If you want to be super-successful in today’s world, you need to be creative and imaginative. Imagination is the biggest source of asset creation in today’s world. Below are three examples illustrating this lesson:

David Baldacci writes mystery novels every night between 22.00 and 2 am Using his imagination, he has published 40 books and he is one of the best-selling authors in the world in the area of ​​mystery novels and thrillers.

Nas Daily produces 1-minute videos every day – he has done it for 1000 consecutive days without skipping any day. He has given himself 24-hour deadlines and he used his imagination every day to create short videos. This practice has made him rich and famous.

In each success story above, imagination was a key ingredient. These individuals created their own games where they were the hero.

You can use your imagination to tap into rich worlds of possibility, dream about your future, invent new things, and share your stories with the world.

Below are three micro-lessons further describing how imagination is crucial and how you can foster it.

  • Imagination is a tool for survival: Your quality of life depends on it. Imagination is one of the most critical factors for success, wellbeing, and happiness today. Your imagination allows you to tap into rich worlds of possibility, dream about your future, invent new things, and share your stories with the world.
  • Imagination is built on child-like curiosity: Reclaim your childhood. Imagination allows you to act like children, be foolish and curious, have fun, mess things up, get out of the rut, and invent new ways of thinking. You were extremely creative and imaginative when you were a child. You just forgot it. Schools, grades, university, jobs, work… You forgot how to play. You need to reclaim your creativity.
  • Imagination is a muscle: You need to use it frequently. Imagination is like a muscle and it can be strengthened through practical exercises and experiments you can easily apply on a daily basis. Creating great ideas is a function of creating lots of ideas and connecting them together. It’s not magic – it’s just a lot of hard work. To improve your imagination, give your brain exercises and challenges every day. My goal is to provide you with these exercises.

There are 99 creative adventures below. You will be able to finish each creativity adventure in about 20 minutes. Imagine spending just 20 minutes every day exercising your creative muscles. After 99 days, you will have a much more creative and playful attitude in your life. More importantly, you will develop your creative muscles and imaginative powers. You need just 20 minutes, a pencil, and a notebook to capture your ideas. These exercises will help you to kickstart your own journeys of the imagination.

These exercises will allow you to act like children, be foolish and curious, let it go, have fun, mess things up, get out of the rut, and invent new ways of thinking. These exercises will also increase your neuroplasticity, and enable you to come up with a constant stream of fresh ideas.

These 99 exercises will allow you to communicate with your subconscious mind and create positive mental imagery. The fascinating thing about your imagination is that it is unlimited. The more you use it, the more you will have it.

Creativity is a mindset: It involves a playful attitude to problem-solving and a willingness to explore multiple solutions. You do not need to be an artist to be creative. You can be more creative in your work as a professional. These exercises will help you develop this playful attitude. You will discover your own talents and crayons as you play along.

Everyone can be creative with a little bit of determination and work. To avoid mediocrity, you need to go beyond obvious and conventional answers. You need to practice generative thinking and open up the solution space as far as you can. To do this, approach a problem from different angles and perspectives.

Originality emerges from the sheer quantity of ideas. Thomas Edison was immensely productive and he held more than a thousand patents. He tried to come up with a minor invention every week. Mozart composed more than 600 pieces of music. If you want to be innovative, you should make it a habit of creating at least 50 ideas every day. Most of your ideas can be crap – it’s totally fine. In order to create a diamond idea, you need to deal with hundreds, thousands of charcoal ideas. Massive quantity means more chances for cross-fertilizations and novel combinations. You just randomly combine lots of ideas with other ideas. It is pure probability theory, and you are increasing your chances.
