Glue a bunch of photos onto a piece of cardboard, sit and stare at it and all our financial woes are solved, right?

Now I’m not saying that visualization exercises are total crap. Rather, it’s the way many people assume how it works. Visualization is merely a tool to help you accomplish whatever result you’re putting action towards. In other words, it gives you something to help motivate you by keeping your goals and dreams at the forefront of your mind.
There’s a really fascinating article from Psychology Today talking about the power of visualization where studies have shown that visualization is a powerful way to train your brain for the results you want to achieve in your life. In financial terms, you’re training your brain to help you successfully negotiate a work contract, save more money or even to afford the house of your dreams.
