Imagine it so

Not only can you see and understand what is, you can imagine what is to be. It is a precious and wonderful ability that can make all the difference in the world.

There is no limit to what you can imagine. No matter what may have happened in the past, or what the reality of the present may be, you can imagine the future in any way you wish.

Valuable and flexible as imagination may be, there is something even better. And that is your ability to take the best you can imagine and make it real.

When you combine imagination with action, discipline and commitment, you can literally change your world. Look at any achievement, great or small, and you’ll see a case of imagination that has been forged into reality.

Even as a child, with much less knowledge and experience than you now possess, you had a strong imagination. Just think how much more powerful that ability to imagine has now grown.

Put your imagination to positive use, and focus your efforts on bringing about the best you can imagine.
