NOW, YOU’VE HEARD OF the word “visualizing”. You have to learn to visualize things. And when you visualize something, this is the thing that’s going to come in your life, if the visualization is strong enough. Now we’re always visualizing things in our life, but the tendency is to visualize negative situations. Now the reason that we’re visualizing negative situations in our life is because, let’s not kid ourselves, we’re living in a negative world.
So if I say, “Joe, how are you feeling today?” And he says, “Good, fine.” And I ask him the next day how he feels, and he says, “I feel terrible. I’ve got a pain in my stomach and I ache all over.” And he goes into a…you’d think he was an actor. He can describe a negative situation in his body so wonderfully. But when he feels good, he just says, “Fine.” How come people, when they feel fine, they don’t say, “I feel great; I feel wonderful; I feel so great that I expect all the wonderful things in the world to happen to me today!”?
In other words, have a little feeling when you talk about the good things in life. I say, “How are you doing in business?” You say, “Fine.” Now if he has a bad day, he says when I ask him about his day, “Lousy, let me tell you this is a…I’m just having a terrible time. Did you read that article the other day? It took me several hours to find it; it was on the back page down at the bottom in fine print, but I located it.”
People love negative things. They seem to vibrate with them. For some strange reason, they don’t want things that are negative in their life, but they keep insisting on talking about them. And they can paint the most beautiful picture of lost and lack.
I say by the way, “Internal…” and everybody immediately starts shaking…”combustion.” A guy says, “You know what I thought you were going to say?” And he starts creating pictures and he says, by the way, I wonder about last year, what I did with that…I wonder if they’ll find that…and immediately he says, I can see the guy coming in the door now…I wonder when he’ll be here…I wonder what he’ll look like… and he gets beautiful pictures, and the next thing you know, the guy is knocking on his door. He created the picture and he brought it into his life.
