Most people throw out an idea before it is ever give a chance to reach it’s full potential. Ideas, like plants, need time to grow.
They need to be planted and cultivated. They need to be cared for and given a healthy environment in which to thrive. Just as a small tender plant doesn’t grow in the cold, harsh winter, neither will an idea.
Ideas need fertile ground and sunlight. They need vision and hope.
What if the “crazy thought” you just had could be your next great idea which could lead to fulfilling a lifelong dream?
There is an old saying that goes “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.” As obvious as it seems in real life, we can actually apply this concept to our ideas just as readily, but we hardly ever do.
Our ideas are thought of as being a dime a dozen, and they do come and go easily. Did you know, however, each of us has at least 3 one million dollar ideas each year?! Nearly all of them are shoved aside and never pursued and therefore lost, only to be discovered by someone else.
Give your ideas a chance. You never know where your they may lead.
And though ideas are wonderful things, they need action to give them wings. They cannot become anything without action. Therefore let your ideas form and grow. Then take action to let them fly.
Don’t toss them out just because your mind tells you they won’t work.
Sometimes you have to tell your mind what to think rather than the other way around.
Question: Have you tossed any of your ideas aside?
