Visualize success, and what you'll do to reward yourself
A goal envisioned is a goal half completed.? Most people find it difficult if not impossible to expend large amounts of energy on something that they can't "see" as existing in their reality.? Creating that vision before starting out on your journey creates a real destination in your mind, which is infinitely preferable to just wandering off in the general direction of whatever it is you want and hoping you end up somewhere acceptable.? The stronger and more realistically detailed you make your visualizations, the better chance you have of succeeding.? Why leave anything to chance - picture your goal right down to the stitching, as it were, to ensure that your energy is being focused in the right direction and is concentrated on creating the most effective and appropriate result.?
Visualizing your "attaboy" (your gift to yourself for reaching your goal) works the same way, except with the added bonus of creating a higher level of motivation if it is a particularly, well, rewarding reward.? Sometimes, if the work to get to your goal is especially difficult or unpleasant (weight loss, getting up an hour earlier every day, not yelling at the kids all week, etc) the treat can be far more energizing than the goal itself!
