The Power of Visualization for Achieving Your Goals

Professional athletes and other highly successful people use the power of visualization technique on a regular basis. Why? Results of a 20-year study of the effects of visualization on results revealed an amazing discovery. Humans see pictures on the screen of the mind when thoughts are being processed; i.e. when they think of things.

For example, if a person, let’s say, George, stopped doing what he was doing right now, closed his eyes and thought of his car. What would he see? Is it the word CAR that pops up on the screen of his mind or a visual image?

Mentally, here’s what is actually happening…

George is accessing a memory from his mind that was instilled while he was first learning what a “car” is. Then specifically, his present car popped up. He didn’t always know it was called a car.

Similarly, other humans associate names with images or other forms of stimuli as a way to refer back to them in the mind. And here’s an example of why this simple talent is so important.

Let’s go back to George for a moment. When he goes to find his car after he’s been at a shopping mall, all he is focusing on is finding the image that he has inside his head for his car. He quickly scans the parking lot and with lightning speed eliminates all other cars until he finds the familiar one that he is focused on.

With this example in mind, here is a behind-the-scenes look at how to use visualization to achieve any goal.

Visualize an outcome you want over and over again to build ‘cells of recognition’ in your memory bank, just like you may have had with a car or other learned object when you were younger. This serves in the following two ways.

First: you become consciously and acutely aware of everything that can help you achieve the visualized outcome that you desire. (Just like looking for a car). You quickly scan over anything that is not in tune with that image.

When you continuously focus on an image in your mind, every cell in your body is involved in that image and you vibrate and resonate with everything that is in harmony with that frequency both on a physical and non-physical level. This frequency moves you towards, and moves everything that is needed towards you, for the manifestation of the desired image.

Second: you impress an idea into the subconscious part of you, it eventually becomes ‘fixed’ and you automatically attract and move towards that which you desire.

The reason athletes practice visualization is because they want to condition their mind in such a way that the body automatically behaves the way they want it to without effort. It is the only way to become ‘unconsciously competent’.

The same is true for highly successful people. If they visualize the success they want over and over again, eventually their bodies will automatically do whatever it must to make the image a physical reality.

The outside world is a mirror image of the inside and hidden mental world. Unfortunately, very few people have really taken the time to learn this side of their personality. And that is unfortunate because this is the part that is so powerful.

To visualize is to direct unseen energy into an orderly vibration and that is what is needed to manifest desires of the inner self. Desires must first be created in thoughts and then they are created in ‘ real life’. Humans are the sum of what they think about and focus on most.

  1. Hi,

    Great info! Sometimes I find myself remembering an earlier incident in the day or an engram from a previous time in life and, as I am replaying this in my mind, I notice that I am experiencing the same bodily sensations that occurred at the time of the incident. If this was what I chose to be an unpleasant incident with matching unpleasant sensations then this visualization is not serving me well.

    When I catch myself in the act of negative visualization and realize the powerful impact of it, I try to replay it in my mind while creating a positive outcome of my choosing.

    By no means have I mastered this technique as of yet. Many times I catch myself AFTER the negative memory/visualization is complete. But, even then, I may replay the incident with a different outcome or create an entirely new visualization that is more in line with my intentions.
    Life is great!

  2. Hi Dean,
    The reason you feel the same way when you replay stuff in your mind is because the exact same chemicals are being relaesed in the brain as if the event was happening right now. That is how powerful the brain is and goes to show that that subconscious doesn’t know the difference between an imagined event or a real one.The more you visualize what you want, the faster the brain looks to make it happen in real life.

  4. Hi John!

    Thank you for the reply. I am somewhat new to blogging and it seemed to me that these were conversation starters for others to participate in. I am pleased that you take the time to be personally involved.

    I joined the Powerful Intentions community so I could surround myself with like-minded individuals and I now appreciate your site as well.

    Your last comment “The more you visualize what you want, the faster the brain looks to make it happen in real life.” is why I enjoy this interaction with those who make things happen in their lives. It’s like being in the soup with you. While participating in the converstion, I visualize my being a part of this thinking in a greater way and my intention is that my brain looks to make it happen in real life faster!

    With appreciation,
    Dean

    I loved this post! And I’m still learning how to navigate through this site, so I hope it goes through. I have always been one to use visualization, but since I lost my sight nearly eight years ago it became quite natural for me. What I’ve realized in the last while is how powerful the art of visualization truly is. I’m learning how to reach the fullness of my desires with my intentions through visualizing what I want and need. It’s truly amazing! I’m noticing even the littlest things every single day…thank you for all your amazing experiences and information and sharing them wit us.

  6. So what is happening when you visualize something frequently and often and it still doesn’t come to pass? I’ve been as specific as I can be with what I visualize, feel great about what I’m visualizing, took inspired action and still haven’t manifested what I want. :/

    One one hand, I’ve read you’re supposed to have feelings about what you want, and on the other I’ve heard one should be detached from it. This is what I’m struggling with the most.

    Hi John

    Thank you for all the fantastic information that you have supplied.

    I bought the DVD for the Secret and started putting into practise all the points in which I felt I needed work. Then I listend to you interview with Bill Harris and I thought, I would like to follow the same guidelines that you used. So I went and bought a Veld board and pinned my goal list on it & I put another goal list of mine just by my bed so that I can see this all the time.

    Please help me to understand that, I have been putting in such effort to follow through these principels which worked for me in the beginning, however now I am starting to get canellations and people not turning up for work etc;

    Do you maybe have any advice for me.?

  9. I totally relate to the comments made by Yvette adn Caryn. I too have been visualising and have made a list of goals and a dream board that I have up in the kitchen (believing the kitchen to be the most powerful manifestation room in the house) Realising that I have to be detached for the manifestation to occur I through visualisation I believed I have released my desires to the universe and have put myself in a postion of expectation. Now it seems that all is going backwards and I am struggling to get over numerous hurdles that appear daily. I mentally tell myself I can achieve my goals on a daily basis but now it has been so long waiting, I am beginning to wonder if it will happen and of course I keep telling myself it will but I am still waiting. Advice would be fantastic as it is a lonely feeling not being in the universal flow.

  10. Here is my 2 cents.
    Things don’t manifest according to our time table. Don’t hurry.

    Let me ask you ? Do you really love to have those that go in that board ? Rememer in the “THE SECRET” dvd one author said, you have to generate the feeling of having it now ( If you need furniture, go to a furniture store, look at it and make yourself feel the real happiness of having it ). This was told in the “SECRET”.
    So take some actions and really make yourself feel that actual happiness as if it was really there. Do this every now and then.
    Remeber the “SECRET” said, this universe responds to how you feel ( No just the goal ).

    Does this make sense ?
    When John dreamed of a house his mind and heart went into one particualr house which,from his heart he loved. He generated the feeling everytime he looked at it. So his goals manifested. He didn’t hurry.
    Hope this makes sense.

  11. Folks
    I am with you. I have similar questions.
    The “SECRET” works but the timing ???
    Just like you I have some pictures with
    me. I look at them daily. They will come
    but haven’t.
    In my personal experience, I have felt
    that the universe likes to fool me.
    Here is a fact: The otherday, I went to the
    park with my kids, saw a beautiful mountain
    bike. I stared at it for a few minutes. True,
    I really liked it but never was in my list.
    Besides I knew spending $150 was not worth.
    Then, Sunday came, I purchased the newspaper,
    I see this coupon for the same bike going
    at $50 at Toys’R'Us. Wow! I bought it.
    So then I didn’t have to feel about it
    think about it it just came with one
    feeling, so damn quick at an unbeatable
    price.

    On the other hand, the stuff in my list,
    I am waiting just like you…!
    Here is my 2 cents again:
    1. Don’t put pressure on yourself.
    2. Let time pass by.
    3. Fight your doubts. I see that some of
    you are just getting ready to give up.
    No! No! Now is not the time. Hang ON!
    4. Read the “SECRET” audible version
    (from audible.com ) In this, the original
    author shares more examples. There is
    more stuff than the DVD (4 hrs) organized
    under different topics- Great!
    Good Luck and thanks for sharing with us.

  12. Hi John,

    Great info. Please answer this for me. When visualizing myself in the desired outcome, should I see myself as a mirror image or the camera behind the wheel of the car image where all I would see is whatever is in front and to the sides of me? Thanks a bunch.

  14. In reply to Sharmaz and Yvette’s dilemma… for what it’s worth :-) …I have found that bumps in the road, are still leading me to my goal, but my “ego” is getting in the way predetermining the journey. Sometimes, we have to learn or experience “something else” to make everything fit into place, and the planets are lining up our affairs so the final outcome can occur. For example, the right person who will help your business can’t appear, because they are clearing up some of their matters – so be patient! Or we need to clear up our own matters, for that person to come into our lives… get the gist? My daughter wrote a poem, I would like to share:
    I rededicate my whole
    I reclaim my soul
    I forget all I know
    And here I flow.

    Another simple motto, that a former Kansas tenant farmer who later became Governor, lived by is:
    “Don’t panic!”

  16. Hi John:

    Thank you for the invitation. This subject interest me a great deal because I seem to be the master of doing it in reverse–that is focusing on the negative. However, i don’t seem to be as strong with positive visualization. Why is that?

  18. Another thing we do when we process thoughts is sub-vocalize. We move our tongue very slightly and say the words that we are thinking.So, in order to cut out the mind chatter,when we are meditating,say, it helps to immobilize the tongue. Put it down to the floor of your mouth and keep it curled up there, and you won’t be able to think in words.

  20. Thank you for this information. The power of visualization help me and my sister to view what would be the best results after our loving father 80yrs of age passed away. He had that power of visualization. Thank you again.

    Are dreams (dreaning at night) linked to visulisation & affirmations. I have been doing both and now all of a sudden I am dreaming that I have achived one of my goals. Is there something that I’m doing wrong. Is it ok to have dreams that relates to my affirmations & visualisation?

  28. Brown Eyed Girl,
    I think what we do, is visualize and feel what we want in our lives, but it has to be specific.. How does “the Universe” know what to do, when we are confused? You’ve heard the story about the woman who wanted a husband, and what she got was a married man (!).. And the detachment part is = we let “the Universe” figure out the way it is going to happen. “The Universe” is all-knowing, and we have to let our “ego” and “control” get out of the way for the law of attraction to begin… or what Biblically is called “having faith”… It’s unnatural, but we have to quit trying to “control” the “how”… but, we do have to “show up” – meaning, it’s not going to happen, just lying on the couch wishing about it…hum, smile, sing to yourself, go places, read, network, do hobbies, enjoy your work and family, keep active and smile a lot! BE happy.

    I am confused. What do you mean when you say we have to “show up” ? You mean we have to take some actions ? Or do we wait expecting the next step ? Please explain ? Or did you mean we have to be happy and smile about it and go with our day-to-day life ?

  32. Waas… I’m sorry for being confusing. I mean all the things you mention, be happy (positive frame of mind), take actions – like networking, engaging in life, and the next step will appear.

  34. Waas.. maybe another way to explain it, is “be present” in our lives, sometimes we get caught up in a lot of inconsequential stuff, which detracts us from our real journey – that’s what I mean by “show up” – I don’t know about other people, but I have to watch my old habits of behavior…

    Thanks Starduster
    Have a Super Day

  37. Folks: Lets get this moving.
    Your feedback please !!

    The topic is on visualization.
    Lets say you asked the Universe
    for your need ? OK so we put a
    picture on our wall or favourite
    place where we can remind ourselves
    and be happy that it is on it’s way.
    Then we visulaize this every now
    and then ( whenever our eyes pass
    by the picture ).

    So what’s next ? Most of the books,
    articles I read said you don’t have
    to work for the next step.
    Just keep on waiting, expecting ?
    A clue will appear. It may take
    time. Until then Visualize….

    This is the most confusing step.
    Lets say you need a new job. So you
    write a descripion, have your resume
    ready, Have the suit, tie and shoes
    ready ? Maybe post your resume in
    MONSTER.COM. Now that will be my first
    step. Whats next ??? Do we have to
    spend the entire night reading
    newspapers and surfing the internet?
    Then some folks even go take classes
    to improve their interview skills ?
    Some folks just panic and do whatever
    it takes to get the next job. Lots
    of hard work and an emotional
    nightmare.

    This is what most normal people do.
    Some of the folks who lost their
    job spent 60 hours/week on
    job search.

    I find this to be way against the
    “SECRET law of attraction”
    Your just working your way until you
    find the job. You don’t even know
    whether you will get any job.
    And finally when they get some job
    they will accept it ( because they
    had enough of the mental agony and
    torture )

  39. My feeling is if you are looking for a job, that you have to do the essential things to put yourself out there where you can be found, like posting your resume, or answering an ad, but I feel pushing the job search until you feel torchered is trying to make it happen for yourself, instead of leaving the “how to make the job happen” to the Universe. It’s enough to keep the intent for the good job in mind as you go through the normal routine of a job search. I would also have the faith that you would only get an offer for the job that is meant for you. That’s the way I see the Law of Attraction working. Taking the job search to the point of feeling frustrated will have negative consequences, because it will affect how you come across in your interviews.

  42. Really, it’s rather simple but it’s not easy. If you purchase the Having It All materials and study them, you will find the answers. Generally speaking, it’s NOT just about visualization – but that is indeed one part of it. Real change and results require a lot of reconsitioning of yourself and your thought patterns. This can be accomplished but does require a level of commitment and follow through. I think people want to believe that there is some woo-woo magic bullet solution, when the real magic in the solution comes from within you. It comes from clarity of your goals, from visualization, meditation, mental reconditioning and more. Again, it’s simple but not necessarily easy. But like anything else, you can create a habit in 30 days if you keep at it.

  44. Many of life’s problems are inherent. They stem from the belief patterns held by our parents and instilled in us during our formative years. Once we begin to formulate our own opinions, based not on the thoughts of others, but rather on our own journey, we begin to believe for/in ourselves. We begin to listen to thevery resolute and clear thinking voice inside, which gives us advice, directions and encouragement.

    All too often, we ignore the voice and act on impulse. Dreams and visions are a crucial part of that inner voice. What’s real and what is visionary are blurred and subconsciously intertwined. If we can dream it, we can visualise it: If we can see it as clear as daylight, we can bring it from the realm of our subconscious into the warm and stimulating light of reality. Therefore, what you dream and believe, you can achieve.

    Once you have a strong and unwavering self-belief, a strong and functional plan of action and a powerful vision of how you want your life to evolve, it can. It must, because the Universe works in harmony with our positive, uplifting thoughts. We are all light and energy and therefore, an integral part of the Universe. We can have a real and positive effect not just on ourselves and those around us, but on the world at large.

    Procrastination is one of the greatest enemies of success and abundance. Once we plant in our psyche the notion we are shackled by time, or the presence and/or actions of other people/circumstances, we are immediately setting ourselves up for certain defeat. The vicious circle of emptiness will continue.

    Believe you can and you will: Empower yourself with an unerring faith in personal success. Never rely on the input from others to carry you to your destination. Never walk in the shadow of others, nor rely on their light to show you the way forward. We all have our inner glow; we all have a destiny. It’s personal and it’s magnificent. Once we open the map and take the time to look, we will find our way – often through a maze of hurdles, stairs and crevasses. It is there and waiting for us to lay claim.

    Make up your mind to take the journey. It won’t always be easy or accessible. There will be times when you deviate. You will falter and sometimes lose your way. Stay focused and keep the fire burning. Believe you are on the path to abundance and you surely will be. Take time to smell the flowers along the way. Feel the sunshine of achievement on your face – the intensity of belief will increase with each forward step.

    ‘What others believe of us is important. What we believe of ourselves is paramount’. ‘Help comes to us when we are most needy: Accolades come when we most worthy’.

    The greatest tribute we can receive is that from within. Respect yourself at all times and have faith in your own ability. Welcome success and always have gratitude for the goodness that fills your life. Turn your success into a habit!

    I wish you all, every continuing success.

    Once you have a strong and unwavering self-belief, a strong and functional plan of action and a powerful vision of how you want your life to evolve, it can. It must, because the Universe works in harmony with our positive, uplifting thoughts. We are all light and energy and therefore, an integral part of the Universe. We can have a real and positive effect not just on ourselves and those around us, but on the world at large.

    Procrastination is one of the greatest enemies of success and abundance. Once we plant in our psyche the notion we are shackled by time, or the presence and/or actions of other people/circumstances, we are immediately setting ourselves up for certain defeat. The vicious circle of emptiness will continue.

    Believe you can and you will: Empower yourself with an unerring faith in personal success. Never rely on the input from others to carry you to your destination. Never walk in the shadow of others, nor rely on their light to show you the way forward. We all have our inner glow; we all have a destiny. It’s personal and it’s magnificent. Once we open the map and take the time to look, we will find our way – often through a maze of hurdles, stairs and crevasses. It is there and waiting for us to lay claim.

    Make up your mind to take the journey. It won’t always be easy or accessible. There will be times when you deviate. You will falter and sometimes lose your way. Stay focused and keep the fire burning. Believe you are on the path to abundance and you surely will be. Take time to smell the flowers along the way. Feel the sunshine of achievement on your face – the intensity of belief will increase with each forward step.

    ‘What others believe of us is important. What we believe of ourselves is paramount’. ‘Help comes to us when we are most needy: Accolades come when we most worthy’.

    The greatest tribute we can receive is that from within. Respect yourself at all times and have faith in your own ability. Welcome success and always have gratitude for the goodness that fills your life. Turn your success into a habit!

    I wish you all, every continuing success.

    Regards,

    Kieran,
    That is one of the most uplifting comments I’ve read. I’ve just recently become aware of the law of attraction. It’s been about 3 to 4 months and although I am excited about things that are happening in my life right now, in reading your comments, I see where I want to be. I was wondering how long it took you to get to where you are right now spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Please feel free to give any input that might describe your efforts in your journey. Thank you.

    Thanks for the kindly response. First and foremost, no matter what you do – enjoy it as a warm, memorable and functional part of your existence. If you have goals, continue the journey with passion and purpose. Life is the most wonderful journey you will ever take: The destination is the bonus. It can be greater than you ever thought possible, if you remain positive.

    You should never want or need success more than anything. That action will put up blocks. Work towards your goals with a great attitude. Never use desperation as a tool – it’s a negative and will work against you.

    My journey is ongoing, having begun many years ago. I continue to evolve and enjoy life’s journey.

    As a child I began to write motivational quotations and have continued the process. It acts as a yardstick against which I measure my growth and development. I have enough to fill a book and I’m working on that at the moment.

    The journey each of us takes differs from one to the other, yet none is more or less important than another. Your journey will continue to be an individual process. Others may comment and give their opinions yet you must make the decision on where you are going and how the journey is evolving – for you.

    My journey is a work in progress. There are no mistakes in life, as long as we learn from them. They’re simply life’s way of assisting us to take stock of just where we are in our lives, how we’re feeling about ourselves and the best way to move forward to achieve our goals.

    You must first begin to eliminate the negatives from your thoughts, words and actions. This is certainly not a simple process, but it does work. The constant use of certain words, stimulates the subconscious and adds fuel to your visualisation. If you use positive words, they will constantly fuel your onward journey towards great things. Negative words will have the reverse effect.

    For instance, we use words such as ‘struggle’, ‘problems’, ‘failure’, ‘can’t’, ‘never will’ and phrases such as ‘I can’t win’; ‘I’ll never be able to do it’; ‘I’m no good’; ‘I’ll never amount to anything’ and the list goes on. This process is what I term destructive visualisation. It simply places us in a position of recurring failure. I was once told by someone close to me that, ‘My life had passed me by” and “I will never amount to anything’. Had I listened, I would have allowed the negative words and actions of another to impact my life and bring me down to that person’s negative and destructive level.

    Often it’s jealousy which leads a person to try and steal your dreams. That’s impossible if you don’t allow it to happen.

    We all err at times, but it is important to maintain the positive outlook on life, no matter what you’re presented with. Begin and end each day with a series of personal quotations as I do. Offer true gratitude for everything that’s good in your life.

    Begin today to eliminate negativity from your world. Say thank you for ever the most seemingly insignificant blessing. You see a bird on the window sill: A stranger smiles: You receive a phone call from a friend when you feel down: You see a flower bloom out of season: The sun shines through the dark clouds. The list here too, is endless.

    Never be afraid of the possibility of failure; instead, be overjoyed at the probability of success. That’s the key to achieving more in your life and filling your every waking moment with abundance. Emotional, physical, mental and spiritual success comes from a belief in yourself and a firm knowledge that you are on the right track: You do have all the skills necessary to achieve all that you want and when you begin to live every day with the sure and certain knowledge that success and abundance are your right, you can have everything you desire. All things are possible when you follow the rules.

    Have a strong and supported plan of action. Never sit by and simply await success. Unless you are looking for it with your visualization, dreams and plans, it will surely pass you by.

    If you simply stand on the side of the road with your mouth open, you will never catch a breath. You must breathe – this is a golden rule of life. Taking a breath is taking affirmative action to capture success and abundance. It’s capturing life and bringing colour and stimulation to your existence.

    I wish you every continuing success.

    Warm regards,

    Kieran
