Out of our 5 senses, the ones that resonates with most people are visual and audio. The reason for this is that we mainly think by using images in our minds. When we are feeling happy, it is because we are focusing on pictures in our minds that are bright and full of color. When we are feeling sad, it is because we are focusing on dark or grayed out images. For this reason, motivational videos can be truly powerful when it comes to inspiring people to make some sort of a change in their lives.
The reason why most of us see and hear these inspirational videos and get inspired. It causes us to create images in our minds of the feelings being portrayed. The powerful aspect of this is when it actually starts to influence what we picture in our minds even after we are finished watching the movie. We can see the negative effect of this as well. When teenagers watch movies that depict violence and anger, often times they will have these images of these feelings in their minds and that will cause them to display those actions and emotions. So what’s the point of this?
The point is that you can use the power of motivation videos to your advantage. You see, when you watch movie or clips of people overcoming intense obstacles and achieving extraordinary things, you will start to see yourself doing the same in your mind. The famous saying, “What the mind can conceive and believe, it will achieve” explains this well. When you start to believe that you can do something through constant exposure of images of success, your actions will be effected by it. When you start taking actions that move you towards your goals and dreams, it’s only a matter of time that it will become a reality.
Is just watching these inspiration videos enough to accomplish your goals? Of course not. You have to take the feeling and belief that they can provide for you and use it to fuel you passion and desire. It is only when you have a strong desire and an unshakable belief in yourself that you can obtain your desired outcome. These videos, like most other external resources are nothing but tools to help motivate you to take action in the right direction. When you learn how to use them correctly and efficiently, you will obtain your goals a lot quicker. The next time you see a video that causes you to have greater belief in yourself, use it often to help motivate you to achieve your goals.
