Visualization

Visualization has a long and controversial background. Most of the controversy comes from those who feel it is an ethereal process. That to get better one has to do.

If you step back a moment and think about where the "doing" comes from then you begin to see where the benefit comes from. The "doing" comes from the thoughts in the mind and through a series of neurological impulses you execute the thought.

Many studies, mostly sports related, have shown marked increases in performance from visualization. Free throws are the best example, where the practice group was trumped by the visualization group in increased performance.

This is but one tiny aspect of the mind being optimized.

So the question is, how do you see yourself in the future? What little things, done today, will become a huge influence for the future? A 30 minute walk every other day? Not a big thing, but it will impact your quality of life everyday from now on. Reading a book. Exercise.

The possibilities are endless. You just need to see the future the way you want it to play out.
