Today we're talking about imagination. The book differentiates between "Synthetic Imagination" and "Creative Imagination".
There are some amazing stories in this chapter about the value of ideas.
Keep in mind as you follow these principles, that the entire story of how one may convert DESIRE into money cannot be told in one statement. The story will be complete, only when one has MASTERED, ASSIMILATED, and BEGUN TO MAKE USE of all the principles.
We'll also discuss why desire alone is nebulous and of no value until it is made physical.
Desire is only a thought, an impulse. It is nebulous and ephemeral. It is abstract, and of no value, until it has been transformed into its physical counterpart.
You must have a plan in place to carry out your desire. We'll talk about a story in this chapter that highlights the importance of specifying the amount of TIME in which you will realize a desired result.
Transformation of the intangible impulse, of DESIRE, into the tangible reality, of MONEY, calls for the use of a plan, or plans. These plans must be formed with the aid of the imagination, and mainly, with the synthetic faculty.
