If a man can realize his divine nature with the help of an image, would it be right to call that a sin ? Nor, even when he has passed that stage, should he call it an error.

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. You can do it in every area of your life. Before performance, a sales presentation, a difficult confrontation, or the daily challenge of meeting a goal, see it clearly, vividly, relentlessly, over and over again.
