Three Hurdles That Keep Your Ideas Hidden

You’re doing it yourself.

The trouble is the more you repeat something people don’t care about, the more your words taste like spam.

You’re interrupting people.

You’re telling the wrong people.

If you want to stand out, do something different.

We’re so busy we don’t notice what's ordinary. If it’s not loud or threatening, it doesn’t exist. If it’s not standing in our path, we pass by without a second thought.

Take a stand. Make bold assertions. Say something that scares you a little (or a lot). And always make sure it leaves your reader better than you found her.

Tell your ideas to a Gossip.

If you tell a chatty friend your secret, your ideas can reach more people than you ever could with ads, status updates, or constant pleas to your friends.

Think Bigger.

You never know if conventional wisdom is wise until you test it. You don’t know if the door of opportunity will open for you until you knock on it. You won’t know if your words will change anyone’s life until you share them.
