When an Idea Feels ALIVEJul 30, 2019
How do you know which ideas to follow?
I consider myself a creator by nature. I love bringing ideas to life and sharing them with the rest of the world. But how do you figure out which ideas are truly worth pursuing? After all, we are creative by nature and we have a ton of ideas each day. That can leave you spinning with confusion and doubt.
A friend once asked me as a successful entrepreneur how I knew which ideas to follow. It was hard for me to explain — it was just like a feeling in my body and an innate knowing. As I went back and analyzed, I realized that the ideas that turned out most successful were the ones I was really excited about… the ones that felt, well, ALIVE.
I believe the majority of business that fail do so because they're developed with a strategic mind only, and they're not coming from any kind of aliveness or real passion. Next time you're deciding whether to pursue an idea, ask yourself: Does this idea light me up? Does it feel good in my body? Does it give me energy? Do I feel excited thinking about the work it's going to take to bring it to life?
Do you have an idea that feels ALIVE?
