Create your Results in Advance with the Power of Visualization


This episode, this show, is going to be something that you can immediately take away. You’re going to get better even while you listen to this because there’s going to be exercises, there’s going to be demonstrations. You’ll be able to take those and immediately apply them as soon as this thing is over. You’re going to be able to improve your performance right away, regardless of the sport or if it’s in business or if it’s just going out and enjoying a relaxing dinner with friends or family. If you learn to see the results that you want in advance, you have a significantly greater chance of fulfilling that outcome and those intentions as well as enjoying yourself far more on this beautiful journey of ours.

When I talk about creating our results in advance, I’m talking about the power of visualization; the tool, the habit. Sometimes I call it a champion habit. If you look throughout time, you will hear the best players of the five major sports, in track and field, in the Olympics, you will hear them all talking about how they sit down and they mentally rehearse. They use positive mental imagery. They visualize. Whatever they specifically like to call it, it doesn’t matter. It’s all about creating pictures and movies in our minds of how we want ourselves to perform. Here’s the best news of all. You already know how to do it. You create pictures all the time whether you’re aware of it or not. It’s all about learning how to channel it and how to maximize it and that’s what this episode is going to be about. I’m going to teach you not only ways to improve it and make it more impactful but also a step by step process that’s going to tell your brain, “This isn’t a daydream. This isn’t fantasy. This is something I specifically want to create. Now, go out there and create it for me.”

Visualization: You’re still able to visualize and get just as much results out of it by sitting down and focusing on the process.

One other thing I want to bring up too is some people might be saying, “I don’t visualize. I can’t make pictures.” I’m that way too. I have a very challenging time. Some people aren’t that visual, in fact I’m very kinesthetic. If you just get a sense of knowing that this is happening in your body, that’s my recommendation to you. An example of, “I can’t visualize.” I want you to go ahead and close your eyes and think of what color of shirt you’re wearing or someone you saw today. What color of the shirt are they wearing? You just know, right? You know that it’s burgundy. You know that it’s green. Just because you can’t make very clear and picture-perfect pictures in your head, you’re still able to visualize and get just as much results out of it by sitting down and focusing on the process. Don’t just see it; feel it and we’ll get into all those steps later on. A little demonstration to really show how big of a difference, how big of a deal this habit is, what I want you to do is I want you to stand up. I do this all the time that speak and all the different classes and the workshops that I run. I have everybody stand up. If you’re driving, you’re not going to be able to do this. Come back to this later because you will see in a matter of 90 seconds how powerful visualization is.

What I want you do now you’re standing up, put your feet together. I want you to stick your right arm right in front of you with your index finger pointing straight out. I want you to comfortably, slowly, turn to the right as comfortably as you can go. When you get all the way to the very end as far as you can stretch, make sure those feet are staying together, very important. When you turn as far as you can go, I want you to stick a mental snapshot, where you end up on the wall or what tree are you pointing at or wherever you are right now. Just take a quick mental snapshot. Come back around. Drop your arm and just close your eyes. Just imagine doing that same thing again with your arm up. Imagine that arm is up. Imagine you’re turning all the way to the right as far as you can, but imagine this time that you’re able to go two feet further, two feet further than you actually went. Once you get there, uncoil yourself, come back around and see yourself, feel yourself, do it again. Do a little playful energy now, a little bit excitement. How far can I go this time? This time I want you to go two feet even further. Now it’s four feet past the way you pointed. Playfully go all the way there.

Once you get there, uncoil yourself, and come back around. One last time, real playfully, go three extra feet on top of that. Now, seven feet. When you’re spinning all the way around to the right, you’re like Bugs Bunny. You’re coiled up your past 360 degrees, am I right? Have that big smile on your face, just enjoying how silly this all is. See yourself all the way, seven feet further than you actually pointed. Uncoil yourself, unwrap yourself and come back around. Open your eyes. Keep those feet together. Right hand back up, index finger pointing straight ahead, comfortably turn as far as you can to the right. I’m guessing you went at least 25% further. Of all the times that I’ve done this, dozens and dozens of times of doing this in demonstrations, nearly everyone goes at least 25% further and you didn’t warm-up, you didn’t stretch. All you did was set a course. You set a direction in your brain. Your brain when it visualizes something, it doesn’t know what’s real or what’s not real. When your brain sees yourself that this is what it’s capable of, this is what’s possible, it just goes ahead and tells your body, “We can do this, go ahead.” 25% further, just like that. Now, you understand how just in a matter of minutes, how much you can improve your performance, how you can get your body to do things that you couldn’t do minutes ago just by closing your mind and seeing those results in advance.

We talk about the Beast system. We talk about what animal do we use to anchor this in so that we always remember it? With the Beast, we talk about the Canadian goose. When I first learned this system and these principles, I was like, “What, Canadian goose?” We’ve learned about a crocodile and a lion and even an armadillo. They all make sense to the principle, but what does a Canadian goose have to do with visualizing? They walked me through and they said, “What’s the shape in the sky that the geese fly?” I go, “That’s easy, that’s obvious, it’s a V. Is that it?” They said, “Do you know why they fly in a V?” “I don’t know, it looks cool.” “No, because it creates less resistance in the air.” The lead goose, he’s flying, he’s taking the brunt with the force and all the other geese, they’re just drafting off of him. When the lead goose he gets real tired, he just slips and falls in the back of the line and the next one steps on up. When the geese fly in their V, when they’re migrating long distances, when they fly in the V, it gets them there the fastest, the most efficient and the easiest way by flying with the V. Our V is visualization because when we take the time to make this a daily habit, a champion habit, of seeing our results in advance, it gets us there the fastest, the easiest, the most efficient way possible to.

What’s the name that we use for the Canadian goose to help us remember, to trigger us into visualizing our results in advance? It is VALDEPA. Within VALDEPA is a very important piece of the clue to what we also need to understand and know when we’re taking the time to do the habit of visualizing. VALDEPA stands for: VAL, the value creates the desire, the DE, which produces the power to achieve. What that means is we put and attach things to these images and these movies that we’re making, when we attach what’s important to them, that’s what creates that fire or that desire deep inside. We’re going to go out there and we’re going to do whatever it takes. Why is it so important that you produce, that you create this movie in your head? That is going to give you the motivation, the driving force to do whatever needs to be done to make this happen.

I know you’re beginning to see and understand, beginning to trust in me that this is a tool used in all different types of sports to get the results that they want. In fact one of the stories that I always share with my one-on-one clients is a study that they did that took a bunch of people and they had them shoot a hundred free throws. They recorded how many free throws they make out of a hundred. They took all the people who participated in those hundred free throws and then broke them up into three groups. For the next 30 days, they gave each group different set of instructions.

The first group, “You get to shoot and practice a hundred free throws every single day on the court.” The second group, they said, “You don’t get to touch a ball this month for the next 30 days. All you’re going to do is visualize a hundred free throws every single day for the next 30 days.” Then the third group, they got to do half and half; 50 free throws on the court, 50 free throws in their mind’s eye. After 30 days, obviously group three won out. They made not only the biggest improvement over time, but also they made the most out of a hundred after 30 days. What was interesting was that group one and group two, the ones who actually spend every day practicing free throws and the ones who didn’t even touch a ball, all they did was visualize shooting free throws, their improvement as well as their total free throws that they hit were even. It almost doesn’t even make a difference if you actually practice or if you just practice it in your mind. The results, the level that you will improve are just about even. If you combine the two together, that’s when the magic happens.

Another great story that I like to share, the POW in Vietnam; a man who was a prisoner of war for somewhere between five and seven years. Every day, poor guy stuck in a hole. All he would do is he would zone out and he would imagine himself on his hometown golf course and he would play one round of golf, every single stroke. He would imagine that every single day for those five to seven years. He would play every stroke, every hole and he would have the pins change. He would have different wind conditions and rain and whatever else. He would just make up the different changes in the environment and he would play every single day, one round of golf. This has been documented and told by a lot of people. He came back home and after those seven years, in his first day on the golf course, he shot 20 strokes better than he’d ever shot before at home.

Visualization: We’re already creating images that we’re moving towards. Now it’s time to take conscious control.

Unbelievable, the power of the mind, the power of this tool that we all have, that we are already using. We’re already creating images that we’re moving towards every single day. Now it’s time to take conscious control and to use them intentionally. That’s what the full force is all about. You align what you need towards this vision. Once you add in the visualization, it only speeds up the process on how fast you’re going to get to that goal, that target, that destination that you want.

I remember back in 2007. 2007 was my first year that I really not only started using this as a daily habit but I started using the game ready, which maybe you’ve heard on other podcasts, something that I’ll definitely go through step-by-step at the end. The five, seven-minute visualization that lets your brain know, “This is how I expect to play.” Up until then, I’d close my eyes and I would imagine a few pitches or at-bats. It wasn’t until 2007 that I sat down every single day, was taught the game ready and made it a daily habit. I was going to see at least five at-bats. I was going to see all five at-bats from tonight’s game in advance. I was going to see the ball that I was going to take. I was going to see the pitches. That the pitcher’s made a mistake and I was going to crush it. What it’s going to look like when I hit the sweet spot on my bat and how I was going to feel, how that vibration when you connect with the baseball and you don’t feel anything. How was that nothing going to feel? I follow through and feel myself floating around the bases like a little kid, a big smile on my face. I started seeing these things every single day for the first time and the results on the field, it was my best season to-date by far.

In fact I tell along with another principle sometimes about the time late in the summer when I got injured. I missed a week. It had me put on the disable list. It was at the time where I was on fire and I was afraid. I was so nervous because it was my chance to maybe getting called up, it was coming in ten days. I was so nervous that I was going to lose my timing because that’s what happens, especially at the professional level. When you’re used to going out there and playing every single day, you miss two or three days, you sit out for that time, there’s a great chance you’re going to lose your timing. You’ll go out seven days, for sure it’s going to happen. You’re going to lose your timing.

When I got put on the disable list, I knew it was going to be seven days. I had a broken finger and I couldn’t take swings in the cage even. What I did was I had this thought that instead of just visualizing five at-bats every day, what if since I wasn’t in the game, what if I came and sat down on the bench just for a couple of minutes, every top half of the inning and visualize those five at-bats. What if at the bottom half of the inning, I went back there and just closed my eyes for just a second, a couple of minutes and visualize another five at-bats? What if I did that for all nine innings? What could I do to my mechanics? What could I do to my timing? Could I actually improve myself, improve my timing over these next seven days, if I committed to do a hundred at-bats every single day? When you really think about it, when you think you can see one pitch a second, it only takes 500 seconds to see 500 pitches. 500 pitches in my mind, that’s more than a hundred at-bats. What is 500 seconds? It’s less than ten minutes. Anyone has got ten minutes, especially if you want to be the best of the best. If you want to be as good as you could possibly be. You’ve got ten minutes to put in that dedication on a daily basis.

There’s some times in life where your back is up to the wall and you really find out what you’re willing to put forth to make your dream happen or to keep your dream alive. You want to talk to some of my friends, to some of my teammates, to myself, about what happens when you get to certain points in your career and you’re no longer that hot prospect anymore and you are doing whatever you need to do to keep enjoying and living the dream, to support your family. I remember 2012 being the big year where I was falling off the radar. I couldn’t get a job going into spring training anymore. I had to call up and get my own job at an independent league. I remember that off-season that the two or three years before, I wasn’t hitting home runs anymore. The physical toll of my body, my shoulders and my hips, my swing path, through the zone, it didn’t have that little uppercut anymore, that lift that made it really easy to hit home runs for me.

I had to figure out, I’ll send this swing that I had been working on. My one swing in my entire life, it was a swing that would just maul the ball. I’d hit my doubles and I’d hit some home runs just because I was such a big and strong guy. I wasn’t a home run hitter anymore. I knew, to continue my career, to get myself back on track and to maybe get into some leagues where I could take care of my family, I knew I had to make changes. I knew being 32, 33 years old that changes by going out there and putting in the physical work wasn’t going to be enough. Millions and millions of swings had engrained. It was a strong habit the way I swung the bat. I really believe that through my mind, I could change my mechanics and I could take a step back and go through slow motion exercises and begin to change how my bat path went through the zone, compensate, and redesign my swing around my injury so I can get some lift on the ball. I knew most importantly that it was going to come through what I saw in my mind. Anything that you create in the external world first must happen in your internal world.

I remember getting into some books that off-season and reading more about visualization. I remember I said it’s a difficult tool. I want to start easy. Maybe it’s ideal you want to spend ten minutes or twenty minutes visualizing every day. Don’t be too tough on yourself. Start small. Maybe it’s three minutes, maybe it’s five minutes. In my brain, here’s a super achiever mind. I was like, “I’m going to do for 45 minutes every morning and 45 minutes before I go to bed every night. I’m going to master this idea of visualizing.”

Visualization: If you want to be as good as you can possibly be, you don’t leave things to chance.

The other day I started reading this book called Relentless. It talks about the difference between good, great and unstoppable. In fact, the man who writes about it is a personal trainer. He trained probably two of the greatest competitors of all time: Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. In fact, Michael Jordan hand-selected this man. He hunted him down and said, “You are the best. Not only am I going to hire you to train me, I’m going to pay you so that you don’t train anybody else.” What this man talks about is just the relentlessness that you go after. If you want to be as good as you can possibly be, you don’t leave things to chance. You don’t blame other people. You don’t depend on other people. You go out there and do everything that you could possibly do.

That’s why I found myself for a couple of months visualizing an hour and a half every day because I was at a place where I could not get another job. I knew I had to go out in this independent league and I had to put up numbers better than I have ever done in my career if I was going to get another chance. For months and months, 90 minutes a day and I would do slow motion swings every day. I do my practice sessions. It’s a full-time gig trying to change both of my swings. Don’t forget I’m a switch hitter and I had to learn how to do it from both sides. That’s what happened. I had watched videos of other guys. At the time I was really into watching the swing of Prince Fielder and watching how his hands came through the zone and how he finished his swing.

After spending a very long time on changing my stroke, I go off into this new league. I went Player of the Month. Pretty much every offensive category, I lead the league in the first month except for maybe triples. I definitely even led the strike outs. It’s important too, sometimes. The home runs and the doubles were there at a pace that I hadn’t done in years. Then I went off and instead of signing back in the state, I found out it was time to go to Mexico and make the money that I needed to make to take care of my family. I went down there and get the same thing; I put up the same type of numbers. Then I went off and I played in the Winter Leagues. Something I’ve done for many, many years but I went down there, this time, I finished second in the league in home runs, first in doubles, on base percentage at the very top, slugging percentage at the very top. In fact, when you combine the two for the OPS, I led the league.

When I look back at the end of the year hitting 38 home runs and basically about 120 or 130 games, but I have never done that in my career. I know it all came down to not only that off-season I spent visualizing with that hour and a half every day, but I kept that habit throughout the season. I didn’t maintain that amount of time. Instead of those five at-bats that I told you, that was my daily habit through most of my career, visualizing five at-bats. Now, I was visualizing 30, 40 at-bats every day, because my back was up to the wall and I was going to do whatever I had to. When you compare even those results, those two mega-seasons that I had, I hear that I put in five, six times amount into my visualizing. My numbers were far, far significant. My confidence levels were that much better. They were five times better as well. What you put in to your visualization is not only the amount of time but the quality and the intensity that you put into it. You are going to reap that reward on the field and the more you do it, the more time you dedicate to visualizing, the more you’re going to reap the rewards of it in your sport or in that area of your life as well.

One last little tidbit that I want to give you about creating an effective visualization, I’m going to get into a lot of little steps here. We’ll talk about submodalities. First I want to tell you about during in my career, I told you lots of stories about my plane and I’m big believer when it came to my sports performance in this power of visualization. I want to share with you my transition out of the game and when I started this business. I started many of the different things that I do; to have the podcast, I do one-on-one coaching, I do group and team coaching, I do these workshops, I do speaking. There are a lot of little different things that I’ve had to prepare for over time.

When it came to starting this business, the fears and the uncertainty of not doing anything like it before, I started off just like I wanted to, just how I did during my career. I would lay myself down. I would visualize how I wanted a meeting to go or a call to go. I was doing that for several months and I wasn’t seeing the same type of results in my visualizations. At first it was confusing, then it got uncomfortable. The more I did it, the more uncomfortable visualizing became. It got to the point where eventually I started to not like it, which then stunk some more because now I’m starting to go around and speak and work with athletes. I’m talking about visualizing but also in the back of my mind I’m going, “It’s really not working for me to grow my business.” I feel a little bit like a hypocrite. It was a very confusing time for a few months. It went on that way to the point where I ended up stopped visualizing every day because it bothered me. I didn’t like it and I wasn’t getting any results.

Visualization: I started picturing images and things all of a sudden start happening out of the blue.

What was interesting was I moved out to Florida and I started going on these walks every day. I get back into this daily habit of listening to this one audio program and it talks about visualizing. It walks you through a couple of steps. It wasn’t the normal game ready that I was used to doing but I was going along with it and peaceful walks. I started picturing images and things all of a sudden start happening out of the blue. The normal standard results that I’m used to from visualizing started happening. I’m like, “What is the difference?” As time went along, this is what I discovered. This is important especially if you’re someone who, A) says, “I never visualized before,” or B) maybe you said, “I tried it, it doesn’t work for me. It’s not for me.” You definitely might have something to learn from the story then. I know this tool can work for anybody and it should work for anybody.

What I discovered was when I played baseball I was already pretty confident. Anytime I imagine myself in future situations or even if it was a bigger task or a bigger game or I was facing a guy who was nastier than I’ve ever faced in my career, I had a sense of a foundation of being confident and expecting to do all anyway. This feeling, these energies are in my body and they’re beginning to be linked to these images of the future, these movies of the future. When I step into these moments and I see that guy for real, this trigger, this anchor, these feelings of certainty and confidence, they immediately come out.

When I first started visualizing in my business, I’m thinking of meetings. I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to do, I had never done any of these stuff before, I’m nervous, I’m uncertain, I’m scared and I’m fearful. You get those bad feelings in your stomach. I’m trying to mentally picture myself succeeding and feeling confident but yet in body I feel horrible. What am I really doing? When I picture these scenes in my mind, I’m just linking more uncomfortable and unconfident feelings to them. Now when I actually see them in real life, what shows up, what’s triggered is me feeling uncomfortable.

What was different when I went to Florida? I’m on a walk. My body’s engaged in a different way. I’m enjoying the beauty of this park that I walk in every day and the water, the pond, the turtles that pop up and poke their heads out every day. I’m enjoying everything. I’m in a great mood. I’m breathing deep. My body, my shoulders and my back and my head is up. I’m in a confident posture. Now, my brain is thinking about the calls that I need to make. The new speaking thing that I’ve got next week and what I’m going to say, what I’m going to do when I’m in this strong great peak state body posture. This confidence, this energy whether I’m walking and I’m moving, is getting linked to these images now. When I fly there the next week, I see the crowd that I envisioned, I see them all and I’m triggered to this amazing feeling, these amazing sensations that I rehearsed and felt in the park when I was thinking of these pictures. That link is there and it got anchored and just was triggered as soon as I saw that visual picture I had practiced.

One of the things I have them do with one-on-one clients when we’re doing the game ready and the visualization is to create the strong body posture. I actually have them stand up putting their hands on their hips like the superhero pose, breathing deep and strong, creating this great body posture, these great feelings in their body and then beginning to walk them through the game ready attaching the performances that they want to have so that they got this great energy in their body. They’re linking it out of these performances that they want. When they step on that field, in that quarter, in that office, whatever it is, these great feelings naturally come out. That’s a little bit of a step. How we want to feel is an important thing that I call as submodality going forward. What I wanted to teach you were some of the other ones, some of the visual ones, even an auditory one. I can make this own podcast talking about the hundreds of different submodalities that you could tweak and utilize to intensify the emotions that you want to during these visualizations.

Visualization: Majority of people want to feel more confident or more focused, more determined, more motivated, more joyful, more happy.

The majority of people that I work with, they want to feel more confident or they want to be able to feel more focused, more determined, more motivated, more joyful, more happy. Regardless of whatever that is, maybe pick one of those right now. Maybe you want to pick love. Love is such an easy one to get an intense feeling or a less intense feeling. Go ahead and think of something now. Maybe someone that you truly love, maybe even an animal or a pet that you love. What I want you to do is I want you to go ahead and imagine. If it’s a picture, make it a movie and see if this movie makes it more intense or less intense or maybe just neutral. See if it makes it more intense if you turn it into a movie. Again, what if you make this movie even bigger? If you make it bigger now, does that make it more intense or less intense, these sensations of love in your body? What if you make it brighter? If you go ahead and you make it brighter, does it make it more intense or less intense?

If it’s a movie that makes it feel stronger in your body, which is going to be the majority of people, probably nearly 90%, they like making movies, it’s better than a picture. Go ahead and take this movie and imagine that you’re pulling it in, you’re zooming it in closer to your face. See if that makes it more intense or less intense. What if you take this movie and you move it further away from you out in the distance? Does that make it more intense or less intense? What about any sounds? Are there sounds that go along with it? What if there’s a knob? You had a knob there, a dialed knob, and you turn it up louder, you crank up the volume of the sound. Does that make it more intense for you or less intense?

We talked a little bit about having those strong feelings in your body, linking them to this picture of this movie. Go ahead. Where do you feel this emotion? If it’s love, where do you feel it? Is it in your head, heart, your belly? Wherever it is, if you make it grow, if you imagine that this area or this feeling in your body is getting even larger, now it’s spreading down to your fingers and your toes, does that make it more intense or less intense? Now, you have an idea, some extra little things that you can do when I walk you through the game ready that’s going to make the emotions that you wander in it, that you want to attach to this visualization, this movie, to make it even more intense. When you step into that scenario in the future, these feelings, these sensations are going to automatically show up. Be triggered and you’re going to know that you can do it.

Let’s go ahead and begin the game ready. First we’re going to set an outcome. What is the ultimate outcome that you want out of this event, this game, this situation? Whatever it is, decide on an outcome. Then I want you to create two to three intentions. Who do you need to be to achieve this outcome? That’s an intention. What do you need to do to create this outcome? It’s another great intention. Who do you need to be and what do you need to do? These are going to be our intentions. Think of two or three. When you got them, we’re going to go ahead and we’re going to get grounded in the power of gratitude. Gratitude is an amazing emotion. It’s the gate to our creativity. When we take the time to really be thankful and grateful for the things that are going on in our life, we just attract more things to be grateful for.

If you’re one of those people, “I don’t have anything to be grateful for right now. Nothing’s working.” just be grateful for the simplest things work as well; your ears that could hear this or even your heart. Think of your heart for a minute. It beats a 100,000 times a day or something. It has never stopped beating your entire life. Even before you were born, it was beating. It’s never taken a break. It’s never given up on you. Be blessed, be thankful for that. Feel that gratitude grow now.

Now that you’re grounded in that power, go ahead and close your eyes. See your gate. You are the designer. You are the architect of this gate. When you have it, go ahead and walk through it and come into this beautiful place of nature. Maybe it’s a place you’ve been to before or a place you’ve just created in your mind right now or it’s a combination of both. Whatever it is, this is your place, your paradise, your special place, just breathe it in and just enjoy it, the beauty. Look around this amazing special place. Just hear the sounds that are going out there. Maybe turn those sounds up a little bit louder, if that works for you. Just feel what you feel in this place. Feel happy, calm, relaxed, excited, grateful, proud, and confident. Just feel what you feel in this place. Just take the time to appreciate how beautiful it is because nature loves to be appreciated. When you take that time to appreciate nature, it fills you up with this juice, this energy, that you can turn around and put into directly to things that you’re passionate about to help you create and to succeed.

Visualization: Imagine that you’re blowing away any fears, any doubts, any worries, any stress.

Take a big deep breath in. Fill that belly up with air and just exhale it all out. Do it one more time when you breathe in. When you blow out this time, I want you to just imagine that you’re blowing away any fears, any doubts, any worries, any stress. Blow out anything that does not serve you in this moment being your very best. Go ahead now and I want you to see your second gate.
