In your mind, relive successful events, such as getting good grades at school, receiving a compliment from someone whose opinion you value, finding a good job or getting a promotion. You may choose any event from the past.
2. While reliving the event in your imagination, visualize it as clearly as possible, and let the positive and happy feelings, which you experienced at that time, become alive again.
3. When these feelings are aroused, it is time to think about your current goal. Live and experience these feelings and emotions in your imagination, and associate them with your present goal. This action will inject energy into your thoughts and make them powerful.
When you fill your thoughts with emotional power, your thoughts become strong, and can affect the surrounding environment. Sometimes, other people perceive these thoughts, and for some reason or another, they might help you bring them into reality.
