To live is to create. We are all creating everyday. You don’t have to be a genius to create new things. You just need to be your true self to create something new.

If you are not creating, you are destroying. Creativity means doing something in different ways.

Creativity means bringing something new to life.

Creativity means modifying what is already there. It doesn’t take much to do that. It just takes courage.

When you are creating something new, you are just playing with your mind. It takes courage. It takes commitment to be a creative person.

If you want to connect with your creative genius, here is how to do it:

According to Leonardo da Vinci, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Whatever you do, don’t make things difficult for yourself. Make it easier.

He also said, “Learning never exhausts the mind.” The only thing that really exhausts the mind is not learning anything new. If you are not learning anything new, you can never be a creative person. Creative people learn new things all the time. They read anything. They question things. They are curious. They never take no for an answer.

Learning expands your life. If you are not learning, you are dying. If you are not learning, what are you doing?

“You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.”

Colette

Yes, we are going to do foolish things, but how are we going to enjoy doing foolish things? We can’t live without doing foolish things? Can you?

Let me ask you one important question. Where does creativity come from?

We want to be known as creative people, but not foolish people. Can you get to your creative genius without doing foolish things? No, you can’t. In order to be creative, you are going to mess up a lot. Because creativity comes from messing up. If you want to be creative in life, you must accept and enjoy doing foolish things.

Creativity comes from doing foolish things.”

Don’t be afraid to do foolish things. In other words, don’t be afraid to be creative. Creative people are foolish people. Having the courage to look foolish is what makes them great. When you do foolish things, be comfortable with them. They are the seeds of greatness. If you want to be great, do foolish things with passion.
