Techniques To Personality Creativity

Sometimes, you perceive of your personality as someone who would not know creativity even if it knocked you on the head with a sledgehammer. And sometimes, you just come to the realization that you and creativity just would not mix. It is like oil and water for you and creativity, or so you think.

You must not give up. If you imagine feeling the wrath of Zeus every time you need to be creative, do not put a lid on it. All you need is a technique, a creativity technique.

Creativity techniques make your world a better place to live in. But just like everyone common world, these techniques also have bad points. Think of them as a giant tool box, with all you might ever need to build your own house. It has lots and lots of tools but you just have to pick the right one.

The first technique would be the basic model. With this model, you have to think of what it is that really hinders you on your personality path to creativity, and jot it down in non technical formal. Show what you wrote to people who have never experienced that kind of problem and ask them for ideas and for their opinions. You can also recommend to them thinking on it overnight or for a few days.

Once they speak up, take down any thoughts and ideas they air out regarding the "real" problem and any solutions that are of high potential. It is very essential that what they expect of your ability to utilize their ideas are put in a realistic perspective. You can develop or re-interpret the ideas they gave you to make them more workable for you.

But, of course, if you use ideas of other people, you cannot just use them just like that. You have to give a responsive feedback to whoever helped you to show that what they did is highly valued, appreciated and of productive use. If your helper receives a positive response of how his or her ideas were put to good use, his or her personality will be very glad and will accommodate your needs again.

Another creativity technique is the face-to-face networking model. This technique can only be workable if you are sure that your relationship with the one who helps you is built on trust. For instance, when your helper offers ideas that are somewhat naive, you still use these ideas to your advantage and not dismiss them immediately.

However, when worse comes to worse, some ideas can sometimes be too out of place that you and your helper need to talk on it. How could you do that? Simple. You just start a conversation at an informal personality face-to-face meeting at some bar or wherever it is that you would prefer.

If you do decide to use this personality approach, you must have non directive listening skills so that your helper's enthusiasm and interest are maintained. Show him or her that whatever it is that he or she is saying is being considered and well-thought of all the time, because if you do not do so, he or she will forget about offering creative ideas for you and you will find yourself in a muddy heap once again.

Basically, you do not have to carry the burden of creativity on your shoulders. There are lots of creativity techniques out there, you just have to know how to use them more effectively.

How to Become A Billionaire

To paraphrase Steve Martin, it is easy to earn a billion dollars tax free. All you have to do is get yourself a billion dollars and then don’t pay the tax. How will anyone ever know?

Now I don’t want to speak out against paying taxes but we can talk about getting yourself a billion dollars. The first thing you need to know is that it is a darned near impossible dream. There are over six billion people on Earth and about seven hundred of them are billionaires. True, the odds increase if you count their spouses and children, but still it is clearly not an easy thing to achieve.

When thinking about just how extreme a task this is think about the easiest way to make money. Stealing. That is, after all, what the joke implies. Now think about where you could possibly steal a billion dollars from. What could you steal and sell for a billion dollars? Not a heck of a lot comes to mind. Really, it’s that much money.

But it has been done and therefore can be done. The key is to find your niche and make it work for you as best as it can. Further more, you need to find something that is no one else’s niche. The more people who want to achieve billionaire status the way you want to achieve it, the less likely it would happen.

Take software for instance. A decade ago that was the key. Microsoft made some billionaires as did Google. The market is still very vast but it is also flooded and the chances of finding something unique enough to capture that much of the market is no longer very likely.

The same is true for the retail world. When Walmart started up it was a relatively unique way of shopping. Its business plan was solid and consumers were very much into the attitude of the store so much so that it is still growing. Stores that have copied that format may have done well, but they haven’t churned out many billionaire owners.

If you’re like me and are finding it discouraging to come up with that killer original idea you can always keep your eyes open for other people’s. There have been a lot of successful investors over the years who have latched on to the right idea and took it for a ride to billionaire status. Some are able to spot something before it becomes a shooting trend while others make fortunes by investing in secure, non trendy, traditional stocks that go up, though slower.

I think the best idea for most of us is to aim to be multi millionaires first. Achieve this through a good selection of ever growing solid investments on the stock market and in real estate. Once you have secured yourself a hundred million or so then turning it in to a billion shouldn’t be much trouble at all.

Are You Willing To Change Your Mind Set?

Have you ever experienced the habit of beating yourself up with guilt, worry, fear, even protecting yourself with fear, disapproving of yourself, feeling insecure, lacking control in your life, and having to figure everything out?

Are you willing to change your mind set, to get off the treadmill of negative thinking? Are you ready to learn how to trust yourself and others, to experience approving of yourself, feel safe, secure, to be in control of your life and have all the peace and happiness you deserve?

By discharging these negative feelings, you will not only increase the happiness in your life, but everything else will get better too! Money, health, relationships, looks, you name it!

The mind works just like a computer. It stores data, both positive and negative. Simply, you may require changing the way you are thinking, as this is the Law of Attraction. The simplest definition of this law is "like attracts like." other definitions include: You get what you think about, whether wanted or unwanted.

Whatever you are consciously or unconsciously focusing on in your life, you will attract more to you. Your inner world defines your outer physical experience.

Your subconscious mind is filled with beliefs and values which unconsciously direct your experiences. It is your inner world. Your conscious mind is the only tool that you have to change the content of your subconscious mind.

When we have awoken from the "dream like state", our purpose is to take control of both your conscious and unconscious minds and to focus them both on what you would like to experience from life.

To master the ‘Universal Law of Attraction’ is the most powerful force in the universe. It is simple in concept, yet requires some practice.

Secrets about True Success

Contrary to popular opinion, real success is not measured by the amount of our possessions. Simply stated, the truth is that real success -- ultimately the only success -- is determined by how much we are in actual possession of ourselves. And by the light of this great fact of life, we can also see that the person who fears the loss of what he thinks is his success has not truly succeeded. Why is this true? The individual who lives with secret self-defining fears is not a self-possessing person but rather a person possessed, often pushed and punished by his fears.

To see the truth of these findings is to realize the need for a whole new way to succeed in life. And to come upon this new order of success calls to us to search out a totally different path through life, a new path we can climb only by calling on a whole new set of higher actions. We can begin our ascent to securing real success with the following new action:

We must begin the inner work of consciously proving to ourselves that there is nothing to fear, instead of allowing our fears to push us into a never-ending series of fearful actions. This suggested new action makes more sense the more we gain insight into our present notion of success; for if we look closely, we can see that contained right within it, although unseen at present, is the fear of failure. The real fear behind this idea of failing is our unconscious fear of losing our familiar, confident sense of self.

As long as what we think of as being our "success" in life harbors the secret fear of our self somehow being diminished by the loss of this same external source, then our sense of self does not belong to us. Under these conditions we are little more than unsuspecting victims subject to every vagrant wind of change that blows through the world of our enterprise... not a very pleasant or promising prospect, is it? Of course not. But it doesn't have to be this way. We can learn life's secret lessons about the nature of real success, and follow them all the way to the Real Life that is their source.
