Gain A Positive Attitude Through Visualization by Instructor Ma
You have two options every morning… Either to be positive or to be negative… Yes, it is a choice, and the outcome of your day -and eventually of your life- depends on this choice, day in and day out. Which one did you choose today?
Many people are using visualization to achieve great things.
Therapists all over the world are teaching visualization to their clients. Many books have been written on the topic, and you can even purchase visualization audio and video tapes.
This is all because visualization works -and it can work to build a positive attitude too.
Visualization is the process of relaxing and using your imagination. The point is to see yourself where you want to be, doing what you want to do. But there is more to it than that.
Visualization is used in many ways. It can be used to reach goals. Instead of imagining yourself where you want to be, doing what you want to do, you can imagine yourself taking the necessary steps to get there. You can use visualization for motivation to take those steps by visualizing the result. The world’s greatest martial arts masters have used this technique to achieve their extraordinary skills.
Visualization is also used to relieve stress, pain, and anxiety. It is used in weight loss programs and addiction programs. It has been used to improve relationships. Visualization has been proven to be effective for a wide variety of problems over and over again.
To practice it, simply find a quiet place where you can sit comfortably and close your eyes. See yourself how you need to see yourself for the visualization exercise, and mastery of your martial arts skills. Try to make it as real as possible in your mind.
Use all five senses -sound, smell, taste, sight, and touch. If you have problems visualizing without help, make audio tapes that will lead you through it, or purchase audio tapes that are designed to aid visualization.
Visualization can be used directly to create a positive attitude by imagining yourself facing a difficult situation or problem with a positive attitude and seeing the actions and reactions of other people in your mind.
If nothing else, this will give you the incentive to try it out -just to see if people will act or react as you envisioned, they would!
