Are You Ignoring That Little Thought or Idea?

What happened to that brilliant idea that you once had?

Did you ignore it because you thought that it was just a "little" thought?

Have you ever considered what that little thought would have become if you had acted on your instincts or if you had paid more attention to it?

Imagine a scenario, where you are sitting at home watching television or reading a book… 

Suddenly in the dark tunnel of your mind, a light bulb is turned on as a thought or an idea crosses your mind. The thought catches your attention but seems  kind of meaningless and you are tempted to discard it; but wait a minute! That thought could be the potential beginning of the success you have so much yearned for.

 As you continue to mull over the thought, your mind becomes alert and you suddenly see a possibility, a realization, a solution, a conclusion, or find the answer to a problem whose solution has long eluded you. This becomes an AHA moment and everything freezes around you as you excitedly try to grasp the practicality of that little but powerful thought..and how it could change your life.

It is almost as if a divine being has whispered the perfect solution into your ear, awakened your senses to a new reality and brought illumination into your life. It is like finding the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle.

Your confidence and enthusiasm increases as you become conscious of the great possibilities that could arise if you acted upon that little thought. You become eager to build upon that thought and begin to write down all the ideas that are streaming from that little thought for later review and action.

Seemingly meaningless little thoughts or ideas when acted upon have a potential to explode into great projects. 

You may have heard people say many times that, “it just came to me in a flash”. Yes, in a flash moment, many successful projects have been born from the little positive thoughts that were carefully nurtured and recognized as tickets to great things.

Be alert! Don’t waste opportunities to act on potentially brilliant ideas.

You don’t have to wait for a major idea, a master strategy, or approval from your peers in order to act on your money making little thoughts.

That little thought or idea that you have right now is the beginning of great things if you decide to follow it through.
