Having imagination (often means) it takes you an hour to write a paragraph that, were you unimaginative, would take you only a minute.

Capital isn’t that important in business. Experience isn’t that important. You can get both of these things. What is important is ideas.

A thought is often original, though you have uttered it a hundred times. It has come to you over a new route, by a new and express train of association.

—Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (by Harris & Ewing; Public Domain)

The human mind is an awe-inspiring tool, but it responds to what we feed into it. If we are constantly focused on negative thoughts and dark introspection, the mind will find a way to fuel outcomes supporting those thoughts. If, however, we remain focused on what we need to accomplish, what we need to achieve, the mind will go to work finding the solutions we need to make those things manifest within our lives.

With a positive outlook, dwell on that which you passionately want to come to fruition. See it happening; see yourself basking in the glow of that achievement. Feel and live as though you have already accomplished it, and you will suddenly see, with clarity, all of the thoughts needed to make it happen. They have always been there; you have now just made clear to your mind what you were looking for.

…And maybe your mind has already hatched that idea. You would be amazed at how many people lack creative thought and the passion to pursue a dream. If you have an idea to better a certain area of life, pursue it! Don’t worry about the pushback you will receive, or how “saturated” or mature an industry appears on the surface, there is always room for radical improvement. Forget conventional wisdom. Think differently, push the boundaries of your imagination, and cultivate your idea until it positively impacts the lives of others!

If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said ‘faster horses.’

Ford, Henry

—Henry Ford

There’s an old business adage that goes “find out what people want and give it to them better than anyone else.” Here’s the problem: what if they don’t know what they want until you show them something they must have? Look at all the inventions that were laughed off as unnecessary or unworkable right up to the point at which they came indispensable. Instead of glomming on to someone else’s idea, think creatively, come up with a new vision, and disregard the critics as you develop and market it.
