As you know by know, one of the most inspirational books for success (that I highly recommend) is think and grow rich. And one of the most important takeaways that I got from reading the book Think and Grow Rich is that you shouldn’t be afraid to develop your ideas. No matter how simple, weird, unbelievable and unrealistic your ideas are, there is always a niche for that idea – and that niche can make you successful and rich.
Ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes. Ideas are products of the imagination – and it is one of the key principles of success. Man’s only limitation, within reason, lies in his development and use of his imagination. If you have an open mind and a creative side, you shouldn’t be afraid to think of ideas that might seem incredulous to some people.
Why You Need To Trust And Develop your Ideas
Some of the biggest businesses – and I am talking about billion dollar empires – came from simple ideas, And you won’t believe how many people found these ideas so useful, fun and amazing – enough to catapult these ideas into multi-billion dollar businesses.
Twitter, for example, came from an idea that a message should only contain 140 or less characters.
Instagram, one of the worlds most popular app, is actually just an image-sharing software.
Consider Sara Blakely too, whose small, disruptive idea — making an incision in a pair of pantyhose — amounted to her booming, billion-dollar business, Spanx. This simple and weird idea was so useful to women and it skyrocketed her into becoming a billionaire. Now this might be a weird idea, right? But it worked because she wasn’t afraid to develop it.
Which gets me back to the core of my message – DON’T BE AFRAID TO CREATE, IMAGINE AND DEVELOP IDEAS. No matter how absurd they seem to you, some people will find it useful! You just have to find your niche and work from there.
“Whoever you are, wherever you may live, whatever occupation you may be engaged in, just remember that most vast empire of wealth and influence grew out of a single idea,”
These famous words were spoken by Napoleon Hill, author of the book Think and Grow Rich. If he thinks that any idea can grow into a vast empire of wealth and influence, then that means your idea can grow into one too!
If you have an idea in mind that you want to develop, don’t be afraid to pursue it! With the right mindset and action, you can develop this idea into something that can be bigger than even yourself.
