Draw it Out – Happiness Strategy

Do you have a few goals that you just haven’t been able to get to? Perhaps its because you haven’t been able to visualize them properly. You need to be able to see them to achieve them.

Here is your daily happiness exercise:

Get out a pen and paper or even better markers and crayons and paper.

Draw out a scene of you actually having accomplished your goal.

This does not need to be a work of art! Stick figures are fine.

Just something to get your imagination in line with your aspiration.

Put as much detail as you can into it, until you can actually see what you are intending to manifest into your life.

Like a challenge? Create several pictures. One where you are now. One what you need to do to get what you want. And finally the third picture where you actually have it. This creates a little cartoon. Flip the pages from your beginning picture to the one where you have what you want.
