Primarily the people of this world, on a cognitive level, fall into two groups. The first group comprises of people who are happy in what they do and would keep on following the conventions and doing the same job over and over again. The second group consists of people who have the habit of pondering over the thing and this pondering of theirs leads them to think out of the box and thus giving birth to creativity.
This classification of people into ordinary and creative people is not on the basis of their genes, rather it’s on the basis of their thinking that people get categorized into a particular group. Therefore, it is all a matter of unlocking the genius within us and keeping it in the same way to ensure creativity.
What Is a Genius?
The thing with creative people is that they have never been able to define creativity or how it comes to them. For some creativity is an invisible being, for some it is Divine and for some, it is something within themselves that speaks with them in unknown and unforeseen circumstances giving the thoughts, ideas, and visions. The ideology that creativity comes from something within is what we now days call ‘genius’. Therefore, it is important for every one of us to stay in contact with this part of our body and make it help us become creative.
How Creative People Communicate With The Innate Genius
The thing that happens the most with fewer ordinary people and all the creative people is that when they wish to come in contact with the genius part of themselves, it stops responding. This lack of communication with the genius part or not being able to unlock is what causes the desperation in creative people and this desperation gives birth to all the gloominess for which all the creative people are known, whether they are artists, musicians, painters, writers, poets, entrepreneurs or anyone from the creativity league. When the genius stops communicating with them they feel at sea in whatever they are doing, they aren’t able to write prose, the metaphors of poetry don’t come to them, the business idea seems unrealistic, thus the whole purpose of their life ceases. It is at this point of time in their lives that they feel helpless and have no vision, thus they fall prey to drinking, loneliness, and in severe cases madness. It is at this point in time when they require something anything that would help them unlock the genius.
The one thing that can help unlock the genius at such phases in the life of creative people is perseverance. If you are a poet and you are stuck on the last verse of your poem, then instead of being stuck there and putting everything on hold to make that verse come true, what you can do is keep on writing verses without worrying about the fact that they are not coming from your genius self. Thus, eventually, there will be a time when the verses will start flowing and coming from the genius part of your mind. Similarly, if you are an entrepreneur and are stuck at the creative part of launching a business, then keep on trying all that you can do and don’t have any doubts take birth in your mind, eventually, the genius part will open to you and you will be able to get through with creativity. Therefore, to unlock the genius in you, all you require is perseverance. The more consistent you are in your efforts, the more the chances of genius part of you opening to you and unlocking the doors of creativity.
