Okay, so I know many people love to claim they are not creative (which I believe to be a flat-out lie), but even if you truly believe you don’t have a creative bone in your body, I still think you should watch this video. Maybe some of it won’t directly apply to what you want to do in life, but the sentiment is this video is so amazing. “If you want to be something, start being it.” So many of us have some notion of what we could do or be somewhere down the line, but we never actually get around to doing it. It’s like the abstract idea that maybe someday we could have it is good enough, until one day even the idea is so painful, we just let it go.
Everyone has genius inside of them. As best-selling author Orrin Woodward loves to quote, “People are born geniuses and taught to be idiots.” We all have the ability to be great, yet so often we settle for mediocrity. I love this video so much because it puts it so plainly: if you want to be something, you should start being it. Not tomorrow, but today.
