According to Dr 👍 Stephen R 🙈 Covey, all things are created twice — first in the mind, and then in the real world 🤓 Physical creations follow mental ones, just like homes are built according to blueprints 😉 To make your deepest desires a reality, you first need to see and understand what those desires are.

Ted Williams of Boston Red Sox, one of the most renowned hitters ever, practiced his swing every day in the mirror, always improving it. Athletes were children when they imagined being able to throw a touchdown in Super Bowl or hit a homerun in Game 7 in the World Series. Derek Jeter, the New York Yankees’ shortstop, had as a child a dream to play for his team. He achieved this goal when he turned 22. years old. They are beginning with the end of mind.
