Bureau of Idea Approval

I love this blog post on Monetize Yourself. Pardon the pun, but it's a good idea. We should all work together to make our world a more idea-friendly place. I have experienced how idea-unfriendly our culture can be.

"Wait a minute," you say. "I see a lot of people making their ideas happen. The United States is built on the concept of entrepreneurship."

My response to that is, "Then why aren't you acting on your good ideas?"

What you've probably discovered is that if you tell someone about a good idea you have, especially if it's your spouse or someone close to you, you were probably humored if not immediately discouraged. When I say "humored" I mean that they don't believe you can do it but they don't want to say it out loud.

Those who turn their ideas into reality aren't the only ones with good ideas. They were either well supported and encouraged by those close to them, had to convince their loved ones that it's worth encouraging and supporting them, or they simply chose to go against the grain and do it anyway.

So, are you one of those people with a great idea? GO FOR IT. DO WHATEVER IT TAKES IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE IN IT!

Have you been discouraged by those close to you who don't believe in you or that you can do it? That's a hard one.

Your road is going to be much harder. If those holding you back are friends or other people you're not married or related to, get them out of your life. You don't need them. If you are related or married to them, you then have to figure out how to develop a healthier relationship so that they can learn to encourage you in your dreams.
