How Visualizing Can Help Your Career

Career Advice

6225530793_5cee65a95c_zIf you send out a request to the world, sometimes, it will answer. Visualizing is simply positive thinking. It’s using your imagination to create a dream scenario in your head where everything goes perfectly and you get exactly what you want, deserve, and need. Here are a few ways you can incorporate visualization into your career.

  1. Before a big interview…
    Visualize yourself charming the interviewer, nailing all the interrogating questions, and walking out confidently and absolutely knowing that you landed the position.
  2. Before work each day…
    Visualize yourself confidently tackling all the days challenges and impressing both your coworkers and your bosses. Imagine what this could lead to in the long run: a promotion? A salary increase?
  3. Before each new year…
    Write down your career goals then visualize yourself courageously achieving each goal. What will it take? Don’t focus on the negative — only the positive.

When visualizing, imagine not only what these scenarios would look like but also how you would feel. Really get into the details: what are you wearing? What are you saying? What is the weather like on this day? What are you eating for lunch?

The more detailed you can be with your visualizations, the more real they will feel. And perhaps the laws of attraction will work in your favor! What have you got to lose?
