LeMoine's own personal and professional experiences led him to devise the approach, and it is one that is firmly grounded in both the power of positive thinking, and in sound business practices: “One of the most common problems I encounter is that people don’t actually know what it is they want to achieve. They have some kind of vague vision of the future in mind, but nothing workable. You have to identify your dream before you can make it an achievable goal.”
LeMoine finds that one of the simplest ways to do this, is by identifying what’s missing for them, or what they don’t want in their life – then think about the opposite of that, and that will represent what it is they really do want. While Eddie is a sought-after business consultant, his methods are just as easily applied to all individuals.
“You have to start living your life as though you’ve already achieved that goal. Otherwise you’re not going to make the kind of substantive changes needed to get to that point. Think about it this way, if your dream is to be a fitter person, you need to envision what that looks like and shape your behaviours accordingly. Think about what you’d be doing in your life as a ‘fitter’ person – in terms of diet, exercise, and lifestyle. If you incorporate all those behaviours into your life today then guaranteed, that goal will be achieved.”
