Creating the Gap to Close

How do you close the gap between the reality you are living in now and the life you want for yourself in the future? The life you are living right now is not the one you want to live. You could do and be so much more, and you know this. However, somehow things just never seem to change much for you.

Does this sound familiar? Are you, or someone you are close to, trapped in a life you don’t want, feeling stuck and unable to move? Here is a suggestion for moving forward. Why don’t you try imagining the future you want for yourself? Imagine it so vividly and specifically that you can actually see it. Then, take it even further. Hear it, taste it, feel it, walk around in it!  Make it like a movie, starring you.

If you’ve done a good job imagining this future, when you come back to reality, you will be aware of a gap between where you are now and where you want to be. You may feel a bit uncomfortable, but this is good! You see, it is this gap that releases your energy and creativity. Did you know that gas-powered automobiles only move because they have a gap in the spark plug? There has to be room – a space – for the spark to ignite. So do you.

For us humans, that gap, between the way things are and the way we want them to be, is that same space where our drive, energy and creativity have room to ignite. It is the drive and energy that are required to close the gap. Without a vision, a vivid picture of the future you want in your mind, there is no gap, and you will never discover your own power.

Try creating a vision, then work at strengthening it every day, and watch what happens.
