Or, more accurately I guess, a song that could be the theme song for the ideal you, for the you that you want to be, for the you of your dreams.
Find a song that makes you think of cool/epic shit – for me, that means lotsof soundtrack music. But it could be classical, metal, hip hop, whatever. If it works for you, if it makes you feel something, preferably something good/positive/empowering, then it’s perfect.
Put on some headphones and listen to that song as loud as comfortably possible and close your eyes. Now think of something that you could be doing where that music would be fitting to play in the background. Maybe you’re kung-fu fighting a bunch of ninjas, or stepping in the club looking fly as shit, or climbing a mountain, it doesn’t matter – it’s your fantasy. The important thing is that you put yourself there, that you hold that strong image in your mind of yourself being awesome and doing cool shit. By the time the song’s over, you’ll probably feel a little better about yourself, and best of all, you might want to actually do something, to take action. Or at least, I always do.
Basically, you’re conditioning yourself to think that you can be awesome. If you do this enough times, you don’t have to do the closing your eyes bit anymore – you’ll just hear that song come on and automatically start feeling better. I don’t know whether to call it meditation or image training or what, but it usually helps me out when my self-esteem is tanking (which is often enough). I decided to make this post in the hope that it might help somebody else out there, too~ Love and peace~
