.
“Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
I Make It A Daily Habit!
For a long time, I was unaware of how powerful these “vision tools” could be in my life and I resisted making them … but not any more! Maybe it’s time for you to include a fun and positive habit in your daily tasks too.
NOTE: This vision movie was made in 2008 and I’ve since upgrade my movie editing program AND my video editing skills, but it never takes away from the euphoric feeling I get what I watch it – enjoy!
