For the past three weeks, I wrote about the three characteristics you’ll need to develop to accomplish your dreams. The first is desire, the second is faith, and the third is specialized knowledge. I say you will need to develop these qualities because you can cultivate and grow them.

Initially, you may only have a little desire, a small faith, and only an ounce of specialized knowledge. You can; if you choose, become a person of great desire and faith and eventually become a well-versed expert in the specialized knowledge you’ll need to know to accomplish your objective.

Your imagination will be the fourth quality you’ll need to nourish. It’s a common belief that you either have a mind for imagination or you don’t. Undoubtedly, some are born with more imagination than others, but that is true with anything.
