Our lives are ruled by our beliefs, and what we believe about ourselves often becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.
I am infinite.
Choosing to believe this one simple thought has led to a complete turnaround in my day on countless occasions. Over time, these days are adding up to a big improvement in my life.
When your confidence takes a knock you probably have a hard time believing you’re capable of washing the dishes, let alone anything more complicated. But luckily, you don’t need to justify it.
All you need is your imagination.
Whenever you experience difficulties in life, remember the power that lies within you. No matter what your situation, you always have had, and always will have, the potential within you to create magic.
This power has nothing to do with your past achievements or external circumstances. It depends only on your ability to let your mind gravitate towards the things that light you up inside.
It is the power of the imagination that makes us infinite. Our imagination is far greater than the sum of all our experiences. We have the ability to draw inspiration from our past, and dream up new worlds which build on these magical moments.
You may not be where you want to be just yet, but you still have the capacity to appreciate beauty and feel peace in the here and now. You can create something beautiful with what you already have, and you can share that with others.
When a magnificent scene of natural beauty takes your breath away, know that you are only able to feel its magic because it resonates with the magic inside of you.
If a vision truly resonates with your soul, the possibility exists for it to become real. Even if you have temporarily lost faith in yourself, a true heartfelt desire holds the power to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Sometimes self belief can be the hardest thing in the world, especially when doing something outside of our comfort zone. When we don’t have a solid track record of success to inspire confidence , our strength lies in tapping into our imagination, our passion and our dreams.
These dreams and visions are a core part of who we are. To have imagined them they must be within us, and when you realize that you start to see yourself in a much more expansive way. If we can dream of such beautiful things, we must have this beauty inside of us.
To see an improvement in any area of your life, the image you hold of yourself is often the most important thing you can change. (I talked about this in my earlier posts It’s Not What You Do, It’s How You Do It and The Super Power Of Visualization.)
Any time you doubt your own ability or feel fearful about something, try asking yourself: “What would infinite/magical/superhuman (insert your name) do?” Then do that.
It feels kind of silly at first, but I promise you, once you get into it, you’ll start to notice a real difference in how you feel and the way you approach tasks. It may not always be easy to make the leap from feeling incapable and scared (I’m talking from personal experience here!), to visualizing an unlimited, elevated version of yourself… BUT IT IS POSSIBLE. Just keep practising!

Made me think of this ted talk:
According to this dude, imagination is precisely the thing that makes us human and gives us mastery over the world.
Thanks Kieran, sounds interesting, I will check it out!
