Activate Performance Brilliance with Creative Visualization

Do you often suffer from the fear of failure and anxiety which affects your performance for practical examinations, tests or public performance activities?

We all know that fear can sometimes hold us back from taking the right action to achieve key goals in our life. However, what is cool is that we can transform our inner beliefs and perspective of situations in order to achieve different outcomes.

Even better news there are simple & fun processes we can use anytime to feel more confident with our abilities to provide the best opportunity for success.

So inside video I reveal:

  • How to use visualization to eliminate fear and boost confidence to mentally prepare for any practical challenge.
  • My personal story for how I used visualization to overcome my fear of failure and finally pass my driving test (when I was teenager)
  • A step by step guide on how to use “Visual Pre-paving” on a daily basis to achieve dream goals

Anyone can use creative visualization, and by mastering this you can gain control over your thoughts and emotions for any situation. There are several ways to programme the mind, however, this has proven to be the most effective for producing rapid results.

Olympic Athletes actually enhance their sporting performance with such techniques. So press the play button to find out more 🙂

Failing Forward

The experience of failure is always learning process to step up. When we allow ourselves to accept this truth the strength of fear for having certain outcomes will diminish. Thomas Edison who invented the light bulb said “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

I also love this quote from Dale Carnegie – “Inaction breads doubt and fear. Action breads confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do no sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy”

Creative Visualization – Interesting facts & information

Creative visualization uses the imagination to create positive thinking in order to make goals come true and is frequently used by athletes to enhance their performance. In fact during a sports enhancement study Olympic athletes were separated into 3 groups. The first Group received 100% physical training. Group 2 received 75% physical and 25% mental training and group 3 received 50% of each physical and mental training. Group 3 achieved the best performance results. The practice has therefore become widely used by sportsmen, and has been been accepted in sports psychology.

Wallace Wattles (1860–1911) the author of one of the most studied books of all time.”The Science of Getting Rich” was one of the first Americans to practice and promote the technique for self improvement.

Famous celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, Will Smith and Jim Carrey have claimed to have used visualization techniques to help them gain their biggest successes in life.

    I love your term Failing Forward. I wrote about failing and bouncing forward last week so can definitely relate. Interesting stats you shared on the Olympians. I heard a cycling gold medalist (expected to get no more than silver) speak last year about her visualisation – in her training they played the noise of a crowd to simulate the actual event.

      Hey Kristy, thank you very much. I use to consider myself as a perfectionist in the past and what has helped to keep growing artistically is to allow myself to be more open to opportunities which arrive from failure & let downs.

      The true strength of a warrior derives from the ability to accept the outcome, adapt and tackle things from a different approach. I have certainly learn’t my biggest lessons in life through failures. Yes it can hurt sometimes, although I now actually enjoy uncovering the emotions and thought patterns which do not support me in order to keep moving forward. I love the title of your blog post by the way 🙂

    Thanks for introducing me to the concept of self visualization. I feel it is going to change my approach in my writing.

    Hey Sandeep, I am glad you see the value with visualization. Whenever I become stuck with an idea, I allow myself to have some quite space, become aware of my breathing whilst holding the intention to uncover new insights to create material which further inspires me. I believe the subconscious mind holds the answers to almost anything – we just need to allow ourselves to connect to it through peace and clear positive intention. I am also on a mission to improve my writing. So please let us know how you get on with the visualization process 🙂

    Hey Paul, great video – I really think they work for what you do! I love a bit of visualisation but what some people forget is that you also need to take action its’ not just visualise something and then expect it to happen – action is also required too. Thank you for the reminder to do this actively – i do forget sometimes 🙂

      Hey Paula, thank you. You are totally right we cannot create without action.

      The purpose of the visualization process shared on this blog post aims to help people prepare to take BIG action with flow and confidence 🙂 Loved your recent blog post by the way.

    Hey Paul! Nice article. I actually use this technique all the time. Literally all the time- I’ve been doing it since I was a kid- but before reading about it in books. I used it to pass exams, get into the high school I wanted, and then get into the college I wanted… for those milestones in a kid’s life… but I did not realize I was doing it until I read about it in Wallace Wattles book, and then I realized I was using this method already! So now I do it more systematically, but I do agree with Paula’s comment above that- AFTER the visualization exercise, it’s important to put your plan into action towards that goal!

      Hi Jesicka, that’s great to know that you are doing it systematically. I myself had not realised it’s power until it was pointed out to me. As a day dreamer when I was a kid, I often thought of ways to create different outcomes in the mind’s eye, however, I did not understand it’s true power until I became more aware of the results in my teenage years (as mentioned on my video). It has certainly taken me from strength to strength in life.

    Great video Paul! I remember experiencing such absolute anxiety and nerves when doing my piano examinations as a teenager. It made me perform so much worse than I knew I was capable of. It was so frustrating. Thank you for sharing this visualisation process with us 🙂

    Hi Michaela, I also got nervous during the piano examinations at the London College of Music. There certainly is a lot to consider when performing in front of examiners. Although somehow I always managed to pull off the results I wanted, even though I was shaking with fear often. Had I known about these processes when I was a boy I would have performed even better 🙂

    Hi Paul

    I really love the idea of creative visualization and plan on using the techniques you’ve shared. I also love the ‘failing forward’ and agree that we have to look at our failures as learning opportunities. Failing is a way to learn and grow!
