I really wish I didn’t know so well that sometimes, it is hard to visualize yourself as anything other than “less” than ordinary, let alone extraordinary.
Fortunately, there are many extraordinary people around and because they are extraordinary, they are more than willing to help you and encourage you. I was fortunate enough to meet one such person, Monica Sholar, an up and coming author.
She has given me some very good advice as well as encouragement to continue my writing efforts.
My wife, who is an English Major and a retired Detroit Public School teacher recently started reading one of her books, The 24th Letter, which is part of Monica’s Belle Isle Heights Series, and my wife thought it was very well written.

RESULTS OF LAST WEEK’S POLL
I am overjoyed to report that close to 95% of you believe making your dreams come true is within your own power.
THIS WEEK’S JOKE (If in your mind’s eye you see yourself as extraordinary, you may also see how this joke relates to the topic–anyway, it was the best I could come up with for this topic)
A man went into a bank to withdraw some money.
The bank teller asked, “Can you identify yourself?”
The man reached into his pocket, pulled out a mirror, looked into it, and said, “Yes, that’s me.”
WEEK 9: VISUALIZATION–IN YOUR MIND’S EYE, SEE YOURSELF AS EXTRAORDINARY
If you can’t imaging something, it is unlikely it will happen. If you want to be extraordinary, you need to spend time visualizing yourself as extraordinary. Before going into situations, you need to visualize yourself over and over as extraordinary in that situation.
If you can’t even imagine yourself as extraordinary, how can you expect to be extraordinary?

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK
“Ordinary people believe only in the possible.
Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable,
but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible,
they begin to see it as possible.”

SELF-HELP BOOKS IN ADDITION TO MY OWN
Back in 1999, I was in Las Vegas and visited the Liberace Museum. While there, I learned of the great influence Claude Bristol’s book had on the extraordinary entertainer, Liberance.

Although I try not to suggest movies that I suggested in my book, I just had to suggest this movie again. When it comes to Visualization, well, if you watch it you will see what I’m mean.
