Create a Mental Movie to Achieve Your Goals

We all have something in life (or work) that we want to accomplish. Most of the time we don’t know how to go about achieving these goals and we just allow ourselves to fail by simply giving up. You can increase your chances of success by creating a mental movie. It is a creative and simple way to program your mind–and it’s fun!

Making mental movies is a creative visualization technique used by Neuro-Linguistic Practitioners to help clients reprogram their mind to overcome fears or phobias, heal past traumas or to achieve work or life goals. If you know the goal you want to achieve then you can take advantage of this powerful tool to help you create a successful outcome. It’s a 4 step process.

Step 1: Decide your goal

Identify the goal you want to achieve–even if it seems incredible or impossible to you. It must be specific. Write it down.

Step 2: Create a blueprint or script

Okay–you know the end point; the goal. It is important that you create a blueprint or script describing the exact change you want to make. You are author, director and producer of your movie. For it to be useful and create a successful outcome it must:

  • Use all five senses
  • Be very descriptive and
  • Be written in the present tense

For example, if your goal is to become more confident in social situations your blueprint or script might look like this:

I am at a party for a friend’s birthday. The room is brightly lit with music playing. There are red, blue, yellow and green balloons everywhere. I can hear people talking and laughing. I am standing in the center of a group of people talking about a movie. Everyone is listening. They are smiling at me and I feel happy. The beat of the music pulses through me making me feel invigorated. I feel comfortable talking and listening with others.

With every sip of my drink I feel stronger and more confident. Each bit of the delicious food makes me feel happier. I am smiling…

You can include different scenes, just like in a real movie. So change the situations to include any that are important in helping you to create the movie of the life you desire.

Step 3: Relax

This is how you will get your subconscious mind to open up and be receptive to your mental movie, so  it is very important to relax.

Find somewhere comfortable. Close your eyes. Tense every muscle in your body and then release. Repeat twice more. Now breathe in deeply through your nose to a count of five and out through your mouth to a count of eight. Repeat this three times or until you feel relaxed.

Step 4: Play your movie

This is where the mental programming takes place. While relaxed, play your mental movie showing you living the goal you set. It is important that your movie is played as if you are living it now. Feel the emotions, experience the sights and sounds. Don’t forget to include all your senses to make the experience feel real.

To make sure that your new mental program is fully installed you will need to repeat steps 3 and 4 every day for 30 days for best effect.
