What is Imagination?
Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, wrote, “Imagination is the most marvellous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.”
Imagination is the ability to form mental images of things, ideas or stimulation with no input from the five senses. It is the ability to build mental pictures of something that does not exist or has not happened yet.
It’s your imagination that allows you to fantasize or dream of something you want that is not in your reality yet.
Your imagination is not limited to mental pictures only. It can also include other senses. You can imagine tastes, sounds, physical sensations, smells and feelings.
When used correctly, your imagination will improve your ability to form original ideas and come up with creative solutions.
Common Uses of Imagination
Most people use their imagination to:
- Build pictures of a better lifestyle or what they want to have in life.
- Predict something positive or negative that may happen.
- Escape their reality, even for a short period.
As you practice deliberately using your imagination, you will enhance your creative abilities, which means you will have better thoughts about your life.

It’s about allowing yourself to reconnect to your child-like state. The key is to give yourself permission to use it.
Steps you can take to use your imagination include:
- Schedule time to daydream. Allow yourself to fantasize about anything important to you.
- Do things differently. Instead of doing things the way you have always done them, change how you do them.
- Practice being creative. This can include painting, drawing, writing or other activities that will require you to focus well.
- Engage in problem-solving. If there is a problem you want to solve, which does not have to be yours, imagine how you would solve it.
