Visualise

If you don't know where you are going, then how will you get there?

This is what I do:
  • make pictures in my mind 
  • see the destination
  • imagine my arrival 
  • dream in perfect detail 
  • make myself a road map 
  • study it every day until I know the way and the destination by heart 
  • see myself the way I want to be when I arrive 
  • see myself arriving.

Merry Christmas Peggy! I did something similar for Paris awhile back, I even google earthed the city streets!

@Debra - Wishing you holiday joy too. I took the wave sculpture at this years Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi Beach, Sydney, it is a powerful sculpture isn't it.

@Christine - Hope your Christmas and New Year bring you much happiness and adventure. What a great tool Google Earth is, helping us navigate our destinations. I will be returning to Paris in August 2016, I do love that city.

@Mike - What lovely words you write my friend. May 2016 bring you and your loved one good health, happiness and the warmth of love.

I suspect your steps are applied to more than just physical destinations. Traveling is a great analogy for life. One travel analogy I figured out was this - While looking in the rearview mirror is essential for some maneuvers, your forward progress will fail if you only use the rearview mirror.
All the best to you for great progress in 2016.

@Bill - Thanks for your insights. Travel can be a metaphor which involves the acquisition of knowledge and experience - a voyage of the self.
Thanks for your thoughts for great progress in 2016, I will visualise that!!

Great wisdom. I have to do a lot of that next year which is nearly there. Wish you an amazing fantastic 2016 dear Peggy :) xxx

@Marja - The start of a new year always feels like a chance to try new things and maybe even “start over”. It's a perfect opportunity to reflect on what is and what isn't working in our lives.
I treasure our friendship my friend and I wish you all the happiness in the world for 2016. xxxx
