Let us take a hypothetical scenario:
This looks unbelievable when it comes to money. You can’t get a deal better than that. It is too good to be true. However, there is a scenario where this theory will work – it is when you share your thoughts with the right set of people. Who are these set of people? These are thought amplifiers. You tell them an idea that is at 5 on a scale of 10 and these people can transform the idea to be at 9 on a scale of 10. All this in a matter of minutes. Sometimes you take an idea to them and when they transform the idea, you feel that it was not even close to your idea. They seem like catalysts but they are much more than that. In simple terms, they touch an idea and they make it more valuable than before. The best part – they make it look so easy and make you feel “Why didn’t I think of that?” Now, imagine sharing your idea with ten such thought amplifiers. You will open up a whole new set of possibilities.
Silicon Valley is one such place where there is a huge concentration of “Thought Amplifiers.” That makes it easy for young entrepreneurs to start their businesses. That is from my experience in the last ten years of living here. I am sure that wherever you are, you will find “thought amplifiers” around you. The point is – do you have the time to invest in building the relationships with these thought amplifiers to make it worth their while to lend their power to you?
