Embarking on a Journey of Visualization

One Story

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps was once asked in the interview, “What were you doing differently that your rivals were not?” His answer may surprise you.

“Honestly, what I did was not rocket science. For me as a kid, I had dreams bigger than anybody else could ever dream and I wanted to be the greatest.”

Coupled with diligent practice in the pool, the method he chose for greatness was visualization. Bob Bowman, the legendary swimming coach who has trained Phelps since he was a teenager, explains the concept like this:

“Champions rehearse success on a daily basis… When you set a goal, you’re basically creating a picture of yourself in a different way. It’s a different you.

So if your picture is “I’m not all that good but I’m a pretty good swimmer” that’s the way you’re going to be. If your picture is “I’m an Olympic champion, I will do whatever it takes to get there, I will think about it all the time, I will visualize myself doing and I will see myself doing it” that’s where things start to move.

Visualization is key in any sort of goal-oriented activity. The best person in the world of visualization I promise is Michael Phelps.”

One Insight

Exploring a treasure trove of data from thousands of successful and prosperous individuals, we’ve unearthed a fascinating insight: these individuals lovingly plant their dreams deep into their subconscious minds.

Imagine uploading this incredible data set into your thoughts—it’s like slipping into a serene meditation. Picture a state where your mind isn’t the boss, allowing gentle alpha waves to dance freely within your brain. And guess what? Among the most magical ways to chat with your subconscious is through visualization.

You’re sowing subconscious seeds when you dream up your heart’s desires. These seeds sprout into the most delightful events and connections. Believe it or not, these lucky moments pop up out of nowhere as if orchestrated by the universe itself. This is the science of good fortune which manifests itself error-free.

Here’s the cherry on top: it only takes a sweet minute or two each day. Here’s what you do: close your eyes, imagine your perfect future, and let a smile light up your face. Then, let the days roll by while you eagerly wait for the shower of good fortune to pour down on you.

The most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps on the secret of great success:

“I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and you put the work and time into it. I think your mind really controls everything.”
