The power of visioning

As an 11-year old kid, I dreamed of playing shortstop for the Chicago Cubs. In my most vivid daydream, I saw myself in a major league ballpark, positioned just off the dirt in short with a baseball cap pulled down over my eyes, hair streaming out the back of the cap, lightly sweeping the dirt back and forth with my right foot.

Jump to the present: Yesterday my 11 year old son, who is participating in a University of Minnesota Baseball Camp, was invited to scrimmage in the Metrodome - home of the Minnesota Twins. I went and watched his scrimmage for several hours before leaving to return to my office.

As I made my way to leave, I turned and looked back at the field one last time. What I saw startled me: I saw my 11-year-old kid, in a major league ballpark,  positioned just off the dirt in short with a baseball cap pulled down over his eyes, hair streaming out the back of his cap, lightly sweeping the dirt back and forth with his right foot.

The best visioning advice I can give you is this:  Create it first in your mind, and then you will see it come alive.
