The power of visualization is a popular subject these days. From its health benefits to its power in helping us create the life we want, we’re increasingly aware of it. Some have had great success with these practices.

There are even movies about how visualizing the life you want will lead to its manifestation. There is certainly value in developing clarity as to what it is we want. But by itself is not enough. Without some form of action, the visualization remains just a picture in our minds.

Don’t get me wrong. There is certainly great value in having a clear sense of what it is you want and what it looks like. And there is value in having a plan as to how to manifest it. But without more, nothing is going to happen.

What is it that you can do now to move toward its implementation of your plan?

I remember when I embarked upon my new path as a life coach. I sent out a letter to everyone I knew thinking that the response would be so great that I wouldn’t have time to respond to all of the inquiries. There were not any responses until I took action by following up with phone calls. My taking action by making those initial calls were instrumental in my getting to where I am now.

Even if you feel that you are not ready, you can still take a small step now. Don’t wait for the perfect time to begin. Begin now. Take the step. Even if you’re not fully prepared, there’s something you can
do right now.

The action step sends a message to the universe that you are committed. Action accomplishes more than just the immediate results it
creates. Action takes you much further than just the belief you can do it. It’s great to have a belief in your abilities; but go beyond your intentions and make it come alive. Let the universe know you are committed.
