Almost everybody in the world thinks we must always do and think the conventional way but that doesn’t work for me as a person. I don’t believe that because if you take a careful study of the small percentage of people that are doing well financially and earning cool cash you will find out that they don’t think or do things the conventional way. It is easier to make real money by going against the crowd and seeing or doing things differently from others because to be really rich you must be creative and indeed a great innovator.
Successful entrepreneurs often talk about the struggles they had in their early days, their battles to convince skeptical investors, persuade suppliers, educate customers, and deal with incredulity and apprehension from just about everyone every single step of the way. However, the feeling that you are swimming upstream can be a good thing.
Well to me there should also be more worrying when everyone thinks that your idea is a good one, if you have spotted that lots of people seem to be going in a certain direction, be wary not to jump on the bandwagon, just avoid following them at all cost with the me-too strategy, hoping to emulate their success with only a mindless variation on whatever seems popular at the moment.
Just look back on the dot-com wannabes of only a few years ago, everyone wanted to do something with the internet which is perfectly great but how many of them made money out of it?, some of the big players such as Amazon, Yahoo, eBay, Facebook have thrived, but the guys and girls trying to mimic or copy their success have disappeared without traces. More recent successes as social networking site MySpace and video sharing site YouTube have created new interest in what has been dubbed Web 2.0.
It is time for us all to think outside the crowd if we really want to make money and people will pay us for it. You can’t still keep doing things the same way and be expecting a different result all you need is to change how you think and see things differently from how many others are seeing and surely huge income is coming your way.
Most times the world is full of people who always complain, stop complaining but start looking for a way out. Stop looking at problems but rather start looking for the solutions to those problems and the world will pay you for doing that on their behalf.
