Quote Of The Week: Imagination

I recalled one of the anecdotes of Steven Covey in his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. He mentioned that there was a man who was imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp during World War Two. By using his imagination, he was able to project himself into a much more happier and pleasant scenario for himself. The Nazis might have controlled his physical body and removed his freedom, but they could not take away his imagination. This was how he chose to react to all this inhuman treatment.

In real life, how many times have we been wrongly accused, insulted and belittled? Too many times for sure. It is very tempting and easy to just sit there and sulk. I am often guilty of this myself. After sulking, I also become furious and filled with anger.

Funny thing is that other person never knew how upset I am at them. Usually, in their opinion, I am over reacting.

Therefore, I am working to change history. In my imagination, I imagine myself to be able to diffuse this internal time bomb. I imagine that I am able to handle and stand up to these “cruel” behaviours.
