How many times have you been in a meeting and someone says to you, “That’s a great idea, you should take the initiative and make it a reality.” Converting an idea into a reality is never an easy task. In fact, it is extremely difficult, and “giving ideas life” is much like giving birth to a child.

This applies to all. We know that in manufacturing; fabrication services start with an idea, and good ones are able to turn great ideas into physical reality.

As the old saying goes, “If it were easy – everyone would do it.” So, besides fabrication services, every successful reality starts with a great idea as well. For example, we see this all the time with companies based on great ideas that then did not remain innovative and/or competitive enough to sustain their market leadership positions. The same thing holds also true in the workplace as we should be concerned about our ability to remain competitive – as both individuals and in our organizations.

Did you ever think that not being involved in innovative activities was irresponsible? Well, it is – not just to yourself, but to those around you.

As you think about how you can begin to embrace an innovative attitude more actively, here are 10 things you must actively do – at all times – in order to convert ideas into reality:

1. Believe in Yourself
You can’t take action until you believe in yourself enough to handle the consequences of your decisions. Any time you assume the responsibility to give something that had not existed before an opportunity to become a reality, you become accountable for your actions.

2. Embrace Risk as Your Best Friend
Risk becomes your best friend when you give birth to an idea. If you can accept this fact, you will approach the process with a lens that keeps your dreams and ambitions in perspective and on track. You often hear that “working hard” is an imperative to convert ideas into reality. But in fact, it is the most fundamental commitment one must make to assume any form of risk management.

3. Be Extremely Patient
Compromise is a choice, not a sacrifice. Take the time to appreciate the journey and understand how things work. Most people are too anxious to get their desired results and thus start to make bad decisions as they go. Keep your head up and respect the process and where it takes you. You will learn a lot about your threshold of risk and ability. Equally, you will learn that many doubters are ready to stand in your way and may attempt to bring you down; this is when the ride gets uncomfortable. Constantly reevaluate those with whom you are sharing the journey.

4. Learn How to Sell Your Vision
Converting your idea to a reality requires you to help others understand your vision. Clearly define your value proposition and how it can generate revenue. Selling lofty ideas without understanding how it will achieve financial results will never get you the right audience. The bottom line is what gets everyone’s attention.

5. Be Passionate with Your Pursuit
When you put your passion into everything you do, it gives you the power to become a potent pioneer. You will blaze paths few would go down, and see them all the way through to the end. Your passionate pursuit of converting your idea into a reality will open new doors to endless possibilities. Your ability to remain passionate about what you stand for is the ultimate enabler for the success of your idea.

6. Be Purposeful
Your intentions for your idea must have purpose and meaning. If not, your probability to quit along the way will increase. It will also increase the likelihood of you “psyching yourself out with unnecessary excuses.” Your purpose is to execute the idea and make others believe too. Purpose fuels your passion and makes your journey less lonely. Perhaps this explains why fabrication services & design companies outperform others with non-artistic orientation. Today creativity nourishes productivity.

7. Always Make the idea Better
Never grow complacent. You can always expand upon your idea and make it better. When you begin to see how the dots connect, challenge yourself and your personal board of advisors to make your ideas even better. This is what Steve Jobs did with Apple, Pixar Animation and Apple again. Continuous improvements were part of his legacy. He never stopped thinking of ways to make his ideas better.
This very much applies with fabrication services, where ideas and conception represent the first step of a successful event each and every time.
