Visualization Effectiveness

Many things can be more effective when individuals use all their senses; especially the senses that use eyes, ears, nose, touch, and sometimes taste. The same is true of active mental picturing. Ask yourself:

  1. Can I see a picture in my mind’s eye of what I want to accomplish?
  2. Can I hear my internal self-talk about what I want to accomplish or imagine myself explaining it to someone else?
  3. Is there anything to smell about what I want to accomplish? If yes, what it is?
  4. Can I physically touch what I want to accomplish?
  5. Can I taste what I want to accomplish, literally or metaphorically?

The more senses you involve in your visualizing practice, the more likely it is to be effective. Part 2 tomorrow.
