If we learn how to use visualization effectively, we can become powerful achievers and create what we want.
Visualization is used in sports, business and life to reach new or greater levels of success. Yet, it’s not something that’s commonly mentioned when wanting to achieve a new outcome.
What is Visualization?
Visualization is a technique that allows us to see an outcome or goal as already complete, before it is. It’s using the power of our mind, through our imagination, to create mental images of what we want.
It’s creating a movie on the screen of our minds of things we’d like to do, achieve or experience. Each time we visualize, we’re engaging our subconscious mind to make what we’re visualizing come true.
Why Visualization Works?
When we visualize, it creates a gap in our subconscious mind between what we currently have or where we are, and what we’re visualizing. This creates structural tension in our mind.
Whenever there is tension, our mind will seek to resolve it. This means our mind will work on filling the gap between what we have and what we want.
This will show up as greater levels of motivation, better ideas and more creativity, so we can reach what we’re visualizing. We’ll also pay more attention things around us, which may be clues to get us closer to where we want to be.
