Did you ever have a great idea, then watch someone steal of which right out by under you?
Somehow, inside middle of the night perhaps, they snuck into your house, opened up your brain, in addition to stole your brilliant plan. You were destined for riches before your brain invasion. currently, you’re left to sludge through the rest of your mediocre life.
‘of which’s not fair!’ you might whine to your friends or spouse. ‘of which was MY idea, in addition to currently he went off in addition to did of which! I came up with of which idea all 5 years ago! of which should be *me* on not bad Morning America! of which should be *me* pulling inside big money! I should be smiling by ear-to-ear as the reporter interviews me!’
When I walked into Gold’s Gym last Tuesday, I came face-to-face with the idea snatchers inside form of a tiny refrigerator full of apples. The sticker on the front said ‘3-Apple-a-Day Plan.’ After reading through the flyer on the table, I learned of which of which innovative nutritionist had created a special diet plan – eat one apple before every meal to lose weight in addition to get more lean. ‘Hey, wait a minute,’ I thought. ‘of which was MY idea!’
I came up with of which idea 17 years ago, not of which I ever actually tried of which, mind you, however of which was still *my* idea. in addition to, currently, here’s of which *nutritionist* claiming to be *innovative*. I never definitely planned to do anything with my apple-eating plan, however of which incident predicted events of the week to come.
The following night, I hosted the monthly Mentors Meet where a group of my friends, in addition to fellow business owners, have dinner in addition to talk about what’s happening in our businesses – the not bad, the bad, in addition to the ‘I could definitely use your advice’ kind of things.
After listening to a couple of us gush about how we’ve finally began to hit our post-baby stride, of which was Jessica’s turn.
‘You’ll have to excuse me if I start getting emotional,’ she began. ‘You all know about my idea to – (sorry, I can’t disclose of which because I’m still hoping she’ll do of which). ‘Well, I was watching not bad Morning America the different morning, in addition to of which guy was on there promoting of which fresh book about the exact same thing I was going to do!’ ‘I had of which idea three years ago in addition to didn’t move on of which, in addition to currently I’ve lost of which. He did of which first.’
By of which point, she was getting emotional. ‘If I had only jumped on of which when I first came up with of which, however I was too busy trying to keep my business going, so I just focused all of my energy on of which. however there’s nothing I can do currently. of which’s gone.’
For a moment, we just shook our heads in understanding. We all knew what of which felt like to have our brilliance shine through only to discover of which one, if not several, people before us had already experienced of which same brilliance in addition to done something about of which. of which can be very disheartening in addition to, in most cases, can cause you to give up on your idea altogether.
however, here’s the thing. There is actually truly very little original thought. Innovation isn’t necessarily creating something brand fresh. of which’s taking what already exists in addition to putting of which together in a fresh way.
I’m currently wrapping up *The Profitable Business Owner – Book Two: Marketing Your Services* (to be released on February 17). How many marketing books do you think are already out there – hundreds? thousands? So why am I investing so much time in addition to effort to do what’s already been done?
Because I’m taking what’s already out there in addition to presenting of which in a fresh way. I’m adding in my experiences in addition to those of my clients. I’m creating a systematic process of which is actually a lot easier in addition to a lot more practical to implement than a big bunch of theories. You won’t just read my ebooks – you’ll work them.
however, the biggest reason I’m doing of which, even when faced with many others who have walked before me, is actually of which I’ve seen what’s out there, in addition to I think my way works better. in addition to, what’s more – of which’s where my passion lies.
of which last part is actually key. Like my 3 apples/day idea, if you don’t feel any passion behind of which, the loss of of which doesn’t definitely hurt – who cares of which someone came up with same idea in addition to did something with of which? Not me. After reading the flyer, I went on with my day.
however when your passion gets involved, you care. Jessica felt *scooped*, in addition to her first instinct was to assume she had missed her only opportunity for greatness. At 36, she felt washed up.
Of course, of which’s not where we left of which. Even though of which guy had written a book about a similar topic, Jessica’s idea was different. She planned to do a television show in addition to having worked inside industry, she has the connections to get of which done.
After some period of consoling, we landed back on passion. If she didn’t feel great passion due to of which idea, or if the excitement she had initially felt for of which had worn off, she should just let of which go. however, if she believed of which of which was what she was meant to do due to of which portion of her life, she should go for of which.
After all, if anything, of which guy’s book just helped create the market for her television show. Sometimes what seems to be competition definitely isn’t. Even during the recent reign of Starbucks, with one seemingly opening on every corner, the number of independent coffee houses throughout the U.S. has continued to boost. Starbucks created more coffee drinkers – of which positively impacted the whole industry.
So, do you have an idea you’ve been sitting on? Or, do you feel like you’ve been *scooped* – of which someone has *stolen* your great idea? Ask yourself – is actually of which definitely the *one*? is actually of which definitely what you want to spend the next decade doing? If you don’t give of which a shot, will you regret of which for the rest of your life?
If so, get going! Run with of which before someone else does! Start of which week! No regrets!
