Are you a believer in the power of visualization?
I am! 100%!
And if you believe in the power of visualization, you are in good company.
Muhammad Ali said, “If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it – then I can achieve it.”
Forming a detailed picture in your mind that plays like a movie of seeing yourself achieve a goal can be super-effective in achieving that goal.
There’s actual scientific research that shows it can help us reach financial aims, lower stress, and find help in relationships. Studies have found that brain activity from thinking about some activities resembles what happens when people actually do those activities.
We still have to work for what we want. But when the thoughts we tell ourselves align with our actions, then we’re truly super-charged.
Performers and athletes know this trick. They Imagine a situation as fully as possible in advance, using all their senses. What will it feel like when they step onto the court, for example? What will the floor look like, the air smell like? Is the crowd cheering or a band playing?
Some people find that writing it down helps, too.
I like saying a simple affirmation – a statement that begins with “I” that’s followed by something I believe or hope to manifest. For example, I might say, “I take actions to strengthen my body and mind,” or “I have love and light in my life.”
These kinds of visualizations will begin to affect your behavior if they’re detailed enough.
The mind-body connection is mysterious and powerful. Start putting it to work!
