Why do people call upon a higher being when in the grips of a crisis? People who turn to spirituality in some form are able to unburden themselves of many negative feelings or mental obstacles because they intuitively trust in a higher power, something bigger than they are. You can use this psychology to supplement your visionary approach as well.
The visionary approach means imagining yourself as the person you want to be in future or visualizing yourself as achieving goals that you are aiming for. Psychological research papers have emphasized the powerful effects of adopting a visionary approach on the successful achievement of objectives. Synchronizing frequent spirituality with your vision can result in an emotional wave of energy that pushes you even closer to your dream or goal.
Spirituality does not have to be specifically religious, but it does play a significant role in our accomplishments. This is because of our traditional beliefs in religions and higher powers. Spirituality allows one to attract positive energy, and positive energy can perform wonders in our personal and social lives. Regardless of how you seek it, spirituality could be a powerful part of your success plan.
Spirituality stimulates our mind and activates the cognitive functions of our brain to think in a constructive sense. It persuades our minds to develop concerns for values, positive feelings, and consequences of actions. These help you determine if your goal is morally and ethically justified, and instills the actions necessary to realize your goal. A healthy spirituality allows us to see the world and our place in it from a larger perspective, that there are many roads and many paths, and that we are not alone on our path. This encourages a sense of optimism. A positive perspective changes everything and facilitates more positive changes.
You do not need to believe in God to be spiritual but you need to believe in something bigger than yourself. Believe the universe has your back as Gabby Bernstein says.
None of these studies are implying that you have to be religious to be successful.
The belief and trust in a higher power and the sense of community that come with a religious or spiritual group are powerful factors in supporting people toward success. Find something that speaks to you, that gives you the positive energy, emotional encouragement, and steadfast support essential to your journey.
