Ideal scenes are better than New Year’s resolutions because they act as self-fulfilling prophecies when written correctly.
An ideal scene is a carefully written description of your future activity and it must be written as though it is already happening. It is not a wish list. It is a description of events that you are willing to make happen.
When written correctly, they may cause changes in your life in a matter of days. I have found that the speed with which an ideal scene manifests itself depends to a great extent on how many others you have considered in describing your ideal scene.
Very Important Notes:
1. Achievement of your ideal scene depends on the intentions of those involved. If your ideal scene promotes the survival of a group or an organization, you are much more likely to get agreement in making it happen.
2. These ideal scenes align intentions, yours and others, and actually create a future. Start writing about those things you are certain you can make happen. For example:
If you are desperate to find a new job, you write, "I network constantly until I find a new job."
Note that the activity is one that you can make happen. It does not depend on luck or on secret knowledge.
If you don’t have clue about networking, you download my book and read it. Then, you would write your ideal scene this way:
"I figure out how to network effectively by reading Danger Quicksand – Have A Nice Day and I network until I find the right job for me.
I have written more about this before. See my earlier post for complete details.
Some random items from my personal ideal scene may give you some ideas of your own. As you can see, some of these activities require resources and information I do not have yet, so the description includes acquiring the resources.
I figure out how to build a series of interlinked websites that attract visitors and produce significant advertising income.
Our use of credit cards is limited to a portable substitute for cash on a monthly basis. All cards are paid off every month.
We work out individual exercise and diet programs to keep us fit and healthy.
I work out a way to publish more books in 2007 and make them creative and financial successes.
We find a way to construct a carport, or carports, to protect all of our vehicles from winter weather.
I find a way to obtain a lawn tractor.
Wishing you all a happy and prosperous New Year…
