Stop thinking people will steal your ideas

Over the last 7 years I have been working with people to develop their personal confidence, enhance their careers and transform their businesses….

What really frustrates me is people that are reluctant to share their thoughts and ideas – ask me to sign non disclosures or simply just insist that their ideas need to be protected because I might steal them and do them myself.



Most ideas have been already discovered, innovation is about creating different ways and this needs ideas to be shared and acted upon… if you live in the fear of your ideas being stolen then you will never get the idea off the ground.

I am not asking you to go shouting from the roof tops… but there are ways to initiate and stimulate action on ideas without fear of them being stolen.

Here is a tip the next time you want to get feedback on an idea – outline the vision and purpose of the idea and then ask your audience

  • what am I missing?
  • or why wouldn’t it work?

We are naturally instilled to give feedback or opinion.

I share my ideas all the time – I am not worried about people stealing or copying… instead I am more interested in what is missing or why it wouldn’t work.

This gives me a more productive perspective and competence or knowledge..

The more knowledge you have the more comfortable you become… the more comfortable you are the more confidence is achieved and this changes your attitude.

We live in a community of collaboration where ideas are shared and solutions are built.

At Enterprise Lab we have been helping people turn their ideas into reality for over 6 years and our work has impacted hundreds of thousands of people realise that if they live in the fear of their ideas being stolen only leaves them behind.

Why 70% of ideas don’t make it to reality

Are you someone who is constantly coming up with ideas? – but you don’t really do much about them?

Have you ever been in the position that your mind seems to the very distraction to your progress?

Ever thought you are being held back from achieving your aspirations simply because you try and then when it isn’t going well you change direction?Movie Fifty Shades Darker (2017)Watch movie online A Cure for Wellness (2017)Roblox Hack Free Robux

These are all common symptoms that I see in clients I work with daily… too many ideas, excessive procrastination and often an extremely low confidence at this point I am asked how to overcome this.

STOP!!! You are wasting your time, energy and money… 

The key to innovation or being innovative is to ideate for sure; coming up with creative ways to overcome stale challenges; but that is only one part of the process…

  • Ideas represent only 7% of the overall innovation
  • The innovation itself represents only 10% of the process
  • 83% is down to action


Failing to act means the idea remains a figment of your imagination… most ideas have already been spawned…

Generally they have been poorly executed because they haven’t been shared, built or acted upon.

The first thing you need to do is take the energy and excitement of an idea and start to strategise

  • what is you are trying to do?
  • Why are you trying to do this and of course
  • why this idea will or will not work?


You cannot answer these questions on your own – you need external influences especially those who have no knowledge or bias to you or the idea.

To really become innovative you have to learn to let go… give the creativity time to breathe but most of all you must ACT because without action you have nothing.

At Enterprise Lab we have been working with people to unlock the potential from within – success is based on attitude which is all linked to mindset.
