3 Lessons from a fictional story
On the “Let’s Do Life podcast” this week,I tell a light-hearted fun story about a French Baker who used the power of strong intent and words to create an alternate reality. Below are three lessons I learned while researching and writing this fictional tale
The power of imagination
“Your imaginative power is your creative ability and the extent of your vision is the boundary of your blessing” -Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. How often do we live our lives based on cultural myths and social norms? As I grow and learn more about the greats who’ve walked the earth, it appears that imagination fuels their passion. The ability to see something that no one else can, to see a vision, a dream, and an idea. Little wonder Oscar Wilde was led to say “Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination”.
Thinking outside the box
We’ve all got something to share but how we deliver our message is just as important as the message itself. My heart’s desire is to add value to my community but the challenge is how to carry on this task without sounding like a broken record or motivational speaker (I’ve got nothing against any motivational speaker). I think most of us know what needs to be done and how, but ever so often, taking action is where the problem lies. So with the podcast and quirky stories I tell, my intent is to bring core principles to mind & make them memorable enough to be acted upon.
Words have power
In this week’s podcast, I share a little about Masaru Emoto’s water crystal experiment. Though his work has been challenged by contemporary and mainstream scientist, I think there is some truth to it. Words control our thoughts and the predominating thought in your mind tends to be what controls your life. So if we become more intentional about the words that come to us (in movies, music, media) then maybe we can proactively start creating our own world.
