More From My Conversation With Joanna Grover About Her Book the Choice Point

Joanna Grover’s passion for equestrianism came with a heavy price – a life-changing injury. As she lay awake during her painful recovery, she searched for a way to silence the negative chatter in her mind. Luckily, as a cognitive behavioral therapist, she stumbled upon an unexpected twist in her journey – functional imagery training (FIT). Working with Dr. Jonathan Rhodes, they adapted this technique to help others overcome their negative thought patterns and achieve their goals. In their book, The Choice Point, they share their science-backed method for harnessing the power of imagination to transform lives. Discover how this twist in Joanna’s journey can help you achieve your own personal breakthrough.

FIT – Functional Imagery Training

Do you ever find yourself stuck in unproductive thought patterns, unable to move past them and achieve your goals? Functional Imagery Training (FIT) might be the solution you need. FIT is a groundbreaking method for overcoming negative thought patterns and achieving success by harnessing the power of your own mind. It combines elements of mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy, ultimately helping you make better choices that align with your values and goals.

The Choice point by Joanna Grover and Jonathan Rhodes for the Passion Struck recommended books.

Joanna Grover shared how FIT has had a significant impact on her own life and those of numerous others she works with, from Olympic athletes to high-ranking executives. She explained that by using FIT, individuals can become more resilient and better equipped to handle the pressures and setbacks they may face in life. FIT is a powerful means of tapping into your inner motivation and harnessing your imagination to make conscious, value-based decisions that propel you toward your goals.

Using Imagery to Achieve Goals
Harnessing the power of mental imagery is a key component of the FIT method. By creating vivid and detailed mental scenarios that reflect your desired outcomes, you can motivate yourself to take the necessary steps to achieve your goals. Engaging all five senses in your mental imagery makes it even more realistic and powerful, fueling your passion and determination to succeed. Joanna Grover shared compelling examples and anecdotes that clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of using imagery to achieve one’s goals.

She explained that FIT is grounded in two decades of scientific research, making it a reliable and credible approach for transforming your thought patterns and driving change in your life. Whether you are an athlete hoping to break records or an entrepreneur striving for success, integrating mental imagery into your daily routine can greatly enhance your motivation, resilience, and overall performance.
