Your attitude is vital. Imagine a match between two evenly matched boxers. One has a positive attitude toward the game and is confident that he will win. The other boxer has a negative attitude and hopes that he won't make a fool of himself. Which boxer do you think will win? They are of equal ability, but only one has a positive attitude. That boxer is confident that he will win. Add visualization to this positive attitude, and he would become virtually unbeatable, as he is focused on a successful outcome.Richard Webster, Creative Visualization for Beginners: Achieve Your Goals and Make Your Dreams Come True (Woodbury, MN: Llewellyn Publications, 2005), p. 23.
