Ideas require only two things to produce success and wealth. It is two halves to a whole, and those who know how to fit the two together are the ones who succeed and become wealthy.
Production & Recognition
An interesting point about the radio industry is that it is reliant on not only writing talent, but unique writing talent at that. Any excellent writers are no good in writing for the radio because they have been taught to see ideas. But radio, without the advantage of visuals, demands writers who can interpret ideas from a written manuscript in terms of sound.
There is plenty of room in radio for those who can produce or recognize ideas that can breathe new, competitive life into the traditional radio media.
If the foregoing comment on the opportunities of radio has not ignited your idea factory, you should just move on. Your opportunity is in some other field. If the comment intrigued you in the slightest degree, then go further into it, and you may find the one idea you need to round out your career.
What You Really Need
Never let it discourage you if you have no experience in radio. Andrew Carnegie knew very little about making steel–that from Carnegie’s own word–but he made practical use of two of the principles described in this book, and made the steel business yield him a fortune.
The story of practically every great fortune starts with the day when a creator of ideas and a seller of ideas got together and worked in harmony. Carnegie surrounded himself with men who could do all that he could not do. Men who created ideas and men who put ideas into operation, and made himself and others fabulously rich.
Creators And Operators
Note here that Hill does not say—in fact he takes pains to make the contrary clear—that you do not need to “know it all” or “do it all”; you only need to be able to produce and nurture an idea, and fill in the blanks of that which you cannot do. Once again, all it takes is a thinking mind and the determination to succeed to build wealth.
