Visualizing success has been scientifically proven to PREVENT success. You’re brain will be fooled into feeling sated with success, and so you wont feel the motivational pressure of urgent need to take concrete real life actions. Visualization is good for muscle memory, not for psychologically feeling like a winner and therefore magically becoming one. Winning happens by actions over time – it’s not related to muscle memory and it is not a matter of a special feeling. Win first, feel later.

There is a tight analogy to game.  It’s tough approaching pretty women – I’m still kicking myself over the stunner I passed by yesterday, barely able to maintain eye contact as I was too flustered due to her being overwhelmingly pretty.  So for such situations the advice heard is often “fake it until you make it”.

There is also the advice “count to three and do it”.

Psychological development is important, but you can’t make it by faking it.  You make it by actions.  Aping alpha characteristics in order to elicit certain responses, waiting until the day that the alpha sinks in and is just who you really are doesn’t really always work for everyone.  They are left feeling disconnected, hollow, and shallow.  An actor on a stage they don’t respect.

Aping alpha characteristics and actions and taking steps for real personal development are very different and lead to different results.

Entrepreneurialism and dating women are closely related, and can even overlap.  One improvement builds upon the other, and you start at the foundation.

You don’t start by visualizing success.  You start by developing your self and your personal circumstances, and by making your own mistakes.
