My experience has been that time and time again the thing that showers my life with the experience of abundance is my creativity. Not the validation of others, not what the government or markets are doing - but my own creative vision.
I love the quote from the Gospel of Thomas where Jesus is quoted as saying "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."
This principle has proven true for me time and time again. The goal is to trust your creative visions, to take daily and consistent action towards them and to HANG IN THERE. It's pretty much guaranteed that RIGHT BEFORE you are about to succeed things will get really tough. It's called "The Dip".
You were born a creative being. You have talents. You were born to thrive. If you don't believe this to be true for you chances are that belief stems from early childhood when a parent, teacher or friend told you that you weren't creative. It's BS - everyone has creativity to bring forth. Get in touch with your creativity. It might be art, numbers, music, business or producing. You can be a creative business person or doctor. Creativity isn't limited to "starving artists", it's a quality that ALL of us have been given by our Maker.
Follow your creative vision with trust. Start now.
"It seems to me that people have vast potential. Most people can do extraordinary things if they have the confidence or take the risks. Yet most people don't. They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever."
