If you expect to achieve your goals if you expect to reach your potential if you expect to have your dreams come true what I’m about to explain to you is mission critical you must become a master a visualization for those of you that are like what the heck is she talking about I did not sign up for some sort of meditationWoohoo a spiritual thing here don’t worry.

This is Mel RobbinsThere’s always science and research involved in everything that I talk about visualization is an extraordinarily powerful skill you may have heard of the law of attraction you may have heard of the word visualization you may have heard of the word manifesting ICall it seeing signs your brain has a system in it.

Here’s the technical term. It’s called the reticular activating system is a network of neurons all up in here and what is the job of the reticular activating system? It is a filter system’s basically a system that allows certain information in your brain and it blocks out other information and guesses who programmed that filter you did and so did the people from your past and so if you constantly feel like you’re unlovable guess what? Your reticular activating system going through the day and it is going to point out every single piece of evidence that confirms that negative belief that you have if you think that people don’t like you at work the reticular activating system the filter is literally going to be looking for evidence to confirm that belief all day long this is one of the reasons why we have such a problem with politics in this country this is why there’s something called confirmation bias confirmation bias means your mind loves to read things that you agree with because reading things that you agree with confirms your filter.

Why do we have a reticular activating system? There’s a really important reason why you have this the reason why is if your brain let in everything? Have you ever looked at? a Facebook page have you noticed how many words are on a standard Facebook page and the ad over here in the ad over here and the ad over here and the ad mezuzah see right here and the stuff up here and that all this over here if your brain took in everything at the equal value your head would literally explode off your shoulders your brain would meltdown and so the reticular activating system protects your brain by filtering information and only letting in stuff that it agrees with soThat’s the scientific reason and mandate for why you got to get busy?Reprogramming that thing now we’re going to talk about how you use visualization in order to start to reprogram the reticular activating system in your brain so that your brain starts to spot opportunities your brain starts to spot evidence that things are working out your brain starts to spot coincidences so you can build momentum and it begins with visualization. So as you take your goals. Right? So you’ve written down all these goals right for 2019I want you to go to each one and I want you to do a visualization exercise and here’s how you’re gonna do it based on science because there’s a particular way you have to do this based on science. Okay, it’s a two-step method if your goal is to improve your self-worth I want you to visualize?What your life looks like and how you’re going to feelAbout yourself when your self-worth has improved. There are two things that you have to do when it comes to the visualization you have to close your eyes truly, I know it sounds stupid but I want you to close your eyes and I want you to in your mind have a specific picture of what it looks like in your life when your self-worth has improved you’re gonna see yourself speaking up at workYou’re gonna see yourself talking more about your business. You’re gonna see yourself leaving bad relationships you’re gonna see yourself defining boundaries. You’re gonna see yourself going to the gym. You’re gonna see yourself taking care of yourself and when you start to visualize the image of that I want you to consciously. This is a step to consciously think of the positive emotions that you’re gonna feel I’m gonna feel happy. I’m gonna feel proud I’m gonna stand taller. I’m going to be so grateful that I made this change carrying the specific picture there. I am there. I am. I’m it I’m at work and I’m raising my hand amazing I’m sharing my tea. There. I am I’m getting a promotion there. I am asking for a raise there am I’ve just signed up another customer to my business there. I am I’ve gone back to school. I feel so good about myselfWhen you do that here’s what’s actually happening in your brain this is the cool science part you are training your brain to have a totally different filter. You see your brain my brain. It doesn’t know the difference between something that actually happened to you like the f you got in your test in tenth grade andThe things you imagine that is happening to you let me say that again your brain doesn’t know the difference between the bad things that actually happen to youThe real memories that you have and an imagined memory that you’re creating your brain will experience you visualizingGoing to the gym you visualizing how happy you feel when you do you visualizing skin for that raise and getting it how to crowd you’re gonna fuel your brain when you visualize the way that I’m teaching you to it encodes it as a real memory and that’s important because when you encode it as a real memory it changes the filter system that reticular activating system and here’s what we know based on research the more you visualize things number oneThe greater your confidence is going to be the greater security you’re gonna have about it. And here’s the really cool thing more you do this with your goals you wake up every day and you just visualize fourIt takes 30 freaking seconds for crying out loud. You visualize having a great day at school. You visualizeCuring your panic and how proud you’re going to be what studies suggest and have proven is that simple? visualizing yourself doing things actually, develops the skill and helps you improve the skills just as if you were actually doing it and so there’s proof based on research that visualization helps you build skills and then finally the other thing that’s really important about this is that the more that you do this what we know based on research?Is that the reason why you start to believe what you think is that you are reprogramming your brain you are changing the network of neurons that act as a filter and so the more that you actually believe yourself and you start thinking and visualizing yourself speaking up the more confident you’re going to become the more skills that you’re building and you’re actually going to do it and then instead of looking for all the reasons when you’re sitting in a meeting to not speak you’re going to just speak up because you’re gonna have changed the filter. You’re gonna look for opportunities. This is how it works this is why this is incredibly important and so day one. I want you to go through all the goals that you set and I want you every single day throughout the next 30 days you are going to spend 30 seconds your dreams deserves the thirty seconds don’t you think you’re gonna close your eyes and you’re gonna visualize what does it look like in your life when you have achieved?Your monetary goals this year. How does it feel to go to the bank and see that balance?How does it feel to be able to write that check and take your kids to Disney World? on money that you made how does it feel to be able to rent your own place or put down a down payment for the house, you’ve always dreamt of how does it feel?To be able to have saved enough money so you can quit the job that you hate and launch the business because you have achieved your goals feels darn good. That’s how it feels and I want you to just savor that because what you’re doing when you visualize is you’re reprogramming your reticular activating system that system of neurons that network that acts like a filter your brain so that it’s spotting opportunity so that it is helping you see evidence that you are confident that you are capable that you can do this instead of all the garbage you think right now
