We all have goals we want to achieve. Lose more weight, earn more money,or maybe just to feel more at peace with everything around us.
Setting goals is the first, crucial,step. It’s also the easiest step. Acheiving them is a whole other ball game.
On our journey to achieve our goals, we face many challenges which could derail us. Rather then facing our challenges blindly, we should equip ourselves with techniques, tips and tricks used by the professionals in the game of goal achieving.
Having an eagle eye’s vision, with deep details of the big picture is a very important ingredient in achieving the right goals.
In this article i would like to share my 3 step visualisation technique, which is a great way to start the day.
Step 1: Be crystal clear with your goals
If you do not know where you want to end up, you can’t imagine it.
Be as clear and specific as humanly possible, about where you want to end up, or u may get lost.
If you want to flaunt a perfect beach body, know the kind of swim wear you will be wearing with it.
If you want to drive through the city in your dream car, know the colour of your car and how detailed the interior of the car will be.
All right, these may be exampls of some pretty superficial goals in life, but we all have them don’t we.
The point is to be as specific and clear with your goals as you can.
So clear that when you talk to somebody else about your goals, a 4k UHD image is painted in their minds.
Step 2: Get in the zone!!!
Once you are crystal clear about where you want to be. Think about the steps it takes to get there. The work you will need to put in.
Run through the process of getting to your goals.
Visualise the actions required to reach your goal.
Focus on completing each of the steps you need to achieve your goal.
You can try this, the next time you hit the gym.
Before actually attempting the exercise, visualise it. Feel your muscles going through the movements, maintaining a deep focus.
You will notice a substantial difference in performance when you are actually performing the exercise.
This can be used for a bunch of other stuff…preparing to give a speech, preparing for an interview or just preparing for the day.
Step 3: Feel the victory
Feel like a champion.
Imagine yourself achieving your goals.
Embrace the sensations and emotions, when its all said and done, and you are basking in victory.
This will give you a deeper connection with your goals.
When you actually know and understand what it will feel like to achieve something, you work alot harder for it.
Humans have been known as seekers for instant gratification. If victory is not NOW, victory is alot less likely.
When we feel the victory, although its not the real thing itself, we get a whiff of it. Feels gratifying at that very moment, while making us hunger for more.
A great addition to your morning routine…
This 3 step visualisation technique is a great way to start the day. Use it in the morning.
1) Be clear of your goals for the day.
2)Visualise the processes that has to be done for the day.
3)Visualise the end of that successfull day.
Visualisation is not a magical wizard’s spell, that will move mountains.
It is a very helpful supplemental tool in preparing ourselves for whats ahead while staying focused and motivated when we experience obstacles or setbacks.
