“To accomplish great things we must first dream, then visualize, then plan… believe… act!”
~Alfred A. Montapert
When you imagine your goals and dreams do you experience a sense of peace knowing they will come to fruition? If so, chances are you are using your “power” of visualization in a positive manner and having success with the strategy. You probably also find it’s pretty fun! It’s similar to daydreaming as a child when anything was possible, and negative self-talk hadn’t crept in quite yet.
Whether we recognize it or not, we are always visualizing. It’s what we do when we rise in the morning and think about our commitments for the day, how the interview will pan out, or how a critical conversation with a colleague or loved one will go.
The key is the underlying feeling to our visualizations. We have the ability to envision things and events in a positive manner, or we can choose to approach with trepidation and fear.
Dr. Maxwell Maltz, author of Psycho Cybernetics, noted in his book:
“Your subconscious cannot tell the difference between a real memory, and a vividly imagined visualization”
Basically, when you choose to visualize the positive, your subconscious mind actually “believes” you already are the person you strive to be. A bonus is a big boost of confidence as well!
Take some time today to close your eyes and have some fun with visualization. Take a trip in your mind to six months from now. Visualize your goals in this journey, who you are sharing your life with, where you are living, where you are working, how you are feeling.
Wishes to you for a happy day!
