Watch What Happens When You Use Your Creative Mind

Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at. —Unknown

There is a solution to everything. We have been created to be problem solvers. If there is a problem, there is always an answer. We can figure anything out. Start believing good things will occur—it is a small and simple shift that works wonders once you set it in place in your mind and habits.

Looking for negative things to stop us from accomplishing our desires is based on a lack of mentality. Start thinking more prosperously. Be kind to yourself. Whatever is stopping you from doing what you want is a problem that can be solved. Do you want to move across the country? Do you want to write a book? Form a professional band? Then, get started on a plan to make it happen. Do you want to be a writer? A screenwriter? You can do it. It requires you to step up and be a bigger you though. It requires a personal growth spurt. You can grow or you can stay where you are and plateau. I find that growth is where the magic happens.


Are you a visionary? The artist, through her art, “connects us with superhuman and timeless worlds beyond our conscious knowing,” says Carl Jung. You can be an ‘artist’ in any area—writing, painting, creating in any way, comedy, music, etc.––and be a visionary. The trick is to know who you are and do something with it. Perform it, make it, show it, do it, share it. As a visionary, trust in it––trust in yourself––and do something with it.

Your creative mind can be ‘channeled’

Creative thinking can be channeled into other areas. Once you have a grasp of your vision, it can be used in many areas. You can create music with your paintings. You can make a class with your poetry. You can channel hypnotic waves into your paintings. You can channel your art into a letter.

Creativity is innate

Being creative, along with the specific acts of creativity, is not the easiest thing to teach…as it is a knowing, an intuition. If you have it, you need to hold on to it, as most people will not let you know if you do have it or not. Creativity usually systematized or taught out of people.

There is nothing wrong with being creative or different from other people. Everyone is different. You are living life authentically, and it is not the norm. That is why it feels weird. But it is more than likely that you are very close to the inner core of yourself. Different is a good thing.

Do not beat yourself up mentally. We all have our unique purpose in life. We need to pause from the auto-pilot, daily life and check out who we are and who we are becoming. Do not hold grudges. Work to remain neutral. Do not stay upset with anyone.

Get precise on your wants and desires. Yes, you can have them—and you can attain them. What do you need? What do you need to excel and be the ultimate you? Write this down. Define your purpose. Everyone has one. Begin to get in touch with yours!

The more you understand yourself and who you are, the more confidence you will develop.

It is much easier to take action on your goals than to worry about them and do nothing. Believe me! Decide who you are and who you want to be now. It will keep changing the more you grow. It will not change if you do not question this. Do not sell yourself short. Know that you are worthy of so much more.

The more you understand yourself and who you are, the more confidence you will develop. The lack of self-confidence is what keeps a person from expressing their heart’s desire. Make the study of yourself your highest priority, right now. Focus on being productive—not busy.

Always be sure to make time for yourself. You are more than good enough. The best and proven way to attract what and who you want? Stop being concerned about little issues—learn to detach yourself from anything that is not worth it. Strive for something bigger. Push yourself. Always be on the lookout for new opportunities that will push you further. Keep this up, and you will not believe the magic that will occur.

Be crumbled. So wild flowers will come up where you are. You have been stony for too many years. Try something different. Surrender. —Rumi

Begin now.

You are not too old. You are not too big—or small. If you are not happy with your body, work on it a little each day. If you feel uncomfortable about your age, put it on hold for a little while. Seriously, forget how old you are. Start living like you are ten years younger with the new knowledge and experience you have acquired. You have to get creative in your life if it is going to be fun and exciting. Guess what, there are zero excuses not to. I mean zero.

Own your power.
