You Are Already a Millionaire â€” Your
Creativity Makes It So
In my view, Mark Twain expressed a great deal of wisdom with these words:
â€œThousands of geniuses live and die undiscovered â€” either by themselves or
by others.â€� The fact that so many people havenâ€™t discovered they are geniuses
is a major reason why they toil away at jobs they hate. As is to be expected,
most corporations arenâ€™t about to help their employees realize they are
geniuses for fear of losing them.
By geniuses, I refer to individuals with the potential to make a difference
in this world if they ever get around to developing and using their creativity.
Unfortunately, most people have allowed organizations, educational
institutions, and society to suppress their creativity for so long that they donâ€™t
realize how creative they can be. Truth be told, most people can be more
creative and, in turn, more successful.
In this regard, there are two principles for creative success â€” one general
and one specific. The general principle is that virtually everyone has the ability
to be more creative and accomplish extraordinary things in this world. The
specific principle is that almost everyone has volunteered to be exempt from
the general principle. Put another way, few people spend time, effort, or
thought cultivating their creative ability, which is an essential element for
achieving real success in life.
The majority of adults donâ€™t get halfway to reaching their full creative
potential due to their self-imposed limitations. Sadly, many people have
suppressed both their desire and their ability to be creative for so long that they
think they are naturally uncreative. You may be one of them.
How many times have you said to yourself or others, â€œIf I only had the
creative ability to pull that off?â€� All told, each one of us has greater
inventiveness than we exhibit in ordinary life, but most of us are unaware of it,
or refrain from using it. Again, there is no heavier burden than great potential
that we are squandering. To deny our creativity is to lie to the world and, worse,
to lie to ourselves.
Creative thinking, if diligently practiced, allows each and every one of us
to accomplish feats that appear to be unattainable miracles to those who donâ€™t
practice it. Creativity combined with action is a simple, easy, and surefire way
to achieve health, wealth, and happiness in our lives; it is also an invaluable
tool to help us experience harmony in this fast-moving and constantly
changing world in which we live.
If you are serious about attaining true success in this rapidly changing
world, start with the premise that from both a financial and a personal point of
view, your most valuable asset is not your job, your house, or your bank
account. Plain and simple, itâ€™s your creative ability. Your creative mind has
great value because it can solve problems.
All employers have problems that they pay employees to solve. In the
same vein, individuals have various problems, such as needing something to
entertain them, that they pay others to solve. The value you place on your
creative mind should be at least one million dollars because you can use it to
generate many times this amount over your lifetime. This makes creativity the
poor personâ€™s wealth. Indeed, when you list the monetary value of your
personal assets, the grand total should make you a millionaire simply by
including the value of your creative ability.
You, too, can joyfully earn a decent living if you develop your creative side
and in doing so provide an imaginative product or service that people want. In
fact, itâ€™s harder to suppress your creativity than to use it. Everyone has the
deep-seated desire to produce something innovative. In everyone there is a
creative person wanting to break out and make a difference in this world.
All things considered, your creativity is your biggest asset. Put another
way, you are already a millionaire â€” your creativity makes it so! You must
recognize the latent genius within and stay in the habit of being innovative if
you want to attain true success in your life. To maximize the use of your
creative mind is to maximize the career and financial aspects of your life.
