25 Key Points: Key Point 1

(Note: I recently installed a plugin named Old Posts Highlighter for this blog. What the plugin does is to recycle articles based on a schedule I set. I set it to pull blogs older than 2 years. This post/series was originally posted on 8/31/2011. Since the plugin works randomly, it does not post in sequence, so you might want to bookmark this particular post. A few months ago I began working on my passion project CBP using my own book One Hour To Wealth (see the post explaining this here). I knew that I wanted to begin reaching more people to show them what I was able to do to overcome an extreme setback in my life. While I’ve made incredible strides since writing this book, actually using the book will solidify the information I’ve provided. Instead of being motivational, the writing will be considered instructional. All of these ‘Key Points’ make up the end of the book which can be read for free on Kindle with Amazon Prime, or purchased in paperback. Please share this information, retweet and like with a pingback to this site and feel free to comment or ask questions.)
Over the next 25 days I will post a Key Point. Collect them, share them with friends and other people thinking about starting a small business, leave feedback and make sure you give credit. I appreciate you reading. If you’d like to read some of my fiction, got to my Author’s Page to read my bio and pick up a book. Enjoy Point 1.

Key Point 1: Be Creative – There isn’t any such a thing as a stupid idea. If somebody tells you to create a fart catcher, sit down and think about if you can be passionate about it. I’m not kidding. Creativity is the realm of childhood and the dreams that you have when you are young, become the memories that dissipate due to inactivity. People forget how to be creative. Watch your child play with some LEGO Blocks. Children have the knack for creativity and they can sit for hours building bridges and playing in imaginary worlds. When we get older people tell us to stop playing games and get serious. The only thing getting serious does for us is make us overweight, tired, stressed and angry. I challenge you to keep a journal for a month and in that journal write down every odd idea you can think of that you can be passionate about. Write down the ones that you can’t get excited about as well. The goal though is to be creative.
