Visualisation or mental imagery is a learning technique that has been proven to be extraordinarily successful when used to focus on specific objectives. Essentially, the human mind has difficulty seeing the difference between an image of an outcome and the actual outcome. Examples of this can be seen when we look at the training and conditioning of athletes for example, who have used visualisation and mental imagery to increase the potential for a successful outcome to their training and competitive goals and aspirations.
Adopting visualisation techniques to make the mind believe that the successful result has already been achieved enables both the brain and body to become responsive and conditioned to that particular outcome or result.
Thousands of self-development authors, entrepreneurs and successful people have championed the power of visualisation in attaining goals and outcomes.
If you’re running your own business, using visualisation and mental imagery techniques can significantly improve day to day decision-making as well as the overall medium and longer term direction of the business. Being able to visualise in your mind what your business looks like over a longer period of time can really help to move every decision you make towards that vision.
Imagine you are 100% committed to your business. Imagine becoming that focused on the result of your business that you become obsessive about every aspect and about every detail. Imagine being asked to stand in front of 100 people and asking them to close their eyes, imagine asking them to see your business based on what you can see.
