Have you heard about the basketball experiment that proved you can vastly improve your chances for success by visualising the results you want? No?! Well, a psychologist named Alan Richardson split a group of basketball players into 3 groups:
- The first group practiced free-throws for 20 minutes a day.
- The second group visualised themselves making successful free-throws everyday, but didn’t physically practice.
- The third group didn’t practice or visualise – they did NADA!
Richardson found that the visualisation group VASTLY improved in their free-throwing ability, and were almost as good as the group who practiced daily!
