    Identify the goal you want to visualize—for example, walking a golf course. Find a comfortable place to sit and relax. Eliminate all distractions—turn off the phone, television, etc. Close your eyes and focus on feeling relaxed. Free your mind of intruding thoughts. Now, imagine yourself on the golf course. Create a picture in your mind of the place—the sights, sounds, and smells. Imagine a perfect day, warm and sunny, with a gentle breeze. Picture yourself with your favorite golfing friends, talking and laughing. Now visualize yourself starting on your way, passing the golf carts, and setting off to walk the whole course. Take a moment to feel the pleasure and excitement of achieving this goal.
    Then imagine yourself walking from hole to hole, enjoying the sunshine, the views, the fresh air, the good company and excellent play.
    Finally, visualize yourself finishing the course and feeling great, both physically and emotionally.
