Great article.. A few other areas that mention this technique in greater detail is with Dr Elmer Gates in Think and Grow Rich. Gates is described having probably the most intensive visualization technique, going so far as to create his own sensory deprivation tank to build these incredible mental models. In addition, the description of having strong mental models of the world and their connection to success is outlined in Ray Dalio’s Principles, as well as Charles Duhigg’s Smarter Faster Better.
Great synthesis! You’ve reminded me of the importance of visualization. This can also be attribute to one’s life, which Tony Robbins champions.
