3 Powerful Visualization Techniques to Create a New You this New Year!

Visualization is a process in which you see things how you would like them to be.  Prior to their turn at bat, for example, some professional baseball players practice visualization by seeing themselves making great contact with the ball and having a successful at bat.  Actors picture a standing ovation after delivering an award winning performance.  Both have found this technique helpful for achieving results they previously thought impossible.

Effective visualization requires very specific detail.  It is not good enough to simply see yourself in your new house.  To help clarify this dream, define the location of the house.  Will you live on the beach?  In the mountains?  What color will the house be?  How many rooms will it have?  The clearer your picture the more real it will become.

There are many forms of visualization.  Here we will discuss three of the most powerful techniques to help you achieve remarkable results in your life, simply by seeing them, in vivid detail, beforehand.

1.  The Mental Movie

If you were to make a movie of your life, what would it be like?  In this technique you act as the director of your life story and everything is possible.  You create the scenery, the plot and the characters.  You become the main character and every detail is up to you.

2.  The Obituary

How do you want to be remembered?  What do you want people to say about you at your funeral?

This technique allows you to write exactly what you want said when you are gone.  The script you will write will highlight your career, your family and your friends.  It will point out all your strong points and your successes.  Picture yourself any way you want, and use this technique to define what is really important to you.

3.  Letter to a Friend

Here you will write a letter to a friend, but instead of the usual format, you will project how you see yourself 5-10 years from now.  When you write, picture yourself as having already achieved everything you want to accomplish during that time period.  Be specific!

Regardless of the technique you choose, keep in mind these important details:

1. Find a quiet, comfortable place where you won’t be distracted

2. Breathe deeply

3. Concentrate on what you want and your breathing alone.  Let go of all additional thoughts.

4. Be very specific.  Picture yourself and everything around you exactly how you want it to be.  Give your picture color, texture, depth and clarity.

5. When finished, continue breathing and allow your vision to escape, knowing you can call on it again whenever necessary.

6. Repeat the process regularly and often.  As you continue to use visualization, you will find it easier and easier to create the positive pictures in your mind.

If you really want to see your results skyrocket, combine your newly developed visualization skills with the power to Manifest with your Imagination!


Hi Russ,

I came across some of your Youtube clips tonight, as well as your blog and website. Very professional looking. I linked you to my blog, as your content applied directly to one of the topics I was writing about.

Great blog layout as well. I will read some more of your content. Very interesting and inspirational.

Best Regards,

Hey Russ Great Post!

Clarity is key. I would also add emotion, not everyone can clearly see and image on the screen of their mind but can FEEL a very strong emotion. Just as powerful.

Visualization, or what I like to call “Mental Rehearsal” is a VERY powerful process that works wonders. 😉

Warm Regards
