One of the reasons some people become successful in life is that they tap into their imagination and use it to ell their minds that they can achieve their goals. They envision what it would be like and feel like once their goal has been achieved.  Their imagination becomes a catalyst and sparks the unconscious mind into action.  This is the place creativity, ideas, methodologies, and solutions are born and after taking shape move into the realm of the conscious mind.  The ability for the mind and heart to believe that something is possible, enables it to become a reality.  This is what some call a self fulfilled prophecy.
