Visualization is a common sense success strategy that can keep you motivated and focused to achieve your goals throughout the day. As I’ve often said, “Visualize and it will materialize.”

Visualization is the applying of your given gift of imagination to your faith and confidence. You can use it to discover ways to work through tough times, to rise above your problems and see the possibilities of a solution. It can also be used in the process of healing or to manifest a particular desire.

Thinking Positive and Vision Boards

I know, I know, you think vision boards are weird, strange, new age-y or just plain stupid and a waste of time.  I’m here to say – not so much.  Vision boards are just a concrete tangible form of visualization and visualization techniques have been used for many years.  Professional athletes frequently use visualization techniques to improve their performance, as do many stage/screen performers, musicians and business people.  A vision board is merely a pictorial  representation of our wants and our goals.

Why am I bringing this up now?  It’s simple, really.  I’ve made several vision boards, on paper, on a bulletin board, and even a video set to music.  The other day I looked at my vision board and realized that I’d actually achieved quite a few of the wants/goals that I’d put on there.  Granted, I don’t have the bazillions of dollars that I want, or the McMansion of my dreams, but  when i look back at all the things I wanted that I did get, I know those other things are coming.

Why not make a vision board of your own?  It’s not hard, plus it’s a chance to play with scissors and glue and even glitter if that’s what makes you happy.  Take a few minutes, flip through some magazines and find some pictures that represent YOUR goals.  Put them on a piece of poster board, or a bulletin board and focus on them.  Really focus!  See your self with that new car, or the camera, or the super duper computer, and KNOW and BELIEVE that it’s going to come to you, because if you believe it, it will.

Speed Your Success

To speed your success, twice a day form a clear mental picture for two minutes of the one thing you want; and tell yourself it’s already yours. Imagine it is.

It’s the secret of the ages, and there have been countless books written on the subject.  Professional athletes do it, successful businessmen and women do it.  People all over the world are doing it.  But what is it?  It, is visualization.  It’s not some new age secret, nor is it some metaphysical occult thing.  There are references to visualizing in the bible.

Simply put, visualizing is seeing yourself having, or obtaining what you want, seeing yourself living the life you want.  It’s focusing on a goal.  Professional athletes practice this skill all the time.  They see themselves hitting the home run, but not just seeing the ball sail out of the park. They’ll see themselves standing at the plate, taking their stance, waiting for the perfect pitch, swinging and connecting with the ball – over and over again.

If it’s good enough for professional athletes, it’s good enough for you and me.  Take a few minutes every day and focus – focus on something you want so much.  See yourself having it.  A few minutes a day.  You can do it – see it, visualize it, and make it yours


The Power of Visualization

The Power of Visualization

by  via The Daily Love

Hi TDL world!!  We believe in change and that dreams come true!  In last week’s blog we talked about The Power of Visualization and how we believe that you can alter your circumstances through positive thoughts and visualization.  This week we want to challenge you to visualize beyond just your mind and create a vision board!

Why a vision board? It helps you set your intention and goals – both long and short term.  It also keeps you accountable and focused!

What is a vision board?  Basically it’s a simple poster or bulletin board filled with a collage of images, words and pictures of what goals you have in life.  You can draw the images, tear photos from magazines or find Google images.  For example, we like to fill our board with words that are related to actions that will make our goals successful, become a better friend or daughter, a photo of a medal that will encourage us to train harder, images of places we’d like to travel or adventures we want to tackle and quotes that encourage healthy happy living.

Your vision and dreams are endless and it’s up to you!  Grab a board and start collecting photos, phrases and items that represent your goals.  Once you’ve created the board, place it somewhere you spend a lot of time, so you remain aware and reminded throughout the day of your goals.  Next, we also want you to share it with us and all our TDL friends on our Facebook page by tagging Tone It Up  & The Daily Love !  This is a fun way to stay accountable and support each other in reaching the stars!

“Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own.” – Robert Collier

We love you all!!

Your trainers,
