Imagination can help you not only win at life but achieve your dreams + goals!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been an artist, embracing and expressing myself in different forms. But it’s also held me back and as I dove more into personal development it showed me how much.

Especially when I sold my artwork at festivals and people would tell me one or all of the following:

  • I wish I had your talent
  • I am not creative
  • I don’t have the skills

And the truth is that they are false and limiting beliefs you picked up or imposed on yourself throughout the years.

But just because you don’t write, draw, crochet or paint, doesn’t mean you don’t have talent, that you are not creative or have skills. They may just be looking a bit different what is being understood as creative, talented or skilled.

You at some point made the decision to not bother because you haven’t given yourself permission to feel talented, to be skilled or to feel creative.

Those words: talented, skilled, creative…they are open to interpretation!

Imagination can help you overcome the challenges you are facing!

Think back for a moment to your childhood and remember the times you

  • were in art class and were given a prompt
  • were hanging out at the playground with your peers
  • were playing with your siblings or friends

And then remember the games you played, the stories you told and the dreams you talked about what you would become one day or do for a living.

This is how imagination can help you!

You didn’t wonder or tell yourself that you are not talented, creative or skilled.

If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand.

Bob Proctor

Imagination moves you into visualizing what you love to be, do and have.
Imagination taps into your current talents and gives you a starting point.
Imagination seeks out your inner child that believed in the impossible.

When I was about 13 years old, I dreamed of being a famous singer and actress. I would sing loudly going to the grocery store. I didn’t know then that this isn’t the way to be discovered, but I fueled my imagination and believed it was possible.

Now I am not a famous singer and actress and enjoy a night out singing karaoke, but more importantly, I have learned to use that imagination of when I was a teenager to fuel my dreams.

And in 2019 I was an extra in a movie (yet to be released) but sometimes our imagination plants seeds.

When you say you don’t have skills, talents or that you are creative, maybe it’s time to challenge yourself.

Is there a specific thing you would like to be doing but made excuses because you or someone else told you that you are not talented?

  • Have you bothered to take a class to learn a talent or a skill?
  • Have you ever solved a problem?
  • Have you ever helped someone with something that they perhaps didn’t know?
  • Do you have a career that requires specific knowledge?

I ask these questions so you can be honest with yourself about your talents, skills and your creativity.

  • A bookkeeper has a skill and a talent.
  • Tax accountants are creative (and not in an illegal way)
  • Musicians are creative – some natural and some have dedicated themselves to a skill.
  • Handymen are skilled, talented and creative.
  • Mechanics are skilled, talented and creative.
  • Real Estate agents? Yep them too.

And they every one of them has or is always tapping into their imagination in order to do what they love to do.

So isn’t it time that you too embrace your imagination, to give yourself permission to believe it’s possible and decide to follow the activities you would like to be doing.

Saying I wish has never made dreams come true. Even lottery winners had to take action. Deciding and committing, now that has changed lives.

You are only limited by your own thoughts and ideas of what life is or should be.

If you want to win at life, tap into your desires: What do you want to do?

It doesn’t have to be to make a living, it could be just a hobby.

  • Now take that and make it a goal.
  • Develop an action plan.
  • Commit to your goal and plan.

And if your objections are that you don’t have time, then frankly it isn’t important enough to you.

But in as little as 5-minutes your imagination can help you:

  • Learn a new skill that will help you move forward
  • Embrace current talents and expand on them 
  • Acknowledge that you are a creative human being

So if you really want to win at life, then tap into that imagination of yours and know that no matter what you do for a living or have as a hobby, you are creative, talented and skilled. 

If you are finding it difficult to use your imagination, own your skills and talents then join me in The Gathering. 

In The Gathering, you will rise above the doubts, limiting beliefs and your old stories, because isn’t it time that it’s time you tap into your inner child and not be inhibited by outside constraints?
