Imagine Your Future

All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
Brian Tracy
Live out of your imagination, not your history.
Stephen Covey
We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do certain things, we can accomplish those goals.
Stephen Covey
I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see.
Duane Michals

The imagination plays a vital role in shaping the future of successful people. Inside every successful person is an imagination that permitted him or her to visualize his or her future. They were able to place themselves in their dreams, which in turn allows them to make choices and decisions that move them closer to their goals and their successes. Each of us can choose to open our hearts, minds and souls to possibilities or not. It is as Henry Ford stated, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”

Consider the possibilities and have fun in the playground of imagination! What do you have to lose by seeing yourself as everything you hope to be for a few minutes? Place yourself a year or two in the future and imagine yourself in your “dream” life. What are you doing? Who are you doing it with? Where are you? What are you feeling, seeing, hearing, touching, tasting and smelling? Explore all your senses in your future self. Look back at your past/present self from your future self, and consider everything you did to get you to where you are now (in the future)? This takes practice, but once you make this a daily ritual, you will see events unfold before you that you probably never imagined before. Try and delight in this. See what happens. Ultimately, every choice is up to you.

  1. Every choice certainly is. We’ve no one to blame for our lot than ourselves. It is difficult to accept that concept. A job, a marriage, debt, laughter… All choices, and decisions we made and accepted. Where shall I be in two years… What a great idea to ponder today… Thanks!

    • I find that when I consider my future in my imagination, the reality turns out even better. In my youth, I used to journal about where I saw myself in 3, 5 and 10 years. It has been interesting to look back at my journal to see how most of it came to be and how much of it I surpassed. Now when I play in my imagination; I visualize more specifics of my future with details…my future self reflects back on how I got to that point in my life. After doing this little game I start to see more clearly what steps I need to take now to get me to my future self. It is quite a remarkable activity for me.

      • You seem to be proving that energy follows thought. The universe abhors a vacuum. When we imagine we create the seed that the universe, the Divine, will nourish.
