Make It A Habit To Imagine

When Lee Evans trained for the 400-meter race in the 1968 Olympics, he did more than run revolution after revolution around the track with the stopwatch ticking.  He also spent many hours quietly visualizing the race as he would perform from beginning to end.  He imagined every stride he would take, one after another.  As he did, his actual running form gradually improved, and so did his times.  In Mexico City, he not only won a gold medal, but he set both an Olympic and a world record (43.8 seconds) that lasted twenty-three years before it was finally broken.

What are you imagining?  How will you accomplish it?
