Katie Arnold Ratliff is a writer. But once he did not write anything for many years. Why? His professor told him that unless you feel pain, your writing will not die. You will be able to write well only when the pain will feel"


And Katy tied the knot with her professor. She used to respect him a lot, so his statement was quite valuable for Katy. But Katy should not trust him that much because her logic stopped Katy from writing. Katy loved writing. Writing it made one feel happy and satisfying. But he soon realized that the professor's advice was wrong.


Katy started writing again, she wrote a book which became a big hit. But if she does not trust anyone blindly, then it does not take much time to show her creativity. There are many people whose story is similar to Katy. So much of the creativity inside them gets wasted by coming in the wrong people. To be creative, you do not have to go through a painful process, it is necessary. Do not think that the work that is not hurting you, has no value. Trusting pain is wrong. Too much pen also starts killing the person inside.


So who should we trust? On pen or on love? On whom to trust, only you will dissect it. What is the reason that so many great artists have committed suicide and there are many other moving ghosts. Why? Because he too made a mistake, he wasted his time on wrong things, giving value only to pen and traveling. Have you ever thought that the one above will give you such creativity that ruins you? If we believe that our inspiration is somewhere near then we will never feel lonely.


When you trust in inspiration, she also trusts you. But sometimes we also get inspired by some misunderstanding. If you are a person of this type, then raise a helpful misunderstanding. Take a stubbornness that the desire to become creativity lies in your DNA. Your creativity will remain the same and will always be with you. So no matter how bad the situation is, you should be sure that your creativity will be present in you forever. So the more you trust yourself, the more you will become creative.

PERMISSION


It is in your hands to take the decision of living the creative life, so it does not matter what you thought and used to do before. No matter how strict or rules your parents have been, whether they always think what people will say. If you have been taught to sit quietly, what has to happen will happen by itself, then forget this thing. Everyone is creative. Creativity has been in this world ever since our ancestors have lived on this earth.


The history of art is more than four thousand years old. Talking about art, art is a divers subject. Why? Because there is a magic inside everyone, something special and precious. You already have creativity, just need to release it. As long as you are alive, you will remain creative. There is no limit to any special class of creativity society. It is present inside all of us. And this is the permission you want. Creativity inside you is the ticket for which you can start your creative life from today.


Eileen is a mother, her children have grown up. She does her own business which is going well. She is a well-behaved lady. But Eileen has a hobby, loves to get her tattooed. The same thing comes in her mind as soon as she wakes up in the morning, "I want to get tattooed" Now you may ask her "What type of tattoo?" So she will tell you "I don't know, when I get the tattoo done then I will disguise it or from the tattoo maker Ask Lungi ”. Now you will think that Eileen should not act like children at this age. But when she was asked by him, she simply smiled and said, "We are all guests in this world for a few days. So why don't I fulfill all my hobbies before I die? "


So this is the eject point of our life. As long as we are alive, then we enjoy our every moment. Everything will end one day, so why not live your life openly, a creative life. So there should be a strong sense in us, to live our life in our own way. That is, you want to get what you desire. It is not like that where you feel your right over everything. Only those things that you really enjoy.


It is difficult to get out of your comfort zone without creative entitlement. Doubting on our own, fearing that we are of no use. In our mind, a voice constantly resonates. We are of no use, we cannot do anything '. Creative entitlement means that we respond to this voice of our mind and say that there is a power inside us'. Perhaps you will be afraid to think that other people have also done this work. But actually you have done the rest of the work.


There were many writers who dared to write on themes that Shakespeare had explored before them. The work that you have done before. If you try them, there is no harm. It is also possible that you hate others. If you do it in such an authentic way, then it will become original by itself. When you go to school, what you learn there, how much you learn depends on many things. But the most depends on how committed and dedicated you are.


One of the greatest painters in the world was a teacher in the big famous university. But he did not have any advanced degree. His dedication to painting made him a master of this art. Once an Indian filmmaker wrote a letter to his role model. He wrote a letterHe mentioned all the feelings, pain and discomfort. He had a lot of money. His role model, who was a German director, wrote his letter, "Stop complaining". The world is not your debtor. This may sound a bit rood and discouraging, but it is a bitter truth.


If you want a creative life then don't complain. If you are not successful in your creativity, then the world will not stop. No one will be harmed except you. Because you are doing this not for others but for yourself.


PERSISTENCE


We all have a dream. Some people keep a dream in their heart from childhood. But one thing needs to be understood that dreams have no age. You can fulfill your dreams in any age. Whether you are 20 or 90, there is no age limit to live a creative life.


An Old Lady was 'Winfred' in the 1990s. On his 90th birthday, Winfred held a wild party. He had friendship with people of all ages. Some of his friends were even 20 years old. She spent her entire life roaming around the world with her scientist husband. However, his Hajband was no longer in this world. So one day someone asked Winfred, "Which is the best book you have read till now?", Then the friend said that he does not remember any book because every book he read, he felt important .. Yes but ten years Earlier, she had read a book which changed her life.


Just think, a 90 year old woman is telling you that a book changed her life when she was 80 years old? Our life can also be changed when we want. You can start your creative life even in the old age. When we try to achieve something repeatedly, but we cannot do it, there is a great frustration. Many people give up thinking that maybe this thing is not in their luck.


Great Poet Seamus Heaney once said that you cannot write or expose such a Poem that it will be the best or the greatest Poem. It takes time to be great. Every good thing takes time to mature. Your creativity is a reminder for you that teaches you to improve continuously. Living a creative life is a work in itself. And your biggest responsibility is to handle your appointments and frustrations. Because it is not your setbox but part of your journey.


No one becomes successful overnight. Or cannot make successful achievements one after the other. So this is what we have to learn, to manage the gap between success and disbursement. Life is like a sandwich. Now no matter how much the sandwich is useless, you will definitely like it. Just as women dare to have children despite morning sickness and vomiting and are pregnant, even when you are skateboarding, you already know that you can fall or be badly injured. But you do not stop trying.


We take risks everyday in our life. So how much risk you can take for something depends on the extent to which you want to get that thing. There was a writer who was starting his writing. Although his writing could not be published anywhere. He always used to complain that he has to make a career in writing. But nothing was happening as he thought. He had become quite frustrated. He wanted to make his life like a sandwich that has all his favorite things. But it only seemed that writing was not his passion. He cannot take both sides of the coin. Even if everything ends but some people still do not give up? Why?


Because their passion gives them courage. Have you ever seen a person who, despite doing a full-time job, takes care of the family and can make time for his lover? So maybe this person would meet his lover during his lunch time. That is, whatever free time he gets, he wins it for himself. Because for someone you love, you take some time or the other. And on such occasions your creativity is released. You do not need any perfect time or place to find your happiness. Perhaps you are wasting time by running behind perfection.


If you run after perfection, you will never be able to fulfill your dreams because you will always be waiting for the perfect time. Are you persistent? Can you handle fellers with success? Until you become a persistent, you will not be able to live a creative life. Can you leave if you don't want to? But remember, after a few years you come to know that nothing is happening in life, then you will have no choice but to continue.


 PERMISSION


It is in your hands to take the decision of living the creative life, so it does not matter what you thought and used to do before.

Creativity has been in this world ever since our ancestors have lived on this earth.


The history of art is more than four thousand years old. Talking about art, art is a divers subject. Why? Because there is a magic inside everyone, something special and precious. You already have creativity, just that, Needs to be released. As long as you are alive, you will remain creative. There is no limit to any special class of creativity society. It is present inside all of us. And this is the permission you want. Creativity inside you is the ticket for which you can start your creative life from today.
