My confidence was shaky for a moment and doubt was creeping in, so I started reminding myself that December is a big month for big ideas.
And a lot of big ideas transpired in December.
December 1, 1948 – Scrabble the board game was copyrighted.
December 1, 1925 – Mr. Peanut was trademarked.
December 2, 1969 – The home security system was patented.
December 4, 1990 – The key ring pocket pen was patented.
December 6, 1955 – The car Volkswagen was trademarked.
December 7, 1926 – Keebler was trademarked.
December 9, 1924 – Wrigley’s was trademarked.
December 21, 1937 – Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was copyrighted.
December 24, 1974 – The folding chair was patented.
December 27, 1966 – The theme song to “Star Trek” was copyrighted.
December 30, 1851 – Asa Griggs Candler was born. (Without him, no Coca-Cola, one of the worlds leading global brands)
December 31, 1935 – Monopoly was patented.
And there are many more.
So you see, December is a big month.
December is more than rushing, kid’s plays, meals, travel and gift giving.
You may be at the very edge of the beginning of your greatest moment and then surpass an even greater moment after that.
Have an open mind during the month of December.
Your mind may generate an idea for the next big thing.
It should be you.
It can be you.
