Stephen Hawking s Power of Visualization

Stephen Hawking’s Power of Visualization   by Tony Papajohn

Occasionally, I find someone who says, “I can’t visualize.”
While this may be true in rare instances, it is not most of the

When someone says, “I can’t visualize,” they usually mean, “I’m
not very good at this.”

That’s fine. As Yoda might say, “Practice we can.”

Whether you are practiced or not at the essential success skill
of visualization, consider this interesting example of what one

to master the art of visualization.

So, if visualization doesn’t seem to come naturally, look up,
and practice.

Use this skill and reach for the stars.
