IMAGINATION | Best Motivational Speech
Einstein said imagination is more important than knowledge For knowledge is limited whereas imagination embraces the entire world Stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution Theres distinct difference between today and tomorrow, the real and the so called imagined One has already been created and the other is in desperate need of a creator And see, until we learn that we can be proactive in this regard imagination doesn’t mean much it’s just a car without wheels, plane without wings, its more of an escape than a bridge to something better, but once we realize how much control we have over tomorrow, we become in our own right, creators, not just waiting to read and react to stories already written and handed to us, but possessing this incredible ability to pick up a pen and craft something new, become agents of change I recently came across an interesting article, had some info that made me think…basically it said if you take some domesticated animals like pigs or chickens, and you place them back in the wild some of their previously repressed biological tendencies come right back into play, so for example chickens change their breeding habits, how they take care of their eggs, pigs re-grow their hair and that mane going down their back, these old repressed, kind of hidden away genes are re-selected for again over time, and the animals begin to re-acclimate as though that potential was never lost, it just needed to immerse itself in the right environment And its like well if we view ourselves in that same light we might ask, what if we positioned ourselves to gravitate towards an environment that was best for us, what if i imagined a world, not exactly like today, but one better conducive to me being me… a world where I am set up to thrive, where sure there will be bumps and bruises and losses and lessons along the way, but where I’m immersed in a journey towards a destination that excites me, that lights me up can i find the courage to not only imagine that finish line but also act accordingly move towards it… You know I always say the hardest thing to do is to recreate outcomes that look different from the current moment because well the current moment is all we know its all anybody knows and by the way.
.its all anybody wants to know until something new is placed right in front of them at their feet until proof exists changing your life or the lives of those around you means you have to literally look at the road before you and see outcomes that are not there then you have to believe in those outcomes, you have to drive towards those outcomes, have conviction in your ability to overcome obstacles on your way to those outcomes Truth be told, chasing your Imagination is simultaneously one of the greatest burdens one can endure, as well as a key to that which makes life worth living Theres something about being human that pushes us towards hope, towards the possibility of a tomorrow better than today and that’s not to say don’t be grateful it’s not saying don’t see the beauty around you or appreciate the world you live in, but I believe we’re here to take that torch from yesterday and move it one step forward, maybe its in our own lives a small step forward in our careers, a relationship, or our health, maybe its improving the lives of those around us, family, friends maybe its something larger, societal whatever it is I’m convinced that true meaning in life is finding the courage to push one foot further down the path of possibility to add one step to that ascending staircase knowing that it will allow us to someday look back on today and be proud of what we faced and overcame and as I wake up and I look around I think to myself that has to mean cherishing the ideas in our heads it has to mean we understand the power of our instincts, of our beliefs, of hope it means understanding that it justifies all the hardship that comes with taking those ideas and giving them life.
Because everything around us was built with the courage to take little nothings and make them something And when we’re lost or feel alone or for one reason or another forget that we need to remember that right now is not forever.
it cant be. it’s a stepping stone to whatever you decide tomorrow is. And that goal isn’t perfection.You don’t need all the answers. You need the courage to take one little step in a new direction, to write just one sentence on a brand new page because that imagination is not fiction it’s not the delta between the possible and impossible It’s not there to entertain.
It’s there because its your map, and you may look at that map and think to yourself you’re lost that it’s unclear, that the directions, well they are incomplete at best, but what I can promise you is that the pursuit of this world you’ve imagined, it will bring you greater satisfaction than anything else could.
It will remind you why you’re here and show you that life isn’t supposed to be easy while helping you appreciate it for being that way. See your imagination is your path to that ideal state where you can thrive, be you, push your boundaries and spread your wings.
Don’t ever let the current state of today convince you that your hopes and your dreams for tomorrow are too big that you’ve missed the mark or stepped out of line. In a world of reaction be one of the few who looks mirror and decides to live life proactively, take initiative, be one of the few who stands whole heartedly behind that world they’ve imagined
