In this TED talk, Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses. She also shares the radical idea there is a ‘genius’ inside of all us.  How would you like to know how to unlock your inner genius and unleash your creativity?

 

‘If you’re alive, you’re a creative person.’

DOES CREATIVITY COME FROM US OR IS IT SPIRITUAL?

In Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, people did not happen to believe that creativity came from human beings back then, OK? People believed that creativity was this divine attendant spirit that came to human beings from some distant and unknowable source, for distant and unknowable reasons.

In this Ted talk, Elizabeth Gilbert talks about how we all have a genius with and asks why are we afraid of this creative power?  She goes on to say whenever we start talking about creativity everyone gets a little nervous and starts worrying about their mental health. Elizabeth suggests we help those creative people, so their genius can come out.

"Pure creativity is something better than a necessity; it’s a gift. It’s the frosting.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

"Our creativity is a wild and unexpected bonus from the universe.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

HOW CAN WE DO CREATIVITY DIFFERENTLY?

 

Creativity itself doesn’t care at all about results – the only thing it craves is the process.  Learn to love the process and let whatever happens next happen, without fussing too much about it.  Work like a monk, or a mule, or some other representative metaphor for diligence.  Love the work.

Destiny will do what it wants with you, regardless.

“If you are given only one opportunity to speak, be certain your voice is heard.”
