Remember the experiment with the students and the basketball. Several years ago a 30-day study was performed to see the effect of mental imagery in relation to actual performance. Thirty students were divided into three groups. All were tested as to their ability to get a basketball into the net from the free throw line. Group 1 was sent home and told not to practice basketball or even think about it for the next 30 days. Group 2 was asked to come into the gym and practice shooting baskets for one hour every day for the next 30 days. Group 3 was told to mentally visualize throwing basketballs into the net for one hour a day for the same 30 days. The results were amazing. Group one as you would expect had no change in their ability to get the ball into the basket. Group two demonstrated a 24% increase in their ability to shoot balls into the basket. Group three, the mental imageries, increased their abilities by 23%!
As Napoleon Hill and others before and since have said - "Whatever the mind can conceive, the heart believe, the hand will achieve".
