Visualize Your Future – Mindset Monday
“Create a vision of who you want to be, and then live into that picture as if it were already true.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger
Five years ago, before Fitlife began, I was sitting on out on the bay in Tampa Florida. I remember watching the waves crashing and trying to visualize the life I really wanted.
You see, at the time I was not living true to my authentic self. I was successful by the world’s standards… running a debt and credit settlement company and creating online programs. I was good at business and at keeping the bills paid while also having some fun on the side. But I didn’t feel “fulfilled”.
So that day I was trying to think about what my life would be like if I was truly following my authentic purpose and mission on the planet.
I knew that to pursue my passions and take a shot at my dreams, I needed to feel financially safe. I needed a financial cushion of at least 6 months in my bank account so that I could stop what I was doing currently and spend that time focusing in on my life’s purpose.
I started visualizing myself already living in San Diego. I knew it was expensive there so I picked a good number of what I thought would get me through 6 months of the basics.
I came up with a $70,000 dollar figure.
I started to try and visualize my future based on the dreams and desires of my heart as if I was already living it. I felt it. Breathed it in. Focused on it.
What happened in the next five days was nothing short of a miracle.
My buddy called me up and asked me to do a webinar. I didn’t think much of it. I didn’t know how much it would generate
But five days later, I woke up with $70,348 dollars in my bank account.
No joke. That really happened. Manifesting at its finest. (this stuff works, I’m telling you…)
In that moment, I knew that the power of imagination was so REAL. And it was up to me to create the life I wanted. No more excuses.
My Life Now
“Visualization and belief in a pattern of reality activates the creative power of realization.” – A.L. Linall, Jr.
It started in my imagination. I took action and because of that, my reality shifted in alignment with my true purpose.
As of now at Fitlife, we now have a team of 65 people. We have a superfood powder that is changing people’s lives. We have our own probiotic supplement that is helping to improve people’s wellbeing.
Something I visualized a few years back was reading emails from Fitlifers all over the world; people who were watching our videos and loving them.
And that is actually happening now! Every day… and that’s so exciting!
“Proper visualization by the exercise of concentration and willpower enables us to materialize thoughts, not only as dreams or visions in the mental realm, but also as experiences in the material realm.” – Paramahansa Yogananda
This concept has been expressed throughout my whole life.
We live in a physical reality. But there is a lot going on that can’t be seen right away with our eyes. There is a whole subconscious realm that is helping to create your future.
How do you tap into that?
The power of visualizing every single day is underrated. The truth is, it’s backed by science and it really works!
You know the mind is extremely powerful. Your thoughts, memories and especially the thoughts you think over and over again have tremendous influence over who you become. When you consciously visualize living a certain life, it helps your brain create the neural pathways to do just that.
When you visualize your future, be sure to incorporate all of the senses. Sight, touch, sound, smell, even taste… imagine everything. Every detail. The more detailed the visual, the more powerful it will be. You can even visualize it from multiple perspectives. See it through your own eyes, then watch yourself do it through someone else’s! What do you look like to those around you?
Pick a time during the day when you can use this technique. At night before falling asleep, during some quiet time outside, or even during a bathroom break. Visualize yourself in the future you want over and over again until the scene comes to you easily.
The bottom line…
You deserve to have the life of your dreams. You deserve to do something that you really love. You deserve to feel complete when you go to bed at night. You deserve to get good rest because what you’re putting out into the world is changing people’s lives.
Start telling yourself you deserve that.
Start putting yourself in that place of feeling what your future is going to be like.
I bet you in a year from now you are going to be blown away by what has happened in your life!
You deserve it all. And you CAN have it all. Trust. Make a plan. Take action. Never quit.
Remember, we’re in this together.

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
