Our thoughts work like a compass that guides us in the directon we choose to go in. Our beliefs provide the map we follow to get where we want to go.
The power of our imagination, blended with the power of what we believe, provides us with the physical and emotional experience we think of as our life.
Who else could you be? Who else would you want to be? Be that person in your imagination, and you'll soon be that person in the physical world too.
