The list of Hollywood has-beens is longer than the distance covered by a Space X trip to orbit and back. But then you look at the Hollywood Walk of Fame and you see that there’s a shorter list of those that graduate to classics and evergreens because of their ability to span years and decades of fame and stardom.
A handful of superstars have been very forthright in their admission of using the power of their minds and visualization to get them where they are.

These are people who have learned to will things into being. Not it’s not as simple as a flick of the magic wand. Many an overnight success has taken years of hard work, dedication, persistence and getting back up after being knocked down by failures. But, as long as that success has taken, some have found it while others waitress…
Something gives particular individuals the ability to spot an opportunity, or good timing, and this is the one thing that is different. Getting “discovered” by a big Hollywood producer or talent scout usually happens at auditions, but there are so many cases of the right person being in the right place, at an opportune time.

This is the success of visualization and the ability to focus in a sustained way, on your goals.
Using visualization to be successful
So how do us mere mortals attract success into our lives. What can we learn from those who made it work. Not simple, but eminently achievable.
Your mental and physical habits are extremely important in getting the whole to co-operate and focus on your goals, whatever they are.
