Do We Create Future Memories of Success?
What is a future memory of success?
When you take a few minutes to think about what you are going to do over the weekend, you’re actually visualizing success with something in the future.
Many ultra successful people use a process of waking dreaming (communly called visualization) to actually create future memories of success that then drive their actions.
What is a future memory?
A waking dream starts out as a daydream, or visualization. But each time the visualization is revisited, the neural networks associated with it are physically strengthened.
Eventually, if the dvisualization is repeated enough, what started out as a daydream becomes a dominant vision of a future memory. The key word here is DOMINANT.
You can bet that all successful people started out with their own collection of personal fears, doubts, and perceived limitations. But as their dream was encoded into their brain cells through repetition, it gradually became more dominant than their fears and doubts.
Soon the neural network holding their dream is stable enough to totally override those old fears and doubts. This is NOT a made-up scenario. It is solidly based on modern neuroscience.
Think about that for a moment. This is a powerful key to success. BUT here’s what you have to remember: Every repeated thought builds its own strong physical neural networks. This is why it is so important to consciously use this process to build future memories of success — not failure.
