How To Become A Creator
And others happen purely by conscious choice.
Generally speaking, most everything has a mix of both.
For example, you could be bored on a Sunday afternoon and go for a walk. You may start off without any particular destination, but that doesn’t mean you won’t make conscious choices along the way.
On the other hand, you could start out with a well constructed intention in mind, only to get sidetracked by an unexpected encounter.
Sometimes, these unexpected encounters are the best things that can happen.
The story of Facebook, for example, is really a story of a big accident. The book describing the story was called “The Accidental Billionaires.”
Sure, it wasn’t planned, but that doesn’t mean that anybody would be able to take advantage of such an opportunity.
I’m sure you know plenty of people who sit around coming up with great ideas. Everybody does that. But few people ever take action.
I saw this movie a few months ago, about a true story of a couple of inventors. They tried crazy invention after crazy invention, only to crash and burn every single time.
Finally they found one that worked, and they both became millionaires. The invention itself was incredibly simple, incredibly cheap to design and mass produce.
No matter what you’re doing, you’ll need to have a pretty clear picture of where you’re going, as well as the ability to respond to those things that happen by chance.
The good news is that you are hard wired to do this. You don’t need to learn anything. You just need to set your sights on what you’d like, and get going.
Here’s the even better news. Most people only have a vague idea of what they want. Even if that’s all you’ve got, that’s enough to get started.
All you’ve got to do is to try something. Anything. And see what happens.
If you get closer, great. Do more.
If you don’t get closer, no biggie. Do something else.
So long as you are willing to take action, accept whatever results you get, without self-judgment, you’ll be fine.
Along the way your target will become clearer, the path will become more visible, and your skills will SKYROCKET.
For some, this is pretty scary. Many of us are terrified to do something unless we KNOW we’ll be successful. We want guarantees, step by step plans, and if possible, to see somebody do it first so we know we’re not the only ones.
But where’s the fun in that? All followers get is the leftovers.
Leaders, creators, people like you, get much, much more.
