5 Successful People Who Use The Art of Visualisation

The Art of Visualization is a powerful personal development tool that you can use to motivate yourself towards reaching your goals. Personal development is the art of re-creating yourself and like any creation, it begins with a visual element. You create mental images of the person you want to be, placing yourself in a specific environment and start working towards it. Celebrities and business leaders have often attributed their success to the Art of Visualization. Examples include:

1. Oprah Winfrey

As one of the most powerful women in media, Oprah Winfrey admits that she practiced visualization before she understood it. In her youth, she saw her grandmother toil at home, and she’d say to herself that her life would never be like the images she saw, it would be better. She is also a firm believer in vision boards and has talked about them repeatedly on her show. She even admits to creating a vision board of President Obama’s inauguration before he was elected as the president.

2. Lindsey Vonn

Skiing gold medalist Lindsey Vonn visualizes a course before she gets on it, and even simulates the path by shifting her weight as if she is on the skis, practicing her breath pattern in the process. In an interview, she admitted that before a race, she has been on the path over 100 times in her head and knows every bump and turn, which gives her a competitive advantage. The visualizations help her engrain the path in her head and anticipate challenges beforehand.

3. Jim Carrey

Long before he was receiving million dollar checks for his work, Jim Carrey believed he would soon become an A-List movie star. Taking his visualization to a new level, he wrote himself a false $10,000,000 check and carried it in his wallet until he was given a real check for a similar amount for his work in Dumb And Dumber. Since then, the zeros on his check have only risen higher making him one of the highest grossing actors in Hollywood.

4. Will Smith

Will Smith is very vocal about his support for the law of attraction. According to the law of attraction, the universe will bring to fruition whatever you picture in your mind. He admits that long before he was a world-famous actor, he saw his life as it is today, the world was just getting ready for him. He is also a firm believer in the idea that the man who says he can is just as right as the man who says he can’t. It’s all about what you see and believe you can achieve.

5. Arnold Schwarzenegger
