Description

See things as you want them to be. Then act as if your vision is true.

See other people as basically good and kind and full of potential. See bad behavior as an expression of damaged pain that is crying out for help.

See the future you want. Go out into that future and look back at the steps you took to get where you are.

See yourself as a powerful and potent person. Look at that person and just step inside, feeling how they feel, seeing how they see. Then be how they are.

Inhabit your vision. Keep acting as if it is real. Convince yourself and you will convince others who will help you make your dreams come true.

Discussion

Belief is one of the most powerful forces in the world (just look at what political and religious ideas have led to). If you can manage your own beliefs you can achieve quite remarkable things.

Of course there are limits to the vision and a certain amount of common sense is needed. If you really believe you have super-powers, then you will likely get hurt. If you believe you can take whatever you want from others, then you will lose your friends. But this is very seldom the problem: people seldom want to believe bad or stupid things -- they more likely do not believe enough in themselves.
