Success starts with one big idea. Whether you admit it or not, you had one idea you wish you pursued. You had one idea that would have allowed you to finally kick back and ride into the sunset. Now, that idea is buried deep into the ground or someone may have finally thought of the same idea you had years back and is thriving because of it.
And now, you regret you didn't take action. I know the feeling. If I acted on my idea of a small doughnut stand, I would have been a full-time entrepreneur by now. Now, a doughnut stand is operating at the very exact location where I was planning to put it up. I let my idea pass me by and someone else has finally thought of it.
Don't let the next big idea just pass you by. Write it down, plan it out, and act on it one step at a time. Who knows? Your idea may be the next big thing. If it fails, at least you tried and you learned. At least you'll be a failure closer to your success.
