Ever thought of a creative ideal? It’s like you’re sitting around watching television and all of a sudden you think of an idea that you know will be a great success. You think of all the ways it could benefit you and the people around you. You think of the pros and cons. You jot down ideas of how to make it better. You even do research on your idea. You seek advice from others. You’re so sure this is the best idea you’ve come up with yet. The only thing you need are the resources to help you pull it off. Well, what’s stopping you?
We’ve all seen the infomercials on people letting you know how their get-rich-quick schemes have worked for them. They tell you to read my book, or buy my CD or some other silly non-sense like that. It sounds good, and you think to yourself, well if this book worked for him/her, who’s to say it won’t work for me right? Wrong. Do not get bamboozled into spending your money on get-rich-quick books. That is not what made them successful. What made them successful was their impetus, their driving force. Their motivation. That’s the key to their success.
That creative idea you came up with a few weeks, maybe even a year ago can still bring you success. You just have to find your impetus. Everyone has it, it’s what brings it to the forefront. It doens’t even have to be an idea to make a lot of money. It can be something as simple as going back to school to get a degree. What is your driving force to keep you going? What is your goal? What are you trying to accomplish? Once you have these questions answered, then it should be easy sailing from there.
No one said the road to your success will be easy. That road may even come with traffic delays, and that’s perfectly alright. But, don’t let the traffic jam stop you. When you’re on the expressway and the traffic comes to a standstill. You get frustrated because you are so ready to go home. When traffic starts to move again, your frustration eases a little. Well think of your idea as your car sitting in traffic. Think of the goal as your road. Think of the accomplishment as home. Eventually when the traffic is clear, your car can move. Your idea can move. Traffic is only a temporary delay. It’s only permanent if you make it that way.
So the next time you have a creative idea that you feel will be beneficial to you, see it through. Find your impetus. Don’t worry about the approval of others. They are traffic jammers. Find alternative routes home. There’s more than one way to skin a cat. There’s more than one way to unleash that drive inside of you to turn your idea into a reality.
