''To fly as fast as thought, to anywhere that is.'' ''He said, you must begin by knowing that you have already arrived.''
A man may imagine things that are false, but he can only understand things that are true, for if the things be false, the apprehension of them is not understanding.
Act as if you have already achieved your goal and it is yours.
All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination, Imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth.
All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.
An idea is salvation by imagination.
An unimaginative person can neither be reverent or kind.
Anyone who thinks the sky is the limit, has limited imagination.
Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real.
Before I put a sketch on paper, the whole idea is worked out mentally. In my mind I change the construction, make improvements, and even operate the device. Without ever having drawn a sketch I can give the measurements of all parts to workmen, and when completed all these parts will fit, just as certainly as though I had made the actual drawings. It is immaterial to me whether I run my machine in my mind or test it in my shop. The inventions I have conceived in this way have always worked. In thirty years there has not been a single exception. My first electric motor, the vacuum wireless light, my turbine engine and many other devices have all been developed in exactly this way.
Begin to imagine what the desirable outcome would be like. Go over these mental pictures and delineate details and refinements. Play them over and over to yourself.
By going over your day in imagination before you begin it, you can begin acting successfully at any moment.
By visualizing your goals, you can get your subconscious to work toward making these mental pictures come true.
Capability means imagination…
Celebrate what you want to see more of.
Death is the tyrant of the imagination.
Everything you can imagine is real.
First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.
First have being in your mind. Make real in your mind then bring that being into reality. The genius is he who sees what is not yet and causes it to come to be.
For imagination sets the goal ''picture'' which our automatic mechanism works on. We act, or fail to act, not because of ''will,'' as is so commonly believed, but because of imagination.
