Sounds a bit weird, I know, but spend time imagining yourself doing the thing or having the thing that you have determined to equal success. If it is having a wonderful family, you imagine that – the peaceful home environment, the well-adjusted children, and the confident and assured parent that you are. If success for you is running a large organisation, see yourself in your office (or favourite beach), your staff members working hard and happily on their tasks, with happy customers and clients calling you about how they enjoy your service immensely.
By spending time each week seeing in your mind yourself reaching the success you want, you are mentally preparing yourself for that event. In doing so, your body reacts to it in the only way it can it starts to act out what the mind wants. It will start to find ways that it can achieve this vision in your mind, because the body and mind are two sides of the same coin. What one wants, the other has to want as well.
So, even if you don't believe in any of that mind-body 'stuff', it is fun seeing yourself doing what you so desperately want to do (or be, or have), and will help to motivate you to achieve your goals.
