Being prepared is one thing, but this quote is asking you to take it to the next level. Noah was tipped off that the flood was coming, but life doesn’t always work out that way. You almost have to assume that something bad is going to happen at some point in your future, so why wait until it occurs to try to deal with it then?
Prepare yourself for a disaster and if it doesn’t come even better. But if it does you’ll be able to handle it better and get through it more easily. It’s not a form of negative thinking to prepare for hardship, in fact it is a way of preserving your positive thinking even through rough times.
This is an amazing quote that may sound simple but has a lot behind it. It’s saying that whatever you can dream up in this life, you can achieve. But it brings up an important element, one that many overlook. You have to believe that you can achieve it, which is the part that trips up most people. You can have a big goal, or a big dream, but if you don’t believe you deserve it, or you don’t believe you can accomplish it, you won’t. Spend equal time on building up your belief and dreaming about what you want to accomplish.
Those that dare to dream move the world forward. Everything that’s ever been accomplished by mankind started off as a dream in someone’s mind before it became a reality. That includes the city and country you live in, the house where you reside, and the car that you drive. It’s all thanks to the dreamers out there, and you can be one of them, just as long as you make it a priority to dream and then carry out the visions of your dreams. The real saviours are those that dream and then follow through on their dreams with inspired action.
If you like watching movie previews before a film, you may like the idea of your imagination acting as your own sneak peek of what to expect. That’s because you dream it up in your brain first before it happens.
This can work to your benefit, but also to your detriment, so be sure to use it advantageously and imagine your life the way you want it, rather than the way you don’t want it. If you aren’t actively using your imagination you’ll grow stagnant, and you’ll notice that your life hasn’t really been improving or worsening, just kind of hovering in the same spot.
“The power of imagination makes us infinite.” ~John Muir
You use your imagination each day, even if you think you don’t. No matter how big or small your accomplishments today, it all began in your imagination. You can use it as much or as little as you want, but it’s the starting point for everything that happens in your life, from what you eat, to what you wear, to what you do. It all begins as pictures in your mind. Be sure to harness the full power of your imagination to dream up bigger and better things for yourself. It’s the part of you that taps into the infiniteness of the universe, so don’t neglect it.
