Thought of the Day for January 29th - Use a little Original Thinking
This article from a series of inspirational thoughts by Peter B. Giblett encourages you to do some original thinking.
One thing this writer has noticed over the years is that many people define themselves through the quotations of others. There is a time and a place for listening and learning from others but there is also a time to originate something yourself.
One thing about ideas is that once let free they will roam the human conciousness and be available to all who wish to use it, modify it, oppose it, etc. Some ideas achieve instant greatness, others need work; but anyone can create a fresh, new idea. One of the key ways is to look at something that needs improving in your life and focus on finding a better way. The new idea may not come instantly, but it will come if you give yourself the freedom of expressing your thoughts and ideas.
You do not have to look for a guru to lead you; it is your turn to take charge and give inspiration to others. The world is made better by those who stand up and say "I think we should do...". Over the next few days it is your opportunity to do some original thinking and say "I think we should...". The power of your idea will be boosted with additional research when you are presenting it to others.
You will thank yourself later.
