They say Rome was not built in a day. The actual number of days was closer to 1,009,491(Geshner). This should not discourage today’s innovative minds. Much like the countless groups of workers who contributed their skills and labors to the construction of the great city, there is a team out there who can provide guidance and skills to those who seek to manifest their ideas into reality.
The Winning Team:
The first leap taken on the road of development is the scariest because it is the leap of faith. What if this person does not like my idea? Have I gone about this the wrong way? Will they laugh or criticize me? The answer is “No”. There is no such thing as a bad idea. The right team listens and understands your wants and needs. They begin to assemble their resources, pulling together the materials you’ll need to build your empire and turn your idea/concept in to a steady cash flow stream.
Slowly, a process is built and you see the blue prints unfold in front of you. There are obstacles and steps that will be undergone and slowly you see that the team will grow under you.
Counting the Days:
Although it may feel like it at times, your dream is not a million days away. Each stage has obstacles that need to be conquered from the patent office to the manufacturer agreements, from the attorney’s office to the store front. Soon the rewards become apparent. The patent gets approved, the prototype is built, the test group gives a positive review, and the dream slowly transforms in to a reality.
The American Dream:
Maurice Saatchi once said, “America was born out of a desire for self-determination, a longing for the human dignity that only independence can bring.” The Promethean mind is one that holds this desire and achieves said independence through innovation and creativity. Once your Rome is built, behold your city and reap the rewards which are produced: a sense of accomplishment, a reoccurring cash flow to sustain your lifestyle, and the human dignity.
