“Imagination is more important than knowledge.
For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand,
while imagination embraces the entire world,
and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
– Albert Einstein
How big can you imagine?
This question is really worth considering because you could
say that in a way how big you can imagine is directly related to what
you can create in your career and life.
The scale of your imagination is directly linked to linked to your beliefs i.e. what you
believe controls whether you’ll allow yourself to have something.
If you consider the fact that you’re actually reading this email on a
machine that at one point didn’t exist.
But then someone had an idea, a possibility…
conceived in their imagination and they persisted in making it happen.
Without imagination the world we live in would be very, very different.
The question that concerns me is ‘have you limited your imagination’?
Maybe without realising it, you have accepted certain limitations
in all areas of your business and life.
But what is a limitation other than a belief? And all a belief is, is a set of
thoughts i.e. it can be challenged or expanded.
In my experience real change can happen when we allow
ourselves permission to extend the possibilities of our imagination,
to dream bigger.
How else do great things happen?
And even the best of the best can limit themselves without
realising it’s happened.
Maybe you’re accepting poor results, thinking the market doesn’t suit,
or you’ve let the people around you limit your imagination…
If imagination truly is more important than knowledge, maybe this
week you can spend some time thinking about your absolute ideal
in business, life, health, relationships, fun etc.
It doesn’t mean anything drastic may happen straight away.
Then again it could be the start of something big.
Maybe if more of us activated our imaginations,
anything really could be possible.
