Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve

Dream it see it do itDR B’S HEALTH HACKS

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”- Napoleon Hill

Here’s another quote,

“You can’t just visualize, and then go eat a sandwich. It takes work.”- Jim Carey

A few years ago I had a client tell me that she couldn’t see herself feeling good again. She had so many health issues for so long and that it was all she could do to get out of bed and go to work.

The part that stood out was that she said she couldn’t SEE herself in the shape she wanted.

I brought this up to my coach/mentor at the time, and he gave me an exercise to do with her. Next time I saw her, during our exam, I was to have her visualize herself doing all the things she wanted to do, going to the gym pain-free, looking at her body in the mirror and SEEING the body she wanted, seeing herself picking up her child without severe pain.

When I suggested this to her, she balked at first, and I can remember feeling slightly uncomfortable recommending this because it was new to me too, kind of “out there” and “airy fairy”… but she played along.

The next time I saw her, she wasn’t completely cured of course, but she was in a better mood and more optimistic about her future. What really surprised me was that she brought in a VISION BOARD with her. A rolled up piece of thick paper with pictures on it that she had done over the weekend. Photos of the gym, pictures of girls in bikinis at the beach, smiles, children and a bunch of cool holiday destinations.

What I learned from this experience was that creating a vision board is a great hack to keep yourself focused on your goals over a more extended period of time.

If you are thinking it’s too “airy fairy” for you, some of the most successful people in the world do this every single year!
