Like I said, I don't believe that just visualising these things will "attract" them to me. I know that I actually have to take steps to grab them for myself. But I think that it helps, in a way - if only to justify all the time I spend dreaming.
Here is some food for thought: the darker side to positive thinking, by Barbara Ehrenreich. In animation. Warning: these videos are dangerously addictive (in a good way, unless you have work to do).
And a few intriguing quotes from another Barbara, Barbara Kingsolver...
"The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance, but live right in it, under its roof."
"Your dreams, what you hope for and all that, it's not separate from your life. It grows right up out of it. "
"It's the one thing we never quite get over: that we contain our own future."
