Be Great ... Create!
April 1, 2014
At your birth, you were given the most amazing thing - and it was free of charge. A gold mine between your ears. I have worked with many folks who have used this tool to their benefit, and to the benefit of those around them. I have also watched as folks used very little of this most important tool. Can you guess which group was more successful?
FREE AND VALUABLE
It's called a brain. You have not paid for this amazing gift, but it is so valuable that it is almost incomprehensible. It can get you out of trouble; it can think up solutions to a problem. It can determine which way is the better route to travel. It can make complex decisions in a moment's time. It can calculate, reason and emote.
Everything in the world, as of this moment, remains to be done or done over or done better. The only way to accomplish any of those three things is with your brain. Some of the hardest but most rewarding work you will do will be with your brain. Thinking can be a lot of work!
IT'S ALL OUT THERE
Your brain allows you to be creative. Out of this creativity comes great ideas. Everything starts as an idea. It happens in the mind before it happens in form. Every product out there today was in someone's mind before it became reality in form. The good news is that every product has not been perfected, or sold as efficiently as it could be. The reason is because this process requires better ideas. Be a better idea generator and you are highly valuable. Find a way to take something and make it better. Or if you can't do that, find a way to create something new.
The greatest show has not yet been thought of ... or produced. The greatest painting has not yet been painted. The greatest contract has not yet been written. The best car has not yet been built. You get the idea. The best is still out there, just waiting for you to figure it out by using that greatest gift that you received free of charge ... your brain.
THE VALUE OF IDEAS
So the world waits for your greatness. Your ideas are the most valuable thing you own. "If it is to be, it is up to me" is the saying. Get creating. With your brain, you can make something better. That's your mission. What will you do that will make that thing better than before you were here? Create something new. Or create something to make an existing thing better. Make an impact every day. Get out of routine and average, and think like someone who has the power to change their surroundings.
In this fast-moving world, there is tremendous opportunity for those who use more of their brainpower. It's always been that way. It will always be that way. It does not matter what your occupation. Everything can be improved; the best is yet to be created. Things are good today, but we are far from being at the top. There are infinite possibilities! Use your brain to think about the things that need to be done, or the things that need to be created, starting today, right now. Be great ... and create. Do this ... and watch your success take off!
