You dream of a better existence but yet, you do not know how to create the life you want. Ideas and desires float in your mind, but you doubt your power to transform the life you imagine into a reality because you feel that you are living under circumstances that seem to make it impossible.
But think for an instant. What about all the electronics around you? What about traveling through the air? What about the electricity you switch on and off? How do you believe they originate?
Almost everything you use on a daily basis is the direct result of someone’s idea, dream, desire or thought. Even the bed you sleep on, the umbrella you open when it rains or the clothes you wear.
You are a co-creator in this Universe! All of us do possess such an inner power. Most people do not realize that they can, in fact, create the life they want. Some people do not even take the time to think about what they want. And others have ideas of the life they want but do nothing about it.
People, who do know, however, think about ten years ahead and beyond, no matter what their current age. You should reflect on the choices you make and what the future looks like as they will have an impact on you and your family based on what you do today.
Imagination is the Beginning of Creation
What most people seem to overlook often is that the things you are using each day were shaped at first in someone’s imagination.
“Imagination is everything. It is a preview of life’s coming attractions” – Albert Einstein.
You have an incredible capacity to use your imagination which means that you already have in you all that it takes to generate what you want in life! Most people do not use this ability. As a child, you have enjoyed daydreaming and used your imagination to make belief, even if school teachers reprimanded you for doing such things.
But since the dawn of time, how many people have used their imagination to become designers, inventors, writers, and life changers to create new things. Without them, where would we be?
Today, most adults have forgotten their creative side, and very few use their imagination to envision the life they want and create it. Since my toddler years, I have been a dreamer, and yet, for a few years while in my forties, I had given up.
Rarely is a person telling you to dream of the life you want and making it happen? So do not be afraid to believe in your dreams, even the big ones, because you, I and this entire world are creative beings by nature.
Attracting What You want
It is hard to bypass the law of attraction when it comes to creating the life you want. It is perhaps one of the most known laws of the universe. It speaks of you having the aptitude to attract things and make them based on the energy frequencies that you are producing.
What you focus on expands, so the more you align yourself with the vibration of what you want to attract, the more likely it is to manifest in your life. When you begin sending out a particular energy frequency that is aligned with your higher self, it then attracts seamless opportunities and conditions into your life.
To generate what you want, you need to determine your desires and define what you are looking for. You have to focus on what needs to be done and figure out what kind of skills to cultivate.
If beginning now, you decide to imagine the life you would like to live and focus on it each minute, obsessed by it with each breath of your being, then one day you will find yourself living it. Do you still have doubts? I am a living proof of it! It already happened three times in my life, and it is going on again.
Your mind works exactly in the same way as mine because your imagination begins in the same place. It is a mental muscle that you need to activate. So no matter what you believe, you already possess the capacity to use this creativity of yours to build the life you want.

Stop Envisaging What You Don’t Want
Look at what you are and where you are now, your life, job, revenue and even relationship, and understand that it is a direct consequence of the image of yourself you hold in your mind.
Consciously or unconsciously, you are visualizing all the time, you have 65,000 thoughts a day, but if you are not living the life you want, it means that you are visualizing much more often what you don’t want rather than what you want.
So, if you are not happy with your current life and what is in it, then start to imagine what you do want so you can get better opportunities to improve your life and create what you want.
Are there ways to activate your imagination to create the life you want?
Yes, there are!
Activating Your Imagination
To begin with, go to a quiet place and sit down. Imagine you are living a life which you desire. Look at what you want? Do not put any limits or restrictions. Think big. Go crazy.
Do not even think about time and money. Do not wonder if you will succeed. At this instant, only allow yourself to daydream. Is it strange?
Why, remember, flying was considered impossibility not so long ago. The reason a plane flies through the air is that the Wright brothers, like many before, dreamed of flying. Did they know how to create flight when they began with their ideas? Of course not!
When you have imagined the life you want, write it out on a piece of paper as if you are already living it. It means writing down your dream life in the present tense as if it is happening right now.
Now, out loud, read your story and do this every single day. While reading, you must feel that you are living that life here and now, and feel happy and grateful about it.
It is all about your ability to make this routine a daily habit that will generate great rewards! Know that you are using a powerful skill which is the power of your imagination to bring into reality the life you want, in the same way, other successful people did.
