Creative Genes Vs Work Jeans

“There’s no talent here, there is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we all are human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top. I’m not talented, I’m obsessed.”

 

 

It’s really been a long time and I haven’t posted anything on my website. But you know what? You people have been constantly giving me the motivation to write, write a lot. Thank you for pushing me every time I feel like, I don’t belong to this community of writers.

After reading a lot of articles and blogs on the subjects hustle science, neuroplasticity and brain engineering, one of the biggest myth’s I had was broken. I have always been of the opinion that creativity is something that you either have, or you don’t. That, some people are just born creative.

 

 

I don’t believe that for a moment.

What I believe in now is, your thoughts have to be continuously entertained and channelized which makes your vision more clear, well developed and much easier for your thoughts to deliver.

It has actually been a year of working, here on my website. I still remember the first blog post I wrote, the second one as well and subsequently, each one and you want to know how? My obsession for writing, reading and making people educate has helped me enormously. It’s only easier now because I have spent hours reading, writing and developing thoughts along these channels that I’m obsessed with.

The ‘creative genes’ doesn’t exist. The ‘work jean’does.

I consider myself a hustler, a workaholic, the person that doesn’t rely on talent. I’m a writer and educator, first and foremost. I’m obsessed and I wasn’t born creative. I have developed this obsession and now, channelizing it with my vision.

Creativity comes with a deeply-rooted connection with your childhood and I believe, if you can simply connect with your inner child, you will eventually, stop worrying about the results that you expect. You will simply work to become better out of pure enjoyment.

 

 

Doing such a thing is prominent, the first step towards creating something which will not even your life but perhaps, other lives as well. I just want people to fall in love with the damn process and stop discounting the creators as gifted.

Everyone has been born with something, but it’s your consistent and persistent actions that will really take your creativity to another level.

Please Don’t Settle!

Hey there, my lovely people! So, I know I’m super late this time in delivering a blog post. My Apology. Apparently, was just in a mind block and due to the same reason, was not able to write any content.

I didn’t start The Parallel Edit with the intention of turning it into a business. It began as a Free WordPress Blog in 2017 and that was meant to keep me inspired during a difficult time in my life. It’s not that I have been writing to entertain anyone here but to make sure, how can I get that motivation while living in the ‘demotivated phase of my life’.

I have been enjoying creating content that has seemed to resonate with so many people over all this time and that’s what I want you people to learn – to do something which you actually love and not like.

Don’t settle for less, don’t crave for more.

You know I’m just like you people. Gets easily bored, a risk taker, always colours outside the lines, think with my heart, make a lot of mistakes, hate the rules, believe in working independently but the most highlighting of them all, is I believe in dreaming big.

Create a good picture for a better living.

Start a process. Analyze your growth for the first 6 months. Maybe it won’t work out. Maybe it’s not going to go your way. Maybe, It’s just going to be another stupid idea you try, that doesn’t catch out. Maybe everyone will laugh at your failure but just follow this one simple principle and that is – “Please Don’t Settle!”

 

 

Think about it? How much better you would be or precisely, your life would be if you could change the conversation going in your head?

Someone close to me once said, as you get older and wiser as you go on your own journey, you will have to be your own mother, your own father, your own angel and your own teacher and after all this time I have found this true when it comes to communicating with myself.

Settling in failure can never give you a living you have always wanted to build. You have to keep moving, keep grinding in order to find some place and some light in this beautiful world.

Thereby, sharing my few personal tips to stay motivated and these are as follows-

  • Accomplish one thing in the morning, big or small
  • Use the momentum from it to go on.
  • Remind yourself why you’re alive!
  • Make a game out of your challenges
  • Take a photo of the best part that happened in your day
  • Talk to yourself in your free time. Communicating with yourself is necessary!
  • Recognize and show off your progress.
  • Celebrate other people’s success.
  • Be kind, fair and unafraid to speak up!

When you’re faced with a creativity block, what’s your strategy to get innovating? I value your feedback and don’t hesitate in writing me down with your strategies. Would surely love to read them up. Email me with your questions by tapping on the contact category.

Have a great week ahead!

Cheers to your success!

Trust your Gut!

Hello, my lovely people!

So, It’s the second weekend of this new year and I hope you people aren’t actually wasting your time sitting in the blankets and eating dry fruits. So, how was your all over performance for this week? Analyse and evaluate. There’s no looking back and It’s the right time to configure yourself!

What do you infer from the title ‘Trust your Gut!’?

Intuition has always played the most decisive role in the making or breaking of any individual. It’s the intuition which can lead you to the road you may not even think of but the only condition lies is the ability of a person to trust upon his gut feelings and accordingly produce the desired action. The one who knows how to trust his intuition will surely never fail in his life and will always be on the winning end and the one, ignoring will have to face the consequences later in their life. So, in which category do you belong?

It is, therefore, very important to learn how to listen to and trust your gut. Don’t worry I’ll teach you the right tactic to perform if you’re finding yourself in such a condition.

When it comes to decision-making, Knowledge is Power. But what about the knowledge that comes from an unconventional source? Trusting your gut is an old age advice since your instincts are usually right.

The quirky urge, a funny tingle, that little voice in your head. These are your gut feelings talking to you but the question is, what are they telling you? Should you listen to them? And, the answer is a big yes!

Intuition is knowing something without you being able to explain how you have arrived at the conclusion. These messages which you get from inside can be just silent warnings or reminders and in retrospect, may be right or even wrong. Those intuitions which are related to your own thoughts and emotions may end up being partially correct or even completely wrong. But, trust me you can learn the technique to figure out or identify when they are more likely to be correct.

How can you get in touch with your intuition?

  • Firstly, get the biggest distraction out that is your cell phones. Keep them aside for a while and go for a walk. Enjoy the fresh air.
  • Be quiet for a while.
  • Meditation has proven to be the best method to interact with your own body mechanism. Prefer doing it daily!
  • Tune in to how these gut instincts show up in your body.

When you actually follow these tips, believe me, you’ll exaggerate all the negative vibes from your body, you’ll pay much more attention to what’s going on around you and moreover, you’ll be able to connect with others.

So, now focusing on how can you strengthen your intuition?

  • Meditate daily and you’ll find yourself in peace.
  • Pay close attention to your dreams.
  • Get much more creative. Spend quality time on improving yourself, Self-development and yeah, It’s important to enjoy what’s going on around you. Trust me, it will introduce all the positive vibes in you and you may find a change in your mindset which is definitely a good thing.
  • It’s very important to escape from your daily routines. Try out new thing often whether it may be from your point of interest or whatever.

So, always trust your gut sense, it knows everything even before head has figured out. These are the silent voices which don’t use words so listen. Listen carefully!

So, I would like to end this discussion with a note –

Follow your Intuition. Be smart enough, Be brave, always tell the truth and always believe in not taking up any shit.

That’s all for today. I hope you had a nice time reading this article.

See you in the next one!
