Great athletes can anticipate a play and have the vision to see outcomes before they take place. Research has discovered the same area of the brain that is engaged in prediction is the same area of the brain engaged in practice. Intentional practice increases your brain’s ability to make predictions and increases your vision.
“I think that the greatest gift God ever gave a (person) is not the gift of sight but the gift of vision. Sight is a function of the eyes, but vision is a function of the heart. When a person doesn’t have a vision, they live by their eyes. That means we live by what we see. That’s one of the reasons why people are so depressed, and that’s why the future never becomes a reality. Vision is a source of hope; it’s the source of courage; it’s the source of perseverance in the midst of difficulty.” Dr. Myles Monroe
