It does help
- Yes it does work, I studied to become a personal trainer and one of the courses included teaching us to use visualization which does work 100%

yes, it helps
- I used to compete in biathlon (skiing & target shooting) and we would use imagery to to calm our breathing and "see" the target. I do think it works, but you need to practice over and over.

Barriers; inherent part of Visualization
- Really enjoyed the article, however through my extensive research about sports psychology and the mental game, barrier recognition is a vital part to an athlete's success. I work with not only athletes, but non athletes as well talking about the entire visualization process.
