You will only hit the things that you aim for. If you don’t try, you do not generally succeed. This we all know. A question which fewer people know the answer to is how to go about the process of taking aim. To create a goal which has real power, your imagination needs to be activated and stimulated on a continuing basis.
Brilliant minds over the years have all had the ability to imagine the end result of which they dream. How could a carpenter make a chair without first seeing that chair in his mind’s eye? How could an artist paint a picture without first seeing it in his imagination? These are examples of things which are creative and it is easy to see the link between creativity and imagination. But your imagination is also required in the pursuit of answers to logical, scientific and analytical conundrums as well.
To invent something like the television, the radio or the electric light bulb, each of these brilliant minds had to first imagine the end result which they wished to achieve. Their imagination is what set the ball rolling and what fuelled their success. When you see something clearly in your mind’s eye and set your heart upon achieving it, you in effect magnetize success into your reality. You need to see it and to feel it; only then will it happen.
Your imagination is where it all begins. As you imagine the end result that you wish to achieve, you make it real within your mind and you open your mind to possibilities. Without first doing this how could you get excited or feel any propulsion to take aim for your goal? Emotion is what animates your brain to pursue your goal no matter what and to leave no stone unturned. A thought without emotion has no effect. Conversely, the more emotion you feel, the greater the effect you will achieve.
Your imagination really does power success. As you learn to imagine the end result, to imagine your goal, you feed your emotions and propel yourself forwards to find a way in which you can achieve your goal. And as you visualize your goal again and again you will see everything more clearly, more vividly and with greater definition. A powerful cyclical effect ensues as you keep visualizing your goal in your mind’s eye, and feel ever more excited and stimulated; your creative and logical minds work together to achieve success.
Brilliant minds over time have also found that to let their imagination wander when deliberately relaxing is the surest way to success. In this state of relaxation your subconscious mind comes to the fore, the part which knows just what to do and just how to do it. This state is in actual fact hypnosis. When in hypnosis you have easy access to your subconscious mind and its creative abilities. Visualizations become more vivid and emotions become more enhanced; these, of course, are the two vital elements which power success.
