USING VISUALIZATION TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
BY ROBIN NIXON
Wish you could be someone different? Maybe you see someone you want to emulate, but feel that it’s completely out of reach? Even Wayne Rooney uses visualization before games – pictures himself playing well, and ignoring pressure. Robin Nixon’s book is written to tackle these problems, through the use of simple and practical creative visualization techniques. The author of Creative Visualization for Dummies and the Yes I Can! app, describes in careful detail how to find solutions to seemingly insoluble problems. He encourages readers to think of the techniques and exercises as “life blueprints” and guarantees tangible results.
Nixon’s book concerns itself with helping the reader navigate specific difficulties as well as more abstract ones – using creative visualization to correct the way you walk, or teaching you how to “expand your horizons” and widen an unhealthy, brittle focus.
The author insists this isn’t just “mumbo-jumbo”, but a scientific way of improving yourself, with an angle that is based on psychology and uses real-world examples. Issues in the business sphere are also resolved, with chapters featuring solutions to a personal deficit of creativity, ambition, confidence and responsibility. This book aims to help the reader achieve all the things they think are beyond them. And even if you don’t feel the need to improve your thinking, readers might find answers to problems they didn’t even realise they had.
