If your goal in life to be happy & successful, then there is a fair chance that you have a mental picture in your mind about what exactly Happy and Successful are? No . I thought not Ė And thatís where so many people struggle.
For most people, they want financial security, health, happy family etc but they have not defined what each of these things mean for them. Ie What does finacial security look like? What does a happy family look like?
In your business you will be on the receiving end of many business tips. One of the most powerful, long term tips that you can exercise is to follow a process called IVVM. IVVM stands for Idealization, Visualization, Verbalization and Materialization.
Even in a tough economy where everyone is suffering from myopia, it is important for every business owner, be they offline or online or working in a huge corporation or working from their garage to dram, visualize and make things happen. The seeds of recovery will be sown among the business owners and they will accelerate any recovery.
I met a client a few years ago in March 2004. I asked her what she would like to be doing in an ideal world. She wanted a sea front apartment on the Mediterranean. She wanted to be able to live and work there for at least 6months per year. She had a crystal clear picture of the apartment and the life she wanted to lead.
As I worked with her over the next 5 years, I saw this dream materialise. She never lost focus and worked tirelessly to make it a reality.
Clarity of though leads to materialization faster. In The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, he outlines the process and the simplicity of the process.
Very few people perform this exercise and itís a shame. You need to start this exercise now, this minute, especially if you want to achieve success in your business.
Back again to the business that we work with. The ones that have clear goals documented, supported by images and pictures of their ideal life start to make things happen each and every day.
Are you ready to take the step toward discipline in your life?
Are you ready to fulfil your desires though discipline and focus?
What would hold you back from the process of mapping out your goals and making them a reality?
Will you have what it takes to apply the IVVM process?
