“Tell me your fantasies and I will show you your dreams.
Write them down and I will read you your future.” ~ Jonathan Wells
One of the most powerful things we have is our imagination…
It’s the door to unlimited possibilities and the key for creating bigger and different things in life.
Without imagination there simply would be no source of creativity!
So the big question is:
How do we create a bridge between imagination and reality?
Here are 5 easy steps to get you started:
Step 1: Write down your dreams and fantasies
Make a journal of the things you fantasize about the most. Describe in detail what they look like and how they’d impact your life if you had them in your physical reality. If some aspects are still unclear, read your description and visualize it again until you can have more clarity. As you are intently visualizing, you are awakening your dreams! Enjoy the process and truly feel the joy and inspiration from turning your imagination into reality.
Step 2: Define the sequence
Every material thing that you see, started in someone’s imagination. To fill the gap between imagination and reality, you need to follow some kind of sequence to bring it into fruition.
For example, let’s say you fantasize about a red car. The first thing you’ll need to do is decide if you’ll buy it or lease it. Will it be a new car or a used model? How much money will you need for the down payment? How long will it take you to gather the money? Will you need a loan for that?
Answering these questions will help you find out what comes first in your sequence so you can reach your goal.
Step 3: Create a plan of action
Now that you’ve defined how much time, money and resources you might need to accomplish your goal, it’s time to create a plan. This plan will allow you to turn your dreams into actionable goals.
Ask yourself what you can do right now to get closer to your vision and what you can do tomorrow, or the following week to ensure it keeps unfolding. Then whatever you decide needs to be done, put a deadline on it.
The most important thing here is to write a tentative plan that will give you direction, so don’t worry if you discover extra steps along the way or if you forgot to include some of the details. The most important thing is to not quit; every small step is progress.
Step 4: Follow your plan of action
Taking action is probably one of the most important steps to filling the gap between imagination and reality, so make sure you stick to your plan and don’t let lack of time or money compromise your motivation.
If you find challenges along the way, keep working on your vision and find solutions to make your dream a reality.
Step 5: Measure your success
Every time you accomplish a task, don’t forget to check it off your list and celebrate it; this will fuel your motivation and keep your vision alive :)
You are training your brain to recognize successes and this fuels your inspiration for future projects.
And remember… your imagination holds the power to create a new reality as it reveals a glimpse of what can be achieved… so never dismiss your fantasies, instead - nurture them!
