And here we are with part III…
Hey, Chris here from The Chris Meredith Method Training Studio,
Today I wanna talk to you about the 3rd and final part to this mindset series of blogposts by covering a VERY important piece of the pie… VISUALIZATION.
Part I and part II can greatly improve the power of Visualization by putting your mind into the right gear to make positive or negative changes (make your visualizations positive for best results).
How To Visualize (PROPERLY):
Whe you hear the word visualization, you may think of and picture yourself thinner. What you need to do to make that more powerful, is to think of/picture all the supporting details that go along with it. For example: How much thinner do you picture your waistline? What size clothes will you be wearing? How will that make you feel? What will you do then, that you can’t/aren’t comfortable doing now? How much more energy will you have? How will you look at yourself in the mirror with a smile? Etc. Etc. You get the idea right?
If you’re looking to get in shape for a trip, wedding, class reunion, you can make your visualization more powerful by picturing how great it will feel to receive all the compliments from the people around you, or the sand beneath your toes (beach vaca:). This will all help you to put more emotion and conviction into your every step toward reaching your goals. Not to mention keep you on track every step of the way.
So, the visualization is a great help because you get motivated by seeing your dream coming to life. But there are a few more VERY important and powerful things you need to visualize to reach your goals in record time. Make a list of things that will help you reach your goal when you do them. And also make a list of things that will cause you setbacks. For example: Will eating that pastry with your 500+ calorie frapaccino help you trim inches? Not likely. So what you need to do is visualize yourself getting offered that combo of fat boosting pastry and beverage and then you say “no thanks” without regret. Visualize the next time you think about skipping your workout, and instead of wussing out, ya dig down deep and get into the gym, do your workout and feel great afterwards! These are just examples, but use your imagination and put some passion into your dreams, no matter how big or small they are.
This is your commitment to yourself and do something wonderful. Don’t cheat yourself out of something so great as achieving your every goal. You’ll be happier as a result and that just means that you’ll spread more happiness with the people around you.
Now go out there and get to it! If you have any questions about mindset and how it effects your health & fitness, please feel free to ask by leaving your comment at the end of this post, or you can always call me to schedule a FREE consultation.
Make it a great day!
