BERLIN, GERMANY (03 Mar. 2021)— Imagination: The Secret Nobody Talks About
by Christoph Weigert, a just-published book that pulls back the
curtain on the mysteries of powerful, imaginative thinking as a path
to genuine success in life, will be available as a free download from
Amazon.com beginning 03 Mar.
through 05 Mar.
Weigert is a Berlin-based motivational
researcher and coach whose book makes a compelling case that
imaginative thinking has been the Number One driving force throughout
history, impacting every aspect of life, and benefiting not just the
creative-minded individual but entire societies.
According to the author, imaginative
thinking is not the same as imagination, although they are intimately
“Imagination is the automatic ability to
conjure images in the mind; imaginative thinking is a skill set
that can be learned by anyone and developed, the same as a bodily
muscle,” Weigert said.
Imaginative thinking is the application of the imagination to the real world, as opposed to mere daydreaming.
For that reason, Weigert said the book
brims with easy, fun—and little-known—exercises to develop
“The exercises are designed to
strengthen one’s imaginative thinking powers and take them to the
next level,” he said. “People can benefit from these exercises
even if they’ve convinced themselves that they have no imagination
to begin with,” he said.
Weigert uses the pages of his book to
catalog—and debunk—the myths surrounding the ways in which
imaginative thinking is cultivated and utilized. He also exposes the
mistakes people commonly make when attempting to discover their
purpose in life, pursue their passions and fulfill their dreams.
Said Weigert: “I talk about a truly
liberating way to help you to stop caring in the least what other
people think of you and your ideas. When you learn to not care about
the criticisms, you become empowered to express yourself more freely
and—most importantly—to fully follow your dreams and attain
Weigert said he devoted five years of
his life to understanding and mastering imaginative thinking. In the
book, he describes how his journey ultimately enabled him to create
and sell for an unexpected sum two acrylic paintings—despite a lack
of formal training in art and a damaging belief that he had no
“Talent is not in the genes but can
be acquired through repetition with precision and ‘knowing what you
don´t know,’” he asserted.
The book represents Weigert’s efforts
to expand upon the foundational works of Jon Rappoport, who
championed the “philosophy of imagination” over a 40-year
personal quest for answers.
“The concept underlying my book is
that we are not married to our past nor to the painting we have
created up to this point,” Weigert explained. “I hold the view
that we are free to reinvent ourselves from the ground up. You, all
your life, might have been focused in one direction, expressed in one
style of art and being. My contention is that, today, you´re free to
drop all that and start something completely different.
“My purpose is to teach you how to
ignore it when people tell you to focus on your strengths and tell
you all the ‘sensible things to do.’ I show you how to develop
new strengths to resist that kind of discouragement.
“A study by software-maker Adobe
found that 75 percent of people do not feel they are fulfilling their
creative potential—and my book is written expressly for them.”
In one of the most pulse-quickening
chapters of the book, Weigert discusses human sexuality and the
energy that it generates.
“I present ideas that explain why sex
is a vital element of the imaginative thinking process,” he said.
Weigert—who notes that the philosophy
of imagination was embraced by Steve Jobs and was highly influential
in convincing the computing-industry pioneer to introduce art to that
field—even delves into the question of how Harry Potter would use
the power of his mind to come out on top at the end of a COVID
