Too often we may think of creativity being a trait shared only by successful painters, musicians, writers, and other artistic people who are able to produce artistic works. But within each of us are powers of imagination and creativity waiting to be discovered, unleashed, and shared. It seems we think too often of creativity having to be some great masterpiece but creativity encompasses many things. It can as simple as making a beautiful flower arrangement, cooking a gourmet meal served with elegance, crocheting a pair of baby slippers, decorating a room in your home, landscaping a yard or planting a garden, making a child’s toy from wood.
Our simple accomplishments can bring a sense of pride and satisfaction. And that satisfaction may not be any less than the satisfaction felt by a great master artist of the past. If we believe we can create a world of possibility, a world of abundance, a world of vision, then it can happen. It’s our choice, it’s about attitude.
A Blogger friend and fellow amputee, Michael had this inspirational video today on his Blog and I wanted to share it, also. It is a little long, but humorous and well worth watching as Boston Philharmonic Orchestra Conductor Benjamin Zander shows what a world of possibility is.
Benjamin Zander – From Pop!Tech 2008
The only conductor to ever lead the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, Zander is a prophet of human potential and an unrivaled champion of joie de vivre. Watch as he helps unlock the boundless potential of a 15 year old cellist and teaches the entire Pop!Tech audience what it means to live in a world of possibility.
How is your world of possibility?
