Self-suggestive visualization is a psychological technique to achieve a desired emotional condition through imagining a concrete image. For example, some athletes are stimulated by imagining the perfect execution of their movements and stressed employees relax by imagining a reassuring scene.
“You will never achieve what you want. You will only achieve what you can see clearly. ” Zig Ziglar
Things are created twice. First, in the mind through visualization and then on paper. That is why it is so important to take the goals with you from one place to another and to repeat them as many times as possible. Repetition is the mother of skill.
The interesting thing about this is that scientists say that the brain uses images before interpreting them and, of course, images that have great power over our feelings and actions. The rule works as follows: thoughts — feelings — actions — results.
For example, if I say the word car, you don’t think of the letters c-a-r, but of a vehicle. The impressive thing is that the mind does not need to create an image of something that is real, I can tell you the words red lettuce and you see it and visualize it even if it does not exist, and in seconds you turn it into a clear image.
If I ask you to visualize a lemon and put it in the palm of your hand and slowly bring it close to your mouth. While you open it slowly you can see the green color of the lemon sweating and drops sliding down your hand. You immediately start salivating and feel the lemon acid, which does not exist, but all this is created by you. The mind does not discern between what is an actual reality and a reality “created” by you. Always visualize in positive since the mind does not understand the no. Do not think negative. For example, if I tell you not to think of blue, there is no way or way that you cannot think of blue, you can think of another color, but not thinking of blue does not exist.
We don’t have the luxury of thinking negatively, with pessimism and defeat, because we immediately feel those emotions.
