Eugene F. Ware rightly said, “All glory comes from daring to begin.”
There are millions of ideas running in our minds every day. Amongst them, there is this one particular idea that we just can’t let go of easily. It is always in the back of our mind but either we are too afraid to acknowledge it or we have absolutely no clue what the next step should be. Well, if you’re stuck in the same dilemma then you have come to the right place, my friend.
Now I can’t provide you with a guaranteed potion of success, really no one can, but I'll share some things that the majority of successful people have followed in their journey of acknowledging ideas. Before starting anything, you need to have ‘the idea’. And the human mind, my dear, is a machine generating thousands of ideas. Thus the first step towards anything is to identify all your thoughts and ideas clearly and then picking up the most creative and potential one. After acknowledging the potential idea, there are a few things you can do to keep up your self-esteem;
• Search for inspiration.
There are thousands of people who started their careers from absolute scratch and are making millions now. Do you know, Some of the world’s biggest companies, like Apple, Amazon, Google, etc. started in a mere garage.
• There are people out there just like YOU.
"Why would anyone buy my product (service)?" some of the best ideas do not come out to existence in real world, due to this question, but let me tell you something – there are millions of people like you, who want to see someone like them; They want inspiration from someone they relate to. So you just need to put a bit more effort, and you'll know why and who will buy your product (service). There are thousands of problems in the world, you just need to be able to solve one. You can be the world's inspiration just by starting and giving wings to your idea. So just start your journey and you'll find your tribe.
• Research / Educate yourself.
Alexander Pope stated, "A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: their shallow draughts intoxicate the brain and drinking largely sobers us again."
Thus, starting a journey with little or half-knowledge will always leave a scar of failure. Gain as much knowledge as you can of your field. Be curious and come up with questions every day, search their answers; Educate yourself. 'Knowledge is the best asset available to mankind.'
• Never compare yourself with others.
Despite being 7.8 Billion people in the world, every human is a different individual in himself. So never make the mistake of comparing yourself or your work with anyone else. You are different, so is your journey and experience.
I hope you'll acknowledge all the creative thoughts and ideas in the back of your head and pluck out the most beautiful flower of those ideas to start your journey and take your first step towards success.
