Chapter 6 Imagination


The Workshop of the Mind


The Fifth Step toward Riches


Your imagination is responsible for all creative effort. New ideas begin here and you must keep your imagination focused on your defined major purpose. Imagination is an invaluable tool for your progress along the path to success because it is responsible for creating everything new.


Imagination takes two forms; synthetic and creative. Synthetic imagination combines previously recognized ideas, concepts or facts in a new way or puts them to a new use. Synthetic imagination makes use of all available knowledge which you can use to transform your vision into reality.


Creative imagination is based in your subconscious mind. It is the way you recognize new ideas and new information. Impressing your major purpose on your subconscious mind works to stimulate your creative imagination.


 Both synthetic and creative imagination become stronger with use, just as any muscle or organ of the body develops through repeated use.


 Desire is only a thought, an impulse. It is abstract, and of no value, until it has been transformed into its physical counterpart. Synthetic imagination will be used most frequently in the process of transforming the impulse of desire into money. However, be aware, that you may face circumstances and situations which demand use of the creative imagination as well.


Do not become discouraged if you do not fully comprehend these principles. Above all, do not stop or hesitate in your study of these principles until you have read the book at least THREE times.
