Visualizing your best possible self involves two important steps and has been shown to increase your feelings of happiness and well-being.
First you have to visualize how the “future you” will look when you have achieved your goals and second by identifying the characteristics you need to use (or learn) to get you to where you want to be.
You have to begin by imagining yourself in the future, when you have gotten to where you want to be. Pick a few goals and imagine that you have achieved them. Make sure they’re personally meaningful, not external markers of status.
Visualize what this future-you is like. Imagine all the details of what success looks like. For example if you are an artist what does success look like for you? How much do you work? What do you create? How do you feel about your work? Then write down this scenario and imagine what characteristics you will need to use to get you there. For example, becoming a successful artist probably requires things like perseverance, creativity, patience, and energy.
