Make It Happen

This is a follow up post to my thoughts on questions to ask yourself about being successful. If you missed it, click here to read about it.

One key element to our success is execution on the ideas we have. An idea, is just an idea unless we execute. Have you ever wondered how to go from just thinking about your ideas to implementing them? Scott Belsky of the Behance Network has authored a book entitled: Making Ideas Happen. In it he gives practical advice of how to action steps to accomplish your goals. I’ve uploaded an excerpt of the book in today’s post. Also for more information about the Scott or the Behance Network visit The 99 Percent by clicking here.

Making Ideas Happen



Face it. If you and I are going to BE all that we are called to be we need to be sure we’ve asked our ourselves these ten questions.

Another thought you and I both need to give serious consideration to is whether or not we have a MENTOR. Is that just for students in middle and high school? Of course not. Here are five reasons we need a mentor and what The Voice music competition teaches us about having one.

First, watch the promo.

If by Rudyard Kipling is one of my favorite poems for motivation. What’s yours? Leave a comment.


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!

–Rudyard Kipling

Go Get It!

The movie “The Pursuit Of Happyness” is a very inspiring film. Did you catch my previous post?

Chris’s story is a testimony to all who have a goal. We have to give it our all. More after the jump.

Three points to remember from this scene:
1. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t have.
2. If you have a dream, protect it.
3. If you want something, go get it.
