How To Turn Your Ideas Into Extreme Wealth
by Stuart Goldsmith
To become a wealthy man or woman, you must come up with an
original, creative idea for a product or service which you
believe the public will want to buy from you. Then you must put
in the hours to research and test this idea. If it looks no good,
you must create another idea until you find a winner.
The second way is to locate a hot, fresh idea which is working
somewhere right now (say in another country) and then to recreate
the idea in your own territory, obviously without plagiarizing
somebody else's work. E.g. if you hear that a new premium rate
telephone line on Irritable Bowel Syndrome is taking 19,000 calls
a day in the USA, this is an idea you could immediately pick up
and run with in the UK. In other words, you wait for someone else
to find a winner, then jump quickly onto the bandwagon.
When you have found a winner, then you must pursue your idea and
dream with passion, and not some wimpish and feeble 'attempt.'
This is called 'paying the price.' The price is action and
sometimes a little m˛ney. If you are broke, then you must chose
an idea which doesn't take a lot of m˛ney.
If you don't feel passionate about your idea, then it's not for
you. How do you think you're going to succeed at something you
feel lukewarm about? What will drag you out of bed on those cold
winter mornings? What will give you the courage to face those
waves of problems we discussed? What will keep you fighting on
when all about you is turning to ashes and you are filled with
hopeless despair? Your lukewarm desire to 'have a go'? I don't
An idea without action is almost worthless. So I would not try to
go down the route of thinking up 'inventions' which you can sell
to Black and Decker, etc. Only very rarely do such ideas get
taken up, and even then you would not make a fortune. Instead,
your idea should be one that you can operate and reap the rewards
from. The more original the better, otherwise you are just
picking over the bones of somebody else's idea, and you will not
Even when you jump onto a new bandwagon, you still need creative
energy to transform that idea into something which will work in
your area. There is little m˛ney to be made when you are tenth
out of fifty in the marketplace, with nothing to distinguish your
product or service from that of your competitors.
When I tell people this stark truth during consultations, they
often complain: "I don't have any ideas." "What can I do? I'm not
really sure." "I've tried for ages to think of something, but I
just come up with a blank." "Help me! Have you got any original
ideas you don't want and which you can pass on to me?"
I know it's hard to be in this position - remember I was there
too. Yes, it seems difficult; impossible sometimes, but this is
what will mark you out as a winner if you can pass this
Please let me be absolutely clear on this and give you the stark
truth if you are also tempted to complain about not having any
You're not creative? You've never had an original thought in your
life? You've tried a couple of times to think of something new,
but given up? Well I have some very bad news for you. You will
never be wealthy unless you win the lottery or get lucky in some
other way. You will always be poor, struggling along with the
masses, scarcely able to pay your way and probably in debt until
the day you die. At the very best you will eke-out survival in a
paid job, or rake over the dead ashes of somebody else's dream,
hoping to raise the Phoenix, but the bird will have long since
I am sorry if I sound a little harsh, but I believe quite
strongly that you would rather have the truth from me, bitter
though it is, than to be fed more lies and distortions.
Reminder: These comments only apply to getting rich. It's okay
not to want to be rich - really, it is - in which case this
Wealth belongs to creative people alone. There is only one way to
get wealthy. Persuade lots and lots of people to give
you their m˛ney. You can either do this at the point of a gun
(dishonest), or you can ˛ffer them something which makes them
give it to you voluntarily - to trade with you.
Now if you cannot muster the energy to come up with your own
idea, or you think that you are 'not creative,' then guess what?
- you pick up somebody else's fifth-hand idea and try to run
that. Guess what again? Only a few people hand you their m˛ney,
the rest trade with the hundreds of others who are all trying to
run the same idea and you don't get rich! You just about make a
living. This is not what you want, I hope.
Now if you take action and create something original and new,
suddenly you're the only supplier. Thousands or millions of
people flock to willingly exchange their m˛ney for your product
or service and you become wealthy. More importantly, you become
guiltlessly wealthy - you earned it through your creative
