Sit alone in a quite place. Imagine that it’s the last day of this year and the clocks are about to chime in the New Year. Really imagine it’s the last few moments of this year.

See the picture as clearly as you can and use all your senses. Add sound to your picture. Add the smell of wine, food or even fireworks. If you are in the company of other people smell their perfume and cologne. Feel how real this mental picture is as best you can. You are proud of yourself because you have worked hard this year to make your dreams come true. Now you can relax and allow yourself to revel in the thrill of your achievements and the excitement that the coming year will be even better!
You know that this New Year holds even bigger gains for you. Imagine everyone congratulating you on having such a successful year and praising you on your efforts and successes.

This is a powerful way to program your mind for success. You can of course use self hypnosis to make the process easier and to drill the message into your subconscious mind. Visualization is a powerful tool when used on its own but it is almost unstoppable when used in conjunction with hypnosis!
