"I train myself mentally with visualisation. The morning of a tournament before I put my feet on the floor, I visualise myself making perfect runs with emphasis on technique, all the way through to what my personal best is in practice... The more you work with this type of visualisation, especially when you do it on a day-to-day basis, you'll actually begin to feel your muscles contracting at the appropriate times."
Camille Duvall, Waterskier
Visualisation is one of the most powerful techniques we have - I use it myself regularly in both sport and business, for example in order to practice my swimming without the pool I visualise how I want my arms to move, how the elbows come out of the water, where my hand goes into the water and the length of the stroke. When I'm out running and feeling tired I visualise a race and think about the finish line and immediately my pace picks back up.
