Photographs give me the power to put
massive amounts of detailed information quickly and easily into my
mind. If my eye can see a photograph, my brain can remember it. When I
present a photograph to my brain, the picture goes straight into my
memory banks and remains forever.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, visualization is worth nine
hundred ninety nine. When no photograph is available, then a
well-crafted visualization can have nearly the same impact.
The power of visualization is immense. If I do a good job of
visualizing the path to my dreams, when I walk down the path, it will be
a trip through familiar territory. I will not stumble or be confused.
I will always know where I am since I have walked that path so many
times before in my mind. Itís like the pathway home.
When I visualize myself sailing on the ocean of my dreams, itís only a
matter of time before it happens.

Sometimes you look with your eyes, and at other times you look with your
Visualization is looking with your mind.
We know that what we look at expands into our lives. If we are smart,
we advertise our dreams to ourselves by displaying their pictures where
we can constantly see them. The more we look at them, the stronger the
dreams become, and the more influence they have on our destiny.
Sometimes, it's impossible to create and display a picture of your
dreams because an image doesn't exist. That's where visualization
comes in. It lets you see things in your mind's eye that you can't see
with your physical eyes. Looking with your mind's eye - visualization -
has nearly the same power as looking at an actual photograph. For all
practical purposes, your brain doesn't distinguish between an image that
you see with your eyes from one that you visualize in your mind.
I put a picture of Bora Bora on my wall more than ten years before I
actually arrived there on my yacht. But if I didn't have a picture, I
could have achieved the same result by visualizing Bora Bora in my
mind. It didn't matter whether I saw the image on my wall or visualized
it in my mind; the net results were the same. I had Bora Bora on my
mind, and I was willing to move heaven and earth to get there.
Visualization has great power for both good and evil. Unfortunately,
not everyone uses it to visualize good. They visualize bad health,
poverty, and depression, and like night follows day, problems expand
into their life.
Each day when I wake up, I visualize my future. In my mind, I see
myself doing dozens of things that move me in the direction of my
dreams. I visualize the path to my dreams so that when I walk down that
path, it will be a trip through familiar territory.
When you visualize your future, don't forget that God has a dream for
your life that is better than anything you can imagine. If you get in
agreement with God and visualize his master plan, your life will become
an awesome adventure.
