From Fantasy To Reality

Now there is something I need to tell you. Imagination is a wonderful thing and it is how many wonderful inventions and other creations come about. There is however an aspect of it that needs to be guarded against these days.

You have the opportunity now to create things that you've never realized could be created. However if you dwell too much on fantasy - I'm not talking about what you produce for others or stories you tell or anything like that - I'm talking about imagining things over and over in your mind or fantasizing about things over and over in your mind that are benevolent, that are good, that are fun but not taking it any further that that.

This is something that has been entertaining and acceptable in the past but now so many benevolent inventions need to be created even if you just talk it up with others and suggest - maybe it's possible.

So bring those good fantasies out of the closet and apply in some way, even if you just write a letter to somebody and say, "Hey, maybe this could be created. How about this way or how about that way." It might just be more possible these days than you think.

So just a little note to say - I think it can be done. It doesn't have to be a fiction. Goodlife.

Yes Robert,
That is a big issue...I am having workshops about the use of imagination and too many students use imagination as a drug against action...and those who move to the action step get very good results...
but fear of failure is an important aspect...How to work on fears of action...? An important question I think.

Greetings Patrice, sorry to take so long to acknowledge your comment.

As you often do my friend you have brought up a good point and I feel that it deserves a lengthy answer which I will be making soon in various parts on this blog.

Just to let you know I have been considering how to answer your question. Goodlife.
