- Eye Opening
Do you want to make the world a better place? Start by embracing the power of imagination. In this uplifting 99U talk, writer Ashley C. Ford explains how she came to understand the vital role imagination plays in opening up new possibilities for herself and others. Ford argues that lack of imagination is responsible for many of the world’s ills – including racism. People mistake their limited expectations of what is or is not possible for reality, she says. But by developing the “superpower” to imagine beyond your understanding, you can discover new paths, both for your own life and for the lives of those around you.
