As I Think I Am
If You Never Think It First, It Will Never Be

It has been said that if the Empire State Building had never been visualized in the Architect's mind, the building would not exist today. this applies to all the great concepts we see around us. The process starts with a mental picture of what you want to exist, and a desire to make it happen. If you would like to do great things, think great thoughts and get into action. This process assumes you have good ideas from time-to-time and confidence in your abilities. Without these you can't generate dreams and translate them into reality.

I heard a story of a woman who was confined to bed in a hospital, and during that stay read of a golf tournament that was to be held. She visualized entering and winning the tournament even though she had never played serious golf before ... She read books on golf, talked about golf, and visualized each of the strokes she would play over and over in her mind. After her release form the hospital she immediately started lessons and within a matter of weeks entered the tournament. You guessed it ...... she won!

It is only wishful thinking to go to work each day and expect your career to move to exciting levels without first visualizing what that new level looks and feels like. You must see your mind before it can become a reality.
