Power of Visualization

“Losers visualize the penalties of failure, winners visualize the rewards of success”- William S. Gilbert


The above quote by William Gilbert explains a lot about why some people succeed and others fail. We all are born alike. Nobody is born intelligent or stupid. Nobody is born passionate. Nobody is born strong and weak. These are the traits we develop over some time. But if we compare a successful person with a person who failed we see a clear distinction?


In most of the cases, a successful person is always motivated towards his goal. He forms a picture describing his success and lives it every second of his life. Consequently, things start falling into the right place sooner or later, everything works out according to their plan, which the others assume to be a coincidence or their luck. On the other hand, a person who failed to achieve his goals used to be scared and unsure during his journey. He used to spend more time imagining the consequences of his failure. He felt incompetent and that he was not good enough for success. When such a person comes face to face with his real battle, he gives up early and ends up losing the battle.


In a book called “Your invisible power”, Genevieve Behrand talks about this phenomena and establishes how one can achieve anything in life by harnessing this power of their subconscious mind. Nature and mind work in mysterious ways. Understanding this can help one achieve wonders. We need to understand that we too are a progeny of this nature. Though we look for separate, we still are connected to it. It’s exactly like a tree. Nature manifests itself in various forms such as human beings, animals, plants, and environment, etc just like the trunk of a tree that bifurcates into various branches. When we strongly believe in something, our subconscious mind sends out vibrations to nature. With a stronger belief, these vibrations grow stronger day by day. As a result of this signal, things start falling into the right place as required by us. The success of these phenomena entirely depends upon the strength of the vibrations sent out by the subconscious mind and thereby, our belief in something.


Now, we may come across situations, where two individuals harnessing their powers of subconscious mind demand contradicting things from nature. Under such circumstances, a person with a stronger belief wins. This also means that we have to be very careful about what we think. If our mind is not controlled and used in the right way, it may even pave the way for our destruction. We have to train our minds in a way that we think positively. All our thoughts in some way pave way for our future. Whether it is a path of success or failure depends upon us.

As said in the Bible, ‘Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you”.
