Real Life Visualization Stories
to Inspire You

Let's look at visualization stories where people have successfully used visualization in real life.  I can share visualization tips and creative visualization techniques; however, giving you real life examples of visualization in action makes it more real.

The Visualization Story of Jack Canfield

One of the more famous examples of visualization stories is the one that Jack Canfield talks about.  Before he started visualizing, he was only making $8,000 a year.  He set a goal to make $100,000 within a year's time.  He had no idea how he was going to do that. 

So, he made his $1 bill look like $100,000, and taped it to the ceiling.  Every morning when he woke up he saw the  $100,000 "bill" taped to his ceiling.  He then visualized himself living a $100,000 lifestyle.

A month later, an idea came to him while he was taking a shower.  He had written a book which had never done anything with.

Sometime shortly thereafter, the Enquirer magazine stood out in the store he was shopping in.  He thought if the readers in that magazine knew about his book, then he could be well on his way to having hundreds of thousands of people buying his book. 

And, then about a month and half later he was giving a talk to a group of teachers.  A freelance writer who wanted to interview him.  She sold some of her articles to the Enquirer. 

Once she published the article based on her interview with him, Jack Canfield's book sales started to really take off.

By the end of the year, he had made a little more than $92,000.  They certainly were not upset about missing their goal.

Instead, Jack Canfield set a new and bigger goal from himself.  By the way, that book was "Chicken Soup for the Soul".

So, if you take a look at that visualization story... 

Jack began to use the power of visualization.  Then, opportunities opened up for him.  He may have had many opportunities before, but now he was noticing them.  And, then he took action.

Jim Carey

I have mentioned Jim Carey before.  Here, I am going to go into more detail of his use of visualization in real life.

As a struggling actor, Jim Carrey would go to Mulholland Drive.  He would look out at the city and visualize director's being interested in his work, people who he respected saying something like "I like your work." 

He would also visualize things he wanted coming to him.  In one of his quotes he says, "I would visualize things coming to me. It would just make me feel better. Visualization works if you work hard. That's the thing. You can't just visualize and go eat a sandwich."

As mentioned previously, he wrote himself a $10 million check for acting services rendered, and gave himself 5 years.  He succeeded in attaining his goal.

My Visualization Story

I am going to give a simple visualization story of manifesting via the use of visualization in real life.  I think it is important to also see that you do not have to be a celebrity or go after a million dollars.  But that ordinary people can also go after something.

One day, I decided I needed to start looking for my future car

I came across a picture of a Toyota MR2.  On that day, I really wanted the Toyota MR2. 

At the time, the Toyota MR2 was no longer being made.  It was 2009, and the last time they made the Toyota MR2 was 2005.

I decided I wanted a deep blue Toyota MR2 that had less than 17,000 miles on it that I could buy for $17,000 miles or less. 

In addition, the car fit my other requirements of it being a cool looking car, that had a reputation for reliability and pretty good gas mileage especially for a sport car.

I think I looked at a picture of an Toyota MR2 almost every day.  I made one critical mistake.  Instead of looking at a picture of a blue Toyota MR2 almost every day, I looked at a silver Toyota MR2 almost every day. 

One day, I found one on eBay.  The Toyota MR2 Buy Now price was under $17,000.  It had less than 17,000 miles on it.  It was silver
instead of deep blue.  Silver was my 2nd color of choice.

One of the pictures of the car showed it in the person's garage covered with a car cover.  You could tell the owner really loved her car and took care of it. 

I kept watching the car on eBay.  By the way, I never buy cars on eBay.  I pushed Buy Now, site unseen.  One, did I mention I never buy cars on eBay?  I also never buy cars site unseen. 

Two, the car was in New Hampshire and I lived in Virginia.  I have never flown to another state to buy a car. 

However, I figured that I had purchased a good enough deal that if there was anything that needed to be fixed, that it would be no issue.  And, the cost of flying to New Hampshire was minimal in comparison to what I just bought.

Still, I was nervous.  Then, I went to the bank, and was approved for the loan to buy the car.  The bank valued the car about $1,500 above what it was selling for. 

Before I even get to New Hampshire, I have people already asking for rides in this new car.  I get to New Hampshire, the owner insists on picking me up from the airport.  I test drive it with her in the car, and I am totally satisfied.

The only thing the car needed was a set of new tires.  It was the best car I ever owned.
