In this screenplay YOU are the star. You get to write the scenes that will go into your video. In each of the eight scenes we have given you sample questions and sample sentences but remember, “It Is Your Story”.
Writing Your Scenes
Each of your dreams/goals should be written as positive affirmation statements. These statements should be short and succinct, around six words per line if possible.
What is an affirmation statement?
Positive affirmations declare and confirm your positive beliefs about yourself and about life. These simple declarations of who you want to be and how you want to feel are a powerful means of self-transformation and the key element in creating your life of dreams. Any negative thoughts or limiting beliefs can be reprogrammed into positive feelings and images.
Guidelines for creating positive dream specific affirmations:
- Affirmations are positive.
- Avoid using the word “not” in an affirmation.
- Affirmations are stated in the present tense. Stating dreams as if they have already happened give them more power.
- Be as specific as possible, for example “I am living in Washington, DC”, not “I move to another state.”
- Begin your affirmations with “I am …” wherever possible.
- Affirmations use action words.
- Affirmations are personal.
Affirmations are meant to be repeated and reviewed as a means to reinforce your positive beliefs in achieving your Dreams. You are actually giving instructions to your brain on what you want your life to become. Once you have completed your TEL.A.VISION, viewing it repeatedly will allow you to feel the emotions that you will experience as you achieve your goals. The stronger the feelings are, the more powerful the impact.
There are eight scenes for your screenplay. Answer as many questions as you feel comfortable with in each scene. We have given you examples to help you get started. When you are done with all eight scenes you will be ready to move on to “Lesson 5: Writing My Script.”
