If there’s one quote that completely reflects the theory upon which this book is based, it would certainly be that of Albert Einstein:
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
As men and women, we can translate thoughts into things. We can create anything that our mind conceives and deems possible.
It descends that our mind can be both a blessing and a curse; our greatest ally or our worst enemy.
While, if properly directed, our mind can function as a catalyst for progress and development, a contaminated one will surely harm us and make us victims of our own existences.
Hill states that imagination can take the shape of:
- Synthetic Imagination → Through synthetic imagination, our mind works mostly through our past experiences, successes, failures, and the like. Its job is just limited to finding new combinations with “past material”.
- Creative Imagination → This is the form of imagination in which impressions and inspiration take place, and it works only when our mind vibrates at a higher rhythm.
Creative imagination can be stimulated by a strong desire and a clear and well-concocted plan (preferably written).
When we think about the future in terms of opportunities, sketching the various outcomes that our actions might drive us towards, we discover a source of inner energy that will almost instantly make us more prone to work the plan and stick with it through and through.
