S.E.C. Education: A Powerful Idea

“The wisdom of the ages tells us that learning is a lifelong adventure; that we learn best when we learn from each other; that effective learning only takes place when the mind is open to creative thought; that intellectual curiosity is the best motivation for learning and that Powerful Ideas are the net result of the desire to achieve what others say can’t be done.”

Where do “Powerful Ideas” come from? Are they a result of some mystical experience where you wake up one morning and say “Eureka!” and there it is, a powerful idea? Or, are powerful ideas the result of the learning, knowledge, and wisdom acquired by your life experiences?

I prefer to think that powerful ideas are generated by a creative, open mind … a mind that recognizes opportunity and acts … a mind that seeks out new knowledge for knowledge’s sake never knowing when you might use that something new you learned on your journey. Powerful ideas are the result of intellectual curiosity and a mindset that sees the potential for success and measures the risk of failure. Powerful ideas are part of the sum total of who you are and the belief system you trust to lead you life.

So, how do you find powerful ideas? The first step is taking the journey called life-long education. Powerful ideas come from a variety of places but are almost always the result of a “teachable moment” … that fleeting moment when a friend shares a thought or an experience … when an instructor shares a formula or some tidbit of knowledge that rings your bell. Powerful ideas are stored in your subconscious mind waiting for that moment when you are just sittin’ around thinking about a particular challenge or project.

Powerful ideas come from being mentally, physically, and emotionally prepared to accept the idea when it surfaces. They are the direct result of having a positive mental attitude all the time. They come from having goals … clear, concise, written goals.

There is an old saying I like that says it all … “If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.” Powerful ideas will come, but only if you are prepared to welcome them into your life.

So what do you do when you have a powerful idea? Well, you do something about it. You act!

First, let your powerful idea sort of percolate for a while to see if it has traction. Next, champion your powerful idea with the passion to take it to the next level … wherever that may lead. Remember, powerful ideas are often scoffed at and rejected before applying the creative energy to think the idea through to some logical conclusion.

Powerful ideas need discussion … and brainstorming … and positive thinking in order to survive. Don’t let the naysayers convince you that your powerful idea is wrong, or not feasible, or crazy. Determine the outcome your self through facts and logic. Understand that there are negative people who live to see others fail and cut them out of your life
