Plan to win

Too often, when you visualize all the things that could go wrong, you never even make the attempt. You’re defeated before you even start, by your own imagination.

It doesn’t have to be that way. You can visualize anything you want. Your imagination is yours to control. Instead of anticipating defeat, plan in your mind to win. See yourself achieving. Consider the possible challenges you’ll face, and then see yourself successfully overcoming them.

You don’t need any money, or experience, or knowledge, or permission from anyone else to be a winner in your own mind. You can do it right now, and tomorrow, and for the rest of your life. And whatever you can visualize in vivid detail, is well on its way to happening.

Think about what you do want, and discard thoughts of what you don’t want. Be a winner in your mind, and your positive mind will make you a winner.

— Ralph Marston
