In my last blog I talked to you about the power of intention and how it helps you create what you want. Today I am going to introduce you to the brother of Intention, and that is visualization. I receiveda mail from Brain Tracy this week, and after I read it I knew I needed to use it in my next post to more clearly expose the power of intention.
If you did not read my post about the power of intention, read that also and you will understand why I say visualization is the brother of the power of intention.
Did you know that there are four parts of visualization that you can learn and practice to ensure that you use this incredible power to its best advantage all the days of your life?
The first aspect of visualization is frequency, the number of times that you visualize a particular goal as achieved of yourself performing in an excellent way in a particular event or circumstance. The more frequently you repeat a clear mental picture of your very best performance or result, the more rapidly it will appear as part of your reality.
The second element of visualization is the duration of the mental image, the length of time that you can hold the picture in your mind each time you replay it. When you deeply relax, you can often hold a mental picture of yourself performing at your best for several seconds, and even several minutes. The longer you can hold your mental picture, the more deeply it will be impressed into your subconscious mind and the more rapidly it will express itself in your subsequent performance.
The third element of visualization is vividness. There is a direct relationship between how clearly you can see your desired goal or result in your mind and how quickly it comes into your reality. This element of visualization is what explains the powers of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Correspondence. The vividness of your desire directly determines how quickly it materializes in the world around you. Here is an interesting point. When you set a new goal for yourself, your image or picture of this goal will usually be vague and fuzzy. But the more often you write it, review it, and repeat it mentally, the clearer it becomes for you. Eventually, it will become crystal clear. At that point, the goal will suddenly appear in your world exactly as you imagined it.
The fourth element of visualization is intensity, theamount of emotion that you attach to your visual image. In reality, this is the most important and powerful part of the visualization process. Sometimes, if your emotion is intense enough and your visual image is clear enough, your goal will immediately come true.
Of course, the elements of frequency, duration, vividness, and intensity can help you or hurt you. Like nature, the power of visualization is neutral. Like a two-edged sword, it can cut in either direction. It can either make you a success or make you a failure. Visualization brings you whatever you vividly and intensely imagine, whether good or bad.
Continually feed your mind with clear, exciting, emotional pictures. Remember, your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.
To your success in goal setting, Brain Tracy .
In my last blog I showed you that I practice what I preach, and with what Brain says here, I can also tell you about something that happened this past week.
Steve and I are going to become part of CEO Space where Successful entrepreneurs come together with up and coming entrepreneurs, such as ourselves, to mentor, advise, teach, share ideas, invest and work together with them in whatever necessary to help put them on the road to success.
We will attend a huge forum in December where we will meet these mentors, investors and all the people who will be able to help us effectively launch the Gratitude Game into the world.
We are already in the process of creating Opus Games Ltd.,LLC as our corporate entity and are beginning to reach out to interested investors. I have begun visualizing the fact that we are receiving every penny we need to attend the forum and launch the product, and also meditating an average of two times a day. Steve is doing the same thing, and even before officially beginning our capital investment program, we have already received verbal commitments for $5000 ! Our goal is $20,000 by the first of December, so we are already a quarter of the way there!
If you are new to my blog and don’t know about “gratitude!” the game, just go to the menu bar Gratitude Game, and please be so kind as to leave us a comment of what you think after you have visited the website.
Thanks you for reading my blog, and thank you for your great comments that you have submitted about this post.
