Sadhguru’s 10 Practical Tips for Success

“With the source of creation ignited within you, you are a powerful source of creation...Now, visualize three things you want to accomplish: one, a short term vision, something you want to accomplish within the next two months; second, a mid term vision, something you want to accomplish in the next two to three years; and then a long term vision, something that you want as a life’s accomplishment. Now, visualize your first vision. Create a vivid positive image of your vision in your mind, and see it being accomplished...” – Meditation guided by Sadhguru
