5 Inspiring Reasons Why You Need to Visualise Your Personal Goals

Imagine yourself in a place where you feel totally empowered. You lead an uplifting, successful life where you are fulfilled both personally and professionally. You have purposefully achieved a healthy work / life balance, something that so many strive for, but find elusive. You are mindful, sleep well and have clarity of purpose with every decision you make fully aligned with your true values. You exercise regularly and are conscious of the fresh air flowing in and out of your lungs, which gives you an essence of vitality and energy that flows throughout your whole body. This is the power of Visualising your personal goals!

This personal exercise is an integral piece of the personal goal setting puzzle, which promotes overall balance in your health and wellbeing.

Yes, you will still need to contend with internal and external challenges in your life. Deal with the constant pressure of juggling competing priorities at home and work … life would be rather dull and boring if this wasn’t the case! But the difference is, you feel totally alive and in control. You are confident, resilient and you are living the best life possible.

Visualisation engages the occipital lobe located at the back of your brain. This allows you to envision what you truly want for your life and it’s proven to positively stimulate your brain into believing your Goals are achievable. It brings greater meaning to what you want to accomplish and you are more likely to put in the focused effort needed to make things happen.

It’s about imagining what you want or where you want to be, being in the moment and really feeling the emotions of achievement. It provides a powerful vision of the future, so let’s take a look at the 5 Inspiring Reasons Why You Need to Visualise Your Personal Goals:

  1. It Emotionally Links you to your Goals

Document your goals and compliment this with a visual interpretation of what you want to achieve in life. By doing this, you are taking a holistic approach to goal setting. It cultivates a positive mindset and helps bring focus. With that comes a deeper, personal understanding of what is important to you and where you are heading.

  1. You Create a Clear mental picture of what You Want in Life

Visualisation is a fun way of creating a vivid image in your subconscious mind of you living the life you’ve always dreamed of. The ability to see yourself having, doing or being it, nurtures your self-belief and motivation. This will keep you on track when you need to make informed choices for yourself. 

  1. It’s a Positive and Creative Experience

You will find visualisation an invaluable and profoundly symbolic exercise. It makes your goals feel real and believing they are achievable brings a feel-good factor to the whole experience. It fosters personal creativity, develops self-worth, and with it, a sense of happiness, fulfilment and pride.

  1. You Benefit from Greater Clarity of Purpose

It is inspiring when you have a clear image of what your personal goals are. Visualisation shows you what the end goal will look like. In the process you will feel positively energised into taking control of your life’s direction. This is an important mindset to have when you are challenged by personal factors such as; stress, overwhelm, procrastination and fear.

  1. It Boosts Your Self-Esteem and Confidence

If you can see it and emotionally feel it, then you can believe it! Visualising a bigger, better, brighter future is empowering and really makes a difference to the effort you need to put in to achieving your goals. Anything and everything becomes possible. You become braver and more courageous in your decision-making and that inner strength will propel you to your goal achievement quicker.

Having a physical visual reminder of your goals will also compliment your visualisation. Vision Boards are powerful tools that act as a further source of personal inspiration.

Take yourself to that place of joy and fulfilment, and use your vision board as part of your daily visualisation routine … when placed in a prominent position at home or work, it is a constant reminder of the positive change you want to bring in to your life.
