Creative Visualization 

Over the last few weeks you have seen the importance of modeling behaviors. Conditioning, this is how we learn. As outlined with Walking and Talking we learned everything originally through this modeling or copycat behavior. Now comes the second part of that process….. Seeing yourself actually doing these things or having these things as already part of your life. Visualizing you in that situation or circumstance that enables you to take the action so you achieve the goal or visualization. Lets now go into a deeper definition of Creative Visualization and then how you are going to use this to increase your belief in yourself and thus your performance.

CREATIVE VISUALIZATION : refers to the practice of seeking to affect the outer world by changing one’s thoughts and expectations. Creative visualization is the technique of using one’s imagination to visualize specific behaviors or events occurring in one’s life.  Advocates suggest creating a detailed mental picture of what one desires and then visualizing it over and over again with all of the senses (i.e., what do you see? what do you feel? what do you hear? what does it smell like?). For example, in sports a golfer may visualize the perfect stroke over and over again to mentally train muscle memory. In physically competitive situations this technique is used over and over again to break through things like The 4 Minute Mile. The Olympic Swimming Records. Remember Usain Bolt. In one of his interviews from the closing of the Olympics he completely gave this technique to the world.
Check out two things in this video :

1) Notice – How powerful thought is as Jim Carey Explains this.
2) Though Every Step – There is a constant Visualization in play all the time of achieving the desired results. Everything that Jim reviews in this video is all about Visualized Intention. What is about to occur in the next few moments in created in your mind first.
Now check out this Experiment :

In one of the most well-known studies on creative visualization in sports, Russian scientists compared four groups of Olympic athletes in terms of their physical and mental training ratios:

  • Group 1 received 100% physical training;
  • Group 2 received 75% physical training with 25% mental training;
  • Group 3 received 50% mental training with 50% physical training;

Group 3 had the best performance results, indicating that certain types of mental training, such as consciously invoking specific subjective states, can have significant measurable effects on biological performance. According to Cummins, “The Soviets had discovered that mental images can act as a prelude to muscular impulses It has since become more widely understood and accepted in neuroscience and sports psychology that subjective training can cause the body to respond more favorably to consciously desired outcomes.

So in this experiment it is clear – very clear – that the entire game of visualization AND Success stems from a combination of 50% Mental and 50% Physical. Meaning 50% of your time will be mental preparation and study. THEN and only then, are you even READY to take action.

Today we are going to cover exactly how I do two forms of this visualization. One will be long term visualization and the components of what to do there and the other would be short term visualization like what I do a few minutes before this call or a few minutes before I return calls to potential prospects. I will also go one step out of the box and review how visualization can create triumphs in your personal life as well. So come prepared today with an open mind.

Mindset Merchants Call Reminder

Today’s Topic : Visualization

Perhaps the single most important tool we have in our lives for creating our futures is OUR IMAGINATION. Our Imagination allows us to visualize everything before it happens or even comes into existence or into our life experience. Touching on it now is of extreme importance.

If you look out the window right now perhaps at a neighbors home or even around your own office at all of the devises you may take for granted….. Nearly every device or invention, including the chair you are sitting on has been created in someone’s mind as a visualization first. Someone dreamed it up, then they visualized more and more details until a clear picture, a plan if you will, was created. Then with that plan resources, focus, energy, and effort were added to the recipe and WA-LA a prototype model of your chair was created (Goal Achieved). Now through experience we can hone down a plan to repeat the process of producing the chair and we now have something to be Grateful For.

Without first visualizing your goals they will never come into existence. The more we focus on these mental pictures and share with others, the larger the change that resources and energy will joining forces with us in creating the vision.
So today, I will share with you the process I go through every day in visualizing and using visualization to experience my goals before they come into reality. This practice on a daily basis inspires me to do more and more. It breathes life and emotion into each goal and clearly inspires me and adds to  my vibration. When we are complete today we’ll open the call up for an extended period of time and see how things are coming along for anyone that wishes to share. It is my desire for everyone to walk away and dream up how spectacular their future can be all weekend.

See you on the Call

The 7 Principles of Attaining Spiritual, Mental, and Physical Freedom
We will cover these over the next 7 calls, we’ll start with topic number one tomorrow. All of these Principles are the way out of “DRIFTING” and into the FREEDOM of thinking FOR and BY yourself. This will be key as you totally take control of your own life.
Here are the Principles :
1) Definiteness of Purpose
2) Mastery Over Self
3) Learning from Adversity
4) Controlling Environmental Influence (Not Ignoring It)
5) Time (The Use of Time to Focus on Positive Rather Than Negative Thought HABITS, Thus Developing Wisdom).
6) Harmonization of All of This (Acting with Your Definiteness of Purpose, so that Purpose becomes the Dominating Influence pf your Thoughts and Actions).
7) Caution – Not Fear (Thinking Through Your Plan Before You Act, Then Staying The Course Once Your Plan Is In Action).
