I don’t know if you follow the NFL Draft, but I thought this was an interesting takeaway from RG3’s post draft pick interview. He was wearing a pair of socks that said “catch your dreams”, when asked why, he said this:
“Go catch that dream — because a lot of times when you chase something you never get to it,” he said. “So if you say, ‘Hey, I’m going to go catch my dream,’ you’re already telling yourself that you’re going to get it.”
Simple- but very true. Visualization is an important thing. Goals are only real when you write them down and commit to them (getting them stitched into a sock is like writing them down I guess).
Giving them a life and air to breath by putting them in visual form.
Pretty powerful stuff.
