Be Careful What You Envision

My grandfather, who was a great carpenter used to stare at a piece of wood for hours because he envisioned what he was about to create. The more he envisioned what the end product looked like to him the more he would be motivated to create it.

I say this because I want you to understand that envisioning is the first step in the creative process and is crucial to your success.
Unfortunately many people skip the envisioning stage because they are too busy reacting. They instead wait until they hit rock bottom and react to their current situation or they react to outside influences like infomercials or membership specials or the next best thing promising great results.

What motivates a creator is not a problem he is trying to fix but the desire for the creation to exist.

Diets, dumbbells and DVD’s are simply tools. Your mind is the deciding factor to whether you will use any of these. Thinking that any of these are a solution is as absurd as saying that the reason Michealangelo created such a great statue is because he had great tools.

In order for you to reach your goal you need to start by reflecting on what your creation will look like to you. You need to do a little soul searching, a little dreaming, heck maybe even a little drawing.
