Imagination is one of the most important tools /talents that an entrepreneur can possess. Imagination is the ability to see realities that may not exist (yet). It is said that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. Without imagination, the entrepreneur is blind to opportunities and possibilities. Jesus commended the “faith of a child”. Indeed, as children, most of us spent many hours in private revelry and make believe. We must cultivate the capacity to dream, expand our ability to envision things beyond what presently exists. One method is PLAY.
Your task is to recall one of your favorite childhood games and reenact it. Yes, go ahead and be silly. I give you permission. In fact, it is a requirement. Again, to quote one of my favorite world changers, “unless you have the faith of a child, you will not enter /see the kingdom of heaven”. Without imagination, you may not get very far along your entrepreneur journey.
