What song do you want to sing?
Oct 21, 2019
The most powerful exercise you can do right now is to use your mind to visualize what you want. Whatever your goal is, first imagine yourself in that ideal picture. In general we think in images. Continue to flash the image of what you desire onto the movie screen of your mind. Imagine yourself singing effortlessly and with great joy in the situation of your choice. It may be singing to a loved one, performing live on stage, or jamming with a group of friends. Begin by seeing yourself in that situation in the manner you choose: relaxed, confident, and eager to share your voice with others. Practice this vision multiple times every day. Employ the power of written words by taking time to write out the script of how it will all unfold for you. Write from the place as if your desire has already happened and it went even better than you could have imagined. Review your script at least once a day. Add to its power by saying your written words out loud.
Mental Rehearsal Script:
Be as detailed as possible when you write your script. Paint the whole picture of the event. How you looked, who was there, the beautiful mood of the event, the perfect weather, everything you want. Describe it in detail as if you are writing about it after it has occurred. It has happened and it unfolded in this perfect way. Your mental rehearsal script can be used to create any situation...
“Thank you for the amazing outcome to _________________________. Everything went so smoothly and turned out better than I could have possibly imagined. I was relaxed, calm, confident, and pleasantly excited the entire time. I am so grateful for this incredible unfolding and the joy I experienced today. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
"Brain studies now reveal that thoughts produce the same mental instructions as actions. Mental imagery impacts many cognitive processes in the brain: motor control, attention, perception, planning, and memory. So the brain is getting trained for actual performance during visualization. It’s been found that mental practices can enhance motivation, increase confidence and self-efficacy, improve motor performance, prime your brain for success, and increase states of flow—all relevant to achieving your best life!" ~ Psychology Today
"There is one thing that separates elite athletes from average athletes… Elite athletes utilize the power of guided imagery or visualization. Imagery has long been a part of elite sports and many Olympic athletes have mastered the skill with the help of Sport Psychologists and Mental Game Coaches. When athletes visualize or imagine a successful competition, they actually stimulate the same brain regions as you do when you physically perform that same action. Visualization in sports or mental imagery is a way of conditioning for your brain for successful outcomes." ~ Peak Performance Sports
