3 Creative Secrets You Should Really Try

To give birth to creativity, the mind needs to be given a chance to flow. Listed here are 3 creative secrets that I have never ever ever shared with anyone, until now. This is the same stuff that business plans, songs, movies, books, solutions, philosophies, and all sorts of inventions and ideas are made of. Probe your mind by trying these three things.
Spend an entire day listening to music you normally don't listen to. Talk about a mind-opener. Try it and you'll know what I'm talking about. Wells of creativity and fresh ideas will flow from you.Go to the library. Libraries are a gold mine of information. Take your time, walk slowly, and browse the shelves. Before you lies ancient knowledge and secrets that are so often overlooked in our present digital age.  The best thing is all of this information is FREE! Centuries of the world's most valuable information at absolutely no cost.Have a brainstorming session. Gather a friend or two (or more) and share your most creati…

Newer Homes, Bigger Homes

The sequester is a major negative for government spending, and higher taxes may slow consumer spending. But the US housing sector is primed to be a shining star for economic growth this year. New housing project starts rose 0.8% to 917,000 in February. Building permits increased to 946,000- the best in 5 years. That's not all. The size of these new homes are also increasing.

According to the US Commerce Department, the median size of a new home started last year stood at a record 2,309 square feet, surpassing the previous high of 2,259 in 2006.Even more important, since a bigger home usually requires more materials and labor input, the combination of more homes and bigger home size should add to economic activity and payrolls this year.

The numbers are already talking. Residential construction added slightly to 2012 gross domestic product (GDP) growth. Construction payrolls started increasing again last summer and are rising at a 30,000 monthly pace over the last 5 months. The avera…

The Price Is Right

Where there is a price there is value. If what we want came easily, we wouldn't appreciate it. Therefore, it's only right that it be earned or paid for. In 1776, American Revolution writer and patriot Thomas Paine wrote:

"What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; 'tis dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated."
Of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, 5 were captured and tortured by the British. 9 died in the Revolutionary War. 12 had their homes either locked, broken into, or burned by the British. 2 lost their sons in the war and 1 had 2 sons captured. For the signers of the Declaration, the price of freedom was high. 
Christ and His disciples' lives were in much more danger. Christ is the ultimate example dying an unimaginable death to give eternal life for all who believe. My point is…

Yams For Thought

YAMS: You Achieving More Success. I just made that up! Pretty cool, right? That came partially because I am starving at this very moment...

Take some YAMS for your mind. All of them stem directly from a Creative One's Session led by award-winning recording artist Antonio Neal held last year in Smyrna, TN. This guy is a wellspring of creativity and innovation. If you're ever in the Memphis area, you definitely want to be somewhere near him!

Enjoy your meal and drop me a comment!


Never compare yourself to anyone else. You're an original. In everything you do, people will love you and people will hate you. Focus on those who love you.What's wrong with your creativity? What's wrong with your style? What's wrong with the way you see the world? NOTHING- God makes originals.If you wake up every morning and aren't exciting about you, then why should you expect others to be?Spend an entire day listening to music you don't like, it'll change your life.
