Create a powerful vision of yourself

Self-belief doesn’t come just by way of trying to convince yourself that you are something else or you have something that you don’t. The only thing you accomplish is creating a sense of false belief. True self-belief actually comes from developing the vision that you are your ideal self, you have the things you desire and you live your dream life.

Visualization is natural but it can also be a learned skill for those of us who seem to have forgotten how it’s done. Make a habit of sitting down, closing your eyes, and watching yourself behaving and having what you want most. You have to engage all your senses and really encase yourself in the “imaginary” world. This imaginary world is your future.

The 1st video below is John Assaraf with a brief explanation on how to do creative visualization. The 2nd video is a 10 minute guided meditation or visualization exercise. If you are a beginner, guided visualizations may work best for you. Please experiment and experience your future in the present. Do this often and recreate your world!

A Random Act of Kindness Restores Man’s Faith in Humanity

Victoria Taxi driver BJ Roberts was doing his usual routines driving around the city picking up clients and taking them to their next location, however this was a special day that he will remember for the rest of his life.  He came across a young man in his 20′s who needed a ride from  Nanaimo to Victoria General Hospital   and  informed him the cab fare would be around $225 and the client agreed and said his mom would pay him when they arrived at the hospital

When they arrived at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, the passenger went inside the hospital to supposedly get the money, but he never came back out.  “I said, ‘Oh my gosh, I just got scammed out of $225.’ ”  however when he was in the hospital looking for the passenger a man in his 50′s approached Roberts and pushed a wad of bills into his hand.

“And this guy said, ‘Excuse me, sir. Here, please take this, there’s $225 here, I want you to have it.’ I said, ‘Are you kidding me?’ ” Roberts recalled.“ “He said, ‘Listen, I’ve driven cabs for some years when I was younger, I got shafted a few times, and I didn’t like it. It’s not fair to you. I can afford it, please take it.’  He thanked the the kind stranger who didn’t even want to give him his name and walked away with a restored faith in humanity.

It leaves me feeling very good,” Roberts said, adding: “I will never make that mistake again.”
