Many of us lack confidence in our own ideas. We’re afraid to raise our hand or put anything on the table, because we’re scared of looking stupid. But the truth is, our world is just a puzzle of ideas. Our systems, functions, processes are all ideas. And the only way they become our reality is when people are brave enough to share them. Sure, some ideas need refining and tuning. But an idea is an idea. They’re all cloaked in impossibility and impracticality. Strip away those fears. If others can do it, so can you. The value of an idea lies in the using of it.
Let’s not wait for someone else to notice, to initiate, to fuel. Let’s not be afraid to be that somebody who makes that change. Let’s not feel powerless, because there is always a way to start something, to add something, to be something. We are no less capable, confident or prepared than any other. Our act might seem simple and insignificant, but that is how any change starts: with a question, with an appeal for help, with a shift in our own perspective, with an idea, with a calling out of another, with time. I always wondered why somebody didn’t do something about that. Then I realised, I am somebody.
