Headline news in USA Today: “The Zen of Football”
Front page of the Sports Section- Rodgers: “Foreseeing is Believing”.
In this article, Green Bay Packers Quarterback, Aaron Rodgers talks about the power of visualization. He credits his daily mental practice in helping the Packers reach the post season – and for pounding the Atlanta Falcons, the #1 seed, 48-21 last weekend.
Rodgers says he learned how to visualize from a coach, which he was in 6th grade. He also says most of the big plays he made in the upset victory over Atlanta, he pictured in his imagination first.
It’s amazing to me that this story is headline news in today’s world. You would think with all the information available on the power of your creative imagination that this would not be in the news. After all, how many great athletes don’t visualize in one form or another. Some use self-hypnosis. Some visualize while lying down. Some while sitting. I even teach people to do it while standing still or moving.
No matter how you visualize though, it won’t work unless your practice creates what Dr. Maxwell Maltz called “The Winning Feeling.”
Many people visualize but don’t feel anything. This is a red flag that something they are doing is wrong. Visualization without a change of emotion isn’t the proper use of your creative imagination.
I believe the more powerful approach to mind training is to change the feelings before you visualize. This can be accomplished thru deep breathing alone – or through stillness or through movements that integrate the breath.
E-motion stands for energy movement. It’s great to sit or lie still and picture what you want. But it’s much more effective to train your mind like a fighter who shadow boxes an imaginary foe.
Shadow boxing is just a term to describe a practice used by top salespeople, speakers, golfers as well as surgeons. Don’t just picture yourself doing the thing. Go through the motions as you picture it – and FEEL it.
You’ll learn this process at a much deeper level as you study the Zero Resistance Living System I have ready for you.
