a Book Review of “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill from Strategic Business Stream.com 8/13 enhanced by Peter/CXO Wiz4biz
Lesson 1 (continued) All you need is one good Idea to Succeed
Pitches to Partner-up.
“I have an excellent business idea that will make us a lot of money.”
“My idea is so unique that nobody else knows it.”
“I have just discovered the perfect business opportunity. Will you invest with me?
“I think we should work together, I have tons of business ideas.”
Brilliant Ideas are a Dime a Dozen. While I try my best not to discourage the aspiring entrepreneurs, I do my best to make them realize that the world is filled with brilliant ideas. After all, most caterers & chefs can bake a better Hamburger than Ray Kroc; yet, Ray Kroc became a billionaire with his averagely-baked Burger. If the perfect idea is all it takes to become a billionaire, I expect everyone to hit tremendous success effortlessly.
It’s all about Focus. Now that brings me back to my lesson one that states “All you need is one sound idea to succeed.” This lesson is very important and applicable to our everyday life. Everyday, I come across people bouncing from one business opportunity to another; from one get rich quick scheme to another. I also have friends who spend all their time and resources chasing different investment opportunities. To these set of people, they think their problem lies in the business opportunity and they hope that one day, they will hit the right idea. But I want to say to you that you don’t need multiple ideas to succeed in life; all you need to achieve success is one sound idea. That idea could be a skill you possess or your passion, talent or hobby. Remember that Henry Ford did not become a billionaire with multiple business ideas, neither did John D. Rockefeller. Andrew Carnegie did not pursue several business ideas and opportunities; he focused on steel. Bill Gates & Larry Ellison focused on Software; Carlos Slim focused on Tele-communication & Oprah focused on Entertainment. So if you are going to achieve success or strike it rich in life, then you have to find your passion or a business opportunity you are passionate about promoting and “Focus” on it. Remember, all you need to achieve success is just one sound idea; so be wise and eventually, you’ll be wealthy.
