Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Creativity Requires Courage

Creativity Requires Courage

  

Motivational Power Quote

 

Creativity Requires Courage

 

"Creativity requires the courage

to let go of certainties."

Erich Fromm

  

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Creativity requires courage.  

Doing what we do is a habit; we have created a safe zone that we live and work in.  Day to day we are in a comfortable routine.   

If we would continue doing what we are currently doing we will continue to yield the same results.   

We are in an area of certainty is our actions and may not want to risk change or venturing in a new direction.  

To change our results requires courage. 

To creativity use our personal power will take a leap of faith and courage to move away from certainties.

Once we move away from certainly we ignite our creativity; we create forward momentum open new doors and new opportunities.  

Let go of certainty and grasp your creativity.

Lou,

I think getting out of your comfort zone is a good thing,  It encourages growth.  I also think there are some really good things to make habits.

I don't seem to have a problem with creativity.  I seem to have a problem with getting people to maintain my creativity.

Dear Lou,

What great advice. You are right you have to stretch to be able to grow.

Michael Jackson had to believe in himself and his creativity to do what he did. I think can be very lonely, being an original, but there's no other way to be except authentic. That really does take courage.

Creativity is liberating.  However, there are many that will fight to the death to keep the status quo!  I know this because I have the scars to prove it!  Yet, I am determined and will continue on to do those things that I am passionate about.

Hi Mara

I agree with you Michael Jackson believed in himself and his ability and I also agree that he appealed to very lonely. As famous as he was he missed his childhood.

Another awesome quote.

I think Einstein knew this very well.  There are many, many fewer certainties in life than we think there are.

Posted by Mark MacKenzie over 10 years ago

Hi Mark

What many times appears to certainties is an allusion.

Thanks for your comments.

Lou,

Being creative is key to any business.... As they say, "think outside the box". It's fun and one can get amazing results when they reach for "DIFFERENT".
