Put the goal in sight

Though the marathon runner may be completely exhausted from the effort, when the finish line is in view her pace will quicken. When the goal is in sight, things change dramatically.

Those who can clearly visualize the goal from the farthest away are the ones who will surely reach that goal. When the goal is clearly in sight you are drawn to it by a force that is nearly unstoppable. You cannot help but make whatever effort is necessary to reach it.

When the goal is in sight, so is the path which will get you there. The more precisely you can visualize your ultimate goal, the more clearly you will understand how to achieve it.

What are you working to accomplish? Precisely, exactly, specifically, what is it? What color is it? How does it feel when you touch it? What does it smell like? How does it sound? Make it real in your mind. See all the rich details. Clearly visualize where you’re going and you will find a way to get there.

— Ralph Marston
