“You will find that there’s a direct relationship between the imagination of an individual and his ability to produce, to work, to survive, create, destroy. In other words, his activity or value and a lot of other things would depend upon the greatness of his imagination.
“Now, let’s take somebody who would be real bad off. We would say his imagination was zero. Somebody who was real, real, real, real bad off—psychotic—is subject to other-determined imaginings. See, in other words we’ve got a reverse imagination and that is delusion. That’s just other-determinism on imaginings.
“All right. Now let’s get somebody who is not quite so bad off as the person who has zero imagination and we find out he has a little bit of imagination.
“And now, let’s get somebody who is in pretty good shape, well, he’s got a pretty active imagination.
“And when we get somebody who is in excellent condition he can be total imagination at will.”
“Learn to say no. It will be of more use to you than to be able to read Latin.”
19th Century Preacher and Author, C.H.Spurgeon
Your action for today is to see if you’re tempted to say ‘yes’ when maybe saying ‘no’ would serve you better.
Have an extraordinary day!
