Which is the richest place in the world?

Where do you find ideas worth billions of dollars, lying at a place but unfortunately can't be implemented? Each one of us is a creative person. We all get ideas in our minds and each idea has its own potential unless you don't implement it.

From a PC to mobile devices, from Apps to Robots and driver less cars; all of these are the invention of someone just like one of us.

The only difference is that someone worked on it.

You name it and we have endless number of success stories of ideas which were implemented with dedication and made successful. Those ideas changed our lives.

Every small idea has a potential to not only make this world a better place, but enhance the lifestyle of the person creating it. But how many of us think that way?

How many of us take risks in life or think that the idea that they possess in their minds is worth a billion dollars? People get afraid of failure, they begin to assume that others will laugh at them or probably call them crazy or nuts or worse, they may appear stupid in front of others.

Start-ups - the buzz word of today.

If you think for a while, why the concept of Start-ups has become the buzz word across the globe? For generations, there have been people who started their own businesses but it never became a buzz word? They never became rich in a short span of time. Why?

It's because now a days there are a large number of them taking action around the globe. They are the ones who are developing new ideas and talking about it. The millennials are willing to take that risk. They are still the learners in their lives. They are not shy; they are not afraid, fearful, or even ashamed of failing.

This generation is cool.

Despite lacking experience in life and the financial support, they at least give it a shot. If they can do it, then why not experienced people who are knowledgeable, have financial support of their own, and probably a few success stories up their sleeves?

Someday, I'll

People form ideas in their minds every day, many of which can very well be implemented, but most are scared. They have fear embedded deep in their minds.

It reminds me of the time when Brian Tracy mentioned in one of his seminars I attended, that there are bunch of "someday I'll" people who only know how to procrastinate and get satisfied with "someday I'll do it," and "someday, I'll get rich" type of mindset.

These people have ideas too but since they don't implement them immediately, the same ideas are implemented by someone else later on.

All they are left with, is regretting that the idea actually was in their mind. This is where you may feel within yourself like a fool because you didn't act upon your idea(s). At least, if you had given it a try and failed, it would have been better than not trying at all.

Without action, others may think you are not serious about your plans and are only trying to justify something.

Take action now and come out of "someday I'll" attitude.
Picasso had a saying. He said Good artists copy, great artists steal.' And we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.
So if you have an idea, just work on it; tweak it to fill the gap that you may have found and dont feel shy even if it has been already implemented.
Ideas come to you and they stay in our minds for some time. If you don't give life to it, they move to another soul who can. It goes on and on until that idea is given birth to.

You were fortunate when that idea landed in your mind, but you were inactive for not implementing it. So you missed the flight and can only regret if someone else brings it out.
Next time you have an amazing idea that comes into your mind, don't let it go elsewhere. Work on it and make it a success.
Don't be the richest person in the graveyard
How long will one live, no one knows. Do you have time to wait? Do you think that the idea you wish to implement 3 years from now will not be implemented by someone else in a few weeks time?
Steve Jobs quoted that "Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful... that's what matters to me."
That is why he kept on taking action and worked hours after hours every day to achieve his vision. He didn't wait for things to happen someday.

Let me share a few thoughts about an idea and its implementation out of whatever I have experienced in developing new products and failing to implement.
I run an agency and the commitment towards our clients was always the top priority. Therefore, it was not easy to give enough attention to implement products we developed in-house.
The first idea I developed was in 2004, a small Desktop CRM using ASP technology suitable for small business owners and sales professionals. It could help them manage everything on their own; from potential customers to business meetings, from projects undertaken to their status, and employees leave and salaries.
Since I had just started my ad agency, the focus was always on the clients initially and by the time I thought of testing and launching it, the technology advanced to .Net.
I simply missed the bus.
Nevertheless, I moved on and developed many more products, but for some reason or the other, failed to launch or market them.
However, there was one good thing that turned out to be a blessing in disguise; that every time I failed to implement an idea, I thought of another one and began to work on it. I never stopped myself from creating and developing new ideas despite not being fair enough with the previously developed ideas.

It continued for a few years until I changed my perspective towards how I handled my agency vis-a-vis internally developed ideas.

Earlier, Banana's own projects were put on the back burner because of the commitment with our clients. Now, our team handles the clients and Banana's projects with equal importance and obviously with the same passion.

Banana now is a client of Banana itself and we are accountable for the projects that belong to it. Just one change in my perspective brought about tremendous results and we are on the right track.

I have learned the hard way. I lost so many opportunities by not giving enough attention to many of our projects in the past decade. However, my failure to promote those ideas actually helped me think of more ideas and learn from my previous mistakes.

Those unimplemented ideas have taught me the priceless lessons of not only what to do in a project but what not to do as well. Thanks to those failures and my persistence, I kept moving forward because I was committed to developing new ideas and not giving up.

Today, I can say that we are ready to launch our first portal IdeasHypermarket, and the second one is being tested to be launched in December, 2016.

The third one is at 60% and 3 more ideas on paper and 2 in mind to be worked on in the near future. I know that my funnel of creative ideas is healthy and I am still open to new ideas as well.

It's all in the mind - act on it today

There is no time for regret in life. Take the plunge. Get rich; make billions while you are alive. Don't let the ideas in your mind go with you to the graveyard, implement them now. What good is it being the richest person among the dead?

All you know is that the idea that is in your mind will make this world a better place or better still, make you a billionaire; your success stories will be discussed like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.
Get going, begin working on the idea that you have in mind, today. Take action and don't worry about what others will think or say about you. "Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish."

- Steve Jobs


We all know that tomorrow never comes. The ideas that you have in mind today will become obsolete soon or will be implemented by someone else.

If you feel you have no time or your job doesn't permit you, don't just sit on your idea, bring it out; share it with someone who can implement it. Give life to it while you are in a job and become an entrepreneur with its launch.


If you find yourself in such a situation where an idea is in your mind and you either don't have the resources, time, or need direction on how to go about implementing it, we can talk about it.

I am no Venture Capitalist, but I am an innovator who understands how to give life to an idea.
