The Importance of Visualization
The reason visualization is effective is that in some ways, your brain can’t tell the difference between a real event and an imagined one — by using your imagination, you can create positive “experiences” that improve your self-image and your skills, help you release worry, realize your goals, and so on. The possibilities are endless.
You can now create an image of your body that fits your genetic type and potential. It must be an attainable vision, not one that will be out of reach. For example, I’m never gonna be able to slam-dunk like LeBron James — I’m five feet two! But it doesn’t mean that I can’t play one hell of a mean basketball game. I will be the best player that I can be, and at the end of the day that’s what counts. Your imagination can be the source of your fear, but it can also provide the remedy.
By harnessing the power of your imagination and practicing visualization, you can make your mind work for you, not against you.
