Create with the heart; build with the mind.
Follow your heart but take your brain with you.
The best way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas.
While observing successful people, you will notice soon enough that they have some things in common. One of those things is that they all have a lot of projects going on. Their minds are infinite pools of ideas and they have the courage (and the means) to try their ideas out.
No matter what you want to achieve, having a lot of ideas in your brain is an awesome way to start! Yes, there may be some stupid ones that you will rule out, but if there is one good idea in a hundred attempts, then you better start dreaming and opening your mind towards new concepts and inventions.
Allow yourself to be creative and to dream, soon enough you will be rewarded!
Let me tell you something about me: I was never a good learner. You could say I never learned to learn.
Going through University right now this troubles me a lot as you can think and therefore I decided to quit complaining and put an end to it.
So recently I started my very own approach of learning how to learn and I found this to be very true:
The brain is liek a muscle. When it is in use we feel very good. Understanding is joyous.
Do not neglect your brains!
This does not apply solely to school, college or university but to every aspect of your life, be it work, hobbies or play.
Use your brains, educate yourself! It may be a rough start, but once you get used to it, you will enjoy it. A lot!
