When there is any event occurring or happening soon, we will often visualize, imagine or picture how is it going to happen and normally we will think of the worst possible scenario first just to prepare for the worst. For instances, when we are having a presentation for our client, we will imagine what if our client hates it. Before receiving a result after an exam, we will also have an imagination of what if we fail. Though it is fine to have a back up plan if things doesn’t go the way you plan.
However, we already set a mental picture of defeat, failures and disappointment before the situation even starts. We already have been defeated in our mind and our expectation bar has been set low. However, its important to know that everything starts with our mind, the way we picture things in our brain will normally translate into the reality. Bruce Lee once said, ‘What I think, I become’, if we keep dwelling on thoughts of defeat, then defeat will eventually will become a reality in our life.
Losers visualize the penalties of failures. Winners visualize the reward of success.William S. Gilbert
Therefore, if we keep picturing victory and success in our mind, something good is stirring up and turning into our favour. See yourself right now as being healthy, happy, prosperous and blessed. Picture yourself accomplishing your dreams and goals. The thing is there will still be setbacks and disappointment in the process of reaching your dreams. However, keep on picturing your victory and chase towards that dream, there will soon come the day of victory you have always pictured about.
If you want to reach a goal, you must first see the reaching in your mind before you actually arrive at your goal.Zig ZIglar
