Everything begins with a powerful and compelling vision of where and who you want to be. As Stephen Covey noted in his classic The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, we must begin with the end in mind. When visions and thoughts are backed by intense desires, they have a tendency to translate themselves into their physical equivalents. It's less about "I'll believe it when I see it" and more about "I'll see it when I believe it!".

  • The role of mindset in the entrepreneurial journey
