When I coach with other business owners and people that have ideas I often find reluctance on their part to share those ideas with others. I think this boils down many times to believing that ideas are scarce in this world.
I happen to think that ideas are a dime a dozen. If your big idea is how to make $1,000,000 with a brand new internet program that helps people, then you should tell everyone you know about it. Unless you are willing to share your ideas and let those around you know, how will you ever get the word out?
This can be backwards thinking for many people. “What if someone steals my idea?" I hear that one quite often. I'm sure that your big idea is not the only one out there.
If it is a great idea, then do something with it. Turn it into income. I help people do this each week. You must be willing to share if you want to receive on the other end.
Aren't the people with the most friends the ones who are the friendliest in return? This should be your new way of thinking. Give away whatever you can. For this reason I give away almost everything I do for free on our website. It is also why I train others to do what I do. I routinely field emails and calls from coaches around the country that have questions about a part of their business. If I believed in scarcity instead of abundance, I would never talk to other coaches and counselors. I am not so naive to think however that I am the only one that can help everyone in this world, or even in my own city.
As stated in The One Minute Millionaire , “give your time, your approval, your smile, your advice, your wisdom, your compliments, your sense of humor, your talent, your attention, your encouragement, your love. All these things will flow back to you in abundance. "
