It works for high level professional athletes.
It propelled the Chicago Bulls to NBA titles.
Their coach Phil Jackson took it to Los Angeles.
There his Lakers won more NBA titles.
Experiments with visualization had similar results.
If you can imagine it, you’ll find a way to do it.
So why aren’t more of us using visualization?
Many of us use visualization every day.
We do it because it has measurable results.
Try these seven easy steps.
1. Find a quiet place at home or work.
2. Shut off the phones and close the door.
3. Close your eyes and think of one major goal.
4. Picture what it will look like when it’s achieved.
5. Imagine going through the steps to get there.
6. Make these mental pictures as vivid as possible.
7. Feel the impact of achieving the goal.
Step #5 is possibly the hardest.
We have to imagine all the steps necessary.
We have to think of who will help us get there.
We have to visualize the resources we will need.
We have to think how much time each step will take.
Don’t get bogged down in too much detail.
We’ll write the plan later.
That’s when we can think this through.
The most important step is to ask yourself:
How does that feel? Does it motivate you?
As you’re reading this, pause for a moment.
Close your eyes and do all seven steps.
These steps will take you to peak performance.
