Visualization - A powerful success tool!
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” Albert Einstein
The mind is a very powerful thing. Amongst the number of unfathomable tasks it performs it also has the unique ability to imagine. These mental rehearsals can have a powerful impact on our beliefs, behaviors and state.They say a picture is worth a 1000 words. In the same way using the power of visualization helps vividly articulate your goals and desired results thereby manifesting and positively influencing your ability to achieve it.
Visualization – or the act of creating compelling pictures in your mind – may be the most underutilized success tool you possess because it greatly accelerates the realization of your goals. Albeit; ‘visualization works if you work hard. That’s the thing. You cannot visualize and go eat a sandwich,’ says famous actor, Jim Carrey.
Logically, visualizing activates your reticular activating system. (Ref: http://reticularactivatingsystem.org/ ) In other words, it simply tells you what to pay attention to. When you perform any task in real life, researchers have found your brain uses the same identical processes it would use if you were only vividly visualizing that activity. In other words your brain sees no difference whatsoever between visualizing something and actually doing it.
Go on; get into the drivers seat of your life and spend some time every day visualizing another detail of your perfect future ahead.
