HOW TO THINK & DREAM CREATIVELY
Creative thinking is simply finding new, improved ways to do anything. Step one: Believe it can be done. Here is a basic truth: To do anything, we must first believe it can be done. Believing something can be done sets the mind in motion to find a way to do it. Your mind will create a way if you let it.
Eliminate the word “impossible” from your thinking and speaking vocabularies. Impossible is a failure word. The thought “It’s impossible” sets off a chain reaction of other thoughts to prove you’re right. “Average” people have always resented progress.
Traditional thinking is personal enemy number one for the person who is interested in a creative personal success program. Traditional thinking freezes your mind, blocks your progress, and prevents you from developing creative power. Be an experimental person. Break up fixed routines. Expose yourself to new restaurants, new books, new theatres, new friends; take a different route to work someday, take a different vacation this year, do something new and different this weekend.
Be progressive, not regressive – not backward, regressive thinking but forward, progressive thinking. Successful people, like successful businesses, live with these questions: “How can I improve the quality of my performance? How can I do better?” The successful person doesn’t ask, “Can I do better?” He knows the can. So he phrases the question: “ How can I do it better?”
