Hey Guys, Hope you are doing well… It’s a beautiful day…
and I am just kind of… detoxing my mind and body, after my trip to Vegas…
It was a very exciting trip and we met with so many people that we’ve been connecting on Facebook and other social media sites…
It’s amazing! When you can take the virtual relationships to another level… face to face… it’s great! I believe that is the end goal.. to meet people who have been connecting with you virtually.
Now what I learned in Vegas…
…other than experiencing Earthquake for the first time in my life…
oh my God… it shook my entire being for half a second… literally… and I felt totally insignificant as a human being… that was something else..
Anyway — Vegas taught me many things, and one of the things that I learned in Vegas is this…
There are creators, and then there are consumers.
Some of the world’s best creators and entertainers end up in Vegas.
People who create things so that the masses can consume..
So my topic today is… are you a consumer or are you a creator?
Truth is… We are both creators and consumers…
But what do you think of yourself as…at the core? A consumer or a creator?
How much time do you spend thinking and doing things that are more “consumer oriented” Vs. “creator oriented”?
When we think of our success, are our goals and aspirations more about…
wanting a bigger house, a better car… extra money for shopping… which is consumer oriented goals..
OR, do you really enjoy the creation process?
In other words, when you set your goals and aspirations, do you set it in a way that you can consume more…. like I want a bigger house, a better car, a grander lifestyle…
OR, do you set goals on how to create wonderful..?
I think we will have all of that, the bigger house, and a grand lifestyle….when we are at a place in our life where we feel self-worth in ourselves and what we are doing.
I think we are much happier and content with our lives when we are creating things…
Truly successful people who are fulfilled in their life and in their being, and enjoy what they are doing — they are not excited by consumer goals…. they are actually excited about their creation process.
They are not excited about that fancy car, or fancy watch…or whatever… they are excited about the process of creating.
What we need to understand is that we are ALL creators of our life… and creativity is in ALL of us.
If you’ve ever told yourself that you are not a creative person, it’s a destructive lie that you’ve been telling yourself.
Because in reality there is NOTHING to create…
Everything that we’ve ever thought of, ideas, products, opportunities…lifestyle… it’s was all there in the universe. We just tuned into whatever our desires are and co-created it with the Universe.
So, existentially speaking, nobody is a sole creator of anything… they just happened to put together what the universe already provided.. and called it their own.
So that should really take away that doubt, that you may be having… that YOU ARE NOT a CREATIVE PERSON.
That’s really Bullshit!
You are the most creative person in your life… because you are creating it.
Anyway, what I am trying to get at here is… to ask yourself whether you are thinking along the lines of CREATIVE GOALS or CONSUMER GOALS?
When you start a business, or trying to grow a business, do you LOVE the PROCESS?
Or are you solely focused on the END RESULTS — the money, the lifestyle… and all the consumer stuff?
Creating is happiness and you can never get that kind of blissful feeling and happiness with just consuming….
Sometimes, when we have already established in our belief system that we are not a creative person, we tend to believe that for the rest of our lives…
You have to understand that CREATIVITY is everywhere… It’s a different dimension that we have not trained our mind to — we just have to tune into it everyday, so that it will flow through us.
So… If you don’t feel creative in your business… do this, take a few days off and do something creative… create a painting… Art is the dimension to awaken your creative side.
Music is great, but create music instead of listening to it… Create a piece of art… etc.
By doing this exercise for a few days, you will AWAKEN your creative side of the brain and you will start getting creative in every other part of your life!
The creation process is the most fulfilling and happiest you’ll ever find in your life….. So make it your goal to find your creativity and enjoy it.
That’s my message today!
Have an amazing and a creative day!
