I am excited to bring you another inspiration post. Today I am loving these principles for creative living by Justine Musk.
These are a couple of the ones that speak to me.
-You need the struggle to transform you into the person you’re required to be in order to carry out whatever you were born to do. Have faith in the process. The darkness is rich, carries its own rewards, and gives birth to light.
-When we’re kids, we get punished for being different. For being ‘too much’. We tamp ourselves down and shape ourselves to fit in. As an adult, your power is in your original point of view, so long as you a) have the courage to declare it and b) can make it relevant to other people.
-Cultivate fierce listening skills.
-Don’t think outside the box. That’s too easy. You need limits to chafe against; limits trigger and release creativity. So climb inside the box – and find ways to kick the edges way the hell out.
-Figure out your soul signature: a statement that crystallizes the essence of who you are and what you can be when you’re at your best. Live it out every day in order to communicate it to others. As Gandhi pointed out, your life is your message. Make it epic.
-Some roads are lonely roads. Walk them anyway.
This is just a couple of her principles you can see the full list here.
