Of all the success principles that have been taught, none has been more misunderstood or argued about than visualization.

The current state of the self-help field teaches that all you do is visualize every morning and night and your goal (visualization) will attract itself to you. Sorry, but that just isn’t the case.

Visualization is a tool, an important one of course, but you have to do more than just visualize. Sorry people, but the success game is a little bit more complicated than that. The universe requires you to earn your way, to prove that you have the muster and gumption to deserve your goal or goals.

What you sow, you reap. In other words, you must earn your way by your efforts. Visualization alone will not do it. We live in an action-oriented world and while visualization serves an important purpose, your visions and dreams must be balanced with purposeful pursuit of those goals.

The true importance of visualizing is to keep you focused on your target. Visualization should be done during every waking moment, not just at certain times. By that I mean you must keep your vision in your mind as you go about your day. You don’t have to close your eyes, listen to music and all that stuff. Just have it there in the back of your mind to bring to recall at a moments notice.

Focused action must be accompanied with all visualization. Otherwise all you have is a daydream. It doesn’t have to be a giant step, as long as it’s some type of action that will start you on the way to acquiring what you’re visualizing.

The individuals who are teaching that all you do is visualize are doing a complete disservice to those pursuing the path to personal excellence. If it were that easy, everyone would accomplish their wildest dreams. But as we all know, that just ain’t so.

Visualization and action work synergistically to create the life of your dreams. Visualization alone is not enough. Combine it with small action steps toward your vision and life will give you what you ask of it.
