Start at the end

The more vividly you experience where you want to go, the more likely you are to get there. When you start the journey by clearly seeing the end, you’ll be confident of how to proceed.

If you start off by thinking that you’ll never get there, you probably won’t. Instead, realize from the beginning that a part of you is already there, and the rest of you will soon follow.

From the beginning, be the destination you wish to reach. Be the result you intend to achieve.

Make the reward at the end a part of who you are right now. And as each moment passes, the value inside you will continue to come out.

Before long, the whole world will be able to see what you have nurtured. Soon, it will be real in every way.

When you begin, send a part of yourself all the way to the end. And all of you will surely reach it in time.

— Ralph Marston
