Hill tells us that “ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes. Ideas are products of the imagination.” and he also tells us that if we can’t see money in our imagination then we will never see it in our bank account.
The second step of the self confidence formula is “ I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.” Our imaginations have become weak after years of listening to negative news and negative people squashing our hopes and neutering our dreams so like our muscles we have to strengthen them again with this kind of concentration or visualization using our imaginations. It’s brain exercise!
When I first came to mentoring for free and started doing lessons I was basically using synthetic imagination, copy and pasting a book report from what I was seeing already in print. ( Not to say that his words are not important but they were intended to get us thinking differently as they affect our thought process) I didn’t know what to write, I had to think hard. When I had been in the mastermind long enough though I started transitioning somewhat towards the creative imagination because I was feeding off the thoughts of other minds and getting ideas from God. Hill says it like this, “It is through this faculty that thought vibrations from the minds of others are received. It is through this faculty that one individual may “tune in,” or communicate with the subconscious minds of other men. AND the creative faculty becomes more alert, more receptive to vibrations from the sources mentioned, in proportion to its development through USE
That is why I feel that this mastermind is crucial weekly. If you mention the TAGR book to someone and they say Oh yes, I read that book and I think I still have it…..IT IS NOWHERE NEAR THE SAME THING as writing lessons and masterminding. Studying it over and over.
Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for giving us this platform to grow…because….JUST READING THE BOOK doesn’t come close. And thanks to all my friends and mastermind family! And like Marty Roe says “We are MFF”
