Creating something new from nothing.

In every technological advancement, each jump is predicated upon previous knowledge and experimentation.  In dealing with the truly creative mind, it’s that first moment of inspiration that they find so fascinating.  It’s the idea of doing something that’s never been done before that lights his or her fire.

The goal might be being the first person in your family to go to college.  It might be to get a better job or perhaps to start your own company.  It might be to build a house on a vacant lot.  In each case, the common thread is that you have the ability to create a physical manifestation from absolutely nothing.  At first, It’s like a vapor of impression slowly moving into form.  Then it begins to mold itself into shape and then suddenly it explodes into a violent spark of thought!

At first, It’s like a vapor of impression slowly moving into form inside your brain.  Then it begins to form itself into shape and then suddenly it explodes into a violent spark of thought!

Now you have to choose what to do!

The initial spark (i.e. your idea) is just as valuable as the foundation of a skyscraper. It is the birth of this impression that supports all subsequent accomplishments.  Your first spark might be deciding to go to medical school.  You study, sacrifice and drive yourself to do whatever it takes to graduate.  All during that time, you don’ know what the future holds for you.  You see that you are learning new things, but during the process, you have doubts, financial fears, and obstacles that you never dreamed that you would face.  After you graduate, you make more decisions and do the best you can to be smart in the direction of your career.  Even then, you don’t know for sure how things will end up.

Whatever your goal, the process is the same and if we are able to recognize the first stimulus (spark of thought, the impulse of possibility) we can not only change our life but the untold lives of others.

Who knows who might be inspired to undertake something because they saw you try?  Who knows the ramifications of your diligence?  Your son or daughter, by watching you struggle and succeed may be inspired to try harder in life.  Others that would give up might succeed knowing how long your struggle took and seeing you succeed in the end.

Who knows what the impact will be from the first baby steps you take? One thing is for sure, by pursuing your Idea, Goal or Dream, you will never know how many lives you have touched.  You might make the lives better for hundreds or even thousands of people that you will never even meet!
