In WellDoing coaching, I often encourage clients to visualise what the success of a particular project looks like. This helps to clarify the actions that are required to achieve the vision.
In Self-development circles, personal visualisations have been shown to raise levels of happiness. A key technique is the use of daily affirmations, repeated internally or out loud in front of the mirror.
A good affirmation has 5 things -
1, It's personal
2, It's positive
3, It's visual
4, It's in the present tense
5, It's emotional
