It always surprises me how much we love routine. It seems like we all spend our life trying to find our comfort zone and a routine to adhere to so we can then live on automatic pilot.
How often do you buy and prepare the same food? How often do you go to the same holiday resort because ‘you know what you are getting’? To me that is stifling. It is like we have lost our sense of adventure because we are afraid it ‘doesn’t work out’ if we try something different.
It makes me wonder where our sense of adventure has gone. I love a challenge, and perhaps while it is happening I have a few wobbles, however at the end of it I always feel better for the achievement.
When we achieve we are inspired to think bigger. Our imagination is unlimited. Whatever we think, we can actually achieve. In his book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill stated; “
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
― Napoleon Hill,
Our imagination is the fuel of our life and when we unleash it’s power we are capable of creating the things we want . The law of attraction relies on our ability to visualise and think big. When we open our mind to possibility and dare to dream big, we are allowing the imagination to have free will.
The film; The Secret, talks about the importance of knowing what it is that you want to achieve. Feeling into your dream allows you to find our if it is exactly how you want it to be. By using the imagination we can dig deep into our wildest dreams and author them as we wish.
Our imagination is an important part of our living a balanced life. When we do not use it, it is easy to become stuck and rigid. This shows up with us living in ways that support the status quo, preferring the comfort zone to pushing the limits. All this at the expense of our own dreams, and the decision not to ‘try’.
It seems sad to me that so many of us do not use our imagination to its full potential, and for some reason feel thwarted or rather threatened by it. To dream big is also to acknowledge that we are not living the life we could so rather than face that we drink more and watch more television; all in the name of stifling our imagination.
Is it time to dream big? Is it time to dare big? Is it time to unleash your imagination and realise your full potential? If not now, when?
