It’s Saturday night. 11 PM to be precise and I’m about to go to sleep. Here comes my wife and said “Your son is all the time on the computer. He is not focused on his studies.”
I pretended to sleep. Are you listening? I said I heard you? I decided not to react immediately.
Sunday morning at 11 AM. Called my son. I’m thinking of what to say. Being a coach, I took a different approach. I closed my eyes, and without filtering uttered the most powerful words, I have ever spoken in my life.
Me: Son, do you know the difference between a human being and an animal?
He looked at me and asked what kind of question is this?
He was about to run. Being a father, I used my veto power. I said Wait.
Son. We study. They Don’t.
Me. No, it’s wrong my boy. Okay, imagine we are still living in the jungle. We haven’t invented education. We had something that’s why we are out, and they are still there.
He is thinking.
Me. I will give you a hint. Imagine.
He is again thinking.
Son: Yes, Dad, we can imagine.
Me: You are close. But what we do with our imagination.
Son: Dad, we can imagine the future.
Me: Bang On
Now it was my turn to think and imagine. I realised oh my god. This is it. That’s the only difference. I started thinking. Animals are born. We are born, Animals eat, we eat, Animals die, Yes, we also die one day.
So What makes us humans different than animals?
We havethe power of imagination. We can imagine and create the future we want. That’s why we are on the top.
- Whatever we have created we have created with our imagination? Look at everything closely.
- We created fantastic products on earth because we have the power of imagination.
- We have reached the moon and planning to go to mars because we have the power of imagination.
- We are building electric cars and trying to save the earth because we have the power of imagination.
Everyone has the power of imagination. Unfortunately, most of the people don’t use this power because their focus is somewhere else.
People are struggling because they are not focused on important things.
People are worried because they are not focused on important things.
Someone said” Most goals are not out of reach. They are out of Focus”
Yes, If we use the Power of Imagination and Focus on important things everything is possible.
