The Most Powerful Force In The Universe Is A Human Thought

Yes, there are other natural forces that exert great power.

The sun’s nuclear furnace pumps out unimaginable amounts of energy every second. The green fuse of a plant is powerful enough to crack rock in an attempt to get to some of that energy. The water that gently nourishes that plant can also, over time, wear down mountains.

Yet, all of this power pales in comparison to the potential contained in human thought.

Why?

Only a human thought has the power to alter reality, change history and make a difference in other people’s lives.

Section 1: The Power of Ideas
08:20

The Universe Is An Unimaginably Vast Place

Yet, as far as we know, we are the only thing in that huge space that is capable of realizing that fact. There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches in the world.

However, none of those stars, or the planets that whirl around them, is aware of their place in the cosmos or struggle to understand that place better.

Likewise, none of the uncountable atomic and subatomic particles that comprise the fabric of the universe are capable of consciously looking at their role in the grand scheme of things and asking “Why?”

02:50

One Of The Strongest Powers Ideas Possess Is Their Ability As A Solvent.

You see, ideas have a tendency to dissolve the boundaries that compartmentalize useful bits of information. When these boundaries dissolve, connections are made between observable phenomena that initially seemed unrelated.

It’s these types of connections that are the real game-changers.

03:00

We live in a time where we have realized that many of the resources, as well as the lifestyles that depend upon them, are finite. There are only so many sources of fossil fuels in the world.

While increased technological ability allows for the extraction of coal, oil and natural gas from formerly inaccessible areas, these increased abilities are only prolonging the inevitable.

Fossil fuel deposits will begin to run out, prices for these fuels will rise catastrophically. By that point, we will either have changed our dependence on fossil fuels to power our civilization or chaos will reign.

The point is, despite our critical need for them, fossil fuels are a finite resource.

02:40

Your Ideas Are Born Out Of Curiosity

The desire to know the world as it truly is, to dispel darkness, ignorance and superstition is where ideation begins. This means that the power of ideas relies directly on not accepting the world at face value.

History is littered with examples of accepted knowledge that were overthrown by new ideas. This paradigm shifting is what makes ideas such agents of change.

By their very nature, new ideas replace the old ideas that preceded them.


02:54

When neurologists need an image that describes the neural activity that occurs in the brain during the process of rational thinking, they often talk about a pattern that’s described as a “web of light”.

Now, this doesn’t mean the inside of your skull is really being illuminated by your thoughts, although that might be an apt metaphor for what is actually going on.

The web of light refers to the millions upon millions of neural connections that are being made each and every time you think. If each of these connections were represented by a point of light, the result would be a glowing, shifting tapestry – a visual representation of your thoughts.

Now you know why ideas are so powerful and also why you should be generating as many concepts, ideas and “Aha” moments as you can.

It’s Time to Get Hands-On!

With a bit of practice, you too can mold yourself into a top idea generator. Download the supplied “Idea Generation Worksheet” and use it to start awakening your creative eye.

01:49

And That Concludes - The Power of Ideas Section

Great work!

It should now be clear to you why ideas are so powerful and also why you should be generating as many concepts, ideas and “Aha” moments as you can.

Let’s now take a quick recap of what you learned so far - then you can move on to the meat of our subject, the Generating Great Ideas section, where you’ll learn ten solid tips and techniques you can start using today, to begin generating game-changing ideas.

Section 2: Generating Great Ideas
05:31

Now that you know a bit about how ideation came about, as well as the power of ideas themselves, it’s time to turn to the meat of our subject – generating great ideas.

It’s all well and good to talk about the power of ideas in theory.

However, without the practical knowledge of how to begin to develop great ideas, all you are left with is an ideology. This section of the course is all about getting practical.

Your going to learn ten solid tips and techniques you can start to use today to begin generating the game-changing ideas that will change your life and business forever.

02:32

Ideation Is All About Giving Yourself The Permission To Be Creative

You need to make the necessary space in your life before imaginative, inspired and ingenious thoughts will begin to take root. This begins by freeing your mind from preconceptions and mechanical ways of thinking about the world and your place in it.

To be creative, you first need to be open to the potential that new thoughts and outlooks represent.

02:49

Ok, hopefully by now you are starting to free your mind from mechanical ways of thinking about the world.

You are giving yourself the permission to be creative and you are also opening yourself up to new ways of thinking. And now we come to the big question “When is the best time to start generating new ideas?

02:44

Have you ever noticed that some of your greatest ideas or your best creative thinking happens when you are in the shower? It’s no fluke that ideas happen when you’re showering.

In fact, science has an answer to explain this phenomenon.

02:43

Napping would seem to be a counterproductive behavior when it comes to creativity and ideation. Surprisingly, the opposite is true.

Napping for a short period in the afternoon can refresh you, rejuvenate you and return you to a more alert and creative state. Even more, napping provides you with several specific and important benefits.

02:33

The Process Of Ideation Is A Numbers Game

You have to be prepared to have a whole lot of bad ideas before you have a good idea. The trick is to keep the process going through the bad so that you eventually reach the good.

It’s a little like digging through the trash for a precious stone. A lot of time will be spent in contact with some useless and downright unpleasant things before you find what you are looking for.

02:32

Don’t make the same mistake many people make when trying to become more creative, by giving up or deceiving yourself into believing you don’t have the talent to create.

All Humans are creative by nature, we are all remarkable brainstorming Beings. Most people are just not aware of their own ability or have somehow misplaced and forget the endless wonder we all have for the world, as a small child.

02:39

Have you ever been in this situation?

You’re in the shower, you’re in your car, you wake up at night, and you have an earth-shattering idea. You struggle to remember the details of this breakthrough as you search for some way to record your moment of genius.

All too often the detail of your “aha” moments are lost simply because you didn’t have a quick way to memorize the details of your thoughts. In the end, the moment and the opportunity are lost. It doesn’t have to be this way.

02:37

Do Ideas Occur In A Vacuum?

No, of course, they don’t.

Ideas are organic concepts that are directly related to how you live your life. How many game-changing ideas does a hermit have? You already know the answer.

To change the world, you have to know the world, and the only real way to know the world is through experience. That’s why living is so important to creativity and ideation.

02:44

It’s Not Easy Being Creative

Yet, it’s not that hard either.

You don’t have to be especially gifted to come up with brilliant concepts. You certainly don’t have to be a genius either. Anyone can have a great, game-changing idea if they are willing to put in the work needed to arrive at that point.

You see, great ideas come from practice and persistence, not from talent. If you’re willing to do the work, the odds are that you will become better at coming up with ideas.

The more you come up with ideas, the greater the chance that you will have an absolutely killer idea.

3 pages

Now you know some useful tips and techniques you can start using today to begin generating game-changing ideas – it’s time to get your creative juices flowing.

1 page

Let’s begin by gathering all the related and relevant information you can, about your initial idea. Download the supplied “Idea Inventory Worksheet” and use it to build up an inventory of all the skills, resources, and contacts you can use.

02:00

Excellent - You Made It To The End Of The Generating Great Ideas Section

By now you should have a firm understanding of not only why ideas are so powerful, but also how you can start Generating Game-Changing Ideas yourself.

Let’s take a quick recap of what you learned in this section - and then you can move on to the last section called, What Now? Where you’ll learn, what to do once you have a great idea firmly established in your mind.

You’re also going to discover how to capitalize best on your newly found creative genius.

Section 3: What Now?
04:48

So here you are. You understand the power of great ideas, and you have followed the tips and techniques to maximize your idea generation power. The result is you’ve had a super, game-changing idea.

Now you’ve had that one idea in ten thousand, or one hundred thousand, what’s the next step?

How do you capitalize on your creative genius?

This section is going to deal with that question.

02:27

Ideas that are new often seem strange to people who have no direct experience as to how this particular concept could change their lives for the better.

Therefore, it is up to you, as the originator of the idea, to educate the people who don’t share your vision.

Don’t expect that other people will “get” your concept simply because you understand and believe in what you’re doing. Educate your audience. Tell them in no uncertain terms how your idea benefits them.

02:34

Life Is A Risk

You could walk out the door this morning and, well you know the rest.

The problem is that while we, by necessity, take this risk for granted, it still exists despite our state or quality of being. What we do have, is the ability to minimize the risks that life holds by altering our behavior.

However, in the end, life remains a game of chance no matter what we do.

02:38

So, You’ve Worked Hard At Generating Ideas

You’ve done all the right steps. You’ve kept yourself open and creative. You’ve taken a shower. You’ve taken a nap. You’ve gone out of your way to expose yourself to new concepts, people, and cultures. You’ve come up with and thrown out a million bad ideas.

Now, after all, that work, you’ve had a great idea. I mean this idea is solid gold. It’s original. It’s practical, and it solves a problem that a lot of people are experiencing. It's that game changing idea you’ve been waiting for.

Now, how do you take this idea and make it reality?

02:50

Once you have that great idea and have successfully implemented it, your job is done, right?

Wrong!

All human ideas are a part of one great continuum. They are all interrelated and, in many cases, one new idea is built on the backs of ideas that came before. This means you should have an obligation to constantly try and improve upon your idea.

As the saying goes, “There is always room for improvement.” Additionally, improving upon your initial idea, reconceiving or re-conceptualizing it, allows your idea to grow and change with the times.

The lifespan and usefulness of the idea become greater, as does its overall impact.

03:17

We are the only creature on this planet that thinks, plans and takes action based upon those thoughts and plans. Of course, some animals are capable of problem-solving.

Rats and mice can be taught to run a maze or perform simple actions. Dogs intuitively react to our voices, gestures, and facial expressions. They can use this intuition to perform more complex actions.

Apes can learn how to draw simple pictures, as well as to recognize words and use them to communicate simple concepts. However, mankind is the only creature that actually uses the power of thought to change the world.

Congratulations Are In Order, You Made It To The End Of What Now?

The third and final Section in this course.

Great work!

We may have come to the end of the course, but your dance with creativity will last a lifetime if you wish it too. Let’s take a quick recap of what you learned in this last section:

10 pages

Congratulations On Making It to The Last Assignment! Out of all the assignments and tasks, this is probably the most important one. Without taking the necessary steps to bring your idea to life, no matter how game-changing or world-shaping it may be, then it remains just that – “an idea.”

02:22

We’ve now come to the end of our journey through the wonderful creative process of idea generation.

By now, the cogs of creativity should be turning in your brain. You should have a good idea of what goes into the process of coming up with seriously astounding ideas – the kind that have the potential to change the way we live.

We started by taking a look at the power of ideas. We learned how ideas and intelligence are connected, and some of the specific effects powerful ideas can have in the world.

Next, we looked at the process of generating ideas. We focused on several specific tips and techniques you can use, every day, to exercise your creative muscle and come up with better and better ideas of your own.

Finally, we examined what you should do when you have a great idea in order to bring the ideation process to its logical conclusion.

Now, the time has come to put all this information into practice!

Use this handy Checklist to review the key concepts from “How To Think and Grow Great Ideas Fast” and to refer to whenever you need a refresher.

Section 4: Extra Section : Ideas That Changed the World
02:57

Did you know as far as we are aware, only Humans are capable of rational thought? All around you right now, is tangible evidence of one of the by-products of that rational thought – ideas

Ideas acted on help shape the world. Take a look around you, everything you see, everything you touch, is a direct result of an idea. Human ingenuity and ideation have changed the world, for better or for worse.

Even as you read these words, this change continues to occur.

Every day, new ideas are born.

02:57

The ability to control and use fire was probably one of humankind’s first big breakthroughs, idea-wise. In a very real sense, fire made every other idea possible.

One of the first documented uses of fire was over 500,000 years ago, in ancient China.

However, many researchers speculate that early inhabitants of Africa may have even harnessed the power of fire before that, and believe people of this region used fire almost 800,000 years ago.

02:59

The ability to speak comes right behind fire in terms of idea importance. Both are considered to be the cornerstones of the development of civilizations.

Language gave us the ability, for the first time, to share concepts and personal knowledge with each other. What one person experienced could now be communicated to everyone else.

  • Dangers could be avoided
  • Benefits could be exploited
  • Ideas could be explained and spread
02:47

This is a big and powerful idea. Agriculture has not only changed the way people lived, but it's also changed the face of the earth and the creatures and plants that dwell on it.

Before the development of agriculture, man was a hunter-gatherer. We lived in small groups, always moving from place to place in search of food. One day there might be a bounty of beautiful things to eat, and the next day could bring nothing.

It was an uncertain existence.

03:02

The development of the wheel has been hallmarked as one of the greatest ideas in the history of human development. Before the invention of the wheel, we were limited to transporting whatever we could carry.

For civilizations that were dependent on agriculture, this meant that limited amounts of grain could be moved to processing, and onwards down the chain.

Similarly, trade was limited to movement on the water or again, literally on the backs of people.

02:55

Writing Is An Example Of Symbolic Communication

It was an inevitable development once we all had enough surpluses of goods that we had to keep track of it all, and since language was used to communicate, it was a natural way to record information.

The first writing was likely related to commerce.

02:41

Metalworking Is An Example Of The Alchemical Nature Of Great Ideas

The development of using metal to make new items led to new developments in building structures, a faster way to produce tools, and the discoveries of more modern forms of weaponry.

Inhabitants of the Middle East were attracted to float deposits of copper. (A float deposit is naturally occurring pure copper, as opposed to ore.) The metal was beautiful to look at and easy to fashion into weapons, jewelry and more.

03:09

The Invention Of Writing Led To The Development Of Books

The first books were simply collections of sometimes separate documents bound together for protection. These were typically written by hand and on forms of parchment or paper.

The problem was these early books took an incredibly long time to make, were expensive to produce and could be difficult to store. Therefore, only the wealthy could afford them. This, in turn, meant that only the elites and the rich were literate.

The result was the knowledge accumulated in books was only accessible, to a very few people.

02:51

With all the available artificial light that we have, it’s hard to imagine our ancestors lived in a much darker world. For the average person, the day began with sunrise and ended with sunset. Nighttime illumination was limited in the extreme.

With the harnessing of fire, eventually candles and lanterns were available, but their cost prevented routine use by all but the very wealthy. People generally went to bed when the sun set.

This meant there was very little time for relaxation since daylight was used primarily for working.

02:37

Before planes were developed, we began forming ideas about how to recreate the soaring activity of birds. The development of objects like throwing spears and boomerangs showed a fascination with making things move through the air and helped us to understand aerodynamics.

03:03

For most of history, effective communication depended on geographic location. If a person was standing next to you, communication was quick, easy and efficient. If a person was on the other side of the globe, the opposite held true; communication was slow, difficult and extremely inefficient.

03:06

This is the nature of game-changing ideas. They are developed, executed and change the existing paradigm completely. The old way is quickly forgotten and what was new quickly becomes so essential, such a part of the fabric of society, it becomes commonplace. However, the engine of change continues fiercely on, fueled by the power of ideation.

Section 6: Bonus Audio : Increasing Your Creativity (MP3)
02:18

Before you can work on taking steps to increase your creativity, you need to understand just what creativity is.

02:11

Anyone can be creative and this doesn't have to involve painting a beautiful picture or writing a novel. Instead, what it does involve is a shift in the way you look at things, and a change in your thought process.

02:18

One of the biggest problems when you are trying to be creative is that you are just thinking too much.

02:36

One of the biggest hurdles to creativity is your mindset. It has been shown that negative people are less creative and this is because they just have too many things that bother them.

02:16

Most people think that creativity is a personality trait. It shows up in certain people who have a talent for writing songs, music, books and for developing new inventions. Truth is that this is a misconception and almost anyone can develop and improve their own creativity.

02:22

Do you know what makes you more creative on some days as opposed to other days? Actually this can be difficult to determine.

02:11

Do you currently participate in any type of hobby? Having some type of interest or hobby can be the perfect way to stimulate your brain and increase your creativity.

02:10

Brainstorming is usually applied to a group of people who are looking for solutions to a specific problem.

02:09

Do you find that you daydream very much or not? Research has shown that daydreaming can actually help improve your creativity.

02:16

If you are looking for ways to improve your creativity and thinking powers, then you should consider using mind or brain games.
