Questions 4 - 7
relate to the passage given below:
Visualization is the three-dimensional, multicolored, singing-and-dancing
version of affirmations that enables the subconscious to prefigure future
achievement or success. It is a basic and fundamental human attribute, and one
that can literally be the difference between surviving and not surviving.
When Victor Frankl, the Freudian psychologist, was examining the
discriminating factors that enabled him, and many like him, to survive in the
hell of the Nazi concentration camps, the key factor was the ability to
visualize. All survivors had a vision of something beyond their current
suffering, something more worthwhile, and something worth hanging on for.
This underlines the importance of each individual having a vision of
something, outside and larger than herself, that gives her life some meaning.
The very existence of a mission lifts the eyes to something more meaningful and
enduring - and in so doing provides something to live for - at times when quiet
surrender could be an attractive option. Such a vision gives a further raison
d'etre for integrity, by providing a purpose that binds together the core values
that make up self-worth.
One of the most powerful - and difficult to achieve - applications of
visualization is to focus your mind daily on the person you intend to become.
Create a clear mental picture of that person - and see it in full color, and add
sounds and smells, if they are appropriate. The emotional values you add to the
visualization are vital in making the full connection to your subconscious,
which acts only on thoughts that are mixed with emotions. These techniques are,
of course, widely validated in fields like sport and business, where the peak
performers are nearly all visualizes. They all see, feel, and fully experience
their success before they achieve it.
