Scenario Building is an activity that one of my clients, many years ago now, encouraged me to practice, as it had potentially wonderful results.
Here is my version of “scenario building.”
To quiet the mind, sit quietly with closed eyes. Do so to relax in preparation for an upcoming meeting that is 15-20 minutes away, for example. Scan your body for traces of stress and strain. Once you feel comfortably relaxed, begin the scenario building process. Imagine the impending meeting as it starts and turns toward you. Imagine what people may potentially ask or state for your response. Then imagine yourself responding perfectly well.
Again, allow yourself to imagine other potential assertions and questions that could be posed to you, both positive and negative, and still imagine yourself responding with a perfect reply.
Continue with this process of imagining potential inquiries and your ideal retorts. The wonderful results that you receive by doing this exercise will perhaps be noticeable. You are preparing yourself for a successful meeting. An Emotional strengths counselor is available when you’re ready.
