Have you ever felt overwhelmed with accomplishing your large goals? Well, perhaps you have been concentrating on your body and not your mind. The technique of visualization has been found to improve confidence and prepare the nervous system to perform at optimal levels. This simple technique can strengthen the connection between your body and mind allowing you to achieve things you never thought possible. Here's the technique:
•Ø Relax. Set a specific time to close your eyes and breathe slowly and deeply. Make sure to choose an optimum place, like a comfortable chair in a quiet corner. Take about a half hour to consciously relax each of your body parts starting with your toes and working your way up to your head.
•Ø Concentrate on a success. Remember an occasion when you experienced great success and then think how confident and happy you felt.
•Ø Focus on a success associated with the specific action you are trying to achieve. Visualize the perfect scenario. If you want to improve your basketball game, picture the ball going through the hoop again and again. If you are trying to improve your ability to speak in public, picture the audience reacting with applause as you finish a wonderful speech. For an overall feeling of confidence flash back to your previous successes.
•Ø Have positive expectations. Always think of yourself exuding confidence while carrying out your desires with perfection.
•Ø Repeat your visualization. For maximum results, visualize your success at least twice each day.
