The Workshop of the Mind
The Fifth Step toward Riches
The imagination is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by man. The impulse, the DESIRE, is given shape, form, and ACTION through the air of the imaginative faculty of the mind.
MAN’S ONLY LIMITATION, within reason, LIES IN HIS DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF HIS IMAGINATION. He has not yet reached the apex of development in the use of his imagination faculty.
According to Mr. Hill, the imaginative faculty functions in two forms. One is known as “synthetic imagination,” and the other as “creative imagination.” SYNTHETIC IMAGINATION: - Through his faculty, one may arrange old concepts, ideas, or plan into new combinations. This faculty creates nothing. It merely works with the material of experience, education, and observation with which it is fed.
CREATIVE IMAGINATION: - through the faculty of creative imagination, the finite mind of man has direct communication with Infinite Intelligence. It is the faculty through which “hunches” and “inspirations” are received. It is by this faculty that all basic, or new ideas are handed over to man.
We must center our attention, for the time being, on the development of the synthetic imagination, because this is the faculty which you will use more often in the process of converting desire into money. Transformation of the intangible impulse, of DESIRE, into the tangible reality, of MONEY, CALLS FOR THE USE OF A PLAN, OR PLANS. These plans must be formed with the aid of the imagination, and mainly, with the synthetic faculty.
