Drawing Your Way to Your Dreams

As a lifelong insomniac, I decided to make a sketch of me sleeping peacefully in the future 🙂

What if I told you your ideal future starts with a single drawing?

That’s exactly what Patti Dobrowolski suggests in her TED talk “Draw Your Future.”  She says that if you draw the reality that you want, your brain will find a way to make it happen.

Don’t worry about whether you are good at drawing.  Just make the sketch specific to exactly what you want your future to look like.  Remember to draw yourself happy 🙂  And then color your drawing in with vibrant colors.  Because the more vivid the picture, the better your brain will respond.

The key is to follow these three steps: see it, believe it, and then act on it.

This technique isn’t just for individuals, like artists and entrepreneurs, either.  Big name companies are using this method to get their employees motivated to find solutions for team projects.  It brings new meaning to the phrase “Two heads are better than one.”

What does your future look like?  Draw it and find out!
