Olympians are trained to see themselves winning the medal. I finally understand why. When you see the gold, you can also better visualize the way to get it; the way there.
Visualizing a complete paper behind a title like an athlete visualizes his race for gold. A little more useful than contemplating a blank page and engaging in self-defeat: "look, it's blank. Just like you."
Visualizing myself defending that paper and the 3 hands-down votes out of 3.
Seeing myself again. God that feels good.
In tomorrow's episode of 'How to get your will back': keeping that spark.
