The Power of Imagination

“The power of imagination makes us infinite" ~ John Muir

Growing up, the adults have always labelled me as an over-inquisitive child with an over active imagination.

I dream in colour, despite only being exposed to colour tv after my tot years, considered quite 'late' for my generation, and I remember most of my dreams, with funny story lines.

I always imagined a lot of things, call it day dream, fantasy, little girl's dreams or a folly, foolish or not, I believe in the power of imagination.

Haven't we been exposed to many theories and thinkers who market 'the power of positive thinking', 'the Law of Attraction', the Power of Affirmation, it's all in the mind, mind over matter and many more. It all starts with the mind, right? Starts within oneself then it may be actualized in real life.

People will always judge and doubt. Surround oneself with positive and like-minded people who believe in the power of imagination and the mind.

Learn to ignore the dissenters, the unsupportive and the negative. Take things with a pinch of salt and life won't be as difficult as it it seemed at first.

Do not shut people out, not totally. Yes, the Mind is very powerful and the Power of Imagination and Visualisation had proved to be effective to get things done and achieve goals, however what is success without having your loved ones by your side to cheer and rally for you?

Balance is always the key. Remember that with power, it comes with responsibility. Dream responsibly, may everyone reach within and start imagining positivity.
