Can you imagine being able to travel back in time, and take a video of all of your favourite events, so you can see them exactly as they happened all of those years ago? What events would you go back to see? Would it be someone’s wedding that you enjoyed? Would it be a favourite holiday? Or would it be a particularly normal Wednesday afternoon back in 1973 when you really didn’t do anything, but had a fantastic time just being you? The chances are you may already have a video or at least a photograph of the wedding – or the holiday – but probably wouldn’t have anything of significance to help you to really remember that fantastic Wednesday afternoon.
It’s the normal days, the ordinary days, that can really turn into something extraordinary. You may just be sitting quietly, just staring into space, when Wham! a fantastic idea hits you. You follow the idea through, and bring it into reality. The idea becomes really successful, helping you to achieve all of your dreams, and other people look on in wonder as to how you could have come up with an idea such as that… think it sounds far-fetched?
Think about how many ideas pop into your head as you are out shopping, or driving (or waiting at traffic lights!), or playing sport, or waiting for something, or watching Smallville on the TV, or reading a book, or typing a blog, or gossiping, or swimming, or trying on an old shirt, or moaning, or cooking or doing whatever every day things are being done. Some of the ideas can be discounted, obviously, but some of them could really be the road to success for you.
It’s really worth a thought. Just because nothing is happening in the physical world, it does not man that nothing is happening in the realm of your thoughts. Any idea that you think is good, write it down… try to see how it would work in the real world… see how it would really help people… see it being successful. Set the wheels in motion for your idea to become real.
It may be that your final product may not resemble your original idea at all. It may be that you decide to scrap your plan for this idea as an even better one occurred to you one Sunday afternoon. It may be that your idea is such an overnight success you are taken aback by just how successful it is.
The point is the original idea is what sparked this all off. And the action you took after the idea, obviously – unless you dismissed the idea then you wouldn’t feel the success at all.
So, the next time you find yourself with nothing to do, just sit back and think that at any moment now you will have such a great idea that you will take some time to look into further.
Oh, and if you have a camera handy, just take a photo of that day. Anything at all can be the subject, but if you get something with the date in it, it will help you in the future when you are looking back over the special days that you would like to visit, if you could travel back in time.
Why not make everyday special? Then you wouldn’t even need to travel back in time to visit, as you are actually living it anyway… just a thought.
