#2 Visualization - Daydreaming with a purpose

A little positivity and knowledge goes a long way so I'll try to keep FEM Energy posts as refreshing, as this ...

So your thinking I can find positive affirmation quotes, diet plans and fitness regimes all over social networking sites, very true.. but a diva appreciates every form of positivity it is fuel for her thought and sparks her creativity. She's more likely to learn something new because she always makes time for two things 1.self reflection and 2.self appreciation which helps her reach her goals. Focusing on the former self reflection, today's post will be on visualization.

The simplest way to stay 100% focused on your goal is to visualize it in your minds eye first, it takes a lot of focus to find out what you really want, the more detail you go into the better. I heard this somewhere and it always stuck, don't get bitter, get better. Take note that mentally visualizing your goals is the key to you reaching them, and it's no secret. Many wealthy and successful people openly talk about the power of visualization.


1. The act or instance of visualizing.
2. (Psychology) a technique involving focusing on positive mental images in order to achieve a particular goal.

Don't just take my word for it

Wallace wattles wrote a book way back in 1910 on the power of the mind and visualization called The science of getting rich. It's now one of the most studied success books to date and well worth a read, click for the link here. Notice the cover links to the more recent book the secret if your familiar with the laws of attraction. He's one of the first of many writers on this subject yet his techniques still apply today. Wattle created methods such as manifestation and influenced other well known authors and thinkers like napoleon hill.

Celebrities who use visualization

Natan Sharansky, a computer specialist who spent 9 years in prison in the USSR after being accused of spying for the US had loads of experience with visualization. While in solitary confinement, he played himself at mental chess, saying: “I might as well use the opportunity to become the world champion!” What do you know, in 1996, Sharansky beat world champion chess player Garry Kasparov.

Even Beyonce's down with the power of visualization, who stated in an interview with Vogue that she used visualization techniques along with breathing methods to push past the pain during baby blue's birth.“And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.” Yeah you do sound kinda crazy B, but the imaginations powerful stuff, there are many cases where people use mind over matter techniques to overcome pain.

 Powerful quotes

Oprah Winfrey shared her philosophy on success with TV host Larry King, “You really can change your own reality based on the way that you think.”

“Life is a menu so remember whoever and whatever you order for your life is what’s gonna be delivered to your table.” Tyrese Gibson

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." Eleanor Roosevelt

“It’s all about the work, … Nothing is going to fall into your lap. If you want to be a lawyer, see yourself as a lawyer, go to the library and start learning the law. If you want to be a rapper, start rapping and get out there. Live your life as if you already are where you want to be.” Russell Simmons

How to put the practice in motion

Picture what you want in your mind, the more detailed the picture the more focused you will be when noticing opportunity's that will help you obtain your goal. To turn yourself into a magnet spend at least 5-10 minutes a day on your image and you will start to notice changes, be patient Rome wasn't built in day but the more you practice the quicker you'll find ways to achieve your goal.
