Visualization is a very powerful technique for achieving goals in life. An old saying goes, that whatever a man can visualize and believe, he will definitely achieve. Many people see visualization as day-dreaming, or some meaningless activity. But the truth is that many highly successful businessmen, athletes and other important figures throughout history, have all taken advantage of visualization at some point.
There are many visualization techniques for success. The important thing is that you create the experience of what you want, in a most compelling and vivid manner. What happens then is that you get motivated to achieve the dream. The law of attraction kicks in, sending your subconscious into action, and opening your eyes to opportunities. Following are 3 popular methods with which you can make use of visualization.
The use of index cards is a popular method of visualization. It simply entails writing down your goals on a pack of blank cards. Most people use 3×5-inch index cards, although you could practically use any card format of your choice. You will either go through the cards in the mornings, or evenings, or even both in the mornings and evenings.
As you read the goal on each card, you should pause and visualize the entire goal. Make it as vivid as possible. Hear the sounds, smell everything, feel the entire emotion. Remember anyway, that focus is very important. The more goals or cards that you have, the less effective your manifestation will be. For best results then, stick to just one goal until you achieve it, then you can focus on the second goal.
Vision boards are another great method of feeding your mind with the images of your desire. You can build them with anything you like, carton, poster boards, large piece of paper, e.t.c. The important thing here is that you place images of the things or the life that you desire on it, and that you take a look at it, at least once, daily.
When looking at your vision board each day, you should take your time to go though the images. Feel yourself as if you already have it, taste it, smell it, and experience it totally. One tip is that instead of having different pictures representing different desires, you could have multiple pictures representing just one goal or desire. This makes your visualization more intense, as going through each picture intensifies your desire for a particular goal, making it manifest quicker.
This is a technique most often practiced by athletes, but it can be used by just about anyone and for any goal. You begin by imagining yourself in a cinema. You are seated, and a movie is playing. The movie has to portray the exact goal that you want to achieve. See it in full color and detail, smell and feel it all.
After a while, get up and enter into the movie, allowing it to enmesh you with every detail. You are now completely part of it. As you continue to experience every tiny detail of your desire in the movie, let that detail slowly assimilate into your body, until all of the movie has entered into you, energizing you thereby with its details.
To sum it up, the above 3 techniques are quite common, and can each be adapted to your specific needs. The important thing to remember is to make the visualization as real as possible. Should you need more information concerning the subject, watch this video here.
