Are You Strong Enough To Believe Your Idea Is Worth Billions Of Dollars?

Within a very short period of time in human history, many Billion Dollar businesses have been built:

Amazon
eBay
Facebook
Google
Linkedin
Microsoft
Oprah
Twitter (probably soon)

WhatsApp (added 2.21.2014)
Yahoo
YouTube

The people who created these companies have seen an idea in their mind's eye, felt it in their soul, sketched it out in writing, dreamed about it in their sleep, and followed it through the processes of birthing, nurturing, and flourishing. As a result new businesses which help millions of people have been borne - businesses worth Billions of dollars.

So, if a trusted expert told you your idea is worth billions, are you strong enough to believe it? Are you strong enough to act so as to help give it birth? Are you a "partial believer" not fully believing in the ultimate value or your own idea? Or are you a "full believer"? A person prepared to be the foundation of a Billion Dollar business?

Thanks, and Keep STRONG, "Billionaires In Waiting"!!

Bhaskar,
Including ten does not logically rule out non-Internet companies. Further, a list of ten companies is not intended to be exhaustive. To include all billion dollar companies representing all industries could have taken weeks and could have yielded a list which few, if any, people would have read. It was an improvised list, meant to stir imagination. You are encouraged to use your imagination to think of other companies...

A believer - yes, I am. In fact, I believe there's a billionaire in every one of us. We each have the capacity within us to create one billion dollars (or more), regardless of our personality, perspicacity, position, or purse.

They say that the first million is the hardest. "They" weren't kidding, lol! In fact, the first 100k is proving to be a bit of a struggle even after failing several times in the attempt(s). And yet, each time has been a learning experience. Each time is taking me one step closer, closer to the truth about building wealth. Do you want to know what I think that truth it is?

Know yourself - really, really well. Then know and love others. Yes, love. You're bound to encounter those who for whatever reason get on your very last nerve. Love them, in spite of their perceived faults. They will take you forward, because they bring something you don't have. Unfortunately, I don't think this is a "weekend assignment". I've spent my lifetime trying to figure this out and I would currently score an "incomplete".

Perhaps I'm being hard on myself, but.. Business models are easy - create value, buy low sell high, secure cash flow, build a team - easy, right? Partnerships, customer relationships, customer experience, employee motivation, commitment through calamity - now that's hard stuff. If we get these right, then we're well on our way to billionairehood.

I am strong enough to believe - in myself and those around me. And I know that I will be well on my way to becoming a billionaire by the end of 2010.

Henry,
Just to clarify: the question wasn't "Are your ideas worth billions". Rather, the question was "Are You Strong Enough To Believe Your Idea Is Worth Billions Of Dollars?" (While at first glance they may seem synonymous, they're not...)

Thanks, and Keep STRONG!

No, my ideas aren't worth billions - only thousands or millions - but then I don't care about billions.

Henry

Absoutely, I am working on a billion dollar empire combining all the facets that I love. I have an idea that will help our community and leave a legacy that my children and grandchildren will be proud of.

Fred,
Both teaching and learning are great things but, I think it would be a mistake to think that EITHER "idea generation" or being an "entrepreneurial type" would need to be taught.

Let's not forget these two life/business lessons:
1. Inspiration can teach and
2. Inspiration can sell

(Of course, teaching could be used to "refine" both ideas and entrepreneurship...)

Thanks, and Keep STRONG, Fred!

Great to hear, Mike! (Of course, I've known that about BlitzTime as soon as I first experienced it! :-) )

Thanks, and Keep STRONG, Mike!

Yes. Absolutely. Multi-billions.

And we're working to achieve that goal every day. One dollar at a time.
