The Power of Imagination By Kate Corbin

March 31, 2009

“To bring anything into your life, imagine that it’s already there.” – Richard Bach.

Imagination is the process of harnessing and utilizing the creative power of the mind. Imagination resides in the boundless realm of the mind where you can travel anywhere at the speed of thought. When you soar with the wondrous creative powers of your imagination, you possess a first-class ticket to the life of your dreams.

Imagine Your Ideal Life. You are not required to accept your present circumstances. As you summon up the feeling of living your ideal life right here right now, you allow the Energy of your thoughts and feelings to produce the physical manifestation that you desire. When you employ the power of imagination, you are no longer limited by external conditions. You are in charge. If you can imagine it, you can experience it.

As you access the power of your imagination, inspiration will bubble up. As you fill your subconscious with thoughts of what you would like to experience, you can bring anything you desire into your life. Imagination is the language through which you communicate with the Universe. As you develop your body through physical exercise, you can develop your imagination through mental exercise.

Exercise Your Imagination

Exercise Your Imagination

Imagination Exercise. Have a clear vision of your ideal life and energize it with the power of imagination. Imagine how your ideal life looks, feels, sounds, smells, and tastes. Each morning spend a few minutes imagining the way you want your day to play out. Imagine feeling great, moving through your day in a strong, vibrant body, enjoying pleasant interactions with others, doing fulfilling work with clarity and purpose. If you are visually oriented, you will see distinct pictures in your mind. It’s OK if you don’t. Imagining with feeling is all that’s required. As you imagine vividly and with feeling, you are creating the circumstances for all your desires to flow to you quickly and easily.

Let’s say you’re planning a vacation to a place you’ve always dreamed of going. It’s a great idea to spend some time imagining how wonderful this vacation will be. You see yourself strolling in a rose garden on a beautiful spring day with a gentle breeze. You feel the thrill of parasailing over a sparkling turquoise sea. You see yourself resting peacefully in a hammock on the beach in perfect weather. When you use your imagination, you can enjoy the same vacation many times – before you go – while you’re there – and when you’re back at the office.

Be There Now! The Universe does not distinguish between what is actually happening now and what you are imagining or remembering. To the Universe, it’s always the Eternal Now. So, in addition to imagining a fabulous future, you can use your imagination to relive the wonderful times of your life. Relive your triumphs and successes – when you did something you weren’t sure you could do. Who says the great moments have to be once-in-a-lifetime events? You can replay and relive them as often as you like, just as you enjoy repeatedly listening to your favorite music or watching your favorite movies or eating your favorite foods. Relive the joy of the vacation, the promotion, the baby’s first steps in your imagination and you will attract even more good times to cherish.

As you charge your imagination with emotion, your mental picture will attract its physical equivalent. Vividly think about what you want and then SEE it clearly in your imagination. The power of imagination speeds up the process from desire to manifestation. As you experience in your imagination what you wish to experience in your life, you will soon be living the life of your dreams.

What are you willing to imagine?

Got Momentum on Your Goals?
By Jill Koenig

I am here to remind you that there has never been a better time in human history to go after your Goals and Dreams than right now.

But you need Momentum.

I set my Goals, took immediate massive action, started the journey and have taken action every single day since then.

What I lacked in technical knowledge, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.

What I lacked in financial backing, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.

What I lacked in skill, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.

Massive action = Momentum

I didn’t wait for everything to be perfect, for the economy to be just right, for every circumstance to line up in my favor- I just got started and took massive action.

I can assure you, whatever you want to do, whatever Goals you aspire to achieve, whatever Dreams you yearn for, you can have them. But not if you don’t ever begin and not if you don’t commit to taking massive action right now today.

The ball is in your court. Always has been, always will be.

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

Whatever you lack, make can up for with massive action.

What can you do today to advance your most cherished Goal?

Take the first step and revise your plan as you go.

Do it.

Do it NOW.

Got Momentum?

Live Your Dreams.

Why Motivational Posters Aren’t Cheesy!

Why Motivational Posters Aren’t Cheesy!
By Harald Anderson

I don’t want to say people are basically negative but…..if there was a camera and it could photograph the pictures in your mind what would it look like? When I asked myself that question it actually made me laugh quite a bit. I like to think of myself as a determined self starter but to be completely honest there are times when I confront a new project and I am scared to death.

One of the principles of success that I learned a long time ago is that either you define the event or the event defines you. This little definition is quite profound and explains why having beautiful posters with inspirational captions can add meaning and value to a companies culture and bottom line.

stepatatime1

Inspiration comes in all colors and styles. But the key point is that if there is something that makes people believe more in their own abilities to succeed I say, that is a good thing. There have been numerous times in my life and career when a simple motivational phrase has worked wonders. How about you?

Here are a few quotes from some motivational posters that have helped me a lot:

“The greater the difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it.”

“Climb as high as you can dream.”

“If you are not living on the edge, you are taking too much room.”

Success in business is due to a number of reasons but FOCUS is definitely one important factor. These messages are often enough to make me believe that I can push through whatever obstacle comes up in my path.

How about you? What legacy will you leave behind for others to emulate?

To Motivate or Not to Motivate…that is the QUESTION.

incurableoptimist

Over the years I have read the biographies of many successful individuals. In so doing, I have discovered that these super achievers view setbacks as a learning opportunity. As I contemplate this basic reality I have learned a few things myself, among them that I can accomplish much more with genuine enthusiasm and a good game plan than with anything else. Also, that it is not persistence that wins but learning from the disappointments.

My company is filled with beautiful images of motivational posters. Not only because we sell them. It is because they work! Motivational posters help to create an environment that is solution oriented. In our company we value solutions and the posters on our walls help reinforce that culture. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can find a problem. The skill and rewards in life arrive when we deliver the solution.

I find this very uplifting. With a little bit of genuine inspiration it is incredible as to what is possible.

When I am inspired… my dreams… become realities!

Be careful what you agree with!

Harald Anderson is the co-founder of Artinspires.com a leading online Motivational Poster gallery. “When Art Inspires, Dreams Become Realities. His goal in life is to become the kind of person that his dog already thinks he is.

I used to use this one as a positive affirmation that I’d look at everyday and repeat over and over again. I’m never short of ideas!

Attitude is the Key to Life!

March 6, 2009

Attitude is the Key to Life…by John Ahern
Sometimes striving for that balance includes a good laugh and a change in your attitude. Laughing and smiling are great therapeutical tools as well as calming to the body and soul. One of my most practised rituals is to always smile while driving. This is very difficult at times and you may find yourself forcing on that smile.

Try it today and every day for the next couple of weeks and watch your attitude to life and especially driving lift. Then discover the truly wonderful feeling of an automatic smile creeping across all the lines of worry and concern as you sit in the driver’s seat.


Read the following attitude changing message sent to me by a good friend.
As you read the following article think about the way you perceive your own attitude. Enjoy and remember to smile…

David received a parrot for his birthday. This parrot was fully grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive. Those that weren’t expletives were, to say the least, rude.David tried hard to change the bird’s attitude and was constantly saying polite words, playing soft music, anything that came to mind. Nothing worked. He yelled at the bird, the bird got worse.

Finally, in a moment of desperation, David put the parrot in the freezer. For a few moments he heard the bird squawking, kicking, and screaming, and then, suddenly, all was quiet.

David was frightened that he might have actually hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out onto David’s extended arm and said, “I’m sorry that I offended you with my language and actions. I ask for your forgiveness. I will try to check my behaviour…”

David was astounded at the bird’s change in attitude and was about to ask what changed him when the parrot continued, “May I ask what the chicken in the freezer did?”

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. You can draw several lessons from this article, like: ” I was blue about my shoes, until upon the street, I met a man with no feet.”
Attitude is the key. I must take responsibility for my own happiness and become “the master of my fate”.

The Written Word sinks into the subconscious quicker!

March 4, 2009

One of the simplest, cheapest and most time-saving methods of reprogramming your subconscious mind is to physically write out your goals.

Why? Because your subconscious mind is programmed through Repetition.

Most people don’t benefit much from books because they read and forget. They hardly practice what they’ve learnt, so most of the information stop at the conscious level.

Slowly, easily and surely, the information will sink into your subconscious and you will begin to think, act and achieve

But in the meantime, keep out those negative thoughts, don’t let them creep in and spoil your harvest….

Keep NEGATIVE seeds out of your positive garden!

Future Champ - on WINNER'S podium!

But remember, you have to work really hard to get to the ‘winners’ positions, you will have tasted failure on a number of occasions – the trick is to bounce back from these defeats, keep moving forwards and upwards. You’ll be a winner if you want it bad enough!
