Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it,believe in it.
Make your mental blue print, and begin to build. ~ Robert Collier
Visualization is any technique for creating images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message. Visualization through visual imagery has been an effective way to communicate both abstract and concrete ideas since the dawn of man. It is very powerful technique that helps the visualizer plan and imagine its way to success.
This ancient technique is a method that has been helping many ambitious and successful people throughout the history of mankind. The reason it works so well is that when we visualize things our mind believes that what we imagine is real.
This video describes how to use visualization for success:
Why is this important to the success of the end result?
In most cases when it comes to getting or achieving something that we do not yet have, our desire is tinged with a sense of lack. Often, and especially when there is a pressing financial need, health issue, the goal is usually underpinned with strong emotions, particularly fear.
Negative emotions such as fear, anger, blame and lack conjure up images (and internal talk). These internal movies will play over and over in your mind making your brain work very hard and directing your attention to more of what you DON’T have.
This produces flight chemicals in the body. This in turn generates more negative images and disempowering thoughts.
And let’s face it, it’s hard to be positive and proactive if you feel impoverished, unworthy, deprived, or frightened.
This is where visualization comes to the rescue.
Research has shown that shifting into positive fantasy mode is most effective when we need to decrease negative emotions. So for example, when anxiety is getting the better of us the healthiest thing to so is redirect your mind to something that’s positive. Visualization is an excellent and effective tool for doing exactly that.
The key here is to shift from a fear or lack state to an empowered state where we are better able to apply appropriate action, strategies and a relaxed belief to whatever we are visualizing. When we so this with focused intent, our whole mind and heart is engaged in creating and generating the energy to succeed. Therefore success is inevitable.
I’ve been surfing the internet for some helpful information about visualization to find more answers on “WHY” and “HOW” this ancient method becomes one of the most effective technique to success.
I came across the article entitled The Power Of Visualization In Manifesting Your Success by Paul Hudson
In his article he explains the power of visualization and how it helps us to bring greater levels of success into our lives. He says:
You will have to learn as much information as possible about the details and circumstance of your dream in order to create the best visual approximation and in order to mentally live the experience more fully. But once you create a full version of this reality in your mind, you will be living your dream before you even achieve it.
Hudson shares compelling examples and advice with us that include:
