Motivational Mondays

MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY โ€“ STEP 7: Visualisations

You often hear that imagining success helps you get motivated ๐Ÿ’ช. Research shows though that it is not imagining success that helps but visualisation of process so imagining the path that takes you to your goal ๐Ÿ˜‰. This way you practice in your mind the difficult path that awaits you and it helps you get ready for its all steps.
:::
What works best on you? A positive ending and what happens when you reach the goal ๐Ÿ‘ or negative outcome and what happens if you donโ€™t reach it ๐Ÿ‘Ž?
:::
โžก๏ธ If positive visualisation is for you (like me ๐Ÿ™ƒ) imagine yourself working hard, reaching next steps towards your goal ๐Ÿ“ˆ. Imagine yourself with a strong will and e.g. staying home to work on your business, or whatever your goal is, instead of going to a party ๐Ÿ˜‰. Imagine yourself making smart decisions like getting up 30min earlier in order to workout before work or to meditate ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ to begin a new day with a calm mind. Imagine how you feel having picked those wise decisions ๐Ÿค”
:::
Now imagine yourself at the end of the line, youโ€™ve reached your goal! ๐Ÿ… Imagine your friends & family congratulating you on a fullfiled dream, imagine yourself giving some interview to a newspaper on how you managed to get where you are! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
So powerful! I usually am so pumped up after such visualisations!
:::
โžก๏ธ If you feel more motivated seeing negative outcome and what happens when you donโ€™t succeed imagine yourself e.g. fatter, not earning as much as youโ€™d want and not being able to e.g. give your kids everything youโ€™d want to.
Imagine that your family and friends tell you that your laziness problem becomes more and more serious. You walk into a party and people look at you and gossip. Now imagine how you can avoid those situations. You work hard. You put your goals first. See with your imagination getting an award.
:::
โžก๏ธ Now think of your visualisations.
Decide whether you are more sensitive to punishments ๐Ÿ‘Ž or to rewards ๐Ÿ‘.
Imagine the proces taking you to your goal– make sure to imagine specific situations.
Write your visualisation down ๐Ÿ–Š
