As I began my online life coaching session with my client, one thing I asked them is if they have ever done any visualization. While it is quite common in sports and the New Age circles ever since movies like The Secret, many professionals still do not understand its value. Here are what some of them said about their feelings towards this method:
Visualization has to be backed by massive action or nothing is going to happen. I struck out for three years in youth baseball. After that every night when going to bed i "pictured in my mind" seeing the ball pitched to me and hitting it every time. Other than that I used rocks and an aluminum bat to "knock out flies". The next two years in little league I batted over .500 and placed 2nd in the home run hitting contest. Have also used this in weight lifting for years. Now all these years later I hear all this about visualization. It really does work.
The part that caught me was how your life changes in a moment, not 10 years, you don't have to wait till you become a master for your life to change, it can change today. I've used visualization to amass my first 6 figures in life through internet marketing. I’m now self sufficient for the last 7 years and spend my days helping others do the same.
Instead of using visualization to keep fueling endless greed for wealth, fancy cars, big houses and sex, why not visualize how we can find beauty and excitement in what seems ordinary and to become more selfless? I guess it's because that doesn't sell so many books.
I have been changing my mind and life for the past few weeks and I already feel much better. My results have not changed drastically yet, but I know it's coming, I can feel it 100%. I recommend that everyone watches this video at least once and gets motivated to start changing their life for the better.
We all have potential but nobody is perfect, I am introvert, I get bullied, I have a hard time convincing people, Sometimes I overthink and I become SHY at times to converse too closely, as to expose myself, weakness.
I visualized health and synchronicity! I saw this blonde guy on the right this morning in front of my home in Puerto Rico! He was driving a jeep wrangler and wanted to say hi to me. I'm sure of it. He was getting ready for my yoga class tonight. Visualization is great in may ways, but the story about the basketball free-throws test isn't the way he tells it. The ones that only did imaginary didn't improve. The group (there were four groups, not three) that did BOTH real practicing and imaginary performed better than the ones that did only practicing. Besides, they only did 20 free throws a day and not every day. So the test is inconclusive. Nevertheless, I do believe in visualizing, it's only that you have to be more rigorous if you want to be credible.
I tried the visualization exercise during my yoga practice, and after doing a pose and then doing the visualization my flexibility and mobility improved by about 50%, amazing. I will apply this to my sales career today and am looking forward to increase my sales by 50%.
I have never driven a truck for a living. I know men and women who live for it. You just called those people losers. Is it so important that your second wife is "beautiful"?You often make note of it. Did the first wife get old? Like a Jim Jones ...you told people to walk through fire . How many were badly burned and taken to a hospital? Now your second trick....if you had ever physically trained....you don't look it....you would know that your second movement or stretch will go farther because you warmed up...not because you 'visualized" it. The two men look at you kind of in shock....aren't you just using them to generate more money? In the beginning , you were a great man who motivated and educated people. Now you look like a very disturbed man trying to pay the bills for the "things" you need.
My will to achieve has been dampened by my own limitations and my ability to believe that "this is enough" even though I have a visualization of myself as an entrepreneur. I have future visualizations that I know will happen "some day". I do not place urgency on them. NO sure of my next step but I will continue my journey. What ever happens - You have had an impact.
I resisted most of the actions he taught as I listened while hiking or driving to and from work in the car. One time though in one of the lessons, he tapped into a problem I always had as part of my personality but didn't know existed. Namely very poor and habitual self talk. I always tried to play golf well but never did. I kept playing. When I started listening to Tony I realized that the things I said to myself after hitting a bad shot were horrible things. Things I would never say to a friend after he or she hit a bad shot thinking that it would hurt their feelings and their game. I started positive talk like "Great shot, you're improving nicely" etc, the kind of idea Tony was suggesting in one of his lessons. I did this after every time I tried to hit the ball, and patting myself on the back (figuratively of course) after an attempt. I even encouraged myself after a bad hit rather than saying in the old way "You stink" etc. etc. I started to improve shot making very much. Starting hitting really quality shots with the methods Jack Nicklaus taught in his tape "Golf my way". Without Tony, even with the Nicklaus methods I would have gotten nowhere. But I'll always be thankful to Tony, not for helping me improve at golf only, but for identifying a real weakness in my entire life, outside of golf that was really holding me back. I wasn't successful with the course but that one small thing changed my life dramatically and forever and I still practice it today. I think Tony is a true genius of our time
Believe in yourself.
Do what you love.
Don't allow others to tell you who you have to be.
Meditate & visualize daily.
Priority: inner peace and mental health.
I love this! This is why I created affirmation cards so people can visualize themselves being successful even when they consciously don't believe it (yet). I have used visualization to manifest a lot of amazing things. It is so powerful!
Visualization is a powerful tool however most people are emotional thinkers, not visual. To incorporate visualization into our thought process takes a lot of practice & getting use to. If not done properly could result into abnormal thinking (Mental Disorder)
