They really can see into the future. Not in the fortune teller sort of way, but rather they see trends and ideas years before they come to market.
A $10 Billion Idea
One idea they shared with me around the health business 5 years ago is just now starting to become a hot topic. If someone was to jump into this area of business right now they’d still have many opportunities … yet imagine the person that saw this coming half a decade back…
This lady isn’t a one time wonder – on several occasions now she’s made predictions and they’ve come true.
However there’s a big problem with all of this. All of these ideas remained just that – ideas.
The Missing Ingredient
Without taking action, investigating, developing and implementing these ideas nothing came of them for her. And I can say the same for myself. Five years back when I heard the health business idea, I thought “I think you’re right, that makes sense” but that’s where I left it.
I’m sure there are countless cases like this across the world. If deep down you have an idea or believe in something NOW is the time to act on it.
Sure, all actions involve risks, and when you’re at the front of the curve there is always more risk involved.
Making It Work
That said, no one is twisting your arm forcing you to make a drastic change in your life. You can still keep your job or consulting business going as you pursue your new idea.
As long you’re not scared of tip toeing around late at night to get more work done or setting your alarm to go off a couple of hours earlier each day – you can find plenty of time to work on making your idea a reality.
The most you have to lose if you give it a go is some money and time. And if you go about it the right way, it’ll be mostly time until you prove the potential of your idea.
What You Have To Lose
Far greater is what you have to lose if you don’t give your idea a try. One year or years later you’ll have that nagging feeling of regret, that just doesn’t easily go away, and you’ll be constantly thinking that you should have given it a go and what could have happened if you did.
If you’ve battled the demon of regret from not giving your idea a go or are on the other side and have slayed that beast by taking action I’d love to hear your stories and experiences in the comments below.
