See Yourself As The Person You Want To Be

“When your image improves, your performance improves.”  ~Zig Ziglar

One of the greatest gifts of this life experience is that we can reinvent ourselves whenever we want to.  Let me caution you by saying this is not an overnight process.  It starts by getting a clear vision of the person you want to be and then with continued focus it becomes a reality over time.

All things that come to be or manifest in our lives begins as a thought.  So the first step in this process is to see yourself as the person you want to be.  Envision yourself living the lifestyle you desire and feel the wonderful feelings associated with the picture in your mind.  It’s those feelings that will set things in motion.

As the change is occurring you’ll get little nudges to do things you haven’t done before.  You may be thinking about getting a new hairstyle or you may be drawn to an outfit that’s not your typical style.  Go with these nudges!  It’s part of the process!  It’s normal to feel some resistance as well during this process.  We’re creatures of habit and our egos may try to resist the changes that are occurring.  Work past any resistance by keeping your focus on the person you want to be.

  • Use a journal to describe the person you want to be and to record the changes that are happening, including any resistance you feel.
  • Create a visionboard depicting the person you will be and lifestyle you’ll have.  Know that person does exist, you just haven’t met them yet!
  • Daydream about the new you and feel as if you are already that person living the life you dream of.

We are in complete control of the person we are.  See yourself as the person you want to be and keep your eye on that vision.  Follow your intuition where it leads you.  You WILL become that person!

Wishing you much happiness and success.

  1. I have a vision board recently i’ve seen things from it coming into my life. At first it took my breath away. I personally need to focus more on becoming what i truly want to become.

    • It’s amazing what happens when you put your focus and energy on the things you want to create in your life.

      Keep me posted on how things are going.

  2. I thought of one of my favorite movie quotes when I read this post:

    “Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.” –Vanilla Sky

    • I hadn’t heard that one before. Thanks for sharing it. I love it!

  3. So true! As the old saying goes ” We are the masters of our own destiny”
    Strive for more. Reinvent yourself and make things happens for you, not to you.

  6. I really enjoyed this post and am reading it as I’m reinventing myself in one area of my life. GREAT timing!

    I love what you wrote here: “Envision yourself living the lifestyle you desire and feel the wonderful feelings associated with the picture in your mind. It’s those feelings that will set things in motion.” I’ve written about that before, too – how powerful feeling is in the manifestation equation.

    Thanks for writing this, and be well & joyful!
