Visualisation is a proven technique used by many successful people learn the skill of how to make it work for you here
New research from Oxford and Cambridge suggests that your ability to vividly imagine details about your desired future dramatically increases your energy and momentum, which leads, in turn, to constructive action. When our mind’s eye can picture exactly what our desired future looks like, it can orient itself in the direction of this vision. This is largely because the more vividly we can picture something, the more attainable it feels. This has been proven in numerous studies particularly in sport. For instance, in his study on everyday people, Guang Yue (an exercise psychologist from Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio), compared results of those who did physical exercises to the results of those who carried out virtual workouts in their heads. In the physical exercise group, finger abduction strength increased by 53%. In the group that did "mental contractions", their finger abduction strength increased by 35%. However, "the greatest gain (40%) was not achieved until 4 weeks after the training had ended" This demonstrates the mind's incredible power over the body and its muscles. It’s been found that mental practices can enhance motivation, increase confidence and self-efficacy, as well as improving motor performance, priming your brain for success, and increasing states of flow—all relevant to achieving your best life!
