Don’t everybody like the smell of gasoline?
Well burn, motherfucka, burn — American Dreams
Don’t everybody like the taste of Apple Pie?
Well snap for your slice of life I’m tellin’ ya why
I hear that Mother Nature now’s on birth control
The coldest pimp be looking for somebody to hold
The highway up to Heaven got a crook on the toll
Youth full of fire ain’t got nowhere to go, nowhere to go

-Andre 3000 (“Gasoline Dreams” – OutKast’s Stankonia)

There’s more business books, theories, principles, facts, opinions, and laws that you can fill your mind with.

Trust me I’m on this track. But I just read a refreshing article that Malcolm Gladwell wrote for

Here it is:

Gladwell on The One Thing

It may sound simple, but it’s not the brains, the money, the resources or power that disrupts or makes a change in the world, or your environment. But it’s the decision to, mean it and drive through it with heart and imagination.

The endurance and persistance of the imagination is the key part, that I could imagine, including myself, have a problem with and I haven’t even been critiqued or released a product or service in the world yet. *Maybe this is why I’m writing to confront this issue. But it’s true, to succeed in the world, it requires two things. Imagination and Heart.

Failure sucks, but instructs. – David Kelly, co founder of IDEO.

If a young child knows he can do anything.

If he knew what you at 25 know (or may not know), the potential would be endless

If you had the attitude of a child your possibilities would be endless.

Children have heart, no matter how blind or ignorant it may seem.

Kids’ body of work is amazing when you think about it.

It’s really when you are told what to do, you stop producing, and become ensconced in the

events of life instead of the activities in life that produce everlasting results.

And look forward to a short-term vacation to remedy your sense of autonomy.

You can‘t do it unless you can imagine it. – George Lucas

No one cares about your handi-cap but you.

No one cares about your trip to a festival.

No one cares about your trip to Paris.

Some may call them inspiration trips, but I don’t buy it.

It doesn’t take much imagination or heart to do these things.

Ignore those blogs and articles that say that you should go travelling to find yourself.

It’s bullshit.

You find yourself by mining the imagination and courage within you.

In the simple things, that you label as boredom.

Yogi’s teach this. It’s nothing new.

Being in the moment, without the help of external things who do not care about you!

It takes courage to create something completely from scratch.

The world rewards these two attributes, but more important of all

It the only reward that you receive and can give instantly.

They start to care.

Politicians know this! It’s the fundamentals of leadership.

It’s not charisma, this is by product of the new found self-confidence of the nuggets of courage and imagination you mind in the process.

These are things that no one can take from you.

To do the thing, you will have the power- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do the courageous thing. It doesn’t take courage to goto France and visit for 2-3 weeks.

To each is own, but chances are you come back and work the same job that you that you left with.

Not courageous or imaginative at all.

Do the thing that is seems impossible.

Even if you don’t achieve it. You will have the power to achieve something of just as much importance.

It’s like hitting the gym and taking on new weight. It takes courage to challenge yourself.

You’re disrupting your body, to grow!

You’ll be able to deliver strength and confidence with everyday things.

People or may not notice, in this case, it’s not the point. You’ll be able to deliver when it counts.

Avoid the gloss and get dirty in the obscure, you’ll be respected for it. I guarantee it.

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life – Muhammad Ali, World’s Greatest Boxer

Earth Travel is not unknown.

Playing beer league is not unknown.

Your job is probably not unknown.

Making copious amounts of money

It’s been done before.

The courage to imagine

The imagination to be courageous is what creates genuine greatness in the world

Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality. – Jonas Salk
