Two of the saddest stories I have heard were from two people who had ideas they thought could make a difference in the world. Unfortunately, one did not want to tell anyone who may be able to help for fear the idea would be stole. The other turned down an opportunity because the investor wanted at least 50% of the company for taking all the financial risk by funding the idea. As far as I know, neither have brought their idea to the world.
As a result, the world does not benefit from what each person had to offer. When we ask the universe to help us achieve our goals, the answer may not be what we thought. The unique perspective of the unseen realm, is that a larger picture is known.
Instead of not moving forward, what if each person found a win win solution for all parties, how much would the world have benefited. Sadly, we may never know. What if the parties could agree on a future buyout of enough of the investors shares to make the idea person the controlling party. What if, before discussing the money-making idea, a confidentiality agreement was signed, could this have made a difference.
How many of us will take great ideas to the grave, which could have changed not only our life, but also the lives of many others? How many of us have allowed fear or greed to stop us from achieving our goals? So I ask again, “Is a % of something better than 100% of nothing?”
