Our unique human ability to have an imagination is something that most of us certainly take for granted.
If you take a moment to think about it, there is definitely some magic involved in the concept of utilizing your imagination.
To start off we can gain external inspiration, whether from another person or a group of people or possibly from a situation that unfolds in front of us.
For example, we can see the way an influential person goes about living their life. Take for example Tony Robbins who inspires millions of people to better themselves and take control of their lives, while also living himself in a manner that aligns with what he preaches.
From there a seed of thought or an idea can be planted within our mind.
To continue with the example, Tony Robbins’ impact can inspire us to want to better ourselves, and even more specifically, live in a way that allows us to find happiness and appreciation for our life.
We can then harness the power of our imagination to envision in the eye of our mind what that concept would look like in tangible form.
This could include visualizing the habits we’d need to instill into our life, the steps we’d need to take in order to implement them and imagining how that new and improved person would go about living their life and how it would feel having attained the goal.
It’s been said that imagination is the key to motivation.
Since our brains don’t know the difference between a real experience and a vividly imagined one, we can create the reality we seek through visualization paired with tremendous emotional intensity.
By taking the time to visualize and imagine, we can build up the courage, discipline and positive stimulation to work towards taking care of and growing that seed.
Through consistent and continuous repetition over time, we can literally create what we imagined into physical form within our reality.
Magic is defined as “the power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces”, and the above scenario definitely describes that to a T!
Typically we stop using our imagination as often as we age, piling on the excuses that we don’t have the time, that we are fearful of what others would think or that we have too many other responsibilities to do so or to even entertain our imagined ideas.
This is a sad fact in today’s society, but it doesn’t have to remain this way.
We have the rare potential to literally envision ideas and concepts in our mind, blend them into the cocktail of our own individual references, experience, perspectives and beliefs in life, and then magically create them into our world.
Don’t undervalue yourself and your potential.
Don’t let your imagination muscle atrophy.
Harness the wizardry powers of being able to imagine and take maximum advantage of it.
“Anything real begins with the fiction of what could be. Imagination is therefore the most potent force in the universe.” – Kevin Kelly
