The only thing I like more than coming up with ideas is sharing them with others.
I find that when I share them with the right person, they get inspired as well, and it fires both of us up.
But on the other side, sometimes I share an idea and someone will respond “Okay, so what’s in it for me?”
Immediately my energy level comes down. I don’t have as much excitement.
Part of me thinks – they just don’t get it.
But a bigger part of me is disappointed.
To me its scarcity versus abundance.
When you say “What’s in it for me” you are thinking scarcity – there is not enough to go around so you have to focus on yourself.
When you think abundance, you are thinking – lets go harvest the fruit so that we can continue to build a bigger farm. You realize that the possibilities are endless.
I try to surround myself with people that help others and that are in a positive mood. It tends to rub off, and I want some more of that hypeness!
