4 of the best “Imagination” quotes from the Highlight reel

I Love using my Imagination. A phrase that I enjoy sharing with regards to getting the best out of your imagination is…  imagine when rather than imagining if”. This brings it into the realms of reality rather than just wishful thinking.

Here’s a selection from four of the posts that I have previously written on the topic of Imagination.

1. Imagine, when you wake up one morning and there is the noise of laughter and singing echoing outside. You peer out of your window……

Your neighbourhood is absolutely full of people dancing & singing, dogs wagging their tails, cats purring and birds chirping…….and of course, the sun is shining brightly……..what a sight to behold!

You go outside to investigate the “fuss”. You ask a spritely looking elderly gentleman doing a jig, “what’s going on?” and he replies……

“Damn if I know, I justed started imagining a better place and found myself here”

you ask another and get the same reply and another, same reply and so on…….

Just Imagine if the whole world started imagining like this………

2. One of the beauties of Imagination is that there are no “rules” to abide by. There are no boundaries, limits, barriers, roadblocks, speed humps or obstacles…..or excuses.

Now in our “real world” that would likely be seen as unfair….. you know, you gotta play by the “Rules”.

Does Imagination care about that?


Don’t play fair when you can Imagine.

3. What’s the difference between Imagination and Procrastination?

Imagination will get you out of bed in the morning, excited to live another day, while…..

‘Procrastination’ will have you thinking…..”heck, my day can wait, where’s the snooze button?”

Imagination dwells inside each of us. Ever waiting to be released from it’s dormancy, often in a burst of mind numbing spontaneity.

Shed light on your imagination, often.

4. A major key to effect vivid imagining is to –  “Imagine when.…. not imagine “if“

Imagining “when” something happens is embracing what I call, the “substance” of imagination. It is bringing your imagined (previously locked up, never to be released) thoughts into the open where they can blossom into your reality.

“To imagine just once, kindles the glow……to imagine often, lights up the entire world.”

Well, there you have it.

Is your Imagination bottled up or do you let it loose and imagine much, much more?

be good to yourselves

  1. I woke up one day and realised that if I could do such a good job of imagining the worst… why not use that power to imagine the best. It was a fundamental shift. Thanks David! A great reminder that we can change the world we live in… just by “imagining” it different.

  2. Great post David. I love to image. And i alway go on the positive side. thanks for the reminder. We have snow on the ground this morning (not a lot) but I just looked out and was imagining people out there throwing it around and laughing and having a snow ball fight.
    Sounds great to me . thanks for lighting my day.
