return to nothing
Reverting back to basics.
Knowing truly, your likes, dislikes and tolerances sets the stage for boundaries you can use as your zone of comfortability.
From here you will know for sure when you are stepping outside of your comfort zone and into the unknown.
From your wish to your dream and assertion of boundaries comes the visualisation of your desire.
In preparation for the Ben Nevis hike I researched all available information on the journey ahead. I pictured myself hiking every part of the journey and re-enacted the most difficult walks in my mind until I was happy that I had the ability to do them. I read reviews of the hike and put myself in my predecessors shoes and in my mind I shared their highs and lows with them. In fact, ‘I felt I had already done my trek’. That’s how strong my visualisation became.
Word of warning though, visualisation alone is like riding a bike with no wheels. Enhance your chances of achieving your wish by setting out practical development plans and believing in your ability to achieve your goal, no matter what may occur. For example; To improve my chess rating, I set a plan to learn from the best via tutorials and test matches.
To run the distance of a half marathon I set myself incremental small distance runs building slowly to my target range. In conjunction with positive visualisation I was able to increase my chess rating and run the distance of a half marathon.
Without visualisation there is no focus on your wish.
Without practical application there is no ability to achieve your wish.
Above all else, I must always be prepared to go back to basics and fine tune my fundamentals.
