Visualization can be a powerful tool for boosting self confidence. So often, we allow negative beliefs to permeate our thought life, robbing us of creativity, confidence and a sense of competence. Recover a mindset of grounded, inspired and positive thinking by using these easy visualization techniques to bolster confidence and foster a sense of self.
Confidence Boosting Visualization Techniques
- Paint Your Picture of Success
Anytime that you begin to feel your belief in yourself wavering, simply begin to visualize the success you’re aiming for. Close your eyes and ask yourself, what would it look like if I succeeded? Picture your wardrobe, facial expressions, and even hairstyle. Envision how your mornings will begin, what you will eat for breakfast, and what you would do on the weekends. No detail is too small to envision. Having a detailed visual image of your success will enable you to not only motivate yourself, but to believe in the reachability of your goals and dreams.
- Capture Your Magic Moments
A quick visualization to use when you feel your self-confidence plummet is to simply pluck a strong memory of success from the past. Think of a time in your life—whether for a moment, an evening or a period of life—where you felt empowered, attractive, successful and at peace. Visualize the scene from your past, envisioning yourself full of self-confidence, persuasiveness, charisma, and competence. Remember how it felt to be proud of your accomplishments, and to trust yourself. Spend time remembering each detail of the memory and recite an affirmation to yourself as you do. In a pinch, simply restate your affirmation and you’ll be able to conjure up this positive proof of your capability and worth.
- Find Roots and Heavenly Inspiration
Envision your feet planted firmly on the ground, unwavering. Relax your muscles in sets, moving from your toes to your neck. As you do, picture a color that you find strengthening and calming as energy running through your body and veins, haloing above your head and reaching upward through the galaxy until it attaches to a star. Envision your feet planted firmly on the ground, with roots extending downwards through the earth until they attach at its core. Combine the mental images to picture yourself as connected to heavenly life-flow and purpose, while firmly rooted and grounded in your sense of self.
