“We are more often frightened than hurt;
and we suffer more from imagination than from reality.”
Last week, I was walking by a public green in Dublin city when something
strange caught my eye.
A man had a phone held in front of him and he was shrieking with
childlike joy at something he appeared to have caught
– except that there was nothing there!
You may have heard about the latest Pokemon App (Pokemon Go)
that has become an overnight download sensation because it
employs augmented reality technology.
You can catch things that aren’t there really by looking through your phone….
One of the most impactful insights I’ve had from working
with top performers is encased in the above quote.
The most significant block to you achieving more of your goals
and a better quality of life is usually caught up in your thinking.
And very often, your thinking is a block to reality – i.e. what’s really going on.
I’m not sure the likes of Pokemon Go is helping the cause.
Certainly the recent attacks in France and the US, are examples
of people losing touch with reality.
Your imagination is amazing – when you can harness it for good.
But reality has just as much power – when you’re in it.
The question is, are we in it? Or are we suffering from our imagination?
