“Reality can be beaten with enough imagination.”
– Mark Twain
Imagine… Being productive at a job you love.
Are you able to visualize that job? Can you conceive of what it might be? Does it help others to live a better life? Will it provide for you and your family? Would you continue to enjoy it, year after year?
Imagine… Loving your perfect mate.
Can you define the values that you share with your partner? Does being there for another, in good times and bad, feel right to you? Would you be able to love him or her, year after year? Are you able to visualize sharing yourself with a true partner in life?
Imagine… Living a joyful life.
Are you able to visualize the perfect job and the perfect life partner? Do you see your Self in a positive mindset? Is your spirit at peace? Can you see the potential for experiencing joy every day?
Imagination is Creativity
Imagination is creativity in its simplest form. You can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone, and have whatever you want in your imagination. If you want to live in a world that is full of joy, love, laughter, and peace; where everything in your life strengthens and inspires you; where you can accomplish whatever you desire, and everyone will love and accept you; or whatever world you imagine living in, then do it!
Nobody is stopping you but you. It’s your imagination. You have total creative power of it.
“Live out of your imagination, not your history.”
– Stephen Covey
If you think that the life you live is merely a result of your history, genetics, and circumstances beyond your control, and leave out living from your imagination, you will live a sad and hard life indeed. But if you live with your imagination, and allow it to create a life within your control, you will enjoy a very amazing and joyful life.
Your imagination has no limits except what you yourself limit it to. If you want something different – imagine it, create it and live it! Just open yourself to the power of imagination. Enjoy where it takes you and all you can create with it.
Did you ever imagine that your imagination had the power to transform your life so radically, and positively?
