Can you use purposeful daydream to shape your own future? Why not try? Here is how those who believe in creative daydreaming recommend going about it. Choose a time when you can be alone and undisturbed. Close your eyes, to permit your imagination to soar more freely. Many people find that they get best results by pretending that they are sitting before a large screen. They project the desired image of themselves onto that screen.
Now picture yourself—as vividly as possible—the way you want to be. Remember to picture your desired goals as if you had already attained them. Go over all the details of this picture. See them clearly and sharply. Impress them strongly on your memory. The resulting memory traces will supposedly start affecting your everyday life. They will help lead you to the attainment of your goals.
Of course daydream is no substitute far hard work.Daydream alone can’t turn you into your heart’s desire. But in combination with more usual methods of self-development, it might make a critical difference. It could be the difference between becoming merely good at something and becoming a champion.
