Harnessing the power of creative visualization is one of the most powerful techniques for helping you achieve want you want in life, whether it is that perfect relationship, your dream house or financial prosperity. It is also a great way of developing you own skills and confidence. I have used this technique so many times in the last 10 years to develop my confidence, to make successful presentations, to achieve a great lifestyle and to have a wonderfully fulfilling relationship with my husband and two daughters.
So what is visualization and why does it work? Visualization is about creating a clear mental picture of what you want and constantly focusing on this. In time your brain becomes so accustomed to this picture that you will be attracted both consciously and subconsciously to anything that will help you to achieve this goal. .
I explained this technique to my daughter at which point she declared she wanted to be an actress. She started visualizing exactly what she wanted and also started to talk to me about her dreams. The next week the opportunity arose for her to attend an acting class so having raised her awareness of what she wanted she made the decision to attend. She pictured herself being on stage and now puts herself forward to perform when she can and she has just been offered a place at a local theatre. I can’t wait to see how the next few years work out for her.
Unfortunately the power of creative visualization can work negatively too if you allow it to. Consider the person who thinks constantly about the terrible job they are in and how bad their day will be…and guess what? Their day turns out to be a disaster. And what about the person who starts fantasizing about having an affair? They think they are safe keeping their thoughts in their mind only to find that before too long fantasy turns to reality…scary stuff!
Your thoughts become your reality I really do believe that your thoughts become your reality and one of my favourite quotes is ‘Whether you think you can or you cannot, you are probably right’ Henry Ford.
