If you want to be creative in your business, the first thing you need to do is start ignoring everybody. You don’t know if your idea is any good the moment it is created, neither does anyone else. You can just hope it is a strong gut feeling that it will work. And believing your inner gut feelings is not as easy as the optimists say it is.
Asking your best friends never worked quite well as expected, either. It’s not that they are being unhelpful, but most of the time they don’t know your world well as you know your world, no matter how hard you try to explain.
There’s a reason why feelings scares us. A big idea might change you. Your friends may love you but they don’t want you to change. If you change, their relationship with you also changes. People are often fearful of changes. They are comfortable with the way things are, that’s how they love you, not the way you may become.
They’ll be resistant to anything that catalyzes the change. That’s human nature. That’s why most good ideas are always initially resisted.[sws_blockquote_endquote align=”left” cite=”Walt Disney” quotestyle=”style02″]Get a good idea and stay with it. Dog it, and work at it until it’s done right. [/sws_blockquote_endquote]
