I’m reading this great book right now (just started it) called ‘Anything You Want’.
I actually met the author Derek Sivers in person many years ago, he was visiting London and wanted to meet his customers, so I arranged a venue for that to happen (which was my local pub :D).
Little did I know that this cool laid back super humble guy I was chatting to and having a pint with, would a few years later, sell his company for $22 million.
He still remembers me to this day and thanks me for arranging the pub meet up. I’m still wowed by his humility and being super down to earth – which are clearly some of the major reasons for his success.
The chapter I’m on right now is called “Start now. No funding needed”. He talks about how your vision and dream in the future starts with helping just ONE person today who needs your kind of help, or your kind of solution.
And by doing so, you’re already way ahead of the game of all the daydreamers and hopefuls and wishful thinkers who dream and talk about what they’re going to do, but aren’t actually doing anything to start it.
Whatever your dream is, just start, and help one person at a time, and let your solution and work speak for itself for the momentum to grow.
Does it help people or make them happy?
If your idea genuinely helps people and makes them happy, before long you won’t have to try hard, momentum will build and the people you’re helping and making happy with your product/service/solution will be the ones growing it for you, by being your biggest fans and evangelists.
So that’s what I’ve learned and wanted to share with you today – all new ideas start off small, they become big and successful, when you help someone, and grow it from there.
So on that note, I want to remind you that I’m here for you. If I’m helping you by inspiring, encouraging and lifting you up with my blogs – that’s great!
