the tibetans have really mastered this. maybe you already knew that. the special feature of tibetan style buddhism (and to a lessor degree shingon in japan) is that one visualizes oneself AS a buddha, and contemplate what that would be like. I think that is the ultimate form of imagining success.

this is what the dalai lama does every morning for four hours, he holds different visualizations of himself focusing on different positive qualities of a buddha and rests in the sensations of what it would be like to be a self-less person, a completely open and compassionate person, an energized to help the world kind of person, etc. it's no wonder he's so charming!
