No matter where you are in your life, you have the power to bring the change you need and achieve your goals.
The “PPPP” principle is a powerful tool to assist you in determining what you really want and staying on your path.
What’s the PPPP principle?
It stands for Prophesy, Passion, Power, and Propulsion.
The first part is prophesy, which is essentially your “vision” of the dream you would like to create in your life. Passion then creates power, which propels you into full action.
Visualization involves picturing certain things in one’s mind. Try to visualize yourself actually doing your goal, living your goal, succeeding in your goal.
Describe exactly what that looks like, from beginning to end. This could take you an hour, or even longer. Do not be tempted to skip this exercise. If you cannot visualize yourself actually achieving your goal, this will be a major obstacle to your success!
On the other hand, if you can visualize yourself actually achieving the goal, this will provide the passion you need to continue to do the work involved.
Actually we are constantly visualizing. It works by bringing subconscious mental and emotional patterns into consciousness. For example, a man loves baseball, but suffers from arthritis in his hip. Before going to a baseball camp, the man visualizes himself playing baseball, feeling limber and free. In minute detail he fantasizes his movement, his performance, his emotional experience, exactly as he wants it to be. He sees and feels himself a winner. The man proceeds to have a wonderful time at camp and experiences no pain while playing baseball.
Picture the fulfillment of your goals: see it, hear it, smell it, touch it, taste it. Think about what your life will be like when the goals are completed; what will be different, how you will feel. Afterwards, describe the picture in writing.
Passion is born out of your visions. True happiness and inner peace can only be found by pursuing our passion. You can have passion for many different things in your lives, from enjoyment of an athletic sport tofinding a cure for a specific disease.
Passion can be about how you want to feel (loved, admired), how much you want to have (money, material things), how well you want to do (win, improve), how much fun you want to have (hobbies, entertainment), or any number of things.
Perhaps you have many passions. If so, one might say you are a “passionate person.”
Having passion simply means that you have been able to express your inner desires outwardly and have your desires manifested into action and emotion.
Your passion is your purpose and when you suppress (or allow others to suppress) your passion, you hurt yourself. The price you pay for not living our life purpose is huge. The price you pay for not pursuing our dreams is huge.
The price you pay for not achieving your goals is huge. You pay the price in self esteem, personal satisfaction, self actualization and fulfillment. That’s a price you can’t afford to pay.
“The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be” Oprah Winfrey
Are you going to keep your passion in a drawer or are you going to propulsion your passion into action?
You decide what you want but remember your success and happiness are the result of your daily choice !
