New Ideas Don’t Exist, but Here’s How to Still Succeed in Business


One of the most difficult things to fully grasp is the concept of ideas. Ideas are, after all, the building blocks on which our society is built. We use ideas to create new technology, to form new laws and to make living more comfortable. This gives them an unparalleled importance in our way of life. We need ideas to grow as people, but most importantly we need good ideas to grow mankind. 

Fortunately, your ideas don’t need to save the human race or create a new kind of technology that will benefit the world, but it’s important to remember that no idea is ever original. Yes, new ideas are a myth and anyone that says “I’ve got a new idea” is lying to you. The fact is; there is no way for us human begins to formulate an idea that is completely new. This is because we take whatever is in our minds (as in, things that we have seen or experienced before) and we spin them, combine them and transform them into something different.

This essentially means that none of our ideas are ever new because they’re just combinations of existing ones. Once you grasp this and fully understand what this means, it makes running a business a whole lot easier. 

Inspiration Is The Key To Generating A Successful Startup 

Since we can’t shape a new idea out of thin air, we have to fill our heads with as many existing ideas as we can. This involves inspiration, study and a lot of brainstorming. This is why it’s important to do a lot of reading when you want to start a business—because it ultimately shapes the kind of ideas that are in your head and gives you a good starting point for your own business. 

One of the best ways to inspire yourself is to read about other successful corporate leaders and entrepreneurs such as Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Moshe Kantor and Steve Jobs. These people have biographies, articles written about them, social media accounts and plenty of coverage in the news, making it fairly easy to learn from them. Read what made them successful, and learn how they would’ve done things differently given modern advancements and changes in society. 

Reading is one of the best ways to inspire yourself, but watching videos and listening to music can also fill you with wonderful new concepts and ideas that can be merged together to create something new and beautiful. In short, make sure you expose yourself to as many different forms of media as possible, and try your best to learn something new every day so that you’ll eventually collect all these little ideas and merge them into a single, unique idea that you can make a business from. 

Summary 

In order to grow your business (especially with little capital), you’ll need to develop ideas that are sound, strong and attractive to consumers. Failing this, you’ll be lost in a sea of businesses that are all trying to do the same thing and target the same markets. Without fresh ideas, you’ll be doomed to fail.
