The human mind is gushing with wonderful ideas. The challenge is to allow these ideas to flow into your life so you can create your world as you want it to be. You hear 60,000 NO’s during the first decade of your life. Those NO’s build mental walls – brick by brick – that damn the flow of wonderful ideas from gushing onto your field of consciousness.
Question: What can I do to break down the walls?
Answer: Here’s three things to do:
Be a rebel; rebel against conformity that insists only a select few have the genius of creativity. Prefer to stand alone with your own ideas rather than go along with the crowd’s ideas.
Be a keen noticer; notice fresh ideas that pop into your head as you go through your day. Write them down and give them the value they deserve by asking, “How could this idea serve me in some enriching way?”
Be a deep-prober; probe deeper into ideas that come to you. Explore whether there’s more to the idea than just a single thought.
Great minds love exploring ideas. Average minds dismiss them as frivolous. Small minds don’t even notice them.
