Achieve Goals with Color Therapy
Accomplish Goals Through Color Visualization
Visualize goals in color to gain personal achievement. Positive colors affect our mood, energy and success. Color therapy has been used for years. Colors can make us feel optimistic, calm or sexy. It is not a proven science. Big corporations have studied the psychological value of colors and used it to their advantage. McDonald's uses the colors of red and yellow. The right mix of these colors can stimulate our appetites, making us feel hungry and entices us to buy more.

Visualize Goals with Color and Positive Thinking
Combine goal setting and positive thinking to colors for maximum achievement.
True success must be visualized in a positive way. Clear our mind of all negativity. Reading a book on goal setting and positive thinking is a good start in the right direction. Attract your life to things you do want. Start with step-by-step goals and work up for greater achievement. Add a splash of color to enhance the effect.
Setting goals and sticking with them is not always easy. First we need to set aside some private time where there is no interference from the TV, a dog barking, children or our work. Start writing realistic goals in baby steps. Take more steps each time.
Begin with a plan of action on how these goals will be achieved. Write each goal out. Exclude the words "I will" or "I want." These words represent things that have not yet happened. Envision your goal as something already achieved with positive affirmations.
1. I lost five pounds by the end of the week on (this date).
2. I exercise with two 30 minute workouts everyday.
3. I have eliminated extra sugar and salt to my food.
Envision a color that is soothing, calm and energetic. Add a color that will help you achieve your goal, then highlight your written goal and post it on your refrigerator. In color therapy, different colors have different meanings. Green is the color of health. Green could stimulate your brain into eating more leafy vegetables. Remember that all goals need to be broken down in how you plan to work on it. How are you going to get more fit? What exercises will you be doing?
This same Plan of Action can be applied to any goal. Independent wealth, trip to Hawaii, physical and emotional health or writing a book can be part of your resolution for this year.

It is not as easy as it sounds. First you need to change you way of thinking. Release you negative energies. Gain positive thoughts. A positive mind releases positive energy. Set some time out for yourself and write down your affirmations on paper.
