Visualize High Performance

This meditation will guide you through a process of visualizing high performance as a way to build the mental habits of success.

Hello and welcome to today's meditation on visualizing success. As the saying goes, if you can see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand. Success achieved out there in the world, starts with belief and clarity within your own self. One way to arrive at this clarity is through the process of visualization. Visualization is a powerful tool used by many successful people across the globe.

Elite athletes, for example, not only focus on their physical training, but also their mental training. They train to see themselves winning the race, scoring the goal, or making the run in their mind over and over and over again before doing it in real life. Many successful business people say that at some point in their lives, they could clearly see themselves creating a business in their space or playing a significant role in their field. Visualization allows you to mentally and emotionally prepare for a desired outcome. So let's begin this reflective practice.

In coming to this practice, I'd invite you to first become aware of your posture. Perhaps establishing the way you're sitting or standing, or even lying down in a way that embodies a quality of alertness, awakeness. But at the same time, is relaxed, comfortable, at ease. Becoming aware of your body in this way. And also becoming aware of your breath.

The in-breaths and the out-breaths. Inhalations and the exhalations. This full cycle of breathing. Connecting with the breath in this moment as a way to ground yourself and become fully present and focused as we begin this visualization. Visualization tends to be easier with your eyes closed.

So allowing the eyes to gently close or simply softening the visual field, if that's more comfortable. Perhaps gazing downward and softening your focus. And now I want to invite you to consider and to visualize the following. If everything in my life or work, starting today, meets or exceeds my most optimistic expectations, what will my life or work look like a year from now? If everything in my life or work, starting today, meets or exceeds my most optimistic expectations, what will my life or work look like a year from now? If you like, you can also extend that to two years or three or five, whatever works best for you. But the reflection is, if everything in my life for work, starting today, meets or exceeds my most optimistic expectations, what will my life or work look like a year from now? Or two or three or five? Or whatever amount of time suits you.

But for now, let's go with a year. See yourself a year from now, or however long you believe you'll need. See yourself being successful in all those domains which you consider important. Now zoom in closer. Seeing with vividness.

Where are you? What are you doing? Who is with you? What have you accomplished or achieved? It's important to visualize these wonderful outcomes as if they've already happened. Our hearts and minds will often live the future. We are expecting according to neuroscientists, Regina poly, as our minds and bodies set in motion, quote, the perceptions, behaviors, emotions, physiological responses, and interpersonal ways of relating that best fit with what is predict. So predict for yourself success if your life or work, starting today, meets or exceeds your most optimistic expectations. So with that in mind, let's reflect again.

If everything in my life or work, starting today, meets or exceeds my most optimistic expectations, what will my life or work be like a year from now? Or however long you think you will need to be successful. And now visualizing that outcome as if it's already happened. How does it feel to be living this successful life? Notice how you feel in your body as you do this. Deepen into your experience as you visualize this. Feeling, the energy of this successful outcome flow through you in this moment.

Expand now this image of success in your mind's eye. Expand it further. Notice as well now, the nature and quality of your relationships with others. How does it feel to be connected with others in this state of success? Next, expanding the image further in your mind's eye. What's your relationship with your environment? Take note of your surroundings.

What's it like to be in this place, in this space in which your life and work has met or exceeded your most optimistic expectations? And one last time expanding the image in your mind's eye one step further. What's your relationship to the world? If your life or work, starting today, meets or exceeds your most optimistic expectations, how are you in the world? And what's your relationship to the world in which you're inhabiting in this state of success? And now as you come back to yourself, as you are in this moment, in this time and place, I'd invite you to take a moment to signal gratitude for the success you've already envisioned in your mind's eye. Offering gratitude for the success that you envision for yourself. Holding all of these possibilities in your mind and heart, let's now begin to end this practice. I'd invite you to take now three slightly deeper breaths at your own pace.

Connecting with the breath. Connecting with the felt sense of your body. And finally connecting with the possibilities that you have just envisioned. That's our meditation on visualizing success. Thank you for your attention and thank you for your practice.
