How"s the video yesterday. Did it blow your mind away?
If you have not watched it, then you MUST click here to watch it now. This is a Must-Watch video.
All right, folks. Let"s get back to our visualization topic. Visualization is the earliest and the most important part of the process of invention and innovation.
You must have the idea or at least you need to have a picture of what you are going to create. Like I said, I can"t imagine how a person is going to invent something without visualize it first.
Please give me some examples of inventions without having to visualize it first (if you have any in your mind now)
I don"t want to be an inventor
All right, perhaps you may say that, â€œWho tells you that I want to be an inventor?â€
That"s not quite right from my perspective.
Being and inventor doesn"t mean that you have to be a scientist. Everybody is an inventor. You can invent your children, health, wealth and happiness.
Invent something is one thing. Invent the right thing is another.
Here"s an example:
A lot of people want their children to be filial, smart, motivated, brilliant, respect the elders, earn a lot of money â€¦ (you name it) but they (the parents) do not visualize the things that they want.
More often than not, their thoughts are contradicting with their desire. As a teacher, I always hear some parents say,
â€œMy son is naughtyâ€
â€œMy daughter is lazyâ€
â€œMy children are stupid and sillyâ€
â€œMy children never treat us like their parents. They never show their respect. I really don"t know what to do with my kids.â€
It is like trying to invent a wheel while you are focusing on a cupboard.
Can Thomas Edison invent a light bulb if he"s visualizing the darkness?
Think about it!
