During my life I have seen hundreds of peoples and there are millions of peoples in this world who have expertise, knowledge, skills and talent but unable to generate ideas which can create a business for them, make them their own boss, give them freedom from working for someone else, make them money and make their life financially stress free and help the world.
Reasons Why People Don’t Share Startup Ideas
Unable to Generate Ideas
In daily life routine peoples have trapped themselves in so many family, emotional, job problems and life’s basic necessities that their mind is almost all the time revolving around such problems and small matters, keeping them busy and wasting their energy and skills.
Feeling Depressed and Discontented
No matter what your current situation is, no matter hows your life going, staying contented and thankful all the time will bring improvement and success in your life. You see several peoples even in your friend circle, colleagues, neighbors, relatives and even other peoples around you who despite of being successful or even having every facilities and blessings still thinking about small problems, degrading themselves, feeling depressed by either comparing with others or just creating negative thoughts and negative energy in themselves, hence unable to think beyond that look for the the better opportunities think at big scale.
Insecurity of Cheating and Low Share in Return
Insecurity of cheating and low share in return. Where there are good cooperative founders, investors, partners in start of the startup at the same time there are founders cum investors who have cunning thoughts of overtaking the partner either by cheating, discouraging, underestimating. Not all founders are same but still due to such insecurity peoples avoid sharing ideas.
Insecurity of Idea get stolen. It’s true that just an idea without implementation is just a dream and you might be the better and core person for the better execution and completion of your idea but still there is a doubt of what if the idea get stolen, hence better to keep it secret.
Insecurity of rejections and other peoples, other peoples first, the most common viral problem in the current society. There are several talented minds who are still affected by these negative mental perceptions i.e. what people will think? Is my idea valid? What if people will make fun and laugh? Will my idea get rejected?
Job Pressure, Dirty Revenge and Victimization at Workplace
Not all the time at every workplace but Yes, practical, experienced and realistic. There are several times such incidents have happened. The moment you start discussing, brainstorming your ideas, share your creativity, the negative vibes of colleagues, workplace start attracting you in the shape of keeping you busy by giving over and extra workloads, overtime shifts, un-necessary insults and taunts, backbiting, anger which affect your creativity. Hence better to not share with irrelevant peoples at irrelevant place and before suitable time.
02 Ways to Generate Startup Ideas
I am also a common person like you, even many of you might be more capable, intellectual than me so, if I can generate and get startup ideas then why not you guys can do, even you can do better than me. Who knows after reading this motivational article your hidden talent can come forward and you start working on that and bring better change. You may follow the same procedures that I do.
Here meeting people does not necessarily mean to enjoy and have fun with your friends, colleagues and just waste your time. I meet, interact with people from every walk of life; listen to them, discuss with them, their problems, the difficulties they face during their jobs, business or even during their daily life. I discuss with them how do they solve, whats the current solution they are availing or available whether beneficial completely or not. I watch and listen to the problems which then knock the doors of my mind to generate opportunities through a solution.
Observance, Creative & Critical Thinking
Don’t waste your all the time in just listening music, watching movies until and unless you don’t achieve fruitful outcome. Don’t be the complaining person of the society and system who just complain, feel and spread negative vibes. Be the person who can contribute, guide for betterment. Observe society, the systems from transport to logistics, education to construction etc believe me, there are thousands of problems which can solved and simplified through great minds, ideas, technology and solutions.
Whenever I visit any office, place, travel; come across to any process, system even while sitting in toilet or taking bath, I do my critical thinking and analysis for the possibilities on the basis of 5W1H. Instead of talking useless and wasting time, I ask myself some questions such as what can be done to make it better? What opportunities including employment can be created if such problems are solved? Why something is still being done manually or in a hectic way? How technology can make it better instead of manual hectic? How and what manual steps can be reduced to make the process efficient? The feelings of doing and keeping the brain busy in such analysis are contented.
Watch out for the manual, hectic, and tedious in between hurdles and dependencies and then think about the replacement through technology and automation. I have seen tons of manual, useless dependencies and manual processes which take days to months though they can be reduced to seconds and minutes through simple technology.
It is true that an idea without implementation is just a dream but generating an idea and then structure it in a semantic way for better execution are also good efforts.
Reasons Why I Share Ideas
Whether it be any startup idea mobile, web based or youtube video ideas, several people ask me that why do you share startup ideas? Some ask because of their curiosity, willingness to know; some ask to taunt, laugh at me and my ideas; and claim in a grumpy way that if such ideas may worth millions then why would someone be sharing for free and openly or why not you just make them and become rich by yourself, quickly or get quick rich overnight. So, instead of answering them individually, I decided that through this article all their doubts, curiosity whether negative or positive can be answered, all together and at once.
Too Many Ideas to Be Implemented By A Single Person
You might be thinking why not I just implement these ideas and become rich, why do I have to share them? well the answers are simple, I get so many ideas that it is not possible for me as a single person or two to implement and manage all of them from development to marketing etc. What is the benefit of thinking about solutions if you are unable to implement them, I don’t want to be called a dreamer whole life, so, it’s better to keep things distributed, moving and feel the happiness of ideas getting implemented. If I can’t implement the ideas, better to share the idea.
Sharing is Caring
If I am blessed with such qualities then why not just share knowledge, ideas with other peoples and society. I believe, the solutions of problems and creation of opportunities are more important. It’s better to share the knowledge with the world, guide others, help the world instead of being greedy, limiting knowledge to yourself and then die. After-all sharing is caring and the blessings of returning back to society and people are enormous, at-least the humanity will be benefited.
If I will neither implement nor share, someone else will one day able to generate idea and solve the problems because I am not the only person who can generate the idea to solve the specific problem. There are millions of problems and millions of survivors similarly anyone can either stand from the survivors or the one who will notice and work on that. So, it’s better to get the happiness and blessings of sharing than to regret.
Better Implementation of Raw Ideas
There is always a space of improvement and betterment. Keeping that in mind, I share many ideas which may not be fully mature from each and every perspective, I may not have the deep insights about the industry to which the startup idea belong or the pros and cons of the idea but still I share whatever I think may be possible or could improve the system and society positively. Who knows, there might be thousands of industry experts, wannapreneur, students who can improve or polish that raw idea and implement it which in return solve problems of thousands of peoples. Who knows there might be millions of peoples desperately waiting or dreaming for such idea to be implemented or existed in real life. It’s really hard to know and realize all the problems of millions of peoples. So instead of thinking and asking too much, wasting time in ambiguity, I just share the idea and leave it open to all the genius, creative minds all around the world. There might be possibility that a small seed level concept of idea can be reason of some other big and creative startup ideas which can help to millions of peoples and bring millions of opportunities, create new industries and revolutionize the world. Possibilities can be endless. It might be possible that your raw idea can become a single dot of someone’s connecting dots.
