Imagination

Your Imagination .. is Your power source.

After all what is life without imagination?

Boring. Meaningless. These are two words that instantly come to mind.

And this power source of Yours feeds Your Creativity and Your mindset.Imagination WP Blog post

“Imagination is greater than knowledge”  said Einstein.

So imagine more. Flex those imagination muscles of Yours.

And while you are at it throw in some Big Dreams ..

and dream them often.

And from those dreams go and create stuff & believe in what You are creating.

Visualise this, visualise a life full of creativity, dreams and goals that are set from those dreams.

Your goals. Your dreams. Your creativity.

Touch it, feel it. Imagine it.

 

Be good to Yourself

Imagination .. The Best of Revisited

Some years back, I wrote quite a few posts around the topic of “Imagination”. This particular post summarised four quotations/short stories on Imagination.

I thought it timely to revisit this and … Just Imagine for a while.

“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.

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 just 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 ..The Best of Imagination WP Blog post

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?

No.

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.”

What can You imagine Today?

Short Story No. 5

Fellow Life Lover,

At the risk of being repetitive, “You can have it All”.

The only thing stopping you?

Is You.

Here’s 7 points that will help you to be the BEST possible version of You.

There are [in some cases], many sub points to these 7 and I have written about all of them previously and no doubt will again in the future.

I simply want you to take stock of these pointers and begin the necessary action toward creating your best version of self.Short story No5 Blog post

1. Step up.

You may be in your comfort place right now. Take a step up the ladder where the view is a little better. You’ll find a lot more comfort as you climb. And a lot more confidence.

2. Step out.

Isolation is not helpful. Take the steps to move yourself out from your current zone into the bigger world where the action happens. Add a spring to your step, embrace new friends & relationships. Create new opportunities.

3. Stand Tall & Shine.

Shrinking violets are fine in the garden. This world needs your light. Stick your head up and speak your message. There’s no need for brash & brassy, just the strength of your authenticity.

4. Dream/Imagine.

Break the shackles of one pace thinking and introduce fresh thoughts that will take you to another level.

5.Care.

This adds an important dimension to your “work”. When you add the care factor, you elevate yourself above the crowd.

6. Share.

You are not an island. Helping others up adds to your own strengths. Encouraging others to share their talents multiplies this effect.

7. Live Well.

Look after your body and your mind. Exercise of the daily kind is essential for both. Love your friends and your family. Love the opportunity to live this life. You have one shot only.

3 ways to elevate Your game & achieve Your Mid Life Goals

Hi there fellow Life Lover.

No, this isn’t another post on Goals. 

You see,Goals can just be goals or Goals can be something that excites you.

But more of that later.

You’re heading toward 45.

And You have dreams that you want to come true. Firstly, you know that you will need to strengthen your resolve to pursue those dreams by setting some goals.

But you aren’t talking about “just goals”. This time,You need some real structure and punch, to elevate your game to a higher level.Pass the Juice WP Blog post

When you’ve navigated your way to 45 and you have even Bigger plans for the rest of your life, your goals need to be Big as well.

Outlandish, outrageous Goals? Not necessarily … but they will need to be bold in their structure and purposeful in their intent.

I’ve already mentioned “Purpose”. Add to that a liberal sprinkling of excitement and “out of the comfort zone daring” and then your mix has come alive.

You are in the prime of your life. By setting these purposeful goals you will be taking great steps to ensure that you springboard into and through the next 10 years.

This is a period in your life where you should be looking to stretch your thoughts and your imagination. Imagine Bigger, imagine Better. Get your juices flowing.

Yes, I know you think that only others have the Big Dreams and get the Big rewards.

You can as well. You are only limited by your thinking.

Now is the time for Bigger thinking. Broader thinking. Creative thinking.

And You can do this.

Time gets away. You and I both know that. I can’t stress enough, the need for You to maximise this time so that your years beyond 55 are just as rewarding as the next 10 years can be … and with effort are likely to be even better.

Starting Today, begin mapping your thoughts on how you want this year to finish and next year to evolve.

Build on that by expanding your horizons and take a snapshot of where you would like yourself to be in 3, 5,10 years from now. Financially wise, personal growth wise, family wise and perhaps spiritually wise.

Write it down. It doesn’t have to be perfect right now. Just let out your thoughts. You can make more detailed sense of them later [not too much later, though].

But very importantly, build your framework through Your goals, your support crew and your dreams.

Believe in yourself to make this happen! and get the support to help you build on this Belief. Start taking action Today!

Heading toward 60 – 6 months out [part 6]

Hello again.

My journey toward 60 continues. Stop, start, flow, doubt, excitement … they are all part of my “journey” thus far.

On June 18, the 6 month countdown begins.

What have I learned/am continuing to learn at age 59.5 years?
Creative image8

I’ve learned that energy is still crucial. And I’ve learned that despite my stumbles and doubt, I still have bundles of energy to keep me going.

I’ve learned that excitement is still contagious. I get it from others and use it to fuel my own adventure … and I pass it on to those who need it.

I’ve learned that Love is still abundant. I receive and I give [probably not as frequently as I should I must admit] …. I’m still working on that.

I’ve learned that fitness beats fatness. That I picked up on many years back and I have maintained this despite the temptation to “ease back”. Fit bodies [or reasonably fit for my age] help stimulate fit minds. And that’s kinda useful … very useful.

I’ve learned that listening is the key to understanding. Always. Listen first, speak second. “Understanding” is a major key toward effective communication. When you understand your audience, whether that be 1 person or many, then you are able to communicate with maximum effect.

I’ve learned that you do keep learning if you choose to do so. Life long learning is a must have. You should never stop learning. “Too old” is an excuse. And excuses simply do not cut it.

I’ve learned that Choice is your No 1 power. You have abundant choice. Exercise your choices wisely. They are the determining factor between “getting through life” and “getting above life”.

I’ve learned that Motivation, Determination and Imagination are 3 subjects that should be taught in school. Master these and your life will be a breeze. Above all, these 3 “subjects” are part of my life long learning curricula. It’s what keeps me going, keeps me moving forward … and they can be for You, as well.

Looking forward to 60. And looking forward to the next 6 months of 59.

Short Story No.3

Hi Again.

“Smallville” is only for the son of Superman. It shouldn’t be a place where you reside. Agreeably there is a place for everyone on this planet however accepting small as an alternative to Big is giving in.Untitled26

“What is” is no replacement for “what if”. Ask the Question.Think Bigger, expand your horizons and create your best Life.
