One of my most favorite things to do is to take an idea of mine and turn it into bank deposits. It must be in my top five most enjoyable things to do in business. Being an entrepreneur, I have had to do this to survive and raise a family. Of course, I apply this process in all the different areas of my life not just making money.
Today, I want to share with you the steps that I go through for things to happen and become a reality.
Start with a goal, a dream, or an idea.
Gather as many facts as possible on the issue.
Look for ways to think differently about your idea, allowing yourself to become constructively discontent.
Write your thoughts on paper or type them into your computer.
Let your creative juices flow.
Be careful in deciding whom to share your ideas with.
It is always wise to gain another's perspective, so enlist the willing cooperation of others to participate in your thinking and planning processes.
Ask yourself these questions: What obstacles may need to be overcome in order for this idea to become a reality? Who else may need to be involved?
Build the plan and take action. Do not fear, but be brave, bold and confident.
"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
