Personal Quote:

(on the powers of visualizing your goals) I visualize the roles that I want. If I hadn't visualized playing athletes, I wouldn't have gotten Major League. If I hadn't visualized playing a president, David Palmer never would have happened. You've got to have a sense of what you want to do; otherwise, the universe is just going to throw something at you.
