This Is How One Right Idea Can Change Your Life Forever

Remember the times when you got stuck in a problem and find no way out, but suddenly you get some idea after thinking for long and you finally get the impossible solution to tackle that problem? A lot of people ask 'How can I change my life?' and the one simple answer is 'By Thinking' and getting an idea to work on.

Sometimes just one simple thought can shake your thinking process and change the world we live in forever. When an apple fell on Newton's head, instead of throwing it away or eating it, he started thinking about it and then he got the idea of Gravity and that is when the modern era of physics began.

How can we get an idea that can change our life forever?

Nature has been kind with humans and has given them ability to think and change their life on their won. Humans can easily make their own environment while other creatures adapt to environment they are living in. Don't you think we are not using the gift of thinking in right way or to the levels it should be used? The major problem why people lack dreams and innovation is that their thinking is restricted due to daily run of social life where they hardly get time to eat, sleep and spend time with family. Observing minute details of daily life things and calmly thinking about it deeply on a regular basis can strike a tons of ideas in your mind. One of the best example of getting an idea through observation and deep thinking is the story of 'Walt Disney'.

Walt Disney faced many rejections as cartoonist from newspaper editors who said that he did not have any talent. He was broke but one day, a minister at a church hired him to draw some cartoons. Disney was working out of a small rodent-infested shed near the church. He observed a mouse there which gave him an idea to draw a cartoon and today that cartoon is know as Mickey Mouse. That is the moment when revolution in the field of cartoons was made by one simple observation of a broke cartoonist. This idea became so successful that today Disney holds the record for most individual Oscar wins (22) and nominations (59). Now that is how one idea changes your life and revolutionize the world around you.

Here are few more examples of how one idea has changed many lives.

Where do you think the idea of online shopping came from?  The founder of amazon .com was thinking of a business product in context with the growing internet usage around the globe. He says, “It was a hard decision and I was looking for the right frame work in which to make that kind of important decision and the right frame work I found was, the regret minimization framework .So that’s just a nerdy way of saying that you want to  project  yourself to age 80 and then think back on your life  and if you are 81 you want to minimize the number of regrets you have throughout that period of time.It was a great clear way for me to think about making that kind of life decision. I thought if I go do this thing and if I fail, am I going to regret, I knew the answer was, NO but I also knew that if I didn’t try. I would always regret that.”

– Jeff Bezos
