“Your imagination is a most valuable asset. It is a major resource for you when used deliberately. It is the seat of your creativity, innovation and problem solving. It can lead you in powerful, positive directions, It can lead you to incredible heights.
Untamed it can be unruly and waste your time. You can spend hours in frivolous daydreaming getting no where, doing nothing or it can lead you to productive and unlimited heights. Learn to wisely use and direct your imagination. Control and manage your thinking.
Instead of living their dreams most people live their nightmares. They fear the worst and then it happens. They don’t want bad things to come their way but then they do. If this happens to you, then you must change it. You must do different things to get different results!
Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge
A powerful practice is ‘act as if’. ACT as if you already have the changes you seek. Act as if you are already the person you desire to become. Act as if you already had the future goods and money you want. Live from that perspective. Enjoy those feelings right now.
As you ‘act as if’ you think, feel and behave congruently as that future you. When you do this it signals your subconscious that this is what you want and who you are. You align all of your resources on your target goal. Obviously, you must believe in what you are doing.
Your goal must be worth it and you must believe you ‘are it’ and or ‘have it’ already. This is why ‘I am’ and ‘I have’ affirmations and Directed Questions™ are powerful and helpful. You fill your mind and being with positivity ‘it’ right now! Live IT in the present.
You Get What You Focus On – What You Focus On Expands
‘Act as if’ is a great practice and it works. In fact, it already is working for most people in the opposite direction. They act as if they will always have problems, be broke, unhealthy, unhappy and lonely. That is the predominant mindset of many. They perpetuate it.
If you want a different life YOU have to create it. It isn’t going to happen for you if you continue doing what isn’t working. You must take charge and make it happen. Think of your subconscious mind and your life as a wild horse running wild. You must tame it.
You must break the horse. Domesticate it so it is useful IF you want the horse to work with you in the future. If you let it run wild it will do whatever it wants to do. Your mind is the same. You must take charge and teach it what to do, otherwise, it does as it wants.
What You Think About You Bring About – It Is All About Focus
It does the only things it knows, It continues the habits that keep you precisely where you are right now and where you will be tomorrow unless you do something proactive about it. If you want your life to change you must change what you are doing. Change your habits.
Control your mind. ‘Act as’ if IS a great way to begin to gain control over you mind and your life. Affirmations, visualization, reading inspirational and motivational material or listening to audios a half hour everyday are part of the process. Monitor your self talk.
Direct your imagination. Aim it like a laser beam on what you want. Stop negativity and redirect it into positive streams of self talk and consciousness. Let go of problems and what you can’t do and focus on solutions and what you are able to accomplish. Do it bit by bit.
Either You Create Habits That Support You Or That Limit You
Create daily habits or rituals that support you in being, doing and having what you want. You can be, do and have anything you want in life IF YOU do the right things, repeatedly and consistently for long enough. You can create a real, positive difference! YOU can!
I’ll share some more ways you can use your imagination in up coming posts. You CAN pretend anything and master it. You already are doing it. If you can become aware of how you are already contributing to your problems you can overcome them. Truly!
Stop creating what you don’t want and begin creating what you do want. A powerful piece is to focus your mind and imagination. You become what you think about most often. What you focus on expands. This is why gratitude is a wonderful practice to engage in.
The Man Who Has No Imagination Has No Wings
Fill yourself with thankfulness and appreciation and you will get more of the wonderful feelings back. As you do your subconscious gets the message. Feelings drive everything. How you feel determines what you do or don’t do.
What you do or don’t do determines what you get! How you feel stems from how and what you are thinking about. Think positive, feel grateful and your life can and will change as you keep it up. Dabbling won’t create a difference, or if it does, not for long.
Success habits will get you bettter more desirable results! Make habits of those practices that make your life marvelous. Only you can do it for you. You must stop making things problems and difficulties and begin making things how you want them to be.
You Can Pretend Anything And Master It – You Already Have
You determine the results you get and the life you live. You get back what you put out. Keep this in mind. Like attracts like. Birds or a feather flock together. What goes around comes around. You are the creator and the attractor. So celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
Have a wonderful day!
