Yes, this week we are talking about imagination. I have found that most people would not associate imagination with success, and I’ve heard many naysayers shoot people’s goals down when they hear someone share their vision along with their big dreams. They would often make a statement like “That person is a daydreamer, or what an imagination they have.”
This way of thinking is completely wrong, imagination is one of the most important keys to becoming successful. Every dream and goal begins in the mind. In order to have success, you have to imagine yourself becoming successful. This turns your dream into reality, but imagination is way more than just daydreaming.
Imagination is the ability to visualize future situations and events that you would like to have happen in the near future.
Without a doubt, imagination is the key to success. Every vision and goal begins in your mind. What does success look like for you? The first step is to build an image of what you would like to do or achieve. Think about it and build a roadmap for success.
Successful people visualize their goal before achieving it. When you think about professional athletes for example, the successful ones will tell you they had a point in their life where they actually visualized and imagined themselves achieving great levels.
When successful athletes are interviewed after winning a Super Bowl or a world championship, you often hear them talk about how they imagined themselves achieving success in their minds many years before achieving their goal.
Imagination shapes the way we see our reality and it affects our actions and our behavior. This is why it’s important to imagine positive things happening in our lives. We need to imagine what we really want instead of what we don’t want. Everything we achieve in life begins with our imagination.
If you have found that perhaps you’ve lost your imagination, let me encourage you this week to get it back. Write out your goals and create a success map on what it’s going to take to achieve them. Take a moment and close your eyes for a minute or two and visualize all the wonderful blessings and benefits and imagine what it’s going to feel like achieving your dreams. Do this consistently. Imagine yourself winning an award for being a top performer. Imagine yourself having that home you’ve always wanted or going on that trip you’ve always dreamed about. Make that scene as real as you can. Visualize the wonderful benefits and feel the joy.
Your imagination can definitely change your life when you use it in the right way, but it’s not just daydreaming and waiting for things to happen. There has to be a strong desire, focus, and the willingness to do whatever it takes to become successful.
Make that change this week and use your imagination to visualize the success you really want in life. Feel and experience the joy in your mind for the blessings you will receive for achieving your goals. Take that imagination, apply yourself 100%, and watch your dreams turn into reality.
Imagine success and go for it!
