There is a myth that genius people are the source of genius ideas.
As if brilliant ideas are divine, a gift from the gods that are given to a chosen few.
Ideas don’t come out of no where.
Ideas take nurturing, they take practice. Most of all, great ideas require a willingness to fail.
Most of my ideas are terrible. But after enough bad ideas, I eventually find some worth looking at a little deeper.
The trick is to have the courage to say your ideas out loud.
Even if they are bad. Even if you think people will laugh at you, or scoff at your input, or call you crazy. Say it anyway.
When you do that, you make them real. Once they are real, they have a chance to come alive.
