To protect ourselves from possible embarrassment, ridicule, or judgement, we often live life with a psychological lampshade. We hide our most audacious, crazy (and often most important) ideas from the world.
But ideas can't materialize when held captive in our minds. In fact, ideas multiply in value when they are freed, shared, talked about, and tested.
The greatest step towards success is not dreaming up a great idea, but rather, having the guts to share it and act upon it. (Tweet this quote)
So remove your lampshade and expose your light bulbs. After all, an idea must be freed before developing wings.
Be a Maverick!
