My message is simple! Many people have creative potential that has not been translated into creative ideas and objects and eventually turned into success in their own lives!
These people are grouped into three categories:
- The first group is of those who do not even know they have what it takes to be creative. They think it’s an attribute for only those who are known to be genius, extraordinary, or sometimes weird.
- The second group is of those who believe that they are creative but all they do is to find somebody to blame for the fact that they failed to translate this potential into tangible creative objects. They never find a minute to enter the creativity workshop and embark on creative production.
- The third group is of those who have discovered their creative potential, occasionally translated it into creative ideas and objects, but lost the fight with different creativity killers, and later decided to give up and compliant to the status quo.
How excited to have the book ‘Drums of Success’ published! This book, in addition to being useful to anyone who wants to understand the dynamics of creativity and its association to our everyday life; targets those who would like to discover their creative potential, put it to work to produce creative ideas and objects, and turn them into successful careers and businesses.
I may not be able to cover all 224 pages of Drums of Success with all its inspiring anecdotes and life examples as well as the different tools given to you that you may use in your journey to success. However, I feel like revealing to you the steps that you shall make in turning your creative potential into success.
Part I: Creative Potential
Step #1: Assess your situation:
What makes you view the world the way you do? When, how and why did you lose trust in the world and its people? How did you develop the idea that you are not allowed to be yourself? How and when did you develop the idea that you are not allowed to make mistakes. Go back to the past and mentally undo the negative marks you have drawn on your brain as a result of some of your unpleasant experiences. Start fresh and be ready to rediscover yourself.
Step #2: Discover your mental abilities:
In the quest to re-discovering yourself, you will understand that you have more abilities than you put at work. You will learn that you do not need to fit in people’s definitions of intelligence that are usually not very right. You will understand your level of intelligence and how it is translated into different mental abilities.
Step #3: Understand your personality:
It’s all about how you think, feel and act. Your personality traits are in part genetic and in the other part they have been environmentally affected. By understanding your personality traits you shall be able to emphasize those that push you towards creativity and control the behaviours that may be as a result of the personality traits you want to keep tolerable.
Step #4: Define your motivation factors:
Understand your interests and the beauty of doing what you are interested in. Understand that strong desire you feel to do what you do or want to do. Understand the needs you try to satisfy when you do what you do. This understanding shall lead you to making decisions to change your situation; put your abilities at work and adopt behaviours that shall lead to success.
Part II: Creativity Workshop
Step #5: Formulate your life purpose and set your goals.
After understanding yourself and making sure that you are going to change your situation, now it’s time for you to make decisions about what it is you want to accomplish in life, your ultimate, long-term and short-term goals.
Step #6: Draw your strategies:
Now that you understand what you want to achieve, it’s time to put in place the stones you will step on to get to what you want to accomplish in life and the goals you want to achieve.
Step #7: Embark on creative production:
It will all be real and actual when you will start to tap into your creative potential to generate ideas, to engage in a creative process to produce creative objects, and finally supply the world with products of your creativity.
Part III: Success and Sustainability
Step #8: Fight with creativity killers:
When you will start getting out of the box, there are so many people that shall pull you back in. You should know how to handle these people in such a way that you benefit from the relationships you have with them without jeopardizing your decision and ability to get out of the box and turn your creative potential into success.
Step #9: Celebrate your successes
Congratulations! You are on the journey! Keep moving! Learn to celebrate your successes. Celebrate achievement of goals related to your self-realization, social connectedness and social responsibility. Celebrate your progress!
Step #10: Put your signature on the future:
It may be the signature of excellence, the signature of inspiration or signature of purpose.
