The ancient Greeks believed in nine muses, which according to them ruled arts and science. But if they would have praised a tenth muse that ruled matters of business and trade, maybe they wouldn’t have ended up bankrupt.
Creativity is the soul of entrepreneurship. This is the reason why we mostly focus on innovation and not on inventions. The former is easier because all it needs is a creative mind, while the latter needs a genius mind.
Thanks to creative thoughts, we can look at things in a different way, reorganize our resources and knowledge and provide simple solutions to major problems. However, there is always something that fuels the creative mind.
Entrepreneurship and business require a combination of hard work, great skills, a touch of luck and a lot of creativity. The latter is like god, it works in mysterious ways. Some people can feel its calling and others have to cultivate a creative mind.
Experience has shown that many successful entrepreneurs gained their status by providing products or services that people desired and liked. The point is that they did it by following their own calling. They had the same pair of eyes that each of us has, but the ways how they tackled problems were unorthodox and daring, and here they are. The value of their companies can reach billions and they inspire millions of people.
How do they do it?
In order to live a creative life that benefits society too, you have to first imagine all the things that you need and desire. These are the things that would have a positive impact on a larger community or even the world if you dream big. Afterward, you must imagine how your world would look like if your dreams become true. It just a matter of visualization. There is no need to be left-handed, bite your nails, or have a migraine in order to be creative. You need precise visualization and unceasing knowledge.
