Do you visualise daily what you want?

What things do you really want in life? Are you finding ways to get them or are they eluding you?


If you are struggling to get what you want, one essential step is to visualise the things you want every day. It is a vital first step on the path to achieving your goals, can be done anywhere and takes little effort or energy...just a few moments of your time.

Sports coaches use visualisation techniques successfully with their athletes as a significant part of their training. They create mental ‘muscle memory’ that when practised repeatedly can have a significant impact on performance with no chance of injury or fatigue. The brain and body already believes it can succeed which is half of the challenge.

To visualise effectively put yourself in a relaxed, calm mental state, be uninterrupted and ready to focus your attention. Take some deep breaths, inhaling slowly and deliberately. Then allow your imagination to create a clear picture of what it is you desire. Allow all your senses to come alive around the subject matter. What does it look like, smell like, feel like, taste like, sound like? Notice how your mind and your body respond when you create a picture of what you want? Allow yourself to feel it is real and already in your life. Notice your mind and body reactions as you do this.

Take advantage of this technique in any aspect of your life. Make a positive shift in your attitude towards the things you want and you are more likely to bring them into your life. It's also fun to do. What do you have to lose?!
