💡 Discover How To Attract Success With Mind Power

Not sure if you noticed but ...

All top performers, regardless of profession, know the importance of picturing themselves succeeding in their minds before they actually do in reality. The power of visualization is extremely effective when harnessed and used correctly.

Consider these three examples:

  • Lindsey Vonn one of the most successful female skiers in history says visualizing the run before she does it gives her a competitive advantage on the course.

  • Michael Jordan always took the last shot in his mind before he ever took one in real life.

  • Oprah Winfrey who pulled herself up from poverty to become one of the wealthiest women in the world preaches the words “Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.”

These top performers, among many others, have mastered the technique of positive visualization and openly credit it as a success tactic.

When you think of a big goal or dream that you want to achieve, it’s natural to think of all of the obstacles that will come your way. The problem is far too often we allow these obstacles to become so big in our minds that it inhibits us from moving forward. This is when many become satisfied with mediocrity.

Don’t let this be you. Rather than creating larger-than-life barriers in your mind and dwelling on everything that will hold you back, envision yourself victorious.

What will it take? What sacrifices will you make? How can you handle any obstacles and still have enough to make it to the finish line?

The key is to make your positive vision stronger than anything that can set you back.

The truth is, if you can’t picture yourself achieving a goal, chances are you won’t. The more vivid you can get, the better it will work for you. 

Start thinking of your personal goals in life. Spend about 10 to 15 minutes daily picturing yourself achieving each one.

Tell your brain your plan in a thousand words, and it gets bored mid-way and wants to go to sleep. But draw it a picture, and it will respond with much deeper interest and attention.

Get as detailed as possible. Picture what you will do once your goal is reached. How amazing does it feel? How will this change the course of your life? Remember, the little details increase the likelihood of the big picture.

You don’t need to spend endless hours. Simply get in the habit of putting together a positive vision into your everyday life. Visualize yourself succeeding, achieving every goal, completing every task. See what it does for you and how it makes you feel. 

🧰 5 Techniques to Stop Overthinking Mistakes

People who place a high value on perfectionism or who score highly on perfectionism traits are also likely to engage in rumination.

Some perfectionists are especially concerned with evaluation, set unattainable goals, and experience self-doubt and low confidence. When perfectionists ‘fail’ at a task, they may tend to ruminate over their mistakes, which in turn heightens the negative feelings that they experience.

To counteract ruminating about past mistakes, instead, engage in the following behaviors:

  • Recognize that your self-worth is not contingent on your successes or failures.

  • Practice self-compassion:

    • Be kind to yourself.

    • Accept yourself unconditionally.

    • Recognize that your failures make you human and allow you to connect with other people.

    • Engage in mindfulness when you realize that you are being judgmental or negative about yourself.

🎧 What I'm listening to:

Amanda Knox on The Joe Rogan Experience.

A story of mental strength, resilience, celebrating little wins, and the ability to see light despite the darkness.

I encourage you to consider doing something new this weekend — something you’ve never done or something you’ve always wanted to do.

Thank you for your presence and have a wonderful weekend ahead.
