You limit your idea of imagination to child’s play. Your imagination can give you everything that you want.
But only if you understand it in simple terms.
But don’t be hard on yourself for not knowing. We were all raised by a generation who didn’t know the answer either.
Of course, that’s not entirely true. What is true however is that it’s on us to fix this world. We’re the movers and shakers.
But that’s a topic I’d rather save that for later.
Let’s get down to business….
Look at your imagination as a laboratory in your mind. It’s where your ideas are first created. From there these ideas slowly appear in your conscious mind.
This is your awareness.
Once this idea makes it to your awareness. You will either give it attention or not. The idea has a split-second to prove itself to you.
Due to social-media among a thousand other things. Our awareness is being stretched in all directions.
There are many ways to improve your attention span. Of course, there are things such as Adderall.
But let’s keep it natural here.
While there are plenty of unnatural things that work. I like to control most of what goes into my body and mind.
I can control my social-media use. That alone does wonders for my attention span. And it’ll do wonders for yours as well.
On the other hand, I can’t control a substance that goes into my body. So that’s why I said let’s keep it natural here.
The single best thing that’s helped me is meditation. And no I’m not talking about hippie Zen master meditation.
It’s non kookoo and ACTUALLY works. Oh, and it only takes 5-minutes a day. Compared to 35 years of poverty. Living in the mountains.
I don’t judge anybody. But I’d rather do something that is proven to work over more woo woo garbage.
But I’m getting ahead of myself again.
As you improve your attention aka awareness. Your ability to create reality improves. There’s nothing magic about this.
All this means is that your mind is clear.
When your mind is clear. You are able to connect with your imagination easily. This is what most people call “the zone” or “flow state”.
Once your awareness and your imagination are connected. You are able to attract money, opportunities, and freedom.
Or at least that’s how it appears to you.
What’s really happening is something much more subtle. In reality, you are acting with full confidence.
Because it is certainty that creates your reality.
Mind and Reality
When you’re connected both your mind and reality are in sync. Let me give you an example from my past.
That way you can fully understand this mind and reality stuff.
I lacked certainty for most of my life. This created a life that was the real-life Matrix. My mind would be somewhere.
But my body was here working at a car dealership.
I’m sitting here in my car on break. I can’t help but feel frustrated with everything. Here I am making $10 an hour.
I’m stuck with this job. Hell, I can just hardly pay my bills and take my girl out. I’ve got way too much on my plate.
I’m trying to….
- Be a boyfriend
- Get to work on time
- Figure out my life
- All while doing this hustle thing
Add to that my dream of moving to Asia. I’m in talks with a guy out there with a possible internship.
From trying to survive my soul-sucking job. To trying to figure everything else out. I’m going crazy with everything.
I know every mindset trick in the book. I think positivly, take cold showers, and haven’t watched TV in years.
Yet my mind is still chaotic and I can’t seem to make any progress.
That was my life for 2 years.
Until one day everything clicked as I finished up with a customer. I remembered hearing something from a Chris Deoudes podcast.
He talked about how you’ve got to just make a decision. In other words, your head won’t be in the game.
And that was exactly what my life was like.
- I turned down the invitation to Asia.
- I quit my job and drove for UBER.
- And haven’t looked back since.
While my life continued to have its ups and downs. I smile when I tell you my life is much better now.
I ONLY do work that I enjoy.
I’ve got great friends and business partners.
And best of all….
This is all because my mind and reality are connected.
I don’t live in two worlds anymore. My imagination is just as real as reality.
Why? Because you and I create our realities the same way.
How to Use Your Imagination to Create Reality
You see what’s possible with your imagination. Be that something that you want to buy or making more money.
It ALL starts with your imagination.
But don’t stop there. That’s where “the masses” have stopped for thousands of years. Never taking the next step forward.
Instead of keeping everything in your imagination. You will take it to the next step by using your attention combined with action.
And then through your actions, you build your vision. Your imagination is simply the blueprint for your reality.
As you can see now. This whole imagination thing isn’t complicated at all. It’s simple and honestly common sense.
There’s no magic to any of it.
Let everyone else sit around imagining this and that. But for the love of God please understand this….
Your Attention + Action = How to Use Your Imagination
