I’ll admit it…
I have honestly thought that the idea of visualizing things and thinking things into existence was a bunch of hogwash.
I’m a total realist (or pessimist as my husband would say 🤣), so the idea of thinking outside the box is super tough for me.
More likely, you’ll find me thinking about what is going on right now and worrying about how to make things happen. It’s a huge part of my business to help others see and achieve the practical, back-end, detail part of achieving their business goals.
it wasn’t until I met with my therapist this past week that I started to realize the error of my ways.
You see, we have been working on my issues with focusing on anxiety and negative thinking, and the science behind how it affects your brain and body.
She began asking me what I wanted to see for myself, my business, my family, etc. during the coming year. I explained how I thought it was silly and almost “woo woo” to visualize things for the future.
She explained to me the science behind how focusing and visualizing (even meditating) on our minds and bodies. Ya’ll, I had NO IDEA that there was a positive effect and a changing of our brains when we visualize things. I was only aware of how working on retraining my brain to refocus after getting caught in negative thoughts helps me physiologically,
So, for those of you out there who might be a little skeptical about visualizing, I am encouraging you to consider trying it out.
You don’t have to go all woo-woo if it makes you uncomfortable! You can even write it out on paper, or make a vision board for the year, simply focus in a meditate on it for a few minutes…whatever works for you.
Happy visualizing! Here’s to a new year where you’re not denying yourself, your likes, and your dreams!
