Help wiring 2 dimmers from one power source

I am really lost here. I have power coming into a box that I need to feed two dimmer switches, another electrical outlet in the adjacent wall, and ceiling lights on the same circuit. I need to know how to feed all of these from the one power lead into the box. HELP!!!

"Feeding" the two dimmers is simple--- just Wire-Nut the dimmers leads to the "Live" Black conductor. This is the "Line-connection"

We'll need to know more about the 2 "Load-connections"-- the Black and White conductors that extend from the Outlet-box where the dimmers are connected to the two dimmer-controlled fixtures.Please submit an exact description of the existing connections in the O-B---

Good Luck & Enjoy the Experience!!!!!!!!!

Connect all the whites together.
Connect all the grounds together.
Connect the power in black to the receptacle black, and one wire from each dimmer.
Connect the the other wire from each dimmer to the wire from the light fixture.
