Here is a little visualization project for those that want to acquire more.
The Lemon Test.
Close your eyes and relax.
See on your movie screen located above your eyes between your eye brows your kitchen counter.
On your counter picture a lemon next to a knife.
Notice the distinct shape of the lemon. (a football with nipple on each point.)
Pick up the lemon. Notice it’s waxy texture. Notice the skin like dimples it has.
Now pick up the knife and cut the lemon in half and place the other half on the counter. A lemon has a distinct smell to it. When you catch that smell you know it’s a lemon.
Cut that half into a quarter and place the other quarter of the lemon on the counter.
With the quarter of lemon you are holding, take a bite, a big bite.
Open your eyes and notice the changes you have in your mouth. If you saw clearly, felt clearly and your smell was precise. There should be a bit more saliva in your mouth. The reason for this extra saliva is that a lemon has citric acid. As a result, the body shoots out saliva to dilute the citric acid so you can consume the lemon.
You didn’t bite into a real lemon, yet your body reacted as such.
Now see yourself hitting your target, see yourself getting a good grade on your test, see yourself accomplishing a sell, see yourself accomplishing _______. (fill in the blank) If you have put in the time and it is within your grasp or just outside your reach. See it happen.
Also, take the time and truly reflect on how many times you actually thought you couldn’t do something. Realize why you were correct with that assessment.
“he who thinks he can and he who thinks he can’t, in both cases he is right.”
Success must precede success.
I hope I am not stepping my bounds with all this. I share because it is important. For me, far more than some/most of the things we place in front of it.
