Ideas drive people to achieve the impossible.
Whether you’re a photographer, painter, or artist of other sorts, you probably know first-hand how powerful an idea can be. If you, like most artists, have ideas regarding an alternative to the normal lifestyle, you’re most likely struggling to find a way to make a living from the work you love.
This same idea has probably lead you into some pretty tough situations, including credit card debt, utility shut-off, and relationship hardships.
But you stay the course. Because you believe in your idea.
Even if you find yourself with several more layers of responsibility than you had when you were younger, including a spouse, children, or a mortgage, you stay the course by staying up til three in the morning working on your manuscript or play.
Ideas are powerful, and for some … they shape lives.
Aside from lifestyle based ideas, ideas can take many different forms. The key is to do something about them.
Do Something With Your Ideas
Ideas are beautiful. But letting them go unheard, unseen, or otherwise unexpressed is a horrible shame.
Ideas can help people change the world, or at least make an impact on others … but only if you do something with your idea.
Share it. Exercise it. Be it.
If you don’t tell people about your ideas or ask people what they feel about them, there’s no discussion happening; without discussion, it’s impossible to grow an idea into something more than yourself stands behind.
Grow Your Idea With Like-Minded People
Connect with people interested in similar ideas. Even if you feel you’ve come up with a purely unique idea, chances are someone else feels the same type of pull that you feel from your idea.
Connecting with others enables you to discuss the idea with like-minded people, and thus further the idea behind yourself. In addition, this enables your idea to grow or evolve into something more refined.
How can you share your ideas?
