Ask Einstein For Advice

By Steve Gillman

What If You Could Ask Anyone For Help?

Have you ever noticed how sometimes you are at your most creative when you are interacting with another person? You and your friend or acquaintance feed off of each other's ideas and help each other clarify things. Well what about those times when you are alone, or you have no one you wish to share your ideas with? What can you do then to stimulate creative thought and to find elegant solutions to your problems? You could try talking to Albert Einstein.

Okay, you might want to talk to Andrew Carnegie or Lee Iacocca if your problem has to do with making a factory more productive. A question about love might be better addressed to the Dalai Lama. The point is to have a conversation in your head with a historical person or expert who can help with your particular problem. Why would you want to do this?

Your Imagination Needs Form To Function

Whether you realize it or not, you have a powerful imagination. What you may not have, however, is a powerful way to use it. That is what you get with a conversation in your head; a way to access the creative power of your mind. You will be surprized how often your imaginary Einstein comes up with an interesting idea, or asks you a question that produces something useful.

Try it in this way: Use the image of someone who you respect and know something about. This is so you can easily imagine what they might say. It can be a fictional character - in fact, this may be even better. Explain the situation to this person, and listen to what they have to say.

Remember those WWJD pins and stickers? WWJD stands for "What Would Jesus Do?" Young christians wore these pins (still do, I believe) as a source of guidance. Whether you are a christian or not, you can understand how in a time of confusion, this simple question can immediately clarify the situation and allow a right decision.

Think about this for a moment. All the information necessary to make a right decision might be there in a young man's head already, and yet there is confusion. Imagining what Jesus would do or say is all it takes to "see" the answer.

So start talking with your imaginary friends (in your head please). Ask for help with personal, business, moral and any other problems. This is a powerful way of drawing on the power of your unconscious mind, and it will work for you if you give it a chance.
