Are you reluctant to pull out your ideas? You think you’d be bereft of them if you do. This I’ve come to realize that your reluctance to bring out your ideas will impede many other great ones from surfacing.
Letting out your ideas will not decrease your intellect; instead, you’ll gain more by doing so. When you let out your ideas, here are some things you stand to gain.
- More beautiful ideas will flow into your brain.
- You would be a master of that idea you expunged, and you’d be able to develop more on it.
- You’d set a pace for yourself to do better subsequently.
- You’d be able to think broader and wider, and, thus, expand your scope.
Holding on to your only idea means you have only one idea in your whole life. It also translates to you not having confidence in yourself.
Think of when you eat. You realize that you have to chew and swallow one food before chewing or swallowing another. Such is the similitude of expending what you have; you’d be able to get another when you pull it out.
If you, however, decide to close your mouth to what’s inside it. What’d you get? You would discover that you’d not be able to take in more food. Such also is when you fail to give out your points.
Imagine if great technological innovators did not bring out their ideas. How would they have expanded those innovations?
Do not belittle your thought process. Allah has made it capable. Let it break free of old ideas and move on to developing more.
A Little Exception
Sometimes, however, there may be the need to save your best points for a more suitable time. If you think that bringing out your ideas at the present time may be a waste, then do something at least: write them down.
After you’ve written down your ideas, then try to evade your thoughts from them. Move on to think further about what’s next.
Make sure you give yourself the room to expand. Do not underestimate yourself. Let your mind expand to think further about how to move ahead. Dish out what you have; more will come, in shaa Allah.
