But to really make things happen...you need one key ingredient...Imagination. Yes...you need the massive power of your imagination. Not only will this breathe life into seemingly mundane tasks...it will pull desirable results to you at lightening speed.
It's not complicated...just let yourselve imagine magical outcomes. Imagine them in detail. Let's say you want to be a great athlete. Start by pretending you are NOW the great athlete you want to be. Walk like you imagine a great athlete would walk. Talk like you imagine a great athlete would talk. Dress like you imagine a great athlete would dress. Carry yourself as though you are a great athlete. A world class track and field athlete does not sheepishly creep up to the track to do their workout. They walk proudly, calmly and with purpose. They exude confidence. It doesn't matter if you are terrified and secretly believe you are the biggest wimp in the world. That will change. Just pretend you are the Lion you want to be. Do this every moment you can think of it, not just while you're working out.
If your imagination needs a kick start, watch top level athletes. Observe how they move and perform their sport. Mimic them. More than anything, mimic their attitude...their focus...their relaxation. Obviously, throw out all the qualities you don't care for and just imitate the aspect(s) you want to adopt.
It does not matter how well you currently perform your sport. It does not matter if you run a 30 minute 5K and you are pretending you are a 13 minute 5K runner. Just fake it 'till you make it...or don't make it. No matter. It's just like when you were a child and played make believe. No different. Children learn fast. No wonder.
When I was young, I wanted to be a top sailboat racer. I wanted it so much that I constantly engaged my imagination. I used little toy boats. I laid them out on my bed and had pretend races. I imagined myself winning under all conditions, against the finest competition, in places all over the world. I created every imaginary situation I could think of. I gave myself all sorts of imaginary obstacles and, of course, always figured out an imaginary solution. My pretend events included play-by-play announcing, post race interviews, press conferences, awards ceremonies, the works. Believe it or not, reality followed. When I actually found myself sailing in a real world championship, I was able to react effectively to almost every situation because, in a sense, I had been through it all before.
You can use your imagination in any field of endeavor. The important thing is to use it. It's like a muscle it gets stronger with exercise. If you find it tough to engage your imagination, it's possible you're simply not participating in the right activity. Try to do things that capture your imagination...your spirit. That will help.
Let's face it. We all use our imaginations. This is just a reminder do continue to do so...and maybe a little more often. We have permission.
In a world of pure imagination.
Take a look and you'll see into your imagination..."
