There are so many avenues that can help you with this
- Start early - the earlier you start - the more time you have to iterate on an idea and move on to the next one
- Develop a risk taking appetite - You should back yourself all the way - whether the idea succeeds or not. If the Idea succeeds chances are you are going to make a ton of money and be successful. If the idea fails, you will have invaluable learning of what mistakes you did and what you should not do when trying your second idea. This experience cannot be obtained via any books. If things go really bad, then you would have gained enough skillset to make yourself competitive in the Job market anyway. So it is a Win-Win
- Enroll in YC Startup school (https://www.startupschool.org/) - you can audit the course and view what other startup founders and currently doing. Nothing better than learning from people who have similar interests
- Think about how you will make your day better - It is pretty rare to generate worthy ideas by reading books/magazines. You will be best positioned to solve a problem if you are experiencing it or are talking with someone who are experiencing it.
- Work Hard - Needless to say, you should be willing to slog it out and back yourself to succeed. Reading autobiographies really help to understand how other company founders did it
