Visualization Enhances Rapid Goal Achievement

believe-you-canAchieving Your Goals – The Value of Visualization

The power of goal setting increases when you can clearly visualize what it is that you want to achieve. Professional sports athletes do it consistently.

Visualization is a skill that can easily be learned with practice. Here are 3 tips:

  1. Positive affirmations: The benefit of positive affirmation is that they can help you even before you are successful. What you are doing is changing your mindset to feel like you are successful today, not in the future but today. To write positive affirmations correctly, you need to make them relevant to you, emotional and written in the present. An example would be “I am healthy, happy and have lots of energy today”. Make sure you read them every day to have the most impact on your life.
  2. Motivational aids: In addition to positive affirmations, it is also beneficial to have motivational aids that relate specifically to your goals. Whether it is a picture of a holiday destination, a house that you want to move into or a car, place them in highly visible location so that you look at them every day. Put them where you will run into them.
  3. Think about what your goals will mean to you: Rather than just thinking about your goal, think about the benefits you get when you achieve your goal. It may be more time with family, more money, or feeling healthier. Whatever your reasons are, write them down, and make sure that you look at them regularly. Include relevant photos or other motivational items along with your written words. This will help you to visualize what your success means to you.

To successfully achieve your goals, you have to believe you can. The most effective and efficient way to do this is via repetitive visualization. Here’s to your goal setting success!
