Much like David Schwarts in his book Think big, said, In order to have better world, you gotta have better persons. Innovation is always been kept in some people soul which would be delivered to others only if there was reasons for it. By whom and why innovations are made?
The first motive for individuals to be innovative is the message that they ought to deliver and the belief beyond it. For example, all prophets and God messengers starting from Adam to Jesus Christ and Mohammed strived to deliver the message of the God and to change the world, and they did as a result of strong beliefs that they have. Each one of them has left a memorable mark as it would be the same for every one else who has a clear message and belief.
Although that the individuals beliefs is the most important evidence to show that all innovations come from individuals first, is not the only reason but also, society pressure has a great influence to individuals to be innovative and to sought change. In eighties, the life have challenged the black people in the U.S. after they have reached their limit of tolerance, Martin L. King has started the great movement towards peace, spreading justice, and stop racism, in which have made a great innovation in the justice history of the United States. As a result, society pressure can move individuals toward innovation.
In addition to individual beliefs and society pressure, dreams are the greatest blast to desire which derive individuals to innovate, Bill Gates is the best example for this case who was driven by his dream to create the best software in the world, and he did. How would it be to the world without Bill Gates software? For that, right dreams always lead to innovation.
In the end, to be a figure on this earth you have to be innovative and in order to be innovative you should have strong beliefs, dreams and the courage to face the society pressure.
