The Power of Visualization

Posted by Ms. Insane at 3:45 PM
So, I it's mid-January and I haven't achieved anything yet. I still have no job and no money and I am totally and literally going insane! I know it is me who can only help me, so after this post, I really just have to do something. Something productive and something that I can earn money with. Haha!

Last night, I was browsing through my Facebook homepage when I saw a previous co-worker uploaded some pictures that describes what she wants to acquire for this year. I am impressed and I agree to what she believes in: The Power of Visualization.

It is a principle where one should own the things he or she wanted to have or wanted to be. Let say for example, instead of saying I want to have a car this year, you should say, "This black 2010 Audi is mine." It is something like that. If you want to get something, you just have to visualize how does it exactly look like and declare it to be yours. Own it!

So after, liking her post, I have decided to revisit what I have written here. And here are the things that I WILL HAVE AND I WILL BE IN 2011.

1. Salon and Spa Business

It's gonna open at the second half of this year. It has 4 styling stations, 2 nail stations, 1 shower station and 1 massage station. I will, of course, tell you when the renovation has already started. =)

The other priorities I have listed are non-material so I have to omit them and replace them with the things I really really wanted to have this year. So here are the others:

2. Nikon D5000

I guess you guys deserve better pictures, right? =)

3. Iphone 4 ~ my Nokia N81 already needed its break... =)

4, Ipad 32G

Eversince Apple released its new gadgets, I have always wanted to get one, but its prices are holding me back. I always end up with gadgets that has much cheaper price because, well, they are much cheaper. Boo! Haha! But never did I feel satisfied with them because I know what I really want. So this year, I am giving myself these things. Period. Ahi! =)

5. Shopping. Shopping. Shopping. Shopping. Shopping. Shopping.
Who doesn't want to go shopping? In 2010, I have deprived myself from new clothes, new bags, new shoes, new makeups, and I think it's one of the reasons why I became Ms. Insane. So in 2011, I am going all out! But not to the point I am going to spend everything! Promise! =)

6. Travel. Travel. Travel. 
I didn't go anywhere last year, so this year, I am making sure to be able to travel before the year ends.

I will go here:
... and here:
7. Lose weight. 

Like many other girls writing their goals for a new year, I, myself, would also want to shed some pounds off. I gained a lot of weight last year so I have to take them off. And we're talking about 20lbs.

Go green with me this year... err.. can it just be, slightly green?  =)

8. Earn lots of moolah!
I know, I know! I can't have all the things I have listed here if I don't have enough money. So I am earning lots of cash starting this year.

9. Save money.

It has been written in the previous post that I have to save at least 20,000 this year and I am sticking to it. That's the reason why I need to earn lots of moolah. That's for me to be able to buy and do the things I want and save money at the same time. I don't want to experience having nothing in my purse, ever again!

10. Time for family. 
I don't think I have given it all in the past years. I am not living with my parents and I am honestly spending less time with them. Since my father is not getting any younger, I think it's about time to spend time with them some more. =)

How do you think will I be able to achieve them all? All I need is a:

WELL-BALANCED LIFE that I know, is hard to achieve. But many other people has been successful in attaining it. So why can't I? It'll definitely be hard at first but will absolutely be beneficial not only for me, but for all the people around me and cares for me. =)

 A part of having a well-balanced life is having time for your spiritual side of self. And through Him, I am pretty sure, everything's gonna fall to its right place.

So that's it! It's been a long post. This has been a great time-killer and realization that's why I am encouraging you to try it as well!

I am leaving you the following tips:
1. Define your goals. - What do you want to achieve this year? What are you looking forward to at the end of 2011?
2. Visualize your goals. - Be specific. If you can paint them in your head, then go ahead! It is better if you find pictures in the Internet (just like what I did), print them and post it on your walls. It is better if you always see them so you won't forget what you are working for and have something to look forward to. =)
3. Own them. - Do not say, it is hard or it is expensive or it is impossible. You have to believe first that you can achieve them or else, nothing will happen.

Remember, you have to believe in your dreams and you have to believe that you can DO IT.


NOTE: The pictures used in this post are not mine but used them through Google. If you think those pictures are yours and you want them to remove them, just leave me a message. =)

2011 Bucket List

Posted by Ms. Insane at 1:34 AM
2010 hasn't been too good to me, even if I think I've been nice. Anyway, since it's a new year and a new decade at the same time, I have decided to just look forward to this year and the coming years instead of looking back and cry over the things that happened in the past.

I guess I have to accept that all things happen for a reason. My 2010 started with a bang. I spent my New Year with my family and even had a wonderful vacation with them. Even if I lost my job in December 2009, because the company where I was working at closed down due to the global financial crisis, I immediately found a new job before that year ended. My work went well and I was given officer duties in 3 months time. I started a beauty business in the first half of the year. Everything went well at those times. But then, after my birthday in June, everything started to fall down, one by one. My business partner left me which made me decide to stop operating my business. I lost my job in October and just before the year ends, I had a HUGE disagreement with my parents. I don't know why everything happened. I can't even figure out how they all started. I spent New Year's Eve crying and praying, hoping that the new year will give me another life, another happiness. I still have the faith in Him. I still believe that He knows why I should go through these. So now, I want to start this year with a smile, full of hope and positivity. I just want to make the past my steps to become a stronger and better person. I have more to do as days go by. I still have my dreams and I will never get tired of dreaming and trying to achieve them all. I want to learn how to focus this year. I want to focus on my goals and I want to look back at this post at the end of this year, with a huge grin on my face, because I know that I was able to achieve them all. I want you to become my witnesses and with your support, I going to have the drive to reach them.

So without further ado, here are my priorities for the Year 2011:
1. Get a decent job from a stable company and become a regular employee.
2. Talk to my parents and settle what I have to settle with them. They are my family and I don't want to lose them.
3. Save money. I want to see at least 20,000 at the end of the year. That's me being realistic.
4. Lose weight. I gained a lot of weight last year. As in A LOT! My partner and I have already started eating less and healthier food in January 2nd. So my goal is to lose AT LEAST 20lbs. this year. Better if I'll be able to lose more. =)
5. Travel. I know it's nonparallel to number 3, but I really do want to go to somewhere this year 'cos I didn't last year. Local travel will do. =)
6. Volunteer. This has been my long time to-do thing, and I will finally do it this year.
7. Have AT LEAST 10 followers by the end of the year. Help!!! =)

Even if I already do have priorities, there are still other things that I wish I will be able to do or to have this year. And those are the following:
1. Get myself an SLR. I want to have a Nikon D5000. But to be more realistic, a Canon Cybershot will do for I am only using my mobile phone's camera for now. =)
2. I want to go and spend a weekend at a beach resort once every quarter.
3. End this year with better locks - not damaged and with a different hairstyle. I know it sounds easy to achieve but maintaining the kind of hair I have in my country is a bit pricey. So it is a want for me this year. =)
4. Move to a new apartment with my partner.
5. Start a food business or a salon business. These two are my dream businesses and I will have them soon. I know! =)

I'll come back to this post from time to time to check if I've done them all. I'll also add more whenever I think of a new one.

Have a great day!

With much love,
