Imagination - Driving Your Success

Jul 8, 2008
"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions." - Albert Einstein

Your imagination one of the most important parts of your plan to achieve your goals. It's literally the workroom of the mind where all your plans are fashioned. All great discoveries, inventions or accomplishments started in the imagination.

How can the imagination help you achieve your goals? First, we need to discuss the two types of imagination.

There are two types of imagination:
-- synthetic
-- creative

The synthetic imagination allows you to rearrange or combine existing concepts, ideas, or plans into new combinations. This facility creates nothing, it merely rearranges existing ideas into new patterns. This type of imagination is used mostly by inventors.

The creative imagination is the faculty through with "hunches" or "inspirations" are based. All new ideas are generated through this type of imagination. It works best through the conscious mind when powered by a strong, burning desire.

In most people this faculty has become weak and underpowered though it hasn't disappeared completely. Like any skill, it must be practiced on a regular basis to grow stronger.

You'll mostly use the synthetic imagination to reach your goals. Transformation of your burning desires into real-world results requires the use of a plan, a set of step-by-step ordered actions to reach your goals. These plans are formed with the help of the synthetic imagination.

Once you have used your imagination to bring forth a set of detailed plans based upon your desires, you've given concrete, physical form to your non-physical desires.

Remember that the moment you transform your non-physical desires into a set of written, details plans, you've actually taken the first step enabling you to convert your thoughts into their physical counterparts.

Once you get an idea or thought in your head centering around a goal powered by a burning desire, it becomes larger and more powerful under its own power. You give life and action to them and they take on a life of their own sweeping away all obstacles between you and your goal.

The first step to harnessing the power of your imagination is to use affirmations. An affirmation is simply a positive statement that something is already true.

Affirmations must follow The 3 Ps:
-- Positive - they must be positive
-- Present - they must be in the present as that's all the mind knows
-- Personal - they must be about YOU and no one else

The subconscious filters out negation words like "not". It only interprets actions or things. If you try an affirmation like:
I am not smoking.

The mind filters out "not" and only hears:
I am smoking.

Phrase your affirmations in the positive:
I am healthy and smoke-free.

Repeat your affirmations as you can throughout the day, vividly seeing them powered by a deep-seated burning desire as being true in your imagination and the attainment of your goal is just around the corner!
