Well I have to tell you that this is the first mistake that I or you could make when trying to accomplish anything. Whether it be to win the big race, to get a date or to succeed in life.
Let me ask you this.
Which end of this donkey is really the end? Is it the rear end, or the front end.
You'll have to decide for yourself but the moral is - to begin with the end in mind.
If you want to be a national champion motocross racer then you need to start by seeing yourself standing on the podium with the crowd going wild. The press is there, you're mom is crying and your dad is telling everyone, that's my boy or girl.
If you begin visualizing this over and over in your mind, your body and your brain will take over and take the actions needed to make it happen.
It apply's to any area of life:
Picture getting the new job
Driving the new car
Walks on the beach with your sweet heart...
No matter what the goal - see it first, then the results will come.
