You Will Need
- Recording device
- Journal (optional)
Get away from distractions and people to clear your head. You should feel safe enough to relax or sleep.
Focus on the subject
Focus inwardly on what you want to change, whether a personal problem, an injury, or stress relief. Let your thoughts wander.
Breathe deeply to slow down and unclutter your mind. Visualize everything you seek in fine detail and put yourself in the picture, in control of your destiny.
State your intention
State your intention aloud and choose only one thing at a time. Keep it simple and act as if what you want has already arrived or happened.
Express genuine gratitude for what you have and what you want to bring to yourself. Practice being at peace with your life.
Record self talk
Record your monologue to program your thinking and stay focused on what you desire. Play the recording whenever you need a reminder or an emotional boost.
Practice visualizing, mentally playing out how you will perform in activities, tests, or social situations just before you have to act. See yourself and mentally write the script to make things happen.
Measure your progress
Measure your progress after several weeks of visualizing your goals. Set goals to improve and focus your thinking to be in sync with your accomplishments.
