Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge

Imagination is more important than knowledge is a bold statement. Last week I talked about specialized knowledge and how to organize and direct knowledge to make it powerful. Today I’m continuing with the 13-steps to gain riches as written in the book, Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill. In his book, Hill gives us 13-steps to acquire wealth. The same steps and techniques can be used to acquire anything. This is the fifth step, imagination, and how imagination is more important than knowledge.

The Importance Of Imagination

One of my favorite sayings is, and I say it a lot, is everything begins in the mind. Disneyland, McDonald’s, Apple, great novels, music, and movies all started in someone’s mind. They began as a thought and with imagination became an idea.

Imagination is the workshop where people formulate their plans. The imaginative part of your mind is what spurs you into action. Without imagination, the Wright brothers would have never gotten off the ground and shown us we could fly. You are only limited by the use of your imagination.

Two Forms Of Imagination

There are two forms of imagination in your mind, synthetic and creative. Synthetic imagination creates nothing. It works with the information it is given, your observations, education, and experience. This is where you can organize old concepts into new combinations and plans.

Creative imagination is when your finite mind is connected to Infinite Intelligence. Hunches and inspirations are received by your creative imagination. It only works when your mind vibrates at an exceedingly fast rate, such as when you focus on a strong desire (your definite purpose) and mix it with emotion. It is through emotion that you increase your mind’s rate of vibration.

The Faculty Of Creative Imagination

Great men and women of the world in all walks of life owe their success to the faculty of creative imagination. They knew how to utilize their minds to turn their definite purpose from an idea into reality. Your imagination just like your body becomes stronger with use. Your imagination like your muscles become weaker through inaction.

To achieve your goals, you must first focus on developing your synthetic imagination. It is necessary for forming your plans. Once your plans are in your synthetic imagination you must commit them to paper. Writing your plans is the first step in converting your thoughts into your reality.

Successful People Use Their Imagination

Ideas are the product of imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge because knowledge comes from your imagination. Most people, even the most successful, didn’t know how to take their ideas and make them work. They used imagination, both synthetic and creative to transform their ideas into reality.

Use your synthetic imagination to formulate your plans on how to achieve your goals. Develop your creative imagination to provide the inspiration and ideas from Infinite Intelligence. Would you like to be in a better place in life this time next year? If so, find your definite purpose, write down a plan for how to make it happen, and begin developing your imagination. We live in an unlimited universe so anything can happen.

The Power Of Gratitude Journaling – Ep 15

I hope you enjoy my latest podcast, The Power Of Gratitude Journaling – Ep 15. Gratitude journaling begins my day focusing on the positive aspects of my life.

Join My Team!!

The Power Of Gratitude Journaling -Ep 15

Yesterday was just that, yesterday. It is gone, finito, kaput, never to come back. It is in the past and considered history. There’s nothing I can do about what happened yesterday. Yesterday was not one of my better days. For whatever reason, I didn’t have energy and my mind was not as sharp as it usually is. I couldn’t focus on the things I wanted to accomplish. No matter what I tried, caffeine, energy foods, and supplements, I just felt like I wanted to go back to sleep and my brain was in a fog.

As I crawled into bed at the end of the day, feeling like I had not made any progress towards my goals, I gave thanks. I was thankful that I was given that day. Thankful that I got to spend time with my family, and thankful for everything I did have. There was nothing I could do about that day except to give thanks for being given that day and what I had in my life. When I woke up this morning, the first thing I did was give thanks for all the things I have, and all the things I will have in the future.

My Morning Routine

I do the same things every morning which begins my day in a grateful mood. I get out of bed when my eyes open, which is somewhere between 3 AM and 5 AM. Once I’m awake, I swing my legs out of bed, sit up, and give thanks for everything that I have. I navigate my way in the dark to the kitchen, giving thanks as I walk. Next, I drink 24 ounces of water and sit down in front of a writing pad and a pen. I then write down 10 things I am grateful for. After that, I send out love from my heart to three people whom, for whatever reason, I don’t particularly get along with. I then say a prayer to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is a prayer of thankfulness for my past, present, and future. Finally, I meditate and visualize my future.

Afterward, I go for a walk enjoying the coolness of the air, the darkness, and the beautiful bright stars and planets in the sky. While I’m walking I’m thinking about positive ideas and how happy I am. I return home and begin my exercise regimen of the day. During my walk and work out, while I’m breathing heavy and feeling the sweat rolling down my face, I have thoughts and ideas that flood into my brain. These are the inspirations that I sit down and write about. I then pour me a cup of coffee and begin my day.

Being Grateful

It’s difficult to measure success. For me, the easiest way to measure success is in gratitude. Being thankful for what you do have. This is why I begin every day by journaling the things that I’m grateful for. It begins my day in the right frame of mind to be successful and to face every challenge and obstacle that’s placed in front of me.

What is it that you are thankful for? I encourage everyone to sit down, get a gratitude journal, and list those things that you have in your life that make you feel grateful. If you have something in particular that you are thankful for and would like to share, please comment below. I would love to read them. Always remember that whatever happened yesterday you cannot change. Whether it was a good day, a great day, a bad day, or a terrible day, it is gone, never to return. Today is a new day, be thankful for what you have.

The Power Of The Unconscious Mind

Our minds are very powerful instruments. It is said that we only utilize 10% of the power of our brains. Think about all the wonderful things man has accomplished with only 10%. Can you imagine the great things we would see if we could tap into the other 90%? Our minds are so powerful that they can store our every thought and emotion. Depending on your thoughts and emotions this can be seen as good or bad. Positive thoughts will lead to a wonderful life. On the other hand, negative thoughts and emotions can hold you back from living your dreams. The power of the unconscious mind is unlimited.

A man is a by-product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.
~ Mahatma Gandhi

A strong and healthy mind is the foundation of strength needed to conquer all things.
~ Tasha McCray

Releasing The Negative

The power of the unconscious mind is only limited by your negative thoughts. Luckily, you can release the negative challenges you are having. There are countless benefits you will attain from releasing these negative thoughts and emotions. Some of the negative energy that you hold onto are:
Anger
Fear
Pride
Resentment
A Limiting Mindset
and more…..

How we fare in any given situation depends on the conduct of our body, speech, and mind. Since the mind is the chief, a disciplined mind is essential.
~ Dalai Lama XIV

Never underestimate the Power of the Mind. Persist in creating new thoughts to prevent falling back into negative patterns. It is an ongoing struggle and you have to commit to winning if you are to succeed.
~ Bob Proctor

The Power Of The Unconscious Mind

I’m currently reading a book titled, You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hays that was recommended to me. This is an outstanding book by an accomplished author. Louise Hays believes in positive affirmations and beliefs. By repeating positive affirmations you can release the negative energy stored in your mind. She believes through a daily routine of repeating positive affirmations you can change your health. In her book, she states that you can heal diseases and chronic illnesses through positive affirmations.

Now, I am not 100% convinced that I could heal myself without medicine. I need to conduct more research on this phenomenon. I do know that your body reacts to the thoughts in your mind. If you believe you are going to die, no medicine can save you. I have read stories about people who have healed themselves utilizing only their thought process.

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.
~ Abraham Lincoln

Any idea, plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind through repetition of thought.
~ Napoleon Hill

Medical Miracles

In the book, The Secret, Dr. John Hagelin, Quantum Physicist, talks about the power of our thoughts. He says, “Our body is the product of our thoughts. We are beginning to understand in medical science the degree to which the nature of thoughts and emotions determines the physical substance and structure and function of our bodies.”

I’m sure you’ve heard of the “placebo effect” and how the power of suggestion affects the outcome of experiments. When you take any type of medicine, you might not know exactly how the medicine works. You still take the medicine because you trust your doctor and believe the medicine will work. How much of your recovery is due to the medicine, and how much is due to your belief?

Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to a solution.
~ David J. Schwartz

Convince your mind and you can do anything!
~ Avijeet Das

Cathy Goodman

I also read in, The Secret, about a woman named Cathy Goodman. Cathy Goodman was diagnosed with breast cancer. She truly believed in her heart, with her strong faith, that she was already healed. Every day she would say, “Thank you for my healing.” She believed she was healed and saw herself as if cancer were never in her body.

She would watch very funny movies to combat the stress in her life. She would sit with her husband and laugh. By laughing, she released all her negative energy. Laughter is the best medicine. She couldn’t afford to allow any negative thoughts into her mind while she was trying to heal herself. Cathy was completely healed three months after she was diagnosed. She did not go through any radiation or chemotherapy treatments.

Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.
~ Mary Kay Ash

Focused mind power is one of the strongest forces on earth.
~ Mark Victor Hansen

Morris Goodman

Another inspirational story I found in, The Secret is the story of The Miracle Man, Morris Goodman. On March 10, 1981, Morris was piloting an airplane when it developed engine trouble and crashed. His spinal cord was crushed and he was completely paralyzed. He broke the first and second cervical vertebrae, destroying his swallowing reflex. His diaphragm was destroyed and he couldn’t breathe.

All he could do was blink his eyes. The doctor said he would be a vegetable for the rest of his life. That was what the doctors thought, but that wasn’t what Morris thought. He pictured himself being a normal person again, walking out of that hospital. The only thing he had to work with was his mind.

Breathe

Morris kept thinking, over and over, “Breathe deeply.” He thought this day after day until he was finally weaned from the respirator. The doctors could not provide an explanation for what happened. He set a goal to walk out of the hospital on Christmas day. When Christmas arrived, that’s exactly what he did. He walked out of the hospital on his own two feet. Morris sums up his life with six words, “Man becomes what he thinks about.”

These are just a few stories that demonstrate the unlimited potential of the human mind. As it says in Philippians 4:13, “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.” It doesn’t say that you can do some things or a few things. It says that you can do ALL things. This quote alone shows the unlimited potential of your mind. All you have to do is believe in your heart and give thanks.
