It was a lovely day and there were more spectators than ever. Lots of people were having a day off from the daily grind and thoroughly enjoying themselves. Most of them haven’t taken it on board yet that they could be down by the river favourir any day they feel like it or at the beach or wherever their favourite place happens to be.
I used to believe that visualizing a goal was what separated the winners from the losers, success from failure. Call it the not so secret formula for achieving your goals.
The interviewer obviously had the same idea about visualization. Then the rower said that the magic words that gave me goose bumps.
He said that it was not visualizing the goal – but visualizing the events/challenges leading up to it – and visualizing yourself dealing with them at various points along the way of your journey to the goal.
Now I am going to re-think my goal setting strategies , but I have a gut feeling that this is really going to work. I believe it will make massive changes in my results and those of anyone else who puts it into action.
