We begin with the mind, because your thoughts are the most powerful part of the equation. Stephen Covey taught me to first know where I am going and what I want. When I trained fo r my life coach certification we were taught similarly to begin by creating a vision with our clients. I like to equate this to setting your “Personal GPS”. After all it is difficult to get where you are going if you have no idea where that is. In other words, we begin with the end in mind.
