    Hello.

    I am wondering and searching for the key to success. How do you come up with new great ideas? Please tell some stories about your success. I think it would be interesting for everyone here.

    I personally often say to myself:

    "If you only look at what is, you might never attain what could be."

    You can arrive with great ideas if can learn how to open your mind for other people's suggestion. Read a lot of articles, books or even blog post that can arouse your interest. Collect ideas and try to innovate them for your own personal use. And most important... put your money where your mouth is.

    Most people say "Think outside the box" .. But I read somewhere else and said "Stop thinking outside the box, just THINK." Ideas normally comes in your mind when you don't pressure much yourself. Relax and steady your mind and more ideas will get into it. It's more like data refreshing your computer so that it would work faster and more efficient when loaded and running different applications.

    I find creativity happens in two ways. One is when I don't pressure it and things just pop up suddenly. Sometimes it can be while something outside stimulates an idea and sometimes it seems to come from nowhere. The other is when there is a specific problem I have been trying to figure out. Sometimes if I think about it enough I solve it and that leads to an idea. So it can either be sort of unconscious or conscious effort.

    Well most of the time I just get crazy and just doing it because most of the time, I do satisfy myself with the results. But when I do, usually I get ideas in resting (either going to sleep or just sitting with something sweet to eat). Most of the time it's because I like something that generates the theme of my idea.

    I usually can come up with some ideas from my users comments and what others are asking. From them, I elaborate more of the tiniest details and link it to their questions.

    Normally, ideas are everywhere and every time we always comes up with an idea of our own. Maybe the problems of most people is that they do not know how to nourish their own ideas and test it out to know whether it's effective, helpful or not.

    I have some good ideas, but no success at all to brag with. Some ideas need a lot of time, effort and money to realise. Everyone can come up with a great idea, the ability to realise it is what makes success.

    Creativity is always well appreciated in every field in different manners. In business field, it is the way to improve quality and reduce cost to get a competitive edge. Creativity plays a big role in most of the things what you do. Creating a good idea is a divergent thinking which is based on the thing that your mind naturally works that you're being creative and its something you can do intentionally for creating more ideas according to the situation.

    Sometimes, kids are the best way for coming up with new ideas. I came up with 2 little business campaigns by watching my kids play in the park. Result ? Whole families are now making appointments.

    I agree with you, kids have fantastic imaginations and they don't see the same limitations that adults do, hence they see great possibilities and their ideas and dreams are often very creative. What type of business did you develop from that Steward?

    Exactly.

    For instance, I was able to apply one of these ideas on one of my small dental clinics for children. I noticed my little boy talking to a friend and complaining about me not having any playgrounds near the clinic and him being bored when he visits. So, with a little bit of funding and a lot of paperwork, I built a themed playground around the building. The results were astonishing as the playground is free and open whole day. Families started to visit and through feedback I noticed they miss a dental services for adults. One thing led to another and after two years I expanded the building and services. I am still in debt but business-wise, it was worth it and I can only thank to my little boy for it.

    By stopping trying to have good ideas! The best ones seem to come out of nowhere (or is that just me?) M.
