discuss whether this practice of visualizing successful completion of physical activities is “pop psychology” and mysticism

Details:

Much attention was given to mental imagery in athletics (particularly tennis) in the 1960s and 1970s under the heading of visualization as a way to improve personal performance. The idea was to practice specific physical actions and to visualize them being successfully completed without actually doing them.
