PRATICAL WAYS TO CREATE AND TURN AN IDEA INTO REALITY—RANDOLPH FINECOUNTRY
IDEAS die in you when you are not daring!!!
“If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is hope for it.”- Albert Einstein
Ideas change the world. The power of a new idea is the engine that transforms the way we live and think, if you do not express your own original ideas, if you do not listen to your own being. You will have betrayed yourself.
However, when creating ideas. There are so many ways to get distracted, whether you have ADD, ADHD, or just regular brain in the 21st century, we are easily distracted by so many things on a daily basis, especially people that are creative or in the entrepreneurial sector, these types tend to become very overwhelmed by the many ideas they have inside of them, and it becomes hard to focus on one thing-which seems to be the of success.
You are an agent of original genius coaxing atoms into form, following and intelligence that exceeds the limits of your mind, training, and evolutionary perspective. Yet wild success is about discovering your own footprints in an emerging world. It’s about writing your ticket. The answer you may be seeking to the questions which have caused you to ponder over the strangeness of life may be found in your mind, through some idea which may spring into your mind.
HOW TO CREATE AND TURN AN IDEA INTO REALITY
1. Create a burning desire : Ideas come from within, call it a hunch, inspiration, prayer, or intuition. The driving force is desire. Knowing what one wants. Start by following your guts passion.
Our brain becomes magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds, and, by means with which no man is familiar, these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, and the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of dominating thoughts.
2. Write It down : learn to commit all your ideas to paper as soon as possible. No matter how insane or weird the idea sounds, it is very important that you write it down. Most great ideas are short spanned. Meaning they flash through your mind like a speed of light. Trust me; you don’t want to forget the idea that just flashed your mind. It might just be the jackpot you’ve been waiting for.
3. Focus on just one : if faced with multiple ideas, there is the temptation of wanting to execute all at one time. Wrong move! Since you will be working on the project for long haul, the natural thing to do through process of elimination is to choose the one you are most passionate about. Stick to only one idea at a time. That way you can focus all your energy in transforming it into reality.
4. Refine your idea : it is often said that there is nothing new under the sun. But creativity is what makes every idea different and unique. Spend time to tweak, twist, and redefine your idea as much as possible. Like an artiste would work on a sculptor, take time to identify the objective, your target audience and most importantly how to brand you. That way, you stand out from the crowd.
5. Test your madness: I call it “Anderson Cooper’s keeping them honest.” Present your idea to your mentor or close acquaintance. One that is well schooled in your field of choice. Brace yourself mentally to answer tough questions geared towards turning your idea into reality. This is quite a crucial stage that will help to identify loop holes which you may have omitted during conception.
6. Draw a business plan: Creating a business plan allows you to identify potential problems and opportunities your business might face, avoid penalties, fines or other legal problems, adapt to changes in the marketplace and yet you expand or contract from a position of objectivity. You can share a business plan with potential partners, advisers and sources of funding. I strongly suggest that a business plan be a work in progress you should keep current.
When success comes they come so quickly, in such great abundance, that one wonders where they have been hiding during all those lean years. Success begins with a state of mind (desire), with definite purpose, backed by an amazing idea. Knowing that my state of mind is ready for success and welcomes all forms of obstacles including self-doubt; I can boldly gaze back at my friend and say, “Yes, it is possible.”
