The Idea Deficit

By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Prosperity, Success.

Most people think the reason they’re not rich is because they don’t have enough money.  But that’s not true.

The reason they’re not rich is because they haven’t come up with the right idea.  Or they came up with the right idea, but haven’t acted upon it.

The only thing between you and your first (or next) million – is the right idea.

There are many factors contributing to it. Not just idea and action. There are some with great ideas with massive action but didn't succeed.

"How to think" is certainly a skill that must be developed

absolutely true, ideas rule the world. I heard this statement from Stephen Covey " the genius of the free enterprise system is an idea.......... an idea whose time has come"

What counts is acting on the idea. Without execution, ideas don't add up to much! Do something with it.

But please, make sure it's a good idea.. brutal on Dragon's Den, not as much on Shark Tank, where people get shot down with the stupidest ideas, heart breaking when they've put their life savings into them..  and Mr. Wonderful says something so brutal, bordering on cruel.. but what the hell.

Randy.. thanks so much for sharing this and as always its very timely. There is definitely a disparity of ideas, especially those that touch people and move them towards change. And this is why you bring so much value to the world. It's my intention to bring change and moments ago, I retained a consultant to help me mold and develop an idea I've been working on for months and there's no telling where it will lead. My vision will continue to evolve and grow clearer and your reminders of critical thinking and letting go have been of tremendous help. I'm deeply grateful.

Randy your always challenging how I think about things!  If a person believes their not rich because they don't have enough money  you claim is a false statement.  But if that is what they believe then it is "true".  Even a millionaire may think they do not have enough money, therefore excluding themselves from being part of the rich. I wholeheartedly agree with the lack of ideas because good ideas with action can make the world a better place!  Thanks for all you do, Randy.

@million dollar a good idea can be recognized in various ways.. one that comes readily to mind is that the outcome or results are geared towards prosperity
