Do you imagine a better life for yourself?
Do you intentionally give yourself time to reflect on what’s really important to you?
Are you taking small steps by faith to change your circumstances?
What would you do differently if you knew you couldn’t fail?
Program Your Thoughts With Imagination
The power of self-belief and self-talk to transform your work and life is tied up in your imagination. The power of the mind is so great that we often overlook the simplicity of taking time to imagine how life could be if we made different choices with our thoughts.
The power to choose what pictures we put into our minds gives us the freedom to create a future first in the imagination and second in reality. Thoughts can shape the future more profoundly than we could ever imagine.
Change Your Thinking For Better (Not Worse)
Taking time to dream, think, solve problems, and create allows the mind to create a better future than we are currently anticipating or living.
Imagine what life would be like if we constantly lived creatively, generously and authentically.
What if you said what needed to be said and did what needed to be done?
What if you stopped procrastinating and double-thinking yourself and just said and did what was on your mind to do?
Think Like an Athlete
Top athletes take time to imagine. They take time to dream. They see themselves training hard, winning the race, standing on the podium and handling the publicity.
They imagine a perfect performance under pressure when everyone is watching. They see this in their mind's eye when they are all alone and totally relaxed. They prepare their body in advance by practising in their mind for what is yet to come.
The mind cannot tell the difference between an actual event and something that is vividly imagined. The mind is so powerful that it can prepare your body for something you’ve never experienced before.
Rock climbers use this method, as well as explorers and adventurers who are trying to prepare for something uniquely challenging and something they’ve only dreamed about doing.
What do you dare to dream for yourself?
Maybe it’s time to utilise your imagination more.
