Your Great Idea

You wake up at three o’clock in the morning with an innovative idea, the most amazing idea. You think to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that before?” There’s nothing like it available on planet earth and this one thing would make life so much easier and the world a better place. You have received a gift from the universe, and you go back to sleep.

You are in the right place at the right time to receive the idea what will you do

In a universe where anything is possible, it was assumed you were the right person, in the right place at the right time to receive this amazing gift. What will you do about it?

After you get up in the morning, the idea seems just as good as it did in the middle of the night, and you think to yourself, “This really would be a great improvement in the world.”

Later that day, you tell the idea to a friend, who enthusiastically reinforces what a great idea you have. The friend says he/she wants to buy one when it becomes available. even knows someone who might be willing to invest in your idea, if you pursue it and congratulates you on potentially being the next millionaire.

This could be it, your golden ticket. After work you met up with a trusted friend and tell him/her about your idea. In this instance you are cautioned that your idea is so good that you should never mention it again because if anyone ever heard about it – they would do it without you – and you’d end up with nothing.

You are asked, “Do you have a patent?” A patent attorney will run about $5,000 to get started… Is it worth $5K to pay, just so you can talk to someone about your idea without the fear of losing it? Even so, do you have the money to defend your patent if someone steals your idea?

Days go by, you want to talk to someone about your idea, but you fear someone else will take it and run with it, leaving you with the empty bag. All the while having a feeling that this may be the next best thing the world is waiting for.

You start to question your worthiness. Why did you get the idea in the first place? You’re not qualified, don’t have the skill set, don’t have the equipment, raw materials or financing needed to make it happen. You don’t know how to do it, never have done it before, can’t do it by yourself, don’t know the people who can help to make it happen and couldn’t afford to hire them if you did.

Wait, you remind yourself about a story you heard about, where this person had a great idea – just a regular person, like you and me – who didn’t give up, shared their idea with a key person who took the idea and ran with it, paying the person who had the idea millions and millions of dollars for sharing it with them.

That’s it! You think; if I could just get my idea in front of the right person, then I could bless the world with my idea and make a fortune: If I could just get on Shark Tank. You’ve heard about the show, but never really watched it. So, you set out to watch a few episodes to get the address to submit your idea.

After watching Shark Tank, you realize that you’re not prepared enough to even consider pitching your idea to anyone yet. Now, you’re even more confused.

You find yourself thinking about it too much and unable to do anything about it. You’ve found yourself in the state of paralysis of analysis. You are so focused on the process, the obstacles and second-guessing yourself that you’re unable to make decisions or take action.

Finally, you’re just too exhausted from the whole ordeal. You lock away the idea, and wait for someone to magically appear and offer you millions of dollars for your idea; otherwise it is a faded memory.

Until the moment when you see your idea is now available via TV, the Internet or seeing it for sale in the store.

Aargh!” You slap your forehead and say, “That was MY idea!

How does it really work?

The universe longs for us to have the best life possible, so it selects someone to receive ideas that will benefit mankind and could likewise have huge monetary rewards rewarding the recipient for sharing the gift with the world.

When you are blessed with such a gift, the idea is like precognition in that you have received a glimpse of something the world needs and will have in the future.

After sharing the gift with you, the universe taps its foot and watches to see what you will do with it. If you do nothing and bury it, the idea will be given to someone else… and the process continues until someone takes the action to release it to the world.

You might consider readying yourself for the next lightning strike.

Quit Now Don’t Quit

Most people have had a dream, maybe even pursued it or gave-it-a-go once… The virgin attempt did not go as planned, so they gave up; quit.

One might resign one’s self to the belief that some people were just destined to be pawns in the game of life, thinking

“If I thought for a moment that I might have been beckoned by a higher calling, answered the call, and failed; why wouldn’t I conclude that I was not one of the chosen ones and just give up?”

Dont quit

Do you think Paul M. Zoll just woke up in the middle of the night with an idea of building a mechanism that you could surgically implant into a human body that would shock the heart into beating properly when necessary churned out a working model on the first attempt?

How many attempts do you think it took Percy Spencer to come up with a machine that would heat your food using microwaves?

What if Wilbur & Orville Wright had given up the first time they crawled out of the wreckage of their first attempt at flight?

What if Josephine Cochrane quit after her first attempt to create a device that would free housewives from having to wash dishes in the sink failed?

What if Les Paul would have given up when his first experiment at trying to create guitar that could be amplified without a microphone went up in smoke?

I can tell you the answer to what if.

If these individuals would not have answered the call to see their vision come to life, and pursued it with such dedication to not let countless failures dissuade them…

Someone else would do it.

When an idea desires to be born into our reality, nothing can stand in its way. The idea appears in the minds of many individuals at the same time… Many people can participate in the birthing process… and it can go through many stages before someone answers the call and is willing to accept the commitment to endure the birthing pangs that will bring it to life.

Sometimes, the idea is born as a futuristic story, like the nonsensical science fiction which has become present day science. Things that could not have been rationally conceived of, were making themselves known via minds that could do nothing more than document their visions in fictitious stories.

When laser technology was making itself known, Arthur L. Schawlow accepted the challenge as did Gordon Gould and Charles Hard Townes, all at the same time.

How many times have you (or someone you know) come up with an original idea… thought it was a good one… only to see it appear in the marketplace, with no credit to you (or the person that you know who had the idea)?

That’s a perfect example of how the universe evolves.

Have you been given a vision that yearns to come forth?
Did you try previously and fail?
Is your idea still waiting, or have you been given a new one?

Fear of failure is the mechanism, more often than not, keeping us from wanting to accept the call.

Plus, there’s no real responsibility; if I don’t accept the call, it will just go to someone else. It’s not like the world will suffer due to my reticence.

Here’s the rub:

You have come to this world for a reason.

You have a special purpose.

Are you ready to live the life you were born to live, contributing your innate skills and talents to the larger community, proclaiming your message to the world?

Are you a part of the growing populace awakening to answer the call?

Isn’t now the right time to start singing your song?
