Ideas come and go, sometimes we miss them and sometimes we spend so long thinking about them that we forget to put them to action. Whether you’re a creative person or you think more mathematically or logically we’re all capable of creating ideas it’s what we do with those ideas that counts.
Do you ever feel like your ideas are wasted. You have an idea you think about it, develop it in your mind but then it eventuates to nothing more than being an idea that you once had. Do you ever think about those ideas and think… “I wonder what would have happened if I actually brought that idea to life.” Do you know what is scarier to think. Every single thing around you stemmed from an idea. This post came from an idea after I was inspired by the glowing jars in this image. I was thinking how amazing they looked and wondered how someone came up with the idea of having glowing glasses… then I thought to myself I wonder how they did that. Personally I don’t have a scientific bone in my body, my brother on the other hand has a PHD in physics… Yeah I am as confused as you are. I guess what I am trying to say here is that just because you don’t know how to bring your idea to life it doesn’t mean there isn’t someone else who can.
Think about a company, any company Apple for example started out as an idea. At the time Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak wanted to create a computer. When you start a company you do require a few things. One of the things they needed was money. To generate the $1,350 in capital they used to start Apple, Steve Jobs sold his Volkswagen microbus, and Steve Wozniak sold his Hewlett-Packard calculator. You can’t be entirely sure how much Apple is worth because people own shares in the company however in May 2018 Icahn Enterprises Chairman Carl Icahn told CNN he thinks apple is worth $1.4 trillion. Crazy to think all that success started by selling a mini van and a calculator.
Everything starts from an idea Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb possibly after thinking that candles were dangerous. The first petrol powered automobile was invented by Karl Benz, maybe he was sick of having to clean up horse poo. Chairs, cups, ovens, houses, shoes and clothes all of the things you take fore granted on a daily basis were once just an idea. Can you imagine how different life would be without some of these things. I am not saying you need to invent things or even make millions of dollars what I am saying is take time to enjoy the simple things in life. If you’ve got ideas go get them. If there is something you want to do explore that idea. You never know where your ideas might land you one day and personally I think that is one of the most exciting prospects we as humans have to look forward to.
