M2 | CONTEST | Day 48
IMAGINATION....One of the greatest free gifts we have.
My girlfriends son looked up at me "Dougal do your realise that I will be seven tomorrow." I smiled at him knowing that tomorrow he would have his party at home..my girlfriends country residence, she has a big garden. Jumping castles, water slides....
It suddenly occurred to me that this precious little boy with exitement shining in his eyes would sleep fitfully and would wish tomorrow would come as soon as possible. The thing was..he was living in the moment. He was so focused on the fact that this was his time, nothing else mattered.
He could clearly visualise what was going to happen almost as if it was happening right before those shining eyes.
As we grow we tend to lose that skill. It gets knocked out of us at school. Write on the lines. Do not go outside the borders of the page.
What a shame since IMAGINATION is the greatest gift that we have been given and we need to learn how to get it back.
Visualisation is critical for you to get to where you want to go. Those of us on a tranformation journey need...no MUST be able to see ourselves as we want to be...as if it were today.
Once you can do that the subconscious starts it's work and finds ways to get us there.
The great fun though is in the journey.... The highs and lows, the triumphs and the tragedies...for once you get to your destination..... Then what.
That little boy has imagined this day for ages...he has sold his mother on the outline of what he wants to do with his friends on his birthday, for a long time. He has dreamed grand dreams of sailing down a water slide and bouncing off the jumping castle walls. Of eating cake and opening presents, of happy laughter and smiling faces.
And so it will be. He saw it long before it actually happened.
We can learn a lot from Children.
