Here comes the power of visualization!!!
You are already crafting a picture in your mind that you have fulfilled your goals, which lifts your mood. Such imagination helps you turn dreams and goals into reality and reduces fear and anxiety. Because you’re aligning your current mental state with the reality of having already achieved the goal.
Have you adopted the value mindset?
4. See and feel your vision every day
You will be glad to know that visualization is scientifically proven. Visualizing an action stimulates the same brain regions that are stimulated when we actually perform that same action.
Now onwards, spend some time to visualize the future you’re creating, and then incorporate this into your daily practices.
It’s like a meditation where you can incorporate anything in your visualization – What would be your dream job? In what way you are adding value in the lives of other people? What kind of social life you’re maintaining? How your business conference would look like? How does your new average day look like?
At the end of the day, sit and analyze as to which parts of your day are matched with the value-based future that you’re creating.
Eventually, you will tend to live more in the present moment. Over time, the future you want to create and the present will be the one and the same. And this relates to mindfulness.
5. Practise mindfulness
Mindfulness in Buddhism is about being intensely aware of what you’re feeling in the moment, without judgment.
Setting goals, missing deadlines or messing up with plans creates stress, irritation, and aggression. And the gap between the future you are trying to create and the present you are living increases.
With goal mindset, your entire focus is on what you need to achieve to be happy. But, with a value mindset and power of visualization, you enter the state of already being there. So, you no more focus on what you don’t have.
Practice mindfulness, live the moment, notice what you have, all the right things in your life – and be grateful to all the simple, little things that make you happy.
Using this approach, you can relax your body and mind. Visualize your inner self each day and make choices based on “who you are” instead of the actions that should be taken to achieve specific results.
