Draw Your Dreams
Research shows that out of ten people who set goals, nine never actually make any real changes. So how do you become the one that does? Business consultant Patti Dobrowolski says achieving goals is all about tricking the brain.
Her suggested method for change is simple: see it, believe it and then your brain will help you execute it.
It sounds so simple that most people, I bet, won’t actually do it.
Visualize Your Future State
Draw yourself in your current state and then in your desired new reality, where you want to be. Drawing a visual has a powerful effect on the brain. Fill in the picture with tons of color; channel your inner kid and draw the most daring picture you can. Soak in the picture of your future. Dobrowolski says the brain emits serotonin when you draw, leaving you feeling creative and happy.
Become the 1 out of 10 to Change
Your brain will actually guess what steps it needs to take to get you from your current state to your desired reality. Then act on it, do one small thing each day that will get you closer to your dream. Draw out your dream and become that one person out of ten to make a change.
