What Does Creativity Brings To Your Life?


The Power of Self Motivation

Self motivation is essential if you want to excel and succeed in life and business.

You can achieve everything you have ever wanted to have, experience, or become.

The power has and always will be within you, but nothing will happen until you get and stay motivated to make something happen, to change your life and achieve your desires. Self motivation empowers you and helps you keep your spirit high no matter how discouraging a situation is.

Your Intention

Succeeding in life and business requires a strong intention to succeed. "How to" is secondary. Get inspired first. Have a dream. If you really want something you’ll invent amazing ways to achieve it.

3 Pillars of Inspiration

"Just as an archer requires a target before he can shoot his arrow, you need a target before you can get motivated to achieve it."4

Your intention is a synergistic combination of three elements: desire, belief, and acceptance. It determines your motivation and how successfully you attain your goals... More

Discontent as a Motivator

Discontent, anxiety, and anger, if you use and harness it in a positive way, are some of the most powerful motivations you can have. Use them if you're not happy with where you are right now. Find an area of discontent, think things through, and taking action.

Take Action!

Fear as a Motivator

You have two ways to go with fear. You can weaken the negative ones or strengthen the empowering ones.4

Take in mind a goal that you wish to achieve. Be specific about what you want and why you want it. Once you have your chosen goal in mind, it's time to create some fear. Imagine that you lived the rest of your life never having achieved your goal, and you never realized your potential or what you were capable of.

Failure As a Stepping Stone To Success

Create as horrible a picture as you can about this possible future. Think about how you'll feel about yourself, how others will feel about you, and how much it will hurt to know that you'll never do the things you wanted to do. And most effective of all, you never became the person you always knew you could be.

You now have fear working for you. Human beings will do most anything to avoid an intensely painful situation. By using this to your advantage you will be motivated to achieve your goal and avoid the pain of regret.4

Problem Solving

  Problem Solving Strategies: 4 Levels

Your attitude is extremely important. When you think of problems you'll only attract more problems. When you think of solutions – you'll attract solutions and opportunities.

Don't focus on the problem, look for solutions. See every every problem as an opportunity. Approach the problem with the expectant attitude that there is an innovative practical solution just waiting to be found.  Be relaxed, confident and clear in your mind.... More

Emotional Intelligence (EI)

"Emotional Intelligence" refers to your capacity to recognize your own feelings and those of others, for motivating yourself, and for managing emotions well in yourself and in your relationships.

"It describes abilities distinct from, but complementary to, academic intelligence, the purely cognitive capabilities measured by IQ. Many people who are book smart lack emotional intelligence but lack emotional intelligence end up working for people who have lower IQs than they but who excel in emotional intelligence skills."1
