Dragon Hunting

When was the last time you went out hunting dragons?

Or rode a unicorn through an  enchanted forest? Or flew on the back of a giant swan over the shire and far away? Or kicked up the red sand in your Mars Rover as you dashed across Valles Marineris?

This is stuff of imagination. As children we filled  our heads with  strange vistas, colorful stories and exciting adventures, but it seems we think that imagination isn’t something we should carry through to adulthood. Often we feel that growing up means we  must discard fantasy and live our lives in the ordinary, the everyday. I remember once when I was about fourteen or fifteen crying because soon I would be too old to read science fiction novels. I have no idea where such an idea came from, but it was a traumatic moment for me.

It’s criminal, or rightly should be, to demand that in  transition from childhood to adulthood we are required to abandon one of the most import qualities of our humanity, our ability to imagine, our ability to visualize beyond what is known or understood in sheer scientific teams.

For me it’s why I still embrace Winnie the Pooh, fables and fantasy.

We need our imaginations more in adulthood that we ever needed them in childhood.

From our ability to imagine, comes our ability to visualize how we want to live, how we want our lives to be, how we plan and goal set beyond the limits of day-to-day.

It’s what we use to discover the extraordinary in our daily lives and thus add zest, excitement and adventure that stirs our blood, gives new colors to our world and allows us, each and every one of us, the ability to pass through the barrier of what is into the land of magic and the land where all things are possible.

I will go way out on a limb, and guarantee that your health as an adult depends on it.

And the health of your business too. Imagination is the tool that creates what that business will be, what it will look like, who it will serve and will reflect your personal dreams and goals.

Without imagination you end up repeating what’s all ready been tried, stuck using ready-made splash pages that are one size fits all, stuck without a brand that is unique and personal to you.

Without imagination, you live within the walls of ordinary with no way to pass the barrier into the land of magic where endless possibilities await you. You’ve even been trained to stay within the safe four walls of conformity.

You’ve heard of invisible fences, used to keep dogs, for instance, within a certain area without the need of having to erect a fence. Once the fence is installed the dog gets a special collar the zaps  it when it get to close to the electronic fence. After awhile of doing this once the dog has learned the confines of his world, you can take the collar off and the dog will not venture forth, even though the fence is now gone.

It takes work to break that psychology in the dog, to convince it that it can safely cross the barrier into the wider world.

Imagination is the tool that frees us, lets us stretch and grow.

If you haven’t taken the time to sit down and imagine what your business will look like in a year from now, in five years, or to simply reflect upon all the possibilities that like open to you, to think up instead of down, then you ought to do that as soon as you can. What you are manifesting today, does not have to be what you manifest tomorrow if you dare to imagine, and visualize something grand and huge and awesome.

At the beginning of this post I asked you if you’d been out hunting dragons lately.

In your mind you probably created a picture of a dragon. That’s because most of us have seen at least one, or read a description of one.

If your are a child you know that going out and hunting dragons is a very real possibility.

If you are an adult, you may have seen a dragon but you know they don’t exist and hunting for one would be futile.

Which world would you rather live in….the world where dragons are posible or in a world where you know you  can’t be harmed my dragon fire.

I know which one I choose.

I’m setting up an expeditions, heading out at first light, when the stars still light up the western sky, and fresh breezes blow through my hair and make my eyes water, and that something, excitement, possilibility, stirs in my gut. I’m inviting you along.

All you need to bring is your imagination.

  • Oh Nick. It’s a great post, made me smile the whole way through.

    I was never much of a dragon hunter, but I have buckled plenty of swash in my life. Still do, often in that thin space between sleep and awake. Where I am the hero and all others quake in fear.

    Thanks Nick. Made my day!

  • at first i thought you were talking about Dragon Surf, LOL it kind of a kool TE, yes we all jave
    imaginary friends to keep us company when we’re alone and think no one cares about us.
    It’s alot like the internet we have friends but who are they? we see faces and hear chat from them
    but hardly ever meet them face to face… which reminds me or other organization were we have getogethers to meet the others in thye group like summer picknicks and business meetings.

    One thing i think about alot is how to use the internet to bring people closer to us and learn
    what works and what doesn’t work on here…. especially with all the monsters out there
    collecting big checks fron people for worthless ebooks and stuff that doesn’t really work anymore.
    it frustrating to see people lead in the wrong direction buy gurus and pure bs or a well known
    internet person…. that’s why i8 love CTP they tell the truth and help people to do better on here
    thank you for being my leader here at CTP, you NIck you play the game the right way leading
    in excellence and not just gathering a flock of sheep to stalter as most leaders have done before you….

    thanks again

  • Hi Nick,

    When I saw the title I thought it was going to be about the hype of sales pages and how you have as much chance of catching a dragon as you do making a profit!

    What you wrote is much better and if you can imagine success it means you have more chance of achieving it than those who just plod along hoping something will happen.

  • Great Post! I think we all have to be creative to earn online. The same old will always be that, old. Imagination is the key to create stuff that is worth something online.

    I’m a role player. I started to play those games when I was 20. So I was a little old to start to play them. But I understood really fast how this would change my life. Creating with friends a story sitting around a table and just having fun doing so. What could be better then this for someone like me who love to write stories.

    I’m also a mage. Practicing magic for many years. I respect the powers in this world and never use magic for doing wrong things. I also believe that true magic is the everyday things that we do. Smiling or wishing a good day to stranger. Giving away something without expecting anything back. Listen to someone who need to talk. So many things we can do that brings magic in this world. It doesn’t have to be complicated to be good. 🙂

    Ok, I think I should write a post on my blog. I have too much to say today. :p

    Have a great day all!

    And don’t forget to have fun!
