Are affirmations to think positive or get yourself motivated not working? Never really worked for me either. The secret is visualisation.
And not really surprising considering research shows that the brain can’t distinguish between an imagined event and real event and still changes body chemistry accordingly.
I think it’s one of the best kept secrets. Might do the trick for you as well.
For example, if you need to get yourself into a positive mindset to tackle a business task, simply spend a minute or two bringing up a memory of a time when you were super motivated. A time that you were on fire and raring to go. Spend as long with that memory as you need. You will find your mood immediately changes.
Visualisation can be used for any mindset – confident speaker/trainer, loving partner, focused and productive, or confident and positive seller.
