If you had met me 7 years I ago I might have been the most scattered person you had ever met.

I was totally disorganized,Why Ideas Are Not Always Good Articles mentally I was scattered, there was no way I was going to accomplish something worthwhile with my life.

Those times were tough, but luckily I was able to change those bad habits into good ones.

Back then I had so many ideas that I started drowning in them and I ended up not following through on anything at all. Success has been defined as a commitment to completion and I agree.

I wanted to share one of the most popular articles that I've written over the last few years because I've received so many emails from people on how much it's helped them.

It bothers me immensely when people cheat themselves out of their dreams because they're 'all over the place'.

I was 'beat up' by the idea avalanche for years and when I finally got control of it my income skyrocketed. And yours will to.

Enjoy the article:

Enough Ideas Already!

How an abundance of 'great ideas' almost ruined my life and how to stop the 'idea avalanche' from ruining yours!

Great ideas are worthless.

A true statement 99.7% of the time.

Great ideas are a scam on oneself.

A true statement 99.7% of the time.

Great ideas never make you money!

A true statement 99.7% of the time.

Great ideas waste your time.

A true statement 99.7% of the time.

Great ideas almost ruined my life and my business. I stopped it.

Just in time. Minutes before the ‘idea avalanche' was going to take me down.

The 'idea avalanche' is defined as:
The mental condition whereby ideas come to you in such abundance that you have trouble keeping up with all of them.

For a 9 year period, I chased my tail. 'Million dollar' idea after ‘Million dollar idea’. ‘Million dollar idea’ after ‘Million dollar idea’.

Every few days. Another idea came to mind that was going to make me rich. It was amazing.

I would start writing stuff down on Monday about an idea. By Wednesday, I got a new, 'better one', and was on to the next one.

A vicious cycle.

One after another. One after another.

Does any of this sound familiar? To many, you know this scenario all to well. All to well.

The 'idea avalanche' at first seems to be a friend. Years later, when you've done nothing you
realize this fact.

The 'idea avalanche' is an enemy. One that if not controlled will hold hostage your goals and dreams.

When people say 'I have a million dollar or billion dollar idea', I say great and I sometimes laugh.

It's probably true. But does one have any idea what is necessary to take that idea and turn it into reality.

Most people don't. The 'idea avalanche' has got them.

There's only one way out.

Decide on 1 idea that 'does it' for you.

And open fire on the enemy with your only weapon.


Massive action.

It's the step that changed my life.


Get focused and get into action! You'll begin to clearly see how you can achieve extraordinary results.

Talk to you soon.
