Quote #446, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here's Blog Quote #446...

"Believe in what you do. Because, you may have to do it for a long time, before it catches on.
-Seth Godin-

For those of you unfamiliar with Mr Godin, he is a marketing guru/genius. I'm not certain who coined the phrase 'out of the box thinking,' but whenever I hear it, I think of Seth Godin.

The brilliance of this quote is that it is so SIMPLISTIC. Yet, it is SO TRUE.

How many people have a good concept or superb idea and, have the guts to go for it and come charging out of the gate, like a quarterhorse? First, lets note: good for them to GO FOR IT. There are many a worthy idea, thought up in the shower, that sadly, never leave the bathroom.

What these quarterhorses forgot or misjudged, is that it's a mile long race. This might be a shocker.. but not everyone else, at least initially, is as excited about your idea as you are.

That doesn't mean it's not going to be a great success. As Godin suggests---it just might take a long time. Give it some perseverance, some nurturing, and plenty of attention. Share it with as many as you can, until you get to where you want to be. That is normally the difference between making it a success and just another idea that didn't get enough time to germinate.

To borrow from the great Napoleon Hill.... Concieve, believe, and achieve , and(I add) you will not BEREAVE!

That's my view...what say you?
