I know I’ve already uploaded a video on this same topic, but I can’t stress this enough. I really want this to seep in through you, it doesn’t matter if you haven’t seen that video, I don’t want views, I wanted to convey this to you, that’s it.
Ok, so today’s topic is : LIVE TO INSPIRE CREATIVES
Let’s begin with “INSPIRE” first. What is Inspiration? What is it like to getting inspired?
According to me, Inspiration is a sense of “Awe”, that you feel when you see the beauty in nature or an artwork. Basically whenever you wonder, WOW, How beautiful is it? Inspiration is eventual. Your brain tends to re-create that sense of “Awe”-ness because it don’t want that to end and also wants something portable that you can show it others and share the same sense of Awe-ness.
As an artist, it is his or her duty to see the beauty in nature and share the same with people.
So there are two processes involved in this entire loop. The artist is inspired by nature and then he tends to create an art and through that inspire others. Simply said, Getting inspired and Inspiring others are the two processes.
How do we get in to these two processes? The answer is in what I call “The Magic Cycle Of Inspiration”. This cycle has 3 components – CREATE, SHARE and INSPIRE.
The magic part of this cycle is that no matter from which point or where you start in this cycle, you end getting inspired and eventually inspiring others.
CREATE – When you create, it is obvious that you tend to share. And when you share, you as well as the person at the receiving end of what you’ve created are inspired.
SHARE – If you are not an artist or if you are a person who do not choose to Create, No problem. You can always share someone else’s work to be part of the magic cycle of inspiration. By the way, the fact that you shared something itself says that you were inspired by that which you shared. And when you share, you are trying to inspire others like who’ve been. And that is so eventual right!
INSPIRE – When you see a cartoon on a newspaper and suddenly you get flash of an idea to write a story, you are inspired by that cartoon. Then you will tend to create, share and eventually inspire others. And you also get inspired when you see other people’s opinions/comments seeing your inspiring work.
So basically, when you CREATE and SHARE, Inspiration is an eventual process. But don’t try to control inspiration as it is not in your control, take control of how much and what you create and share.
Now let’s come to the “CREATIVES” part. Who are creatives? Everybody is a creative, it’s just that some have not tapped into their creative side yet. I’ve arranged the sentence as “LIVE TO INSPIRE CREATIVES” because if we say live to inspire everyone, we end up reaching no-one.
So all I ask is this, INTENT TO INSPIRE! LIVE TO INSPIRE CREATIVES! Be a part of “THE MAGIC CYCLE OF INSPIRATION”
