Hi

As mental picturing is probably the most powerful form of thinking, too much importance can hardly be paid to its right cultivation. The effect of
such cultivation is to bring about a state of positive-mindedness, a most desirable condition. It also builds up character, making us strong where once we were weak, and able to achieve many things which we were before quite unable to undertake. (The Power of Thought/Henry Thomas Hamblin)

Does the part "too much importance can hardly be paid to its right cultivation" mean that we can never pay too much attention to perfecting it (this form of thinking)?

    You have the right interpretation. Since they have a weak qualifier in the original, I would include that in your summary. For example,
    it would be almost impossible to pay too much attention to perfecting it
