Think about this for a moment; you can’t set a goal unless you can visualize it first. If you don’t know where you want to be, how can you get yourself there? Unfortunately, a problem many people make when visualizing their future is all the mistakes they can make along the way. Yes, it’s essential to be realistic and cautious, but to reach your end goal, you need to picture what you want to happen instead of imagining how hard it will be to get there or its obstacles.
Visualization isn’t challenging to do as all you need to do is sit there and visualize yourself in the position you want to be in. Do you want to lose weight? Visualize what you would look like if you spent time at the gym. See yourself in your dream jobs? Take the necessary steps and obtain an education. Do you have a job interview coming up? Don’t focus on making awkward mistakes, visualize yourself confidently nailing the interview.
If you’re having issues with visualizing your goals, you don’t have to start with big life-changing goals. You can make smaller goals to help build your confidence. Visualize how happy you would be if you cleaned the kitchen like you’ve been planning to. Visualize yourself going to the gym for the first time. Imagine everything you can, don’t just see yourself at the gym. Imagine the sound, the smell, the touch of the weights in your hands. Once you build your confidence with small victories, you can start working your way up to bigger goals.
If you’re having trouble visualizing, then try to find an image of something similar you can use as your desktop wallpaper. Could you put it on your phone’s lock screen? Put it up on your visualization board. Visualizing to accomplishing your goals is one of the best ways to see them come to fruition. The more you do it, the more you’ll accomplish, and the more you can finally be in the place you’ve dreamt about for so long.
