Enthusiasm turns mediocre days into days of opportunity. It displaces passive thinking and bursts open legions of creative energy. That eagerness for life resides deep inside us. And it is there even when we think it is gone. In order to reach your long-term goals, you need long haul enthusiasm. That intense excitement about progress is what gives goals wings and sets our souls on fire to keep climbing despite the struggle.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

Highly Creative People Do These 4 Things (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 349)

“Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.”
— Dee Hock

Young children are often divided into two categories: creative types and not-so creative types. Many times, this differentiation comes from one’s experiences in childhood. Artistic children who are nimble with drawing or music often get the “creative” label. Those whose minds revolve around logic are not placed in the creative boat. But being creative really has nothing to do with labels. Everyone — artistical or logical — has the capacity to nurture creativity. Read more…

At Rock Bottom? Remember 3 Things (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 265)

“The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.”
— Moliere

I wish I could tell you that everybody who hits rock bottom survives. But you have been around too long and probably seen too much to believe that. Many people don’t make it ever up out of the pit because they feel all is hopeless and lost. But some people do. They find themselves in a situation that is unpleasant or uncomfortable, and they know deep down inside that this is not the way they were meant to live or how they imagine things should be. So they do things and tell themselves things to start the climb from rock bottom to the top. Read more…

3 Whole Habits of Seriously Creative People (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 207)

3 Whole Habits of  Seriously Creative  People

“An artist paints, dances, draws, writes, designs, or acts at the expanding edge of consciousness. We press into the unknown rather than the known. This makes life lovely and lively.”
— Julia Cameron

Humanity couldn’t survive without creativity. It is a way for many people to escape — at least for some time — from reality. We can’t hide from life. What good would life be if we all were hiding from it. But we can’t hide from creativity either. It is there for us to embrace. It helps us to think and rethink problems and solutions. We make a grave mistake when we deceive ourselves into think that gravity equals greatness. Sometimes, one has to be less grave and tap into the creative power of the life force that rises within.

3 Plain Habits of Seriously Creative People (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 206)

3 Plain Habits of  Seriously Creative  People

“It seems to be one of the paradoxes of creativity that in order to think originally, we must familiarize ourselves with the ideas of others.”
— George Kneller

The highest reward anyone can receive for creative work is the inner ability and heart to be creative. Creativity brings with it a satisfying joy and meaningful expression that cannot be undermined or mistaken. Truly creative people don’t worry about applause or promotions or being recognized in any way for their work. Their work is beautiful to them first. They love their work so much that even if it was rejected by every single soul on earth it would still be wonderful to them because it is their creation. You must remember God didn’t ask for anyone’s opinion about the world. He just created it and said, “it is good”. You must have the same love, intimacy, and thrill about your work. Read more…

3 Simple Habits of  Seriously Creative  People

“A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.”
— Gerald G. Jampolsky

Creativity can solve nearly every problem. As long as the person who is intent on doing the solving is courageous enough to act on his instincts. Creativity defeats habit and defines what it means to be original. Being original isn’t always the magic. It’s being able to see the same things everyone else sees in a different way and improving upon that vision. Creativity — the act of being creative — holds the power to overcome everything.

3 Clear Habits of Seriously Creative People (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 204)

3 Clear Habits of Seriously Creative People

“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.”
— Albert Einstein

“The mind is a terrible thing to waste” is so much more than a popular statement. What we do with our minds and allow into our minds has the ability to develop us into better people or degrade us into something worse. Being creative causes us to use our minds in ways that actually bring usefulness and happiness into our lives and into the lives of other people. When we don’t know what to do, creativity kicks in and makes us spin stories, create music, and develop solutions that never were until now. Read more…

3 Total Habits of Seriously Creative People (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 203)

3 Total Habits of  Seriously Creative  People

“Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward; they may be beaten, but they may start a winning game.”
— Goethe

Creativity is a veiled mystery. It is definitive in some personality types, but it can also be fluid in others. Ideas and insights flow from almost nowhere and at other times fail to even let us know where to begin especially when we need them. Creative people seem to be complex but are actually far more simple than we realize — just in their own way. To have the ability to create anything is both a huge privilege and an even greater responsibility. Read more…
