Be Creative! : Unlocking Your Imagination

Unlocking Your Imagination

By Arthur Levine

In order to unlock our imaginations and realize the promise that each of us has to do more with our lives, we have to strip away years of inhibitions that have kept us from fulfilling our dreams.

Do not give in to your fear that something will go wrong if you do not follow a set format. Don't be afraid to break lifelong patterns of behavior.

Admit to yourself that you are a good and worthwhile person who is entitled to have your dreams come true. Start to believe in yourself.

Make note of your secret dreams and desires, and ask yourself why you shouldn't try and fulfill them. Some of them may open up a whole new path to your personal fulfillment.

Concentrate on the strange thoughts that pop into your mind and do not discount them out of hand. Some of them may contain the seeds of some really worthwhile endeavor.

Ask yourself what would happen if you were to peruse some of these thoughts and dreams. Would they help make you a better and happier person?

Try and separate in your mind those truly imaginative thoughts that can help you reach your goals and objectives from those that would have a destructive influence on your life.

Analyze even those imaginative thoughts that seem weird or strange to you. Is there a way to reconfigure them to help you achieve your objectives?

Exercise your right to conjure up from the deepest recesses of your mind those imaginative thoughts that can improve your life and the lives of loved ones and friends.

Use your newfound imagination to do something constructive and wonderful with your life. Use your imagination to believe in what you cannot see or understand. Use it to find more faith. Sometimes it takes imagination to conceive of what we cannot comprehend. Wouldn't you like to put a little magic in your life right now — use your imagination? •
