- Your mind is chattering away.
- You’re wondering if you’re doing things correctly.
- You’re wondering what’s going to happen.
Just about everyone goes through this. And just about everyone who is determined to master their visualization techniques knows that it takes practice.
Doing anything for the first time feels a bit awkward. Recognize this when you visualize. Remind yourself that simple repetition and practice will soon start to smooth out the rough patches.
Starting off, keep your visualization exercises simple. Resist the temptation to rush forward.
Use the most basic ways to visualize, such as the Simple Image Visualization Technique to get started. Repeat these exercises. Don’t be in a rush.
