At the beginning of the year, many people get inspired … to lose weight, start a business, write a book, or fulfill some other desire. By the end of January, the desire may have faded, and by March it’s only a wish.
How can desires become goals? The secret lies in creating a clear thought-image. A goal is an image of the completed end result. I heard recently that Wayne Dyer, a prolific published author, makes a “mock book” before writing. He decides what he wants to title the book, makes a mock cover, and puts it around a blank book. This helps him to visualize the completed book.
