Your imagination is a fundamental part of your mental armory, and should be developed to your advantage. Well the good news is, that you can quite easily develop your imagination by following the suggested methods below. The writer Somerset Maugham, once said ” Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than the young”
There have been many creative thinkers in the past responsible for inventions such as the electric light bulb, radio, television, and more recently the Internet, mobile phone and home computer. Now of course I am not saying that simply having a developed imagination will allow you to come up with a revolutionary new product for the masses, but it could certainly have a massive impact on your own life and those of your family, so here are a few suggestions for improving your imagination: –
• Your Personality – Use your imagination to overcome undesirable habits. If you are reserved or bad-tempered, if you have a speech
• Your Relationships – In what ways can you be a better partner, or parent. How can you improve on your business networking? Think and act now. Your improved imagination can change your world, and those closest to you.
• Your Work – How can you improve your own working conditions, be more useful to your employer. If you are an employer, how can you improve working conditions for your staff? Could you provide a workplace were ALL employees can advance themselves.
• Your Achievements – Use your imagination vividly here, visualize yourself being what you aspire to be, doing what you want to do. Create success images day-by-day, only positive images from now on; let imagination be your best friend.
Set about formulating NOW a vivid and detailed picture of exactly the person you wish to become. Focus on this image every day as often as you can. Let this image be the first thing you think of when waking, and the last thing you think of before going to sleep. You must do this daily, if you discipline yourself to follow this advice you WILL eventually become that person which your mind has created, and the words of John Masefield, who wrote “Man’s body is faulty, his mind untrustworthy, but his imagination has made him remarkable” will be proven throughout your life.
