Pay It Forward


I just finished reading, “Looptail How One Company Changed the World” by Bruce Poon Tip.  I picked it up because it was on one of those best business books of 2013 lists and more specifically because it was a travel company.  I’ve been wanting to travel more and trying to find creative ways to do so.

The book is a great read for those interested in leadership and testing out different business models especially for company’s going through growth looking for new strategies.

I found the book inspiring because it’s an example of a company who has incredible growth and did so without comprising on their ideals.  If you think success means you’ll have to sell out one day here’s a real example of that not being true.  This company was able to thrive while paying it forward and helping local communities to grow and prosper.  Because of the prejudice he encountered as a child he celebrated the uniqueness of people who collectively could achieve the extraordinary.

Some of my favorite quotes from the book:

“It’s about paying it forward, finding purpose and infusing your work and life with it, you create the conditions for your own success.”

“How you view the world is linked to your influences and the world is a reflection of your consciousness.”

How to Use the Power of Imagination to Create Your Ideal Life

Today I want to remind you that you have one of the most powerful tools at your disposal and it’s absolutely free.  It is your imagination, the action of producing ideas.  Imagination can also be referred to as inner vision because it’s the ability to form new images which are not perceived through our senses such as sight and hearing.  It is an awareness not confined to our senses or the rules and laws of our reality.  This is precisely what makes it such an effective and powerful tool.


Without the boundaries of the real world we are free to create and reinvent the world.  From these creations we may not only inspire ourselves but others as well.


By using our imagination we can see beyond our current condition and find new insight into how the present changes our future.  Viewing things from new perspectives can allow us to tap unrealized potential.  We may imagine ways to make our dreams come true.

Solve Problems

By comparing our imaginations to reality we may prevent bad outcomes.  Seeing things from different perspectives allows us to generate alternatives.  It allows us to tap into the knowledge of possibility.  By enabling you to imagine all sorts of scenarios, it alerts you to dangers as well as opportunities.

Deal with Emotions

We can deal with emotions by generating alternate scenarios with different outcomes.  For example, if you fear something you can imagine a way that you are able to conquer that fear.


Imagination allows us to remove any earthly boundaries granting us the ability to take fresh new perspectives.  This helps us uncover things we might not have been able to see before or discover things we never knew of.  One way is by empathizing with others and seeing the future through their eyes.

Feeling Free

In your imagination, you can travel anywhere in the speed of light, without any obstacles.  There are no limits or boundaries.  In addition you are absolute free to express yourself.

You are already imagining scenarios when you worry, feel anxious or stressed.  By using your imagination you can access your potential and begin creating the life of your dreams. There are no limits to positive energy.  Here is exactly how to use your imagination to zone in and focus on making your dreams come true in ten easy steps.
