How To Recognize Opportunity
As children we saw opportunity around every corner. Was that true for you?
I know that it was for me. Like the time that I discovered a weight loss program that was typed out on a small piece of paper in my parents dresser. It read, "Lose Ten Pounds In Ten Days".
It didn't take me but two days before I had placed a classified
ad asking for $1 to learn the secret recipe to losing weight. And guess what, people sent me money!
What happened to us? Where did all of that creativity come from and where is it now?
Creativity lives at the core of every person on this planet; I guess you could say that it is a part of our very nature. It is how we think and behave, and no matter how far off this road of creative ability we have seemingly driven, we have to believe that each of us still has that magic within us.
I believe that creativity is the natural outflow of our creator. Think about it, the creator himself, the master creator and designer of all that we see around us created you! And in doing so, he placed the essence of his own nature and creative ability within you.
From the smallest molecule to the ice flake on the windshield of your car creativity can be seen. All of creation around us speaks of forethought, exactness and detail.
Creating something out of nothing is a part of who we are, it is the great governing factor in all of our lives.
Ideas That Create Cash On Demand
The first time I met Joe Sabah, it was at a seminar that he was teaching. He told of an invention he had created as a young child. He remembers the times that he sat in class and watched as kids went to the teacher's desk to sharpen their pencils. They would insert the pencil in one end and as they did, they would grab the handle with the other and start grinding away. Joe thought to himself, wouldn't it be wonderful if someone could attach some kind of motor apparatus to that sharpener that would make it so that the pencils could be sharpened automatically. He went on to draw up plans in exact detail that would make the first electric pencil in the history of mankind possible. Wow, he thought to himself, what an idea!
Do you know what happened next? Joe took the paper that he had worked so hard on, tore it up and threw it in the trash can and went to recess.
Ideas, we all have them, but what do we do with them? Well, the fact is that the majority of our ideas just sit there. For all intents and purposes we do what Joe did that day in class, we wade them up and throw them away.
A great example of this was my wife's uncle, Denny Proctor. Denny worked for a construction company. His job was to go from construction site to construction site and treat freshly cured concrete foundations with a special waterproofing sealant. He would stand day after day spraying concrete solution with a special high powered wand. One day he had an idea that would change his life forever!
What if someone created a high pressure wand that everyday people could attach to their garden hose and use to clean their car with? In fact they could use it to clean the exterior of their house, lawn mower or anything else they needed to washed.
Along with his brother they created a special power washer and they called it, Jet-X Sprayer! You might remember seeing one of the many commercials that were run back in the 1970's selling Jet-X. To say the least millions of dollars of products were sold as a result.
Ideas are a dime a dozen? the person who puts them into practice is PRICELESS!
