神 爱 你,并 且 为 你 的 生 命 有 一 奇 妙 的 计 划

Steve Chandler ate lunch with Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1976 before Arnold became famous. He asked Arnold what he was going to do after retiring from body building. This is from Chandler’s book 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself. It is the second “way.”

“With a voice as calm as if he were telling me about some mundane travel plans he said, “I’m going to be the number-one box-office star in all of Hollywood.”

I tried not to show my shock and amusement at his plan. After all, his first attempt at movies didn’t promise much. And his Austrian accent and awkward, monstrous build didn’t suggest instant acceptance by movie audiences. I finally managed to match his calm demeanor and I asked him just how he planned to become Hollywood’s top star.

“It’s the same process I used in bodybuilding,” he explained. “What you do is create a vision of who you want to be, and then live into that picture as if it were already true.”

It sounded ridiculously simple. Too simple to mean anything. But I wrote it down. And I never forgot it.

I’ll never forget the moment when some entertainment TV show was saying that box office receipts from his second Terminator movie had made him the most popular box office draw in the world.”

Many studies have shown that if a person visualized success every day, whether it is success in school, relationships, career, sports, music, etc. it helps tremendously. If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a try. The important part is to feel good about achieving success when you visualize it. That is key.

    At Armchairzen.com we refer to this as envisioneering. (Engineering your vision).
    In it’s simplest form, it is a two-step process, as follows:

    1) Picture the you and the life you’ve imagined for yourself.

    2) Make it so.

    Be at peace,

    Paz

    I agree visualisation is a very powerful tool.
