A study was conducted on 30 basketball players. 10 were asked to practice one hour daily for a month on specific shots. Another 10 were asked to practice mentally making the same shots for an hour each day for a month. The last 10 were asked not to practice and to do nothing for a month.
· The group that didn’t practice showed no improvement.
· The group that practiced the shots daily saw an improvement of 24% .
· The group that practiced mentally improved equally 24%!
They were given one Simple instruction, “Practice mentally making baskets”.
They had all made baskets before so they all had a “common frame of reference for success”.
Visualization is controlled by our subconscious inner thoughts. The simple key: Feed your subconscious with the right thoughts.
