Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:
The practice of creative visualization is not idle day dreaming or wishful thinking. Yes, you could say that it’s like dreaming, but it’s more than that. It is focused imagining, with the power of your will and persistence behind it. It is an immaterial activity that takes form first as a mental image, then as a material image.
Visualization is the first step in bringing forth your quality purpose and determination (the fourth principle of mental conduct); therefore, you must exercise responsibility in what you imagine. You use the same responsibility you used when you formed your quality purpose and determination.”
