Visualization leads to actualization!

What does this mean?

Visualization is a mental tool using imagination to realize all aspects of an object, action or outcome.   In this case, you are using your intellectual factor of imagination to see yourself already in possession of your goal –> the healthy and fit physique you desire.  Picture yourself with your goal body, and literally feel what it is like to have it.  You cannot achieve anything in your “outer world” until you first see it in your “inner world.”

Visualization is another tool that Olympic athletes use to get their minds in shape for competition.  In this technique, athletes mentally rehearse exactly what they have to do to win.  Sports psychologists say that visualization boosts athletes’ confidence by forcing them to picture themselves winning.  It also helps them concentrate on their physical moves, rather than on distractions around them.

Remember, all things are created twice – first in the imagination and then second in the physical world.

Study this excerpt from Napoleon Hill’s famous book, Think & Grow Rich:

“If you think you are beaten, you are,

If you think you dare not, you don’t

If you like to win, but you think you can’t,

It is almost certain you won’t.

“If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost

For out of the world we find,

Success begins with a fellow’s will—

It’s all in the state of mind.

“If you think you are outclassed, you are,

You’ve got to think high to rise,

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win a prize.

“Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man,

But soon or late the man who wins

Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!”

I suggest you do this to succeed:

  • Create an affirmation statement and visualize yourself with your goal achieved.  For example, “I know I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.”  or “I believe in, trust and have confidence in myself.”Put your affirmation statement in places you’ll see it often like your bathroom mirror, car and desk. Put it on a card and keep it in your pocket at all times.
  • Create a Vision Board – cut out pictures of your goal (i.e., fit bodies, athletes, etc.) and make a collage that you can view often. Get emotionally involved when you look at it.
