How To Visualize Your Goal

By: Matt Furey
Best Selling Author and Self-Made Millionaire

Had a lot of questions after writing the the article entitled, "How Many Goals Should You Visualize at Once?"

This one comes from Brad. Let's take a look:

Hello Matt,

Crucial Question...when I am visualizing my goal and I am in the theatre of the mind:

1) Should I be watching myself in the scene (from outside myself) as a 3rd person onlooker or should I be visualizing as if looking through my own eyes? This one has stumped me for a long time....

2) Does the entire visualization sequence have to be one long movie or can I do the "movie trailer" method and cut from one scene to another. The second method evokes more emotion for me?

M.F.: Brad, to answer question number one, when you visualize your goal, you can do so both ways that you descibed. The 3rd person method is more of the "observer" method - wherein you are watching yourself watching yourself. I do think, however, that you'll get more value out of simply watching yourself through "your own eyes." Bear in mind that the "observer" is always watching anyway, so even when looking through your own eyes, you can still be conscious of yourself and what you're doing.

Re. question number two, again, both ways are okay. But - here's the kicker: Emotion is the stick you should measure yourself by. In Dr. Maltz' teachings he repeatedly stressed the importance that feeling strong positive emotion plays in making your visualization more effective. Because you have said that the second method "evokes more emotion" - then the choice is easy. Use that one. Good luck.

Dr. Maltz coined the phrase "Theatre of the Mind" to represent "a place" you can mentally go to in order to strengthen your self-image. The self- image is the internal guidance system that tells you what you can and cannot have out of life.

How is your self-image strengthened? It is strengthened by using your creative imagination in the "Theatre of the Mind."

"Imagination is the elixir of life," said P.T. Barnum. And he was right.

The more you imagine your life the way you want it to be - the quicker and faster you bring what you have imagined into reality.

The more you use your creative imagination, the more you will know the meaning of the saying, "What You Want, Wants You."
