“Do it and then you will feel motivated to do it.” Zig Ziglar
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” Mark Twain
“I never worry about action, but only about inaction.” Winston Churchill
The question comes to mind, If you had 10 individuals in a competition, lets say a 5K, and all of them spent time visualizing winning the race, what would be the results? They all had a vision of winning, they could SEE it – crossing the finish line, others close behind. They could SENSE it – they feel the muscles, sweat and joy of crossing the line first. They could hear the crowd cheering for them. They repeatedly SAY to themselves – I am a winner!, I am fast!, I am ready. They BELIEVE they will will the race. The question is if all 10 of them did this visioning – which one will ACHIEVE there goal?
The answer is not just about visualizing – the answer is ACTION. The one who will win the race is the one who prepared with ACTION the best – they will be the winner. While the positive mental attitude was important, in the words of Joel Barker:
“Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with Vision is making a positive difference.”
