P.S. Over the next few weeks, I’m sharing a sneak peek into each chapter of my book, Your Bright Life: Get Clear on What You Want, Overcome Self-Doubt, and Bring Your Dreams to Life! In this complementary podcast series, I won’t share what’s IN the book; but rather, offer a little taste of each chapter so if it resonates, you can find more action items, journal entries, and stories in the book. 💛
Today, let’s dive into the first chapter, all about DREAMING. I start the book by helping you get crystal clear on your vision for your biggest, brightest life, because envisioning what you deeply desire is the foundation of bringing your dreams to life. Your imagination sets the container for what you believe is possible and will allow into your life. To illustrate this, below are a few quotes on imagination that have transformed my perspective on dreaming or goal-setting. I believe they’ll encourage you, too!
3 Powerful Quotes on Imagination
“Your Imagination Is Your Super Power.”
Your instincts to dream and reach for more are sacred and powerful. When someone tries to diminish your dreams by telling you they’re too ambitious or unrealistic, don’t let their words deter you. Your imagination sets the ceiling on what’s possible for you. Why not go bigger?
Consider this. If you’ve achieved something that seemed unimaginable before, recognize how much your life NOW aligns with your PREVIOUS thoughts and beliefs around what was possible for you.
Instead of imposing limitations on your mind, embrace your potential and dream even bigger. Surround yourself with images, relationships, and visuals of what you desire. The path toward any dream is challenging enough; let your imagination be a place without limits or constraints.
“Life is Images of the Mind Expressed into Physical Form.”
This quote from the book A Happy Pocket Full of Money beautifully captures the connection between your thoughts and reality. What you consistently think about and daydream tends to become your life’s direction.
While it’s not as simple as just thinking and poof, it happens, your imagination plays a significant role in shaping your experiences. Pay attention to what your mind dwells on, and explore the connection between your thoughts and your life’s path.
“Act, Feel, and Perform According to What You Imagine to Be True.”
The book The New Psycho-Cybernetics shares this quote:
“A human being always acts and feels and performs in accordance with what he imagines to be true about himself and his environment. Imagination sets the goal picture, which our automatic mechanism works on. We act or fail to act not because of will, as is so commonly believed, but because of imagination.“
In other words, your actions and feelings are not solely driven by willpower, but rather by what you BELIEVE or IMAGINE is possible. For example, let’s take a goal like fitness. The extent to which you believe you can achieve a fitness goal is closely linked to your ability to actually become a fit person. If you embark on a fitness journey but harbor doubts about your capabilities, or believe it’s not safe to experience success, you tend to find yourself reverting to what we believe is possible for you.
The fascinating part about this is that it’s not merely about sheer willpower as commonly believed. Instead, success hinges partly on your imagination and beliefs. How you view yourself and what you believe to be achievable significantly influences your actions, emotions, and performance. That’s why it’s crucial to foster a positive and empowering self-image so you can align your actions and intentions with what you truly aspire to achieve.
The first step to creating your bright life is to dream boldly and unapologetically. Trust your instincts and embrace your imagination as your super power. It’s THE first step to getting beyond your current circumstances. It’s what makes you special. And don’t ever let anyone else tell you otherwise. 💛
