if you can imagine it, you can create it

Daniel Burnham, an accomplished architect and civic planner whose plan for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair had a substantial influence on the contemporary civic design once remarked, “Make no little plans.” 

There’s great wisdom behind these four simple words. Burnham knew that if we want to achieve extraordinary things, we must have extraordinary ideas and a compelling vision around them. 

The size of your imagination determines the size of your life. If you can create in your imagination the life and lifestyle you would like to have, it’s absolutely possible to make them a living and breathing reality in the actual world. 

As Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

WTF! (Wild Thought Friday!)

We are so comfortable as a species that we work at trying to increase the numbers of lions and tigers.
