In primary school, I was taught to how to draw stick pictures and put emotions on them. If you know how to do this then you have all the knowledge required to draw your life.
Television advertisements, make use or take advantage of our ability to think of colorful possibilities. Whenever we see soap advertisement where the model has amazingly soft skin we are tempted to want such kind of a skin and if the way to it is using that particular soap, then we get it.
Every living thing has been created with full ability to survive all kinds of situations. For that reason, we have sweat for hot, goose pimples for cold. Whenever you feel hot, you either take off your coat, fan yourself, get a cold drink. The same goes to drawing our lives. The left side of your brain talks you out of any edgy situation. The right side however is the creative side with which comes all the amazing possibilities. This side makes you happy, this is because, dopamine,serotonin , oxytocin and endorphins are released when you have positive imaginations.These hormones push you to act upon your imagination too.
So let’s get to it
Since we will be drawing, get a paper and pen or pencil. Draw a picture of yourself right now. Add details like your relationships, body and work status. I am going to use macho as an example. Macho is a college graduate; however macho wants to take full advantage of his gifts. macho is in a relationship with Ashley. he is a clerk at a local factory. the salary he gets isnt enough.He does more work than he earns. In one phrase he isn’t where he wants to be. Let us try to put that on paper.
A desired new reality
let us create the best life scenario for macho. He has amazing connections; he has made us of his gifts. not a must as a source of income but also making others’ lives better. He is bursting with joy, he is happy and most of all he loves his life. This is the best I could come up with.
Like every starting point and destination, macho needs a road. now imagining that you are macho, close your eyes and picture the bold steps that macho will have to do to get to his desired new reality. I came up with these
Putting them together
Your left hand side of the brain will try to talk you out of this. Because of this, you have to draw the most compelling picture. this will convince you.
Just like that you can draw your own. Set it as your wallpaper or stick it on your wall, put it in your planner every day before you set out, look at it and act on it. sooner or later you are going to realize that you are closer to your desired new reality than ever.
