Your imagination is very important when it comes to changing your reality, as your mind has a huge impact on your life. In this post I reveal 10 tips to help you develop your imagination in order to realise the life you want to live.
We all have goals that we want to accomplish. Whether they are huge achievements or small victories; getting that promotion or making time for people close to you; attaining something you’ve aspired towards is like no other feeling.
Of course, this isn’t the same for everyone – the prospect of setting and achieving goals can be overwhelming and it’s easy to find yourself wandering off to a less daunting place in your mind.
Your imagination actually plays an important role when it comes to achieving real-life goals. By empowering your mind, you can empower your reality.
As Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”.
Here are 10 tips that will help you to tap into the goal-accomplishing powerhouse that is your imagination…
1. Realise Your Potential
If you want to achieve something, you can. Do you think Ernest Hemingway set out to be one of the greatest writers of all time? He followed his passion and with that came huge success.
2. Locate Your Thoughts
During meditation and exercise, we can silence mental chatter and access a new part of our brain.
When you begin to experience stillness, you can start to throw away the logic of the conscious mind and tap into the superconscious mind – and exercise.
Both will send feel-good endorphins to your brain and release pent-up stress and anxiety which are clouding your true potential.
3. Throw Away Preconditioned Notions Of Yourself
Is your mind telling you things that aren’t true? If so, you need to stop these thoughts and wipe the slate clean.
You are a blank canvas and you choose what you want to fill it with.
Tap in and experience your truest form; you are rich, alive and buzzing; nothing will change that.
4. Decide Where To Channel Your Energy
Decide on an imaginative path. For example, if you want to be a great painter, visualise yourself as Picasso; walk through your day pretending you are him.
What you think, you become.
If you imagine success, you will create a path for success to find you.
5. Research And Ask Questions
Always be inquisitive and most importantly, listen to others without always trying to form a reply.
You have so much to learn from your fellow peers.
Carry a notebook and write ideas down; you might be surprised where inspiration finds you.
Have you noticed what’s going on around you? Or are you still stuck in your racing mind?
Pay attention to what other successful people are doing.
Talk less and listen more.
7. Practice Mindfulness
“Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment.”
With this practice, comes vivid colours and heightened senses; use this new way of looking at the world to tap into your creative juices.
8. Take Time To Explore Your Passions
Music is one of my passions; when my favourite song is playing, I visualise stepping out at dawn and snapping a picture of a mysterious fog hovering over a still lake.
Read poetry, have fun with crafts, or go to an art gallery; do whatever gets you inspired and take a double dose.
9. Hesitation And Doubts Are Normal, Stop Being So Hard On Yourself
When the mind takes over and tells you that you aren’t good enough, let these thoughts pass by like clouds in the sky.
Thoughts will always arise, the key is not reacting to the negative ones.
10. Always Take Time For Yourself
