Good luck on your journey!
In fact what you are doing is exercising your imagination/visualization skills. By seeing yourself from another perspective.
Also if it works for you, why kick it. Keep on at it with many goals you want to see achieve.
The more you do it the more you will have faith in the technique of looking at yourself from somewhere else.
I have done it too. Even to the extent of become an animal and seeing myself from the cats perspective. It's fun way to explore your imagination.
Xo, cheers to completing your goals in life.
