Visualization refers to the practice of seeking to impact the outer world by altering one’s thoughts and expectations. Visualization is the fundamental technique underlying positive thinking and is frequently utilized by athletes to enhance their performance. Visualization is the technique of utilizing one’s imagination to visualize particular behaviors or events occurring in one’s life.
Advocates propose producing a detailed schema of what one wants and then visualizing it again and 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 instance, in sports a golfer might visualize the perfect stroke again and again to mentally train motor skills memory.
Visualization practices are a typical form of spiritual exercise. In Vajrayana Buddhism, complex visualizations are utilized to attain Buddhahood, e.g. Generation Stage. Additionally, visualization is utilized extensively in sports psychology.
A few celebrities have endorsed the utilization of visualization and claimed it had a substantial role in their success. Such celebrities include Oprah, Tiger Woods, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Anthony Robbins, Bill Gates, Ronnie Bernard and other people.
In a 2008 interview with Tavis Smiley, actor Will Smith said he utilized visualization to defeat challenges and, as a matter of fact, visualized his success years before he got to be successful.
A different example is actor Jim Carrey, who wrote out a check to himself in 1987 in the sum of 10 million dollars. He dated it ‘Thanksgiving 1995’ and put in the notation, “for acting services rendered.” He visualized it for a long time and in 1994 he got $10M for his role in Dumb and Dumber!
Don’t get to be a victim of negative target fixation. Don’t allow outside influences to poison your mind with negative propaganda. Center your creativity on where you wish to be and fully accept your role in what you manifest. Then get ready to be amazed as the doors of possibility swing open and your life takes on a totally new dimension.
