What’s the point of visualising success?

Two years ago, in April 2015, I read an article about the golfer Erik Compton, who as a child, had made a detailed drawing of himself as an adult hitting a ball up the fairway of the Augusta National Golf course. 

He tweeted his message out to the world to illustrate that he had finally got there.

I tweeted Erik back and asked him if he recalled regularly referring to the picture he had drawn as a kid. Erik’s response? “That picture hangs in the hitting bay where I train on purpose - I see it every day.”

It just goes to show that imagining and designing Future You can be a turbo-charged addition to your success toolbox!

What else do you have in your toolbox?
