I was wondering the other day about what part of "visualize" do you think most people misunderstand?

The use of visualization to present information is not a new phenomenon. It has been used in maps, scientific drawings, and data plots for over a thousand years. We look in awe at the early cave drawings of life before the written word. Our early ancestors used visualization and visual imagery to tell stories, to create myths and to honor each other.

It is a confusing term and one that is used or misused by many. On one level it is a technique involving focusing on positive mental images in order to achieve a particular goal
visualize or to form a mental image of (something incapable of being viewed or not at that moment visible).

On another level, it is a motivational technique which can help you achieve personal goals. If you really want something to come to fruition, then you have to put your imaginative mind to work. See the result in front of you, play the game you are going to play in your mind, or watch yourself accepting your degree at college. The only limit is your own mind. Visualization is also a useful mental skill which allows you to picture an image or scenario not immediately in front of your eyes.

Visualization used as a motivational technique is a skill that can be learned but like any skill, it must be practiced more than once a day. Many try visualization and fail because of many reasons. One reason could be that we only do it just once a day, for a few minutes a day, because we have yet to realize that whatever it is we most want lies only a little thinking away? So we stop when we fail, rather than continuing to try. Can you hear me now?
