“What if you were wrong? What if everything you ever believed was a lie? What if you missed your opportunity because you didn’t know your worth? What if you settled on familiar, but God was trying to give you something better? What if you decided not to go backwards, but forward? What if doing what you have never done before was the answer to everything that didn’t make sense? What if the answer wasn’t to be found in words, but in action? What if you found the courage to do what you really wanted to do and doing it changed your whole life?”

Premeditation has done wonders for me, but it also has done some serious damage to me. I used to be a rugby player and before a match I would instill some form of premeditation where I would envision myself during the match… going through every phase of the game with my mind, reminding myself of what I have to do and when. This was my routine before I went onto the field. There have been times where I’ve had some serious bad premeditation attempts, where I envisioned myself not being on my game or getting hurt on the field. One time, it was so bad that I thought I was going to die on the field – yeah totally bizarre right?! That was a bad day for me on the field.

This showed me the power of the human mind and how wonderfully toxic things can get for us in our minds and eventually how toxic we could become to those closest to us, just because we have the wrong perception of something.

As bad as things can get, premeditation also can level us up and inspire others.

“Level, is spelled the same forward and backwards. Those on the upper level can always hit the bottom, and those on the bottom can always rank to the top. Envision your footprints up there already trailing, and your feet will soon follow suit.”
― Anthony Liccione

“Our imagination is God’s ingenious gift that hands us the privilege of romping and playing in realities that we can’t see only because we’ve yet to create them.”
― Craig D. Lounsbrough

By envisioning yourself doing something great or seeing yourself achieving your goals will set fire to inspire so many others around you, simply because you have a positive mind set and attitude – you could be an individual who is driven to accomplish so much more in life. Having a real drive to conquer each day as it comes.

“Recognize the remarkable individuals in your life who help you envision a world far beyond yourself.”
― Bill Courtney, Against the Grain: A Coach’s Wisdom on Character, Faith, Family, and Love

“The beginning is found in holding hope. Envision it. Envision your desires. Could it be? Could this be your future? Indeed, it can be if only you have the hope. See the truth of your dreams. The only way to begin is with a heart filled with hope for the future.”
― Avina Celeste

You can bring hope and inspiration to so many people by simply envisioning a better world. You can better yourself personally and stay motivated to learn more skills, gaining more knowledge and creating moments to encourage others to do the same.

Can you imagine a world filled with people who inspire each other and encourage each other to grow and develop themselves to the next level and the next one and the next one?! Imagine the level of creativity that could be conceived!

“What is an obstacle to a man who constantly envisions himself standing at the victory line of his dream?”
― Edmond Mbiaka

I dream of a perfect world…
How about you?

  1. I love the “level” quote
    I was also intrigued by the two words together: wonderfully toxic ?

    I agree… a lot of life starts with our minds. Our thoughts.
    People often envision the worst before anything has actually happened…

    1. Yes overthinking, in many cases, kills creativity and growth – also new opportunities.
      I thought I’d use those two words to give the readers a sense of how premeditation can be wonderful but also toxic to the mindset of someone.
      Loved that level quote too, had me thinking a lot when I first came across it!
