Almost all of the world-class athletes and other peak performers are visualizers. They see it , they feel it, they experience it before they actually do it. They began with the end in mind.

Create an internal "comfort zone''. Then, when you get into the situation, it isn't foreign. It doesn't scare you.

George Catlin

But inaction itself is a kind of action, and it has consequences. Consistently and absolutely maintained, inaction would necessarily lead to swift ruin , it would be a form of suicide. A refusal to enter into the world is a refusal to meet the challenge of reality which darkly demands that I dare and find out what will happen. In my situation I bear responsibility for what occurs because I do not intervene , if I can do something and I don't do it, I am guilty of the consequences of my inaction.
