All top athletic performers, regardless of profession, know the importance of picturing themselves succeeding in their minds before they actually do in reality.
What has been able to translate over to the business arena from athletics is the power of visualization. It is extremely effective when harnessed and used correctly.
As a coach, guiding clients with visualization can improve performance, increase results and support them to push through, even the toughest of setbacks.
Consider these three examples:
- Boxing legend Muhammad Ali was always stressing the importance of seeing himself victorious long before the actual fight.
- As a struggling young actor, Jim Carrey used to picture himself being the greatest actor in the world.
- Michael Jordan always took the last shot in his mind before he ever took one in real life.
This is a powerful tool to practice and teach as a performance coach.
Check out this article from Entrepreneur.com from Matt Mayberry, Speaker, and Maximum Performance Strategist, that highlights how he harnessed the power of visualization on and off the field.
