So come on Jeff, tell us how we can use this phenomenon to make ourselves a fortune?
Choose a particular skill or area where you wish to improve, or simply choose one of your goals. You do have goals don't you? Spend at least 5 minutes everyday relaxing in a quiet place, visualising yourself completing your task or goal. That's all it takes, but you must do it regularly.
One of reasons why this technique is so successful, is that you'll normally always imagine yourself being successful in whatever you choose to think about. I mean, why would you want to imagine yourself failing or doing something badly? Doing things correctly time after time is a necessity in any learning process, and is a tremendous confidence builder.
When you come to perform your chosen task in reality, your subconscious mind will be expecting you to perform it perfectly, as you have many times before in your imagination. You'll automatically have confidence of an expert.
An added bonus is that while your imagining your new found successes, you'll also be building a strong positive mental attitude. It's an inescapable fact that you become what you think about. So, if you think you're going to fail all time, then as sure as eggs are eggs you will.
You may think this idea sounds totally foolish, but don't dismiss it out of hand. With a little creative thought you can employ this technique to improve your performance in many business skills and help you achieve your goals. You do have goals don't you?
I'm not suggesting that visualisation can replace traditional practice and experience. However, when used in conjunction with it, you can rapidly accelerate your progress and success. I've used this technique myself and am convinced it makes a difference. It could seriously make you a fortune. Go on, have some fun and give it a try!
