With all the brilliant ideas we all claim to have everyday. With all the thoughts that we know are great ideas. What do we do with the vast majority of them. I’ve had an issue with squandered thoughts, I waste plenty of thoughts…simply thinking more. Stacking more thoughts on top of more thoughts. Until some of those great ideas are buried under countless amounts of thoughts that followed.
What I’ve begin to realize is that every person has great ideas, every person has great thoughts and concepts (relatively speaking of course, we all have opinions which are not highly regarded).
What sets us apart as people, as humans, as greats, as people who may be known for something, is the ability to act upon those thoughts.
True talent, is the ability to turn thoughts into action. To actually conceptualize and visualize something in your mind, and make that concept and thought a reality for others. Not simply for yourself. But the ability to turn thoughts into action, and further more action into progress upon the original thought.
Most ideas are wasted, and mumbled in a tight circle among friends, never to be acted on again. Even more thoughts are squandered and lost in the tomb of the mind, never to be dug up. But when an individual refuses to let a thought die, and takes an idea into the realm of actual possibility, and some action is taken place…now that’s talent. That’s what we’re known for, and that’s what defines us.
Strong thoughts motivate and demand action, the rest go squandered and unknown, oblivious to the rest of humanity.
