The Path to Great Ideas is through Great Questions
“For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate”. Margaret Heffernan
How do you recognize your great idea, the one that will stand out and lead you to your prosperity? That one idea that will create a tree of riches and a billion dollar business, the key is by asking specific, reasonable, targeted questions. Amy Poehler is credited with the following quote; “As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life”.
Realize that your brain and your mind is your greatest asset and whatever you send in or ask them is what they will reproduce. The most repeated questions and actions you ask and do on daily basis, becomes the engine on which your brain and mind operates up on. They’ll master it. Napoleon Hill said: “First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination”.
“The primary purpose of your brain is to do exactly what you tell it to do”, said Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for Mind Research. Whatever you send to the brain is what it reproduces for you. Therefore, the goal is to always ask yourself reasonable, mind blowing questions.
Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas. Marie Curie
Remember Archimedes? Sir Isaac Newton? Thomas Eddison? All the great scientists and philosophers that you read about and how they came up with their scientific theories and philosophies? They all were a result of great question and inquisitiveness.
How did an overflowing bathtub cause Archimedes to shout “Eureka! I have found it”? How did a falling apple shake the concept of gravity from the brain of Sir Isaac Newton? And what is it going to take to bring out that million-dollar idea that you have been stomaching? Ask yourself and do well to make an honest answer from within. That will be a step towards releasing your great idea. It is very simple if only you could be honest with yourself from now on!!
