Probably the most child-like aspect of Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is his system’s reliance on imagination.
Imagination is really Law of Attraction 101. The three step LOA process: Ask, Believe, and Receive, starts with Ask, and that’s where imagination really becomes paramount.
The Universe can’t deliver something to you that you’ve never had before until you can imagine it.
Hill talks about two kinds of imagination:
- Synthesized imagination
- Creative imagination
Synthesized imagination is what most of use every day of our lives. It’s the kind that inventors, business builders, and all kinds of people use to put new stuff together from pieces of old stuff.
Creative imagination is where completely brand new stuff comes from. The intuitions, hunches, insights, and flashes of brilliance that each of us gets from time to time fall into the category of creative imagination.
Joel and Walt spend a lot of really fun quality time talking about synthesized imagination vs creative imagination and the role that each play in our creative LOA lives.
