“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” – Einstein
What is it? And how do you know if you’ve got it?
It seems we’ve drawn a somewhat murky line in the sand when it comes to what constitutes creativity and what doesn’t.
In this video, I dive into the elusive nature of Creativity, breaking it down and proving that it’s not as elusive as we like to think.
Creativity is what happens when you embrace your natural childlike curiosity and ditch your developed need to act like an “adult” and always do things “right”.
Let me break it down for you because it really is as simple as a first grade math equation:
Add childhood sense of wonder, subtract grown up fear of failure and you’re back to the core: you.
That’s right, you are creative.

“When you examine the lives of the most influential people who have ever walked among us, you discover one thread that winds through them all. They have been aligned first with their spiritual nature and only then with their physical selves.” – Albert Einstein
“The tragedy of experiencing ourselves as apart from everyone else is that this delusion becomes a prison.” -Albert Einstein
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us “the universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
When Albert Einstein was on his death bed surrounded by friends they asked him, “Al, is there anything else you would like to tell us before you go?” And he responded, “Yes. I’d really like to know if the universe is friendly. Because if it is, 90% of our reactions are useless.”
