3 Extra Habits of Seriously Creative People (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 202)
“Where observation is concerned, chance favors the prepared mind.”
— Louis Pasteur
Creativity is the opportunity for everyone to have their own personal genius. No two cars are exactly alike and that is the reason we have so many makes and models. At their core, vehicles get us from point A to point B. All of them do. But it is the creativity behind each vehicle that makes one car more desirable and most purchased than others. This is the power of being creative. If you can do something so innovative and so well, other people will beat a path to your doorstep to participate in your gift.
1. They speak with rhythm.
Just listen to a seriously creative person speak. When they talk, they have a unique ability to express themselves using creative language. They make complex concepts simple and make usually boring topics exciting and interesting. My thing isn’t really science but one of my professors who teaches biology can turn any science project into a work of unbelievable fun.
2. They bring dead things to life.
Not literally. But seriously creative people have a unique ability to take inanimate objects and give them life. They can take a play truck or a doll and make you believe it is a real character who has a past, a present, and a future with a real story and personality. Creative types are like that — they can develop a story out of almost anything — sidewalks, a fly on a window, a junk yard. That’s just the way they are.
3. They are passionate.
Their passion is different from just being dedicated to a cause or being curious about a certain subject. They are really into what they do. They eat, drink, sleep, and breathe their work. You can tell someone is really passionate when they weave what they do into every conversation. For creative types you may not always understand what they’re doing, but they can certainly give you the impression that it is the next best thing. And to them, it really is.
“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”
