Mindset Mastery 123 – Behind Great Ideas

Ideas are the seeds of all things, and of all success. You know now that you have what it takes to be successful and live a fulfilling life. And behind all ideas is one thing. No doubt, whether you realise it or not, you have that, too.

Opportunity And Specialty

…Behind all ideas is specialized knowledge. Unfortunately, for those who do not find riches in abundance, specialized knowledge is more abundant and more easily acquired than ideas (think ‘on the job’ training). Because of this very truth, there is a universal demand and an ever-increasing opportunity for the person capable of helping men and women to sell their personal services advantageously. Capability means imagination, the one quality needed to combine specialized knowledge with ideas, in the form of organized plans designed to yield riches.

If you have imagination this chapter may present you with an idea sufficient enough to be the beginning of the riches you desire.

Remember, the idea is the main thing. Specialized knowledge can be found just around the corner—any corner!

Turning The Corner

Knowledge is easily accessed and simple to acquire. What makes the difference is the combination for success—the imagination and devotion to succeed, combined with that seed of an idea. That is the part that you are learning now. The rest is easy to find.

Most especially now with the advent of the Internet, anyone can access the specialized knowledge needed to succeed. You don’t even have to pay for it, as the web abounds with more than enough free knowledge to get you your start. There are no reasons left for non-success, only excuses. You have more than enough access to all the essential elements to live a successful, fulfilling, prosperous, happy life.

This concludes Chapter 5 of Mindset Mastery. Come back on Friday and we’ll jump right into Chapter 6, an exciting chapter exploring the Fifth Step toward Riches.

  1. Great blog, have been working on an idea for just over two weeks, and this blog re-enforces the idea, that anyone can achieve…..all you need is just a simple idea with a passion and it will be a success.
    Cheers Sean for sharing and writing beautifully.

  2. Hi Sean,

    Believe it or not I have had many original ideas that others have taken up on. For instance, it was my idea to have wheels on airport luggage – long before it happened. I kept on talking about it until someone went away and did it. Many other ideas I have had as well. I need to learn to process my ideas myself and not give them away to someone else.

    Perhaps I will on my next idea…….



    • Hi Jill,
      turn that “perhaps” in a definite and you have your success looming in front of you 🙂 You obviously have the ideas, you can get the specialized knowledge that you might need easily. You are ready to rock”n’ roll.

  3. I love the metaphor of “turning the corner”.

    The uncertainty of what lies ahead, something new, surprise… An opportunity for growth, to learn something new… An apt visual to introduce the next chapter Sean.

    Hi Sean,

    You’re right Sean, anyone can access the knowledge they need to succeed. It’s about making the most of that knowledge, having an idea and creating something special. It takes effort and hard work.

    We have to be willing to disciplined and dedicated to improving our mindset so that we can capitalize on our ideas.

  5. Having the idea and believing in it is much harder than finding the specialized knowledge you then need to transform it into reality.

    • Hi Renee,

      Yes, it’s not easy to come up with that one idea that will make us millions. But, I think we’re all capable of having that idea. How many times do we come up with a great idea and never act on it?

      I think have to develop our mindset and program it for success. Then I think we’ll see opportunities everywhere.

  6. Hello Sean,

    That is the beauty of the internet. Within our fingertips are specialised knowledge that we are after. With a great idea, and the right direction around the next bend then anything is possible. I never realised how easy it is to learn online, and how with one idea put into motion can lead to a more prosperous happy life 🙂

  7. Hi Sean

    We can have all the knowledge in the world but it is not going to be of any value if we don’t do anything with it.

    To me the only knowledge worth knowing is information that when put into some form of action will help others.

    A wonderful quote from your article sums the whole post up nicely “Imagination and devotion to succeed, combined with that seed of an idea”. And this all needs to be followed up with taking massive action to complete the formula.

    • Hi Elly,

      I think we are learning an incredible amount in this competition. By the time the seven weeks is up, we’re going to have a wealth of information at our disposal.

      Then it’ll be up to us to find a way to utilise this information in a way that will help others. We have to take massive action in order to succeed and I think you’re doing an incredible job.
