How to Travel to Different Worlds - The Power of Ideas

You don't have to travel to a different planet to experience what it would be like to live in a different world. You only need to SEE YOUR SELF THROUGH DIFFERENT IDEAS...and act accordingly.

How ? Allow me to share an idea that came to me "out of the blue".

I was thinking about how to change my life and how I live.

I thought about all the books I'd read, all the the self-help programs I'd watched or listened to in various media, all the people whose lives I admired, all the opportunities I passed up, and all the dreams I have had.

In the midst of all that thinking, it occurred to me that there was a common denominator in each and every one of those sources.

And that common denominator is: Each and every one of those sources is an idea or a set of ideas.

I realized that each idea is A WORLD UNTO ITSELF, because each of them, produces world-changing effects in me when I LOOK AT THE WORLD THROUGH THEM.


That is how powerful ideas are !

Don't believe me ? (by the way, disbelief is just another idea...that YOU have total power to change into KNOWING, simply by changing your IDEA)

OK, are you ready? Here goes. What's the most effective way to solve any problem ?



Ready for another? Here goes. What's the real difference between having money and NOT having money ?



See what I mean about having the power to change YOUR world ??

Let's try one more. Ready? Go. What are the most powerful tools you have to change your world?


Are you getting the idea, yet ?

Recently, someone asked me a question, "Are our eyes making us see what we are supposed to be seeing ?"

My answer began with "Depends on what you're looking through...."

It is because we ARE human that though we look at the Universe with our eyes, we actually SEE it, and ourselves, through our "eye"-deas (ideas !)" (See source:

I hope you have seen and felt that the power of ideas to take you to "ENTIRELY NEW WORLDS" is just waiting to be YOU.

Your OWN IDEAS are EVERY BIT AS POWERFUL AS THE ONES YOU JUST take you where you want to go ! Every one of them is free. And every one of them has the power to change everything about you...

May you enjoy ALL the journeys to different worlds that you undertake with your ideas.....WHEREVER YOU WANT TO GO.

How many worlds are there waiting to be discovered ?

How many ideas are there ?

Who knows? Perhaps we will see each other on our respective journeys once or twice.

What a great idea !
