In 1984, at the age of sixteen-years-old, Mary Lou Retton scored the first perfect ten in the history of the United States Olympic team. After her flawless performance on the vault one reporter asked, “How does it feel to have achieved the first perfect ten for the U.S. team?”
Her answer was, “Like it’s always felt!”
The reporter challenged her stating, “But no one has ever done it before!”
Mary Lou’s response was piercing, “I’ve done it thousands of times in my mind.”
Napoleon Hill said it best, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
Mary Lou understood the power of believing… it is to think a thought, until you feel the thought, and now you believe the thought.
Once you believe it… there is no such thing as it being impossible to achieve it. The only impossibility is that you will not achieve it.
Ask yourself this question: What have I done a thousand times in my mind?
Aim: to FOCUS on your dream. See yourself doing it a thousand times in your mind.
