Visualizing goals is an incredibly powerful tool if you want to reach your goals quickly and reliably. However, it is important that you do it correctly. It is like training, the right technique makes the difference. If you train badly, you will not make good progress. However, if you stick to a few simple rules, then you have a good chance of becoming a true goal magnet through target visualization. Then your inner pig will have no chance. 🐷❌

In this article you will learn how visualization works and what you should keep in mind if you want to be as successful as possible.

tl;dr Through correct & repetitive visualization of your goals you have a more likely chance to reach your goals faster. Why? You program your subconscious on it, so you think more often about your goals and work harder and more often towards them.

How and why visualizing goals helps you achieve them

How the visualization of a Goal works is pretty simple. You have set yourself a really good goal with your goal formulation, which you imagine how you achieved it.

You try to imagine it as realistic as possible and to send a signal to your subconscious that it is a desirable state. Therefore your subconscious mind understands that it should help you to reach this state.

Basically you program your subconscious to what you want. This will manifest itself sooner or later in your life (if used correctly). This is also the reason why it is sometimes also called something to order from the universe or targeted manifestation.

So you imagine something and sooner or later it becomes true. Even though this is a nice idea and I think visualizing your goals makes a lot of sense, it is not as easy as some readers of The Secret (*) imagine. Of course it’s not that something just manifests itself in your life through your imagination. That would be Wishful thinking, unless you’re a wizard πŸ§™

However, the technique of visualizing helps you to pull your subconscious on your side. This makes it easier for you to create good habits and to overcome the ever-emerging laziness and listlessness. So you create the best conditions to reach your goal. However, you still have to take the steps, but that will be easier for you.

How the Visualization of a Goal Creates Greatness - 5 Tips

#1 | Take your time for your imagination

You have surely heard before that there are no shortcuts to success. This also applies to the topic of target visualization. If you imagine how you have reached your goals, then take the time for it, which you need. And believe me, you need more than a few seconds if you want to do it right. If you want to do it as fast as possible, you can probably let it go.

You should take at least 10 minutes to visualize your goals. Only in this way can you manage to immerse yourself in the moment and include your subconscious. Fast and a little bit works with many other things in life (e.g. you can probaly eat a burger in 2 minutes and get a stomach ache after that πŸ”). But this doesn’t really work here.

#2 | Constant dripping hollows the stone πŸ’§

If you think that it is done at one time with visualizing goals, then you are completely wrong. πŸ™…β€β™‚ The more often and regularly you do it, the more effective the programming of your subconscious is. With a certain regularity you make it a habit to move your subconscious to support you on the way to your goals.

In fact, it even makes sense that you deal with your goals daily and visualize them. Maybe you just include it in your morning ritual.

#3 | A precise vision is a good vision

If you visualize your goal, then it is important that you get as accurate a picture as possible of what it is like when you have reached it. The more accurate your imagination, the better the visualization and the greater the chance to achieve it.

It is like setting goals. A vague goal does not help you. This also applies to a vague vision of your goal. How else do you want to know at some point whether you have reached it or not?

#4 | Maximum synaesthetic appeal for maximum success. What?

Now, plain language. πŸ˜„ In order to address your subconscious as effectively as possible, your imagination should not only be as accurate as possible, but also complex and realistic. This also means that you address different senses in your imagination.

Try to create the target situation in your imagination as vivid as possible. Try to put yourself correctly into the situation and to dive into it. You should be able to literally see what is happening around you. You should also be able to hear the sounds that surround you when you have reached your goal. You should even be able to smell, taste and feel what this moment will be when you have reached your goal.

This may be difficult for you at first, but I can only advise you to try at least a few times.

#5 | Without path there is no goal

Knowing your goal is important, but almost more important is knowing the way to your goals. For this reason it is important that you do not limit yourself to the moment when you have reached your goals. From this perspective, also take a look back at the most important things that led to you making it.

Such steps or intermediate goals play an important role when it comes to dividing your goal into manageable steps. In order to achieve a goal, you must also consider it achievable. If you have decided that a goal is achievable, then you have gone through the necessary steps in your head long ago. Now it is only a matter of calling the most important of them back into your consciousness and taking the path there.


Visualizing goals is a very effective tool if you want to train your subconscious mind in the long run to support you on your way to your goals. For good reason, this technique is used by some of the best coaches in the world.

If you want to reach your goals and are willing to leave your comfort zone, I can only advise you to give it a try. But be sure to follow the tips described above so that you have the best possible chance of success. Happy trying 😊
