In the early 1980s, people looked at you as if you were very weird when speaking of preparing through visualization. Congo began instructing us to engage in this powerful technique to program our mind for success. He taught that our mind is unable to tell the difference between a real and imagined event. Interestingly, he received very low grades in Psychology courses at Kansas State. Perhaps his answers were correct!

We were to lay in bed two nights before every race, visualizing the upcoming race. First, we are to see ourselves arriving at the meet, in our meet sweats and uniforms; then unload from the bus with calmness and confidence. We continued visualizing warming-up, and lining up at the starting line maintaining our calm, confident attitude. Congo then instructed us to visualize racing the course to the best of our ability, including half mile and mile splits. This was followed by a strong finish, running through the finish line, exerting all of our available effort on that day. He explained how this enabled us to arrive and race with confidence, absent nervousness; since we had successfully ran the race in our mind.

The Bible says, as a man thinks in heart, in his inner belief, so is he. Congo intuitively taught us to implement Biblical success principles. Visualizing is etching one’s desires on the stone of your heart and mind. Etching in your heart and mind, like etching in physical stone, is virtually permanent, due the commitment; and requires great effort. It is impossible for a double minded person to etch in either stone or using visualization. When Jesus sent the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, God’s law became written on our hearts. These writings on the heart influence our every thought and consequential words and actions. Similarly, visualizing our goals, internalizing them by etching on our hearts and minds; influences our every thought.

What are you visualizing? Are you visualizing success in correlation with scripture? Are you beginning to understand the damaging effects of visualizing any thought or activity in disagreement with the Bible?
