Do you subconsciously sabotage yourself from reaching your goals? Do you let self-doubt get in your way?
It is common for people to begin to scroll through all the possible obstacles that could prevent them from reaching their destination; however, the problem occurs when we let these obstacles become so big that we just give up.
Don’t let this be you!
Rather than creating larger-than-life obstacles in your mind and dwelling on everything that could go wrong, envision yourself as the greatest. Visualize yourself reaching your goals, giving the big speech, applying for and getting the job—conquer your Mt. Everest!
Some of the most successful people have used the power of visualization to accomplish their dreams. Muhammad Ali would visualize exactly how he wanted his fights to play out. Jim Carey carried a check that he wrote to himself for $10,000 around in his pocket for 5 years before he landed a role that actually gave him the money to cash the check. The check in his pocket was his visual reminder to keep seeing himself as a great actor.
The more vivid you can be in your visualization the better it will work for you.
Take 10 minutes a day in quiet meditation and see yourself accomplishing whatever it is that you wish. Be as detailed as possible. What do you see, hear, feel? How amazing does the final victory feel?
Below is a guided meditation to help you visualize your goals, or set a timer for 10 minutes and freestyle it.
Some other helpful things you can do are: create a vision board, write your goals in a journal or on a post it note. Place these visual reminders where you will see them daily.
Having always had a love for physical fitness, I taught group fitness throughout college, and upon graduating was hired to teach public school.With the demands of a new job and a new husband, exercise became my time to unwind.
With my 3 children now in school, I returned to my first career as a group exercise instructor.
Yoga is one of my favorite styles to teach because it has something for everyone. It is healing and strengthening all in one. It truly is the complete package.
When not in the gym teaching, I enjoying spending time outdoors hiking and exploring with my husband and 3 children.
We are avid travelers who enjoy each new adventure that we encounter. All three of my children are very active in competitive sports.”
