A POWERFUL STORY ABOUT FOCUSING ON FUTURE ACHEIVEMENTS.
With your goal and growth plan in hand for 2021 your next step is to visualize the work you have to do as well as the success you will achieve during 2021.
Just like in sports when, for example, a field goal kicker visualizes how the ball is going to travel to score those 3 points, in business we have to continuously visualize the action items we have to take and the success we are going to achieve.
The following story made an impact on me; it showed me the power of visualization under the most extreme circumstances.
“A man by the name of Viktor Frankl owes his long life to his ability to project himself. He passed away at the age of 92. He was a renowned Viennese psychiatrist before the Nazis threw him into a concentration camp. Speaking at a conference a number of years ago he said: “There’s one reason why I’m here today. What kept me alive in a situation where others had given up hope and died was the dream that someday I’d be here telling you how I survived the concentration camps. I’ve never been here before. I’ve never seen any of you before. I’ve never given this speech before. But in my dreams I’ve stood before you in this room and said these words a thousand times.”
Nobody ever said that success was going to come without hardship if you visualize. Perseverance is still required. The secret is to keep your vision, not on where you are today, but where you want to be by the end of next year.
