Do you ever think that the ideas that spring up in your mind are not good enough? If so, what makes you think that way? Don’t you ever underestimate the value of your ideas. This may be a million dollar advice. You know why? Richard Branson says that “So many aspiring entrepreneurs are held back because they are waiting for a good idea to come to them. But in reality, there is no such thing as a bad idea, if you think differently, dream big, and commit to seeing it realized.”

Jason Scott Montoya, author and entrepreneur, believes that “The power of an idea is in our ability to capture it, harness it, bring it to life, and sustain it over time.” This means that the power of our ideas is in our ability to give wings to them, and to empower them enough by turning them into action.

These are the 7 ways we can make our ideas astonishingly powerful:

(1) Believe in your idea: One important thing that gives power to your ideas is to believe in those ideas. Ralph Waldo Emerson, U.S. poet and essayist, says that “It is a lesson which all history teaches wise men, to put trust in ideas, and not in circumstances.”

The idea whose time has come is the one you really believe in. The idea that is truly loaded with power is the one you have faith in. If you don’t believe in your ideas, others wouldn’t believe in them.

(2) Share and spread it: Lee Iacocca, American automobile executive, said that “You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can’t get them across, your ideas won’t get you anywhere.” In today’s digital world your ideas can spread across the Internet at the speed of light and gets to millions and millions of people within minutes. The more the idea spreads the more it gains power.

(3) Align it to solving a particular human problem: The best ideas are the ones that help people to solve their problems. The simpler the ideas, the better and more useful they’re to the people. Any idea that doesn’t help people solve their problem whether in the present time or in the future neither has power nor relevance. It will fizzle out.

What the client or potential beneficiary is looking for in any idea is what Michael Jeffreys and Joel Weldon call “take-home value”. They describe take-home value as solid, practical, usable information that a person can immediately put to use to improve his personal life, job performance/skills, or overall life experience. So you must answer the question, what specific solution does this idea provide to the people or the marketplace?

(4) Be a great person behind an idea: As we had earlier seen, in itself, particularly in the beginning, no idea may be said to be great or common, useful or useless. It takes our bringing the idea to life to get it running. This implies that the quality of who we’re will determine the value we give to our idea.  

William Feather, American publisher and author writes that, “An idea isn’t worth much until someone with dedication makes it happen.” In this same light, Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, wonders why there’re many people with great ideas but very few people with great amounts of money. His explanation for this is that “it does not take a great idea to become rich but it does take a great person behind the idea to become rich.”

So sharpen your personal values, have the right mindset, a positive attitude, and a broad perspective about life. Have integrity, and be a man or woman of vision, and successful in all the vital areas of life. These are the marks of a great person.

(5) Validate it: Another way of giving force to our ideas is to validate them. How do we do that? It is by gathering and collating as much data as possible to buttress our idea. In the face of preponderance of facts and analytical data, not only is a strong foundation laid but also a credible pattern is established.

(6) Connect it with other ideas: Interdisciplinary approach is very useful and result-producing in terms of new ideas. It involves connecting ideas and concepts across different disciplinary boundaries. For instance, the 4th Industrial Revolution is characterized by a fusion of technologies, and is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological worlds. The advantage man is taking of the interconnectedness of ideas is advancing the world at a terrific rate.

So connect the idea that occurs to you with other ideas and concepts from other fields and you’ll come up with very creative and innovative ideas.

(7) Get started with the idea: In a bid to give wings to your idea, perhaps this is the most crucial part. As Mark Zuckerberg said in his Commencement address at Harvard,Ideas don’t come out fully formed. They only become clear as you work on them. You just have to get started.” He added that if he had to understand everything about connecting people before he began, he never would have started Facebook.

So don’t throw an idea away because you feel that you don’t know everything you need to know about it. As you get started the big picture becomes clearer and clearer along the way. The ultimate of making your ideas astonishingly powerful is to grow, strengthen, and convert them into practical actions that are useful to people. Act now.
