Then again, many people may believe coming up with new products, innovation, being the leader is too hard, it is for supper smart people, etc. The reality is that inventions, innovative thinking is a lot easier than most people believe. For example, how many time there is a new product in the market, you see it and you say to yourself “why didn’t think of it before?” The main thing here is to believe in yourself, believe you can do it!
