Myth – Visualize Winning

"The more you visualize yourself winning, the closer you get to actually winning."

The Truth:

  • Thinking about goals increases the number of times people thought of those goals and decreased the amount of actual work.
  • Research shows that people who used visualization to envision themselves studying instead of getting an A not only performed better, but also experienced less stress and anxiety.

What To Do

  • Remind yourself that work trumps visualization.
  • Don’t visualize yourself too much with the gold medal but also focus on the process.
