Draw Your Future
Athletes use visual goal setting to fuel motivation and higher performance and you can too! Your imagination is the secret behind creating the changes you want in your life today. It is your innate superpower!
In this world of distraction, a picture of your future will focus your attention. Your brain prioritizes goal-relevant information, so visual goal setting helps you target your energy and resources towards the right things, ensuring you will get the most out of any effort. A drawing is the simplest way to keep you focused on the right things.
Visual Goal Setting is For Anyone - You Don't Need to Know How to Draw
Research shows that participants who visualize a task before completing it perform better than those who have actually done a practice run. Imagine, draw an image or write words that describe yourself in an experience you desire, will activate the same areas in the brain as when you are actually doing it! What?! Yes! Rewire your brain to shift old behaviors and come into alignment with that which you desire.
How many times have you set goals, then a few weeks later realized you had forgotten about them altogether? Or maybe you’ve set some goals and when they didn’t happen fast enough, got demotivated and fell down the slippery slope of “I can’t make it happen!”
Most of us lose momentum in hitting our goals, because we haven’t learned how to lock in small successes to maintain motivation. Visual goal setting, combined with immediate action hits an internal success button of success. That sends high powered chemistry into your body so you WANT to keep going!
You can learn a powerful proven process to bypass your old ways of thinking and step into the new reality you desire.
“I have brought many dreams to fruition using envisioning. But, drawing took that dream tool to a whole new level and I feel like my world and I have changed since I did it. I came home and in pencil, sketched the life I’m living now and where I will be. The confirmation came immediately with one of the things I wanted happening the next day!”

“The day you drew my future was a defining moment in my life. It gave me a way to see myself in my future life and the 3 bold steps to get there. I left the firm I was working for a few months later. I knew I could keep drawing new pictures as I progressed away from my old life and toward my new one.”
