7 Secrets To High Performance Thinking
Part 2 - Visualization
In part 1 of
this 7 part series we discussed the power of relaxation. Any
task we attempt is easier if we are relaxed, especially mental
In this report we're going to discuss visualization. Visualization
is a powerful tool when combined with relaxation.
Many individuals say they are unable to visualize or create
pictures in their minds.
That's not really true.
They visualize, but because they haven't practiced controlling
their mental pictures, they see what they want to avoid rather
than what they want to accomplish.
Your mind absorbs what you input and that's why so many of
your fears come true.
You can either control your mental pictures or they will control
You will be drawn to any picture you hold long enough in your
minds eye. No wonder so many of us end up repeating the same
negative habit patterns over and over.
If you want to become prosperous and successful, you must
take control of the movies you play in your mind.
The first step is to make visualizing your more successful,
prosperous self a daily habit.
When you first begin to practice seeing yourself in a new
light, your rational mind will rebel and the doubts will creep
You'll only be able to hold your mental pictures for short
periods of time.
As your practice continues you will be able to hold the pictures
for longer periods of time and you'll be able to view them
in ever greater detail.
If you're wondering if it's worth the effort, I'd like to
give you an example of how powerful visualization is.
When Ali was preparing for his fight against Foreman, the
"experts" gave him little chance of winning.
Foreman was younger, bigger, stronger and hit like a mule.
So what did Ali do?
He went to his training camp and avoided reading all negative
stories about his impending defeat.
He not only began physically training for the fight, he began
mentally rehearsing his reactions to being hit by Foreman.
Ali knew that there was a possibility of being knocked unconscious
during the fight, but how would he handle it?
He began mentally training his body to wrap his arms around
Foreman and clinch as soon as he felt himself begin to lose
The night of the fight his mental training paid off.
In Ali's own words he admitted there were times in that fight
when he was literally out on his feet.
The only thing that saved him from defeat was his visualization
Each time he was hit hard enough to be knocked unconscious,
his body took over and held onto Foreman long enough for Ali
to regain his senses.
That night history was made.
All because of the power of Visualization.
Are you ready to make history?
