To the first timers here we say you’re welcome and to those who’re already a member of the family, it’s nice to have you here again.
In the last post we agreed that a man gathers information from two main sources and we dwelt a bit on the first source which is knowledge. In this post, we will pick up from where we stopped and look at the second source of information. What is this second main source of information?
IDEAS, yes that’s the second source of information. Remember we said information is what forms you and your actions are based on them. What are ideas?
IDEAS if well analyzed is what set men ASIDE from others. Whatever you see today was first an information that someone came across through ideas and then it was acted upon.
Unlike knowledge which you acquire from external resources, ideas come from within. It is an information from a different realm. Your ideas may be birthed based on something similar to what you saw in the physical but it comes in a new and unique form. The device you’re using to read this was someone’s idea, this platform that made it possible for me to post this from my end here and you being able to read over there was another person’s idea, the design of the house you live in was someone’s idea, the cars you see around you started as ideas to some people.
This therefore means information can come to a man from his inside or his environment. If you would be sincere with yourself, you have gotten ideas in time past but either you just discarded them or pen them down without doing anything about them.
In conclusion, you will realize that the two sources of information have something in common, which is, to distinguish those who possess them from the crowd. And it is also worthy of note to realize that both can be mixed together to birth a new reality. For instance, you get an idea as to how you can generate electrical power in a new form but barely have any prior knowledge about electricity. All you need to do is find materials or people that can explain the basics to you (knowledge) then add what you caught in your mind (idea) to it and boom you create something new.
Every man remembered and celebrated today for one thing or the other which they created aren’t being celebrated for their ideas but for their ACTIONS. What are you doing with your ideas?
