The Power of Imagination
Your imagination is a powerful tool that can reveal your purpose to you, simply by looking inside.
Once you know your purpose, you can use your imagination even further to make it a reality. You will be able to plan for the future and set goals.
At one time or other, things like cars, planes, iPhones, even books were just a thing of someone’s imagination.
They hadn’t been created before. There was no precedent to what was in the creator’s imagination. But through the power of imagination and will, they made their dreams a reality. They achieved an outcome they desired.
My imagination didn’t allow me to even consider such an idea, because I already had a set idea of myself and what I could accomplish. Eventually, my perceptions changed, and my imagination gave me the courage to start writing.
Soon my writing gathered steam, and so did my confidence — I was really writing a book and all because I held the belief that I could!
Many soon-to-be authors struggle with asking themselves, “Why me? What makes me qualified to be an author? Who would listen to me?”
We all have a story. Everyone’s story matters. Maybe telling your story will help you in more ways than you could imagine. Even if sharing your story only impacts the life of one person, isn’t that worth doing it?
How would it change your life?
What opportunities would be possible?
Who needs to hear your story the most? The answer to this question might surprise you.
You can fill yourself with an excitement for the possibilities and even the uncertainty of taking new chances, which may overtake any fears you have. In my experience, the biggest loss is the risk you never took.
There is inspiration all around you. It’s in your home, community, workplace, schools, clubs, spiritual centers and so on.
Do you know your topic, but don’t know how to get started writing? Or maybe you know you want to write a book, but haven’t solidified your topic.
Start looking around you and take inspiration from your world. It could be in a conversation with a friend, an interaction with a neighbor, a book you read or something you’ve perceived in your surroundings.
Relieve the pressure of writer’s block. Just by giving yourself more creative leeway to let your thoughts flow freely, you will discover your story.
Do you understand or have the solution to a problem that other people also experience? The probability is pretty high that you are not alone in any issue.
When your mind is given a problem, especially one it wants to solve, you’ll really start to get creative. There are plenty of problems to solve. Your purpose may very well be to help people solve them!
Think of when you are most creative. Put yourself in those situations more often.
Keep a pen and paper handy, or your smartphone if you prefer to write digitally. There’s no doubt your story will reveal itself when you give it room to grow.
