3 Thoughts from me, 2 Quotes from others, and 1 Question to help you reflect on your work-life balance and well-being habits this week.


3 Thoughts from Me


Take a moment to look all around you. What do you see? I’m sure it depends on the environment you’re in. At work, you might see apparatus, cars, computers, desks, chairs, etc. If you’re at home, you might see furniture, tables, TVs, and chairs.

It’s interesting to recognize that everything created starts with someone visualizing their thoughts and putting them into action. Whether that’s an object in our physical environment or a behavior. Every design of every human creation has visualization preceding production.


Most high-achievers practice visualization in all areas of life. Whether we wish to achieve greater success with our physical fitness, dietary habits, thought management, spirituality, relationships, or careers, we might benefit if we begin by visualizing exactly what we want.

Visualizing is like being the creator and director of a movie I play in my mind. When my mental video is ready to be released, I close my eyes and watch it play. I take a few minutes to watch my newly desired behaviors take shape.


Not only do I watch, but I take time to observe the feelings I’m getting from watching the movie. Visualizing the movie and feeling my feelings from the experience leaves a lasting impression.

As 2023 comes to a close in a few weeks, it’s the perfect time to make your blockbuster movie. I encourage you to teach visualization to your family and friends and join me in visualizing our best year in 2024!

1 Question for You

If you are planning to have one of your best years ever in 2024, what would your mental movie title be?
