Are you having a problem with reaching your goals? Feel like some areas of your life are crushing you, holding you back? Are you mentally creating obstacles that make you feel like attaining your goals is impossible?
Your imagination can be your most powerful ally, or your worst enemy. When you allow your mind to create false restrictions and run wild in your head, you are giving away your power to achieve.
Here’s 2 places you may be letting your imagination carry you the wrong direction:
You know deep inside of you that you can make a difference. You know you have something worth sharing, something that can make a difference in the world. You feel a deep need to let it out and be excited, and motivated. But something has it blocked
You stay the same. Maybe you stay at the same job that you really hate. After all there are the bills? The bills grow in your mind as you use them as an excuse to stay somewhere that you feel stifled, and out of touch.
There’s that constant nagging to do something different, but you’ve given all of your imagination over to the power of not enough.
Try sitting down in a quiet place for a few minutes every day, and imagining life just the way you would like it. Not just life, but imagine yourself in the picture, feel yourself enjoying.
Now think of where you are going to be 5 or 10 years from now in the same place you are today. Spend your imagination time in the place that feels the best to you.
How is your marriage, or relationship going? Are you enjoying having someone to share your life, goals, innermost thoughts with?
Or are you spending your time in your imagination seeing all of the things wrong with your partner? Are you imagining what life would be like with the perfect partner, instead of seeing what you have in your present relationship?
Whether your relationship is good or bad, you can make it infinitely better by spending time in your imagination seeing how good it is at the moment. Take control of your imagination, turn it to seeing how blessed you are to have the relationship you are in.
Your Imagination Is Powerful
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:…. (Proverbs 27:3).
It’s what you are imagining that is controlling your life, for better or worse. Whether it is your career, your relationship with your wife, your neighbors, or your daily commute, you can change it for the better or for the worse with your imagination.
Why not chose something in your life and spend some time imagining how good you feel about it, how free you are to love and be loved. Imagine yourself free of all of stress, anxiety, and burdens of life.
