These are wonderfully inspiring studies that you've shared, Stephanie. In this day and age I'm continually amazed by the number of folks who do not believe in the creative power of their own thinking.

It's up to those of us who know better to continue to share proof like this so that personal responsibility becomes the norm.

Wow didn't know this. This is indeed very fascinating. I will read the report right now. I think this is something that most people would not believe without a proof.
Awesome post!


Hi, I know this is an old post, but wanted to comment on it. I found your post from a Google search for "mental rehearsal". I was looking for the basis of the idea that mental rehearsal has some kind of real effect, and the study you cited adds weight to that. Assuming that mental rehearsal "works" because the mind/body doesn't know the different between a "real" experience and an imagined experience, then this could also be a key to self-sabotage routines it's just that the type of experience one is rehearsing is a harmful one rather than a helpful one. What do you think of this idea that self-sabotage can enter your psychology through the doorway of harmful mental rehearsal?
