You may have learned to become scared of your good ideas because you see that you get all excited about them, but then many of them never materialize. First know that any idea you have that you feel excitement about moves you forward because you are learning that you can come up with ideas that you love. This is invaluable. Next if you get your idea down on paper you move another step. Now you have a space to hold the idea as your heart and mind move onto creating other exciting ideas. Then if you tell someone else about your exciting idea, you are gifting another person with the joy you have created within you. And wow, if you come up with one small action towards bringing the idea into physical form that is amazing. Suddenly, you are riding the Next Step Train. Your idea will gain a life of its own as it is given physical form.
Big ideas always take a community to create. There’s no such thing as a one person basketball team, a one person large company, a one person world-changing movement. Our brilliant ideas are reminders that we have this life to meet other people, to play (work) with other people and to love other people. When we build community and collaborate around our magnificent ideas, often as a byproduct we will make money. Making money can be a very welcome byproduct, but it’s always a byproduct when we move from the excitement of creating. The first aim of an idea created with heart is always to connect, to expand life, to bring joy, to celebrate, to birth love, to cast out fear.
