This Jim Fannin Show episode is all about programming your life, business, or sport for success. Unfortunately, just as easily you can insert a negative program that can wreak havoc on your good intentions.
Have you ever felt your stomach tie up in knots with worry as you picture something you don’t want? How about seeing in your mind’s eye every possible way a work or personal situation can go wrong? What about getting stuck in traffic as you mentally picture yourself being late to your appointment? As a golfer have you replayed a bad tee shot that led to your triple bogie finish on the last hole of play?
All of the above are examples of visualization, but not particularly helpful ones! Positive and negative images from your thoughts dictate your success or failure. From coaching Fortune 100 executives to Cy Young Award winning pitchers and PGA champions, one of my top priorities is to help my clients eliminate negative daydreaming and flood their mind with visual solutions and results so they can experience abnormal success.
Essentially, you have "two minds." The “conscious” mind is the one you know the best. This mind typically has 2000-3000 thoughts daily with each thought producing an image or picture in your mind’s eye. The “conscious” mind utilizes all your five senses to assist in your daily life as your thoughts vacillate into the future and or past, as well as parking itself in the present. This mind knows right from wrong and good from bad. It contains all positive or negative thought. It is rational. Of course, when you sleep it shuts down and becomes dormant.
The subconscious mind operates 24/7 behind the scenes and never shuts down. It governs all bodily functions to include breathing, digestion, cellular repair, healing, cooling the body, growing fingernails and hair and much more. In addition, it governs your intuition and its ability to attract positive people that can help manifest solutions and other success possibilities. Likewise, it houses your ability to attract and remain in the Zone phenomenon of peak performance. It keeps your “operating system” running behind the scenes from breathing, blood manufacture in the bone marrow to digestion without your conscious mind ever saying, “suck in oxygen now!” The great news is that brain science and over 2,500 clients have proven that the subconscious mind can be programmed to “pull” you towards your well-defined dreams, visions and goals. For over 40 years my clients have done this with record success!
When a major league baseball player sits in a mental swamp of dread that he’s going into a hitting slump, his body responds by tightening up and letting the perfect pitch sail by for a called strike. This is because his subconscious mind overrode his conscious mind so it can help him be true to the negative mental program he created. If you’re thinking consciously as a victim of circumstance, condition or situation your subconscious mind will keep you as a victim. Conversely, when you visualize success on a regular basis, you program your subconscious mind to act as a master puppeteer that coordinates your conscious mind and physical body to work together literally to manifest into reality what you see in your mind’s eye.
We visualize 60-70 % of our waking hours and we possess free will to picture anything we want. Why do we picture being a victim of negative circumstances, conditions and situations? Why do we envision failure especially when we have the power to envision success?
Champions think differently! They know visualization works to program their success. They know their subconscious mind does NOT know the difference between fantasy or reality. This means that with positive “free will” they can place anything on the screen of space of their conscious mind. With repetition and other proven performance techniques, these visualizations can and will manifest into their physical equivalent. Don’t you think it’s time to get on this positive, visualization pathway?
In this episode, I break down the four types of visualization: task, situational, symbolic, and aftermath. You need all of them and I discuss how each can be used for maximum results.
In this episode you’ll also learn:
- How Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian proved themselves to be true champions in their relationship by getting Italian food. (Hint: it wasn’t just any Italian food!)
- The In the Zone performance of St. Louis Cardinals infielder Matt Carpenter as he entered a Zone state to become the second major-leaguer ever to go 5-for-5 with three home runs and two doubles in a game.
- How one couple with no previous experience founded a non-profit organization that turns ocean trash into prosthetic limbs for children in developing nations.
- The reason the life of Alabama native Walter Carr was changed by his brave decision to walk 20 miles to his first day at a new job after his car broke down.
Also, I answer a question from the “Ask Jim” Mailbag about helping kids get out of “summer mode” and prepare for a Zone school year. (Send your question(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org).
