There are many paths to success, all of which benefit from both an active imagination and an awareness of reality. Many people use imagination to create pictures of their future success. Their mental pictures are the fuel to create a new reality.
In the words of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless. Think about your current reality for a moment. Now imagine what could be, close your eyes and feel what it would be like to live in a new and different reality – the one you really want.
But in between imagining what is possible and creating our reality lies the crucial step of checking-in. We need to know what the current reality is – what actually exists. Without a check-in, there is the possibility of a disconnect between the real and abstract and this disconnect can hinder our progress. We may need to make changes to our current reality because, if we don’t, our imagination could take us in the wrong direction. As Albert Einstein said, reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one.
Creating your own reality is a choice. The alternative is to be passive and settle for a life you don’t want and, that too, is a choice. For me, living a fulfilled life is about being active – choosing to see possibilities and create the life you want and value.
Your reality – your choice!
