Abstract [en]

Goal self-concordance has been shown to have enduring influences on behavior. It predicts sustained effort and increased goal-attainment. Compared to goals that lack self-concordance, self-concordant goals generate greater satisfaction and increased well-being. One research strand where vision and goal self-concordance have been studied as integrated dimensions in behavior-steering processes is work on episodic future thinking. In any long-term activity, self-concordant vision generates momentum by channeling the person’s focus. In addition to survey-based research pointing to the importance of vision and visualization capacity in generating motivation for language learning, studies have also demonstrated the effects of visionary-based interventions in second language (L2) classrooms. A growing body of work now points to the value of mental imagery in L2 learning, adding to the list of domains in human life in which vision functions as a motivational resource–business management, psychotherapy, and theology, to name but a few. © 2022 Taylor and Francis.
