THE WORKSHOP OF THE MIND

The Fifth Step toward Riches

Everyone is born with the ability to imagine the most wondrous of things, from the young child who sees a train ride across the Rocky Mountains while sitting in the box that expensive and so carefully wrapped Christmas or Birthday present came in is left to one side, to the chid who read Jules Verne’s amazing “From the Earth to the Moon” and is now offering round trip tickets into space as a reality.

Mr. Hill tells us “The imagination is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by man. The impulse, the DESIRE, is given shape, form, and ACTION through the aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind.” “Of all the ages of civilization, this is the most favourable for the development of the imagination, because it is an age of rapid change.  

Although written in the early 20th. Century, these words are as correct today as they were then because every age is an age of new wonders and opportunities, provided we allow our imaginations to see, hear and develop those opportunities.

 He also reports “It has been said that man can create anything which he can imagine”. Maybe he should have added “and believe in”?

So, we now know we all come equipped with the tools to imagine and bring our greatest desires into our chosen reality, but sadly for many, that ability to imagine and dream has been slowly knocked out of us by allowing life, circumstance and often well-meaning friends and family to gradually kill off any ambitions we may have with comments such as “don’t get too big for your boots”, “remember where you came from” and probably the most devastating thing one human can say to another “what’s the point in even trying, you will never amount to anything worthwhile anyway”.

This has certainly been the experience of many who download our e-book for the first time because they are looking for a way out of the place they exist in and hope, however faintly at first, the book will be their ticket to stop simply existing and start living.

Those who continue to step 2 by listening to and getting involved with the weekly free and interactive calls, especially this forum, come to understand imagination mixed with belief, desire, faith and action are incredibly important and that all things are again possible.

Step 3 is of course is to use the Mastermind Group to of senior mentors and contributors to guide the ideas and plans delivered by that re-discovered imagination working with the sub-conscious mind through daily self-talk to our chosen life-style.
