I saw this video on youtube the other day on where great ideas come from and found it to be spot on with my own experience. Check it out at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NugRZGDbPFU
Many times people are looking for the “silver bullet” or “magic formula” to success. I know for a couple years I was caught up in the idea of just finding the right program to go through that would give me quick success and take care of all my problems.
But time and experience has shown me that coming up with successful ideas is often a result of continuous effort and education and not something that happens in a flash of inspiration.
Even when I have had flashes of insight, I realize now that those flashes of insight came AFTER a period of time of studying and taking action. By constantly surrounding myself with educational books, audio programs, seminars, masterminding with others, listening to mentors, etc., eventually pieces would come together until I had a winning formula.
So if you’re still trying to figure out what kind of books to write or how to set up your business, just remember that it’s not necessarily an overnight thing.
Take action on what you DO know you can do, be in a constant state of learning and growth, and trust your intuition through the process. And trickiest thing of all, let go of wanting to have all the answers. You’ll never have all the answers (even if you think you do), and it’s a lot more fun to enjoy the journey not knowing where it will take you.
