Did you hear about the power of pre-visualization? It’s huge, what ever you want to achieve you can more easily if you use this simple technique. Want to be skinny? Close your eyes for a minute and picture yourself. How do you look? Are you fat or skinny in your mind’s eye?
Sports psychologists talk a lot about pre-visualization. Before you throw your pitch, before you shoot your free-throw, before you hit your tee shot, you visualize it first. The same idea is used in career tests used by universities, they offer potential students career tests that allow people to visualize themselves as a doctor, engineer etc.
This act of pre-visualization causes your body to believe that it’s already successfully completed the task. Through consistent practice and with a repeatable routine, athletes commonly improve their performance percentages.
As someone struggling with their lack of confidence, the ability to see yourself as already accomplished individual will help in your overall strategy.
Don’t picture yourself as you are. Picture yourself at your ideal job and begin to get comfortable with that and use it as motivation.
I also use this method in fitness. I officially started working out on May 1st. I’m stronger than ever, healthier, and am burning fat. I’ve lost 12 pounds and my body fat % has dropped by 10 points.
