Have you ever had an idea that you knew would impact your environment and the world?
That would break down barriers and blow people’s minds?
Then why haven’t you acted on that idea?
Why haven’t you brought your ideas to life?
Often times people are so fearful to bring their ideas to life because of assumptions they make about what it takes to manifest those ideas
This article is here to debunk those assumptions and free you of a parasite called fear that is hindering you from unleashing your creative greatness.
The first and most cliched fear is the lack of money.
People refuse to bring their ideas to life because they fear that they don’t have enough money.
How many times have we heard this one?
There are countless ideas that turned out to be life-changing such as Apple and Mailchimp
They started with little to no money and they made it
So will you
You can acquire the funds yourself as well
There are so many resources out there and information is at your fingertips.
Use the internet to your advantage, do some extensive research and you will find that there are many options that you can utilize
Service requires no money, just time, learn hard skills.
There are many highly demanded hard skills that you can learn
Copywriting, analytics, data mining, data presentation, search engine optimization, and content management systems are among many other skills that you can learn and eventually turn into a stream of income
Venture out in these areas, learn something new
You just might come across something that will aid you in creating or launching your idea.
The next thing that terrifies people more than Nightmare on Elm Street is their lack of knowledge
Yes, I said it, your lack of knowledge.
Your assumption that you do not have the knowledge to culminate an idea into reality.
You are smarter than you think, you just need to have a little faith.
Expand your thinking by continually educating yourself
Read articles, watch youtube videos, use search engines, there is a plethora of information out there
Waiting on you to discover it
Experiments will lead you to learn the most valuable lessons necessary for success.
Create a hypothesis and test it
Test through simulation
Get answers to your questions from experts
Read and research possible outcomes.
The next fear people have is they aren’t well connected
Don’t worry, no one was born with connections, it takes time and effort to build strong connections.
It does not have to be a tedious process
The first thing you should do is to utilize the tools available
Linkedin is a great way to connect with people
Do your research
Connect with persons that are relevant to your ideas
Schedule meetings with your new connections
You never know who you may meet
You can also try to find older mentors, an older mentor will instantly expand your network
Older mentors have unused resources and a developed network that they have already used but not exhausted.
They are usually looking for a protege to carry the torch and will also make their network available for use
It would save you years worth of mistake because they would have already gone through some experiences
They would be able to direct you along your path
The final thing that may be killing your creative dreams is you.
Yourself and your lack of faith.
Remove the doubt and fear and believe in yourself and your idea.
Don’t hold back.
