Do you remember the days when you were a child and how life was so simple?
I like having those conversations with my loved ones because we reminisce on old childhood memories. And after going through some of my own, I realize why people think they their childhood was simple: because we had less responsibility & our minds were filled with imagination!
I think that the most powerful tool that everyone has is their mind.
You can create so many amazing ideas just by using your imagination. The things that we embrace in our
daily lives such as the iPhone, airplanes, cars…all of these began with an idea. Those inventors had such huge imaginations that came true! It is within imagination that ideas come alive and it begins when we are children: we draw ideas and things that we want and that make us happy.
But as we get older, reality starts to sink in: work, money, bills, credit, beliefs, status, etc. Responsibility starts to sink in and we forget what it feels like to be that child with those amazing thoughts.
So how do we get it back? How do we go back to those days where we just dreamed of the things that we want and love?
Go into a quiet room and put down the cellphone. No texts, no emails, no laptop, no social media posts, just take all of that noise away. Because that is was blocks so many things in your mind. Once you have everything out of the way, take out a piece of paper and a pencil. And start drawing.
We’re bringing this back to grade school: draw what you want. It can be anything. Draw where you see yourself in the future. Draw a world that you want to create whether it’s a talking horse or a flying fire hydrant. And remember that there are NO RULES here. There isn’t a right or wrong way to do this…but you have to give this a try.
So now it’s your time to shine!
I know it may seem a little bit funny but remember when you were young….you didn’t find it funny. You found it to be awesome. Get back to that state of mind and just draw it out. The best places to sharing ideas is in the comments below so make sure you let me know who it goes!
Til next time,
