Great ideas are everywhere around you.

Look around. Think about every object you see and its history.

It needed a lot of hard work, effort and dedication to be created; countless failures so that it can become useful; financial support to be the best version of itself; marketing researches and strategies to make people familiar with it and find what the target audience wants.

Many other actions and people are included so that it can be delivered directly to the buyer at the right place and time.

But before all that, there was that one person, who is just like me and you.
He may have been sitting in his room in front of the computer, when suddenly something incredible happened… an idea was born.

Everyone can come up with a great idea. But it’s not worth it to live your life just waiting for the greatest one to come.

We live in a modern world now and the story of Newton – who was sitting under a tree when he discovered the law of gravity, after an apple hit him on the head – is just too old.

So now, if you haven’t chosen to queue with the others who are waiting for a great idea, here are some things you can do:

How to Have Great Ideas?

1. Keep your eyes wide-open.

Every object, thought, person, event and place has a potential idea in progress. The magic can happen after simply combining  an object with a feature of another one that is completely irrelevant to it.

You can find the foundation of an idea in a small talk with colleagues, when jogging, after a lecture, from a great book/movie/song and so on.

Just look around you! The world is full of ideas that are just waiting for someone to find them and turn them into reality.

2. Brainstorming.

This is one of the best things I’ve ever heard of that helps me with my creativity. I strongly recommend it to you!

Read a few articles or blog posts about every technique of the process of brainstorming. Eventually you’ll find yourself using them in your free time or when you have to be somewhere, but feel bored, or just when you are concentrating.

I use it for writing but you can apply it to every aspect of your life, especially when having a problem.

3. Carry a notebook wherever you go.

This is very important, because as someone who is on his way to success, you have to keep track of your thoughts, which you can later transform into great business ideas.

Thus you will always be prepared when inspiration comes.

4. Believe in your idea.

It’s priceless to have support from your family and friends, but not everyone is that lucky.

With today’s negative and skeptic people it is better if you yourself stand up for your own ideas.
After all, no one else but the person who comes up with them is able to have such a deep faith so that they can become reality.

Now you can start applying those tips in your daily life.

Soon it will be like a game for you, in which the winner will be no one else but you. Prepare to be amazed by the creativity you never knew you had!

Which step was easier for you? Do you have people who support you when it comes down to creativity?

  1. The hardest part for me was not having people support my ideas. I suppose I was looking for encouragement and validation. But as I look back in life, my best ideas and successes were the ones I just followed through on and really didn’t talk to people about what I was doing. I think that’s my key. Have the idea, harness the energy within, ask general questions if others (like a market-who do you think could use something with…) but not the idea itself. It’s your baby. It’s nurtured by you for at least ” 9 months” before its ready to be shown to the world. Also I think I’ve learned that not too many people think like I do, so why bother trying to get them to do so? Just do it.

    Lidiya, thank you for your blogs -I’m learning so much from you! Blessings to you!

    1. You don’t need anyone else to believe in you but yourself.

      And yes, they can’t really understand what you’re talking about, after all the idea was born in your own head, and is the result of your unique way of thinking, imagination, past experience, values and principles.

      I also stopped sharing my ideas at some point. It’s easier for me to focus on goals if I don’t talk about them with friends. Because if I do, there are expectations involved, and at some point I find myself doing things the way others want me to do them.

      Thanks for stopping by. So glad you like what I write here.

  2. There’s definately a great deal to find out about this topic.
    I like all of the points you have made.
