Daily Dose of Inspiration – Controlled Imagination

“Controlled Imagination”

“Would you believe that fantasizing is the “best” way your brain can unintentionally ruin your goals? It seems unlikely, right? The thing is, psychologists have found that while positive thinking about the future is broadly beneficial, too much fantasy can have disastrous results on achieving goals.”

“Instead of being entranced with what the future may bring, we need to learn to love the work here and now. Have you ever noticed that when you think of something desired, in some time your dream comes true, even though you’ve already forgotten about it? It’s not a miracle and neither a coincidence! Its when you let go of the anxiety of the future or of the outcome is when the things come to you. Stop listening to people around you, not because they don’t have your best in their mind but because its only you who knows you reality and the reality of your dreams. Stop seeking validation or confirmation signs from outside. Be your own best friend, convince yourself, know yourself better.”

“The problem with positive fantasies is that they allow us to anticipate success in the here and now. However, they don’t alert us to the problems we are likely to face along the way and can leave us with less motivation—after all, it feels like we’ve already reached our goal. How can we fight this opponent?”

“What you give your love, time and attention to, you get more of in your life. We must become aware of our thoughts. Our thoughts determine our experiences. Each of us has the freedom to accept and embrace whatever thoughts we choose. You possess within the silence of your being the ability to think, create and become whatever you want to become.”
