Chapter 6: Imagination
Napoleon Hill said, “It has been said that man can create anything which he can imagine.” I have always been a dreamer. I could imagine stories and scenarios in my head. In fact, I would go to these places in my mind when life got me down. It was an escape for me. There have been times when I wondered if I should be a writer.
But you see, the stories I created were dreams, an escape. It wasn’t until I started the Think and Grow Rich lessons that I began to realize that my dreams could come true! Suddenly, my thoughts took a different turn. I did not want to waste my thoughts on an escape mechanism. I knew that I needed to turn my thoughts, my imagination to what I truly desired.
So, today, I use my imagination and creativity in a different way. I envision the time when I will give my notice at my day job. This is not just a thought it is a creative story inside my head. I SEE the workplace and my boss. I hear myself giving my two-weeks notice. In this scenario, I am joyful and happy and kind.
I also envision building my new home. Finding my dream home online, I memorized the layout. I SEE it decorated the way I want it. I imagine moving into this home with my Dad. This story continues on in my imagination, as I SEE myself opening my home to relatives and friends.
No longer are my thoughts and stories an escape mechanism for me. They are very REAL to me. I KNOW they are coming.
I SEE the money in my bank account. I SEE myself helping others to reach their goals. Today, I am so very happy that I have always been a dreamer.
