Unlike the videotape, you may forget to erase the previous information. So the videotape in your mind is composed of many layers of words, images, experiences and much more. When your life’s experiences are recorded on to this mind tape, you normally consider that to be fixed, as part of your ‘personality’. However, visualisation helps you to challenge the notion that your personality is a set defined structure. Visualisation takes your mind’s videotape and allows you to stop the tape, erase some of it, re-record, and so on.

When you have seen what is possible, you can work back to the present and see what you need to change in order to achieve your 1-year vision, 3-month vision, or whatever. It allows you to rehearse a situation. Think of any situation in life where you have performed badly or indifferently. What would happen if you had a second chance? For example, what if you had an opportunity to erase the impression in the minds of the interviewers and rerun an interview? You would probably have performed better the second time round.

Instead of just guessing which sources of stress are more frequent or more severe, keep a record of them for several consecutive days – a week if you can manage it – including days when you are at work and off work. Make several photocopies of the record form on page 28. Fill one in each day for a typical week, recording any significant sources of stress and your usual responses (either good or bad). For example, a ‘bad’ response or behaviour might be that you drove your car too fast after a row with a member of the practice team, or you lost your temper inappropriately after a succession of interruptions to your work.
