Visualize Your Success – Part I
“Visualization is using your imagination to see yourself in a situation that hasn’t yet happened, picturing yourself having or doing the thing you want, and successfully achieving the results you desire.” John Kehoe
Let’s say, for example you want to be more fit. Using visualization, you picture yourself exercising – and enjoying it! You imagine your body changing, becoming more toned and strong. You might even picture the healthy foods you’ll eat as part of achieving your goal. You visualize the confidence and energy you’ll feel as well as activities you will be able to do. You visualize everything that would or could happen to you and live as if it really is happening to you.
I like to workout to this Jillian Michaels video…
About halfway through the workout, when her victims, um,…I mean participants are tired and want to quit (I speak of my own experience, of course) she says this…
”Think about the muscles you’re training. Make that mind body connection. See those muscles getting tighter, getting stronger. Visualize the fat melting off your body. I do this with all my Biggest Loser contestants – they just visualize the muscles working, getting leaner – the body getting smaller.”
Here are a few tips on how to successfully visualize:
1. Decide what you want to do: pass an exam, reach your goal weight, be less shy, win the next game, have more confidence, get the promotion, etc.
2. Relax: Spend several minutes unwinding so you are comfortable and focused in body and mind.
3. Focus: For the next 5-10 minutes visualizing the reality you desire.
Visualizing our future is a powerful tool to help us to live out and manifest our dreams.
“Your thoughts are more powerful than you suspect, and any image held in the mind is a force that will eventually produce an effect. It is not futuristic science that we possess this ability; it already exists within us as a practical tool which we can use any time we choose.” (John Kehoe, Mind Power)
