Imagination; The Fifth Step to Riches
The Fifth Step to Riches
“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 aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind.” Page 97, Think and Grow Rich.
“It has been said that man can create anything which he can imagine. Of all the ages of civilization, this is the most favorable for the development of the imagination, because it is an age of rapid change. On every hand one may contact stimuli which develop the imagination.” Page 97, Think and Grow Rich
“Through the aid of his imaginative faculty, man has discovered, and harnessed, more of Nature’s forces during the past fifty years than during the entire history of the human race, previous to that time. He has conquered the air so completely, that the birds are a poor match for him in flying. He has harnessed the ether, and made it serve as a means of instantaneous communication with any part of the world. He has analyzed, and weighed the sun at a distance of millions of miles, and has determined, through the aid of Imagination, the elements of which it consists. He has discovered that his own brain is both a broadcasting, mind a receiving station for the vibration of thought, and he is beginning now to learn how to make practical use of this discovery. He has increased the speed of locomotion, until he may now travel at a speed or more than three hundred miles an hour. The time will soon come when a man may breakfast in New York, and lunch in San Francisco.” Page 97-98, Think and Grow Rich
“MAN’s ONLY LIMITATION, within reason, IS IN HIS DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF HIS IMAGINATION. He has not vet reached the apex of development in the use of his imaginative faculty. He has merely discovered that he has an imagination, and has commenced to use it in a very elementary way.” Page 98, Think and Grow Rich
