There is nothing called as a great mind. Most of the people who pursue the apex aren’t actually great minds. There are only great ideas. An idea is said to be great because it had the potential to break the daily stereotypes, had the potential to break the comfort zone. We have studied about many great minds like people who said that the earth was flat. There were theories that the earth is the center of the universe. Until someone else had to prove it the otherwise. Great minds change, but great ideas don’t.
We could have been still in the blue about gravity if it wasn’t for Sir Issac Newton who gave it a thought about why the apple fell on his head. We may have been in the blue about electricity if it wasn’t for Nikola tesla, Benjamin Franklin who ideated many important concepts . We have been in the blue about small pox if it wasn’t for Edward Jenner who broke barriers and ideated the vaccine.
People tend to create a virtual barrier among themselves and have the fear to ideate. They think that it’s never been done before, so it can never be done in the future. Remember that many so called great minds were proven wrong. We never know that the greatest minds of today who do research worth millions of dollars might be proven wrong in the future. But that doesn’t stop the process of ideating. It’s taking a leap of positivity and belief everyday. A leap for a better idea. A hope.
So never let your imaginations die within your mind. Try do make something out of your creative side. Take the leap of belief and pursue it. Let it be anything. Nothing can be as right as your thinking. Even the world’s most dangerous people took their leap for a negative cause. Why can’t you do it for one small positive purpose ?
There are no great minds. It’s those little silly ideas which make a difference and become great ideas. As Albert Einstein said “If the idea is not absurd in the beginning, then there’s no hope for it.”
Have a ideated day ahead !
