What-is & Wanted vs. Unwanted: daydream

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

Albert Einstein

What a powerful—and empowering—concept. Powerful because our mental images can become our lives and empowering because imagination is available to everyone.

I’d like…

I often hear someone say, “I’d like…” and then describe some different life for themselves.

Sometimes it’s a different career they describe. Or a simplified lifestyle. Other times it’s a more loving and intimate relationship. Or a creative pursuit they’d like to devote more time to.

However, there’s a stark difference in what happens depending on their description.

Daydream the details

Some merely stop at “I’d like..” or “I wish…” While others go into rich detail about the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touch of that imagined state.

Those who delve deep into their imagination and truly envision and describe that new life seem much more likely to witness its fruition.

Shift your imagination into high gear. Give yourself permission to daydream—and cultivate this built-in tool for imagining and creating your world and life.
