Visualization should be part of everyone’s self improvement program. Visualizing has been proven to work in dozens of scientific studies. So how do I apply it to speed up my self improvement program?
Visualizing yourself accomplishing your goals is a very powerful tool that many people don’t take full advantage of in their self improvement programs. Once you try visualization and see its awesome effects you will become a believer.
One classic study of visualization was done involving basketball free throw shooting with 3 groups of people. All three groups were asked to shoot free throws and their results were recorded. After that Group 1 only physically practiced shooting free throws. Group 2 did not practice any free throw shooting, and Group 3 only did visualization exercises involving visualizing themselves shooting baskets.
The surprising result was that Group 1 and Group 3 improved equally between tests. This proves how powerful visualization is.
Almost all Olympic athletes use visualization in their sports programs. East German athletes used these visualization exercises to dominate their competition for years in the twentieth century.
Remember that the mind cannot tell the difference between something that is actively imagined or real. Think about how powerful that statement is.
