The Life Changing Growth Of An Idea (Part 1)

Published

‘The wise only possess ideas…the greater part of mankind are possessed by them.’ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Throughout the history of mankind, ideas and the ready application of those ideas have always separated those who ‘were’ from those who ‘will be’. Only those who have embraced fresh ideas have soared on to greatness. Only those who have had faith and have seen the obstacles as opportunities have become the heroes of the generations.

It is the dreamers, the risk-takers, the men and women of action who have paved the path to a better life for all mankind. It is the believers and the conceivers who have married the past with the present and produced its offspring: the future.

Desire gives the individual extraordinary power to overcome any obstacle and to climb any mountain. It empowers them with the ability and the means to pursue a goal and to fulfill it.

It draws within its reach all the ingredients that are required for success.

Like a magnet, the desire attracts those elements required for forwarding, positive movement. It has the power to bring the right people across one’s path, the right reading material, the right tools, and the right setting for the performance of the desire’s fulfillment.

Once desire has been birthed, then embracement can begin. However, to successfully arrive at the moment of fulfillment, one needs to undergo change.

There are five phases that ideas pass through. By gaining an understanding of these five phases, you will far better embrace change and discover how to turn it to your utmost advantage.

The five stages are:

1. CONCEPTION

2. BIRTH

3. CHILDHOOD

4. ADOLESCENCE

5. ADULTHOOD

Each of the five phases has everything to do with the life-changing growth of an idea. So here are the first two phases: conception and birth.

1. CONCEPTION

An idea is conceived. What or who inspires it? Where does it come from? Anywhere.

I have found that by surrounding myself with a balance of outside influences, either through reading, listening, or associating with winners, the seed of an idea has been planted in the course of my study and conversation.

Developing the habit of writing down my thoughts in a journal has also developed a greater regularity in the discovery of a new idea.

The air is full of ideas. It is our role to stay alert and ready to catch them as they pass by.

It can arise out of our need or a problem that must be solved. Some of the greatest ideas I have ever received had come when ‘my back was up against a wall’. When I needed a miracle, the idea came.

I pray for ideas. I increase my reading. I place myself in seminars. I surround myself with bigger thinkers.

BY MARRYING THE PAST WITH THE PRESENT, ITS OFFSPRING, THE FUTURE, IS CREATED

Through the power of association, I always put myself in a position whereby I can become ‘pregnant’ with an idea. Hoping for it never achieves anything. I have to prepare myself for the event by remaining in a positive state of mind as I declare, ‘There is an original idea out there, and I’m going to find it, no matter what!’

A fertile mind is always prepared to receive the seed of an idea. As soon as those ideas come, write them down. If it happens in the middle of the night, jump out of bed and write them down. If the idea comes as you drive your car, pull over to the side of the road and write it down, or keep a recording device handy. Conception can occur at any time and in any place.

2. BIRTH

Once conceived and then nurtured throughout pregnancy, there comes a time for the birth.

During pregnancy, come back regularly to meditate on the idea. As the birth becomes more imminent, you will find that it will kick you from time to time to remind you that it is growing and maturing in your mind every day of its life.

THOUGHTS ARE THE MATERNITY WARD WHERE BIRTH IS GIVEN TO FRESH AND NEW IDEAS

Unfortunately, unlike most human pregnancies, I cannot tell you how long the gestation time frame is for each idea. Sometimes it is hours. Other times it is days. Many of my own ideas have taken years to be birthed.

But the good news is this. You can be simultaneously pregnant with as many baby ideas as you wish to have.

Depending on how successful you wish to be will determine how many ideas are ‘cooking’ all at once.

It doesn’t even have to be a totally original idea. It can be a slight adjustment to another one that is already in use. Some of the greatest successes have come from the clever adaptation and fine-tuning of an already existing idea. Look for ways to improve an already existing service or product. You’ll be amazed at what you discover.

Motivational Memo: To have an idea, and to apply action to that idea, is a brilliant idea.
