Imagination is the fruit that a soul cannot live without and can find itself lost without. Reality is what human’s basic instinct came with to prevent despair and facing possible temporary failures that one would face while trying to achieve something. Imagine that with time you can reach a level where you can think that everything is possible and there are no limits to what you can do in life.
Imagine a life filled with a rich imagination born from your learnings about what others achieved before and all the thoughts that you can find through every book you read or a dream that you lived for a while then escaped from convincing yourself that reality would prevent you from making it for real.
A speech that started with the words “I have a Dream” changed the destiny of a whole nation when people were asking for equality and rights while slavery and injustice seemed to be the only reality they can live in. The Enlightenment movement or every Post Modernist movement whether in literature or science changed the basics of what was known at their time a certain reality. Reformation in all its kinds happened only because a few dared to challenge reality and think of changing things.
Reality is built on what one can be sure of; something that we can see with our eyes, something that others tell us it is the right thing to believe in, something that we are sure it exists out there and someone already discovered it. We love certainty to the level where we are ready to surrender for a harming reality while we fear challenging who we are and what we believe in to discover new things or develop what we already know about life.
Imagination or Reality, Right and Wrong, Good and Bad, Beliefs and Doubts, Certainty and Risks…they are all words describing our feelings when we face what we face in life. There is nothing real or fake since it is all in our minds and how we see things. Life is too short and we spend it trying to apply rules that we set for ourselves thinking that going through this path we will get the Right and Good things we want.
Dare to live in an Imagination of your own and stop living the imagination that others before you set for you. Leading is all about living a life filled with challenges, ups and downs, risks and a desire to learn knew things. Write your own dictionary with new meanings for everything you learn since only in such a way you can leave your finger print somewhere in this Imaginary world.
