Well? That was my idea! See the graphic below (opens in a new window).
This is by far one of my most proud achievements in a while, not just because of the recognition, or even that my idea has directly affected millions of people, making their day just a bit easier – although those are really big things…
Big Ideas From Average People
It’s that I was able to show that ordinary, average people like me can have big ideas that affect millions of people and get it out into the world.
How many times have we been told, “That’ll never happen,” or “You can’t do that,” or simply, “That’s impossible“? – Well it’s not!
And I’m proud that I was able to actually show that it is possible and can be done, and all it took was a bit of faith, a bit of action, and persistence.
I’m reminded of an ad that Apple ran several years ago. It’s a quote that I wrote down and held on to:
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
So keep dreaming big dreams, thinking big ideas, and taking massive action. ANYTHING really is … possible!
