On Saturday 2nd October 2010, I spoke as the Keynote Speaker at the Golden Key International Honour Society New Member Reception.Golden Key is the world’s premier collegiate honor society, recognizing outstanding academic achievement and connecting high-achieving individuals locally, regionally & globally with lifetime opportunity, reward & success.To capture the celebratory moment of the event, I spoke about three topics that would resonate with the New Members of Golden Key. One of the topics was on the need to treasure and act on our ideas.
Every single second, minute and hour that we live, our brain brings together hunches from many sources, fuelling the conception of small ideas. I call them small, but in all honesty they have the potential of becoming something so large, that it is often unimaginable. How unimaginable? To the extent that an idea has the power to change our life and the lives of many others around us. Every person reading this today would have experienced the sparks of ideas that have led to excitement and inspiration. However, living in the world of 24/7 with so many things that we need to do every day, it can be easy to forget the humble ideas that come to us. Our challengeis to capture these ideas, treasure them and act on them.
On the 10th June 2008, I came up with an idea to write a book. I knew that I wanted to write a motivational and life skills book for teenagers, so that every young person would have the opportunity to find their passions and follow their dreams. The idea was infectious. It took over my whole mind, and it made me get to work. Straight away, I wrote the idea on a piece of paper, and after a month of an inspirational monsoon where I wrote over 140 A4 pages of notes, I told my family. By nurturing this idea, itgrew so large that after two years and 11 major edits I designed and published my book“Teens Big Dreams”in August this year. The journey was probably one of the hardest ones in my life, but what I find even harder to fathom is the possibility of not having acted on the idea. We all know that feeling – the feeling of ‘what if’. It is ultimately up to us to take our ideas and step into the world of creation, because when we do, we are able to tap into an energy that defies all impossibilities – Passion.
So, let’s challenge ourselves to capture our ideas, treasure them and act on them with passion.
I look forward to hearing of all your success.
