Most people drive through life with their psychological brakes on. The brakes are negative images we hold on to about ourselves, such as inaccurate beliefs about reality, guilt, negative self-talk and self-doubt. This negative energy, even if it’s subconscious, can be a real obstacle to accomplishing your goals, no matter how hard you try or how good your intentions may be.
Successful people release the brakes.
All those unfounded beliefs are like a prison. They don’t allow us to go out and reach our goals, so first we must get out of our self-imposed prisons.
One of the powerful methods to break free of those limitations is visualization: creating powerful and compelling new internal images of having, doing and creating what we want.
Visualization is the act of creating compelling and vivid pictures in your mind, and makes the brain achieve more. Your mind cannot distinguish between a real and an imaginary event. That’s one of the reasons why nightmares can appear so vividly real that we wake up in fear, believing it was real. When you visualize your goals in your mind as already achieved, your subconscious mind will find solutions to turn your visualizations into reality.
The process of visualization is quite simple. All you need to do is close your eyes for a few moments and see your goals as already achieved. To make the process even more powerful you can add sounds, feelings and emotions to turn the images in to short movies that you play in your mind time and time again. Feeling and experiencing the visualization is the most important ingredient: this shouldn’t be a chore but something fun to do. By feeling happy, we’ll be able to create a happy future.
