If you visualized the wrong thing, you’ll produce wrong thing.

Steven Covey mentions this quote to explain the importance of visualization in his timeless best-selling book.

This quote is very simple. Stephen Covey gives his own example in the book where he visualizes himself in day-to-day situations. He can write the program, write the script, in harmony with his values, with his personal mission statement. Covey says that if he keeps visualizing day after day his behavior will change. He can live out of the script he has written from his self-selected value system. Covey’s method will work if his values are right. Consider an example of an artist who is given a task to create a chair. If that artist visualizes something else in his mind, then there is no way that he could end up producing a chair. That is the importance of visualization. It has immense power but, you need to make sure that you visualize the right thing.
