Original ideas are a result of clarity of mind. Original ideas do not arise from memories of old experiences. Original ideas are born into your mind without the help of outside sources; they just happen to you when you prepare your consciousness for something fresh and new.
If you’re to be an originator of great new ideas, you must be willing to let go of the old. You cannot think with a fresh mind when it is cluttered with thoughts of old times.
When your thoughts of a bright, new future are unadulterated with memories of past worries – you embrace the idea of originating a new life with no resistance.
The world-thinking will tell you to be cautious of thinking something original and new. It will say to you, “Wait and see.” If you wait too long, you will be flooded with a sea of old thoughts that will surely dim that bright future that awaits you.
Progress requires originality. Growth and development requires entertaining original ideas that encourage you to try new things. Every major benefit to humanity comes from breaking from the old and embracing originality.
That’s worth saying again: Every major benefit to humanity comes from breaking from the old and embracing originality.
Do you respect original ideas that pop into your head, or do you quickly scurry back to the old that makes you a deadhead?
“The key to every man is his thought … He can only be reformed by showing him a new idea.” -Emerson. Might I add to that: “And, a person is transformed, which is a greater feat than reformed, when he shows himself an original idea, and acts on it.”
