Visualization-See What You Want Get What You See
Visualization attracts the people, the ideas, and the opportunities to achieve your goal. Visualization is the art of creating compelling pictures in your mind that will accelerate your success.
A scary movie scares us. But, it’s only a movie. Why does it scare us? It scares us because our brain cannot distinguish what is real and what is imagined. Visualization to success is the same process. You imagine it and it will come. See What You Want, Get What You See!
Athletes all over the world add visualization to their training programs. Athletes visual their images with sounds, emotions and very vivid pictures. Those pictures are very detailed from the beginning of their performance to the end of the performance as they stand on the podium to receive the Olympic Gold Medal.
We remember where we were when we heard about the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. We remember because intense emotion creates an image that may stay locked in the memory forever.
You can bring intense emotional energy to your visualizations by adding real-life smells, deeply felt passion, even loudly stating out loud what that success looks like with exaggerated enthusiasm. These emotions stimulate the growth of the dendrites of brain neurons, which creates more neural connections. The neural connections will lead you to achieve your goal.
For example, Brazilian footballer Ronald employs imagery for game preparation:
“When I train, one of the things I concentrate on is creating a mental picture of how best deliver the ball to a teammate, preferably leaving him alone in front of the rival goalkeeper. So what I do, always before a game, always, every night and every day, is try and think up things, imagine plays, which no one else will have thought of, and to do so always bearing in mind the particular strength of each team-mate to whom I am passing the ball. When I construct those plays in my mind I take into account whether one team-mate likes to receive the ball at his feet, or ahead of him; if he is good with his head, and how he prefers to head the ball; if he is stronger on his right or his left foot. That is my job. That is what I do. I imagine the game.”
If you can’t see it, then it’s not going to happen. You need to picture yourself victorious. Furthermore, you have to look beyond your current circumstances and past failures.
Visualize as many details as you can. If you’re on the beach, feel the warm sun on your body, the wind in your hair, the salty ocean waves spraying on your face. Imagine the environment, the people around you, what you’re wearing, what you’re hearing. You will want to re-create any feelings that are in alignment with your dreams.
Set aside time each day for 10 to 15 minutes to visualize your goals that you need to complete. Psychologists report that it is one of the most vital things you can do to make your dreams come true.
