Successful men and women are very clear about the person they want to be. Having a clear picture of your ideal self will move you toward it. Therefore, try to write down your values, your skills, your attitude, your look, your behavior. Experts even suggest that you write down how you want to be remembered at your own funeral. This is a great exercise, because it will bring up your deepest and truest human values. When you’re finished with the list, take time everyday to read it in the morning, and then act accordingly all day long. At night, right before falling asleep, imagine yourself acting like the person you want to be, in all areas of your life. Imagine yourself being excellent at work, being very friendly with people. Imagining in your mind, is like practicing in reality. The mind will get used to the pictures of your success, and you will tend to act the ideal way in reality.
