7 Ways To Stop Being Brainwashed and Cultivate Creativity

Elon MuskThe older I get, the more books I read, the more people I meet, the more I realize… Books, mentors, teachings are all UBER IMPORTANT: to get inspired, to broaden your horizon, to grow and to learn. However it is even more important to cultivate your own creativity, question all your read and hear, develop your own opinion while stay open minded.

I have found these 7 ways work best for me to stay creative and grow and evolve.

1. STOP watching TV!  Just STOP!

Donate your TV set. The only thing I recommend is independent documentaries. I love documentaries disclosing truth  about food industry, big pharma, biographies of luminaries, business insiders and some others.

2. Read MORE books!

Biographies, self-development, personal growth, natural healing, health and wellness, metaphysics, eastern/ Oriental medicine just to name a few.

3. Attend personal development seminars.

If you have read my posts before, you probably know that I am a personal-development seminars junkie. My journey started with my biggest mentor and a role model, Mr. Tony Robbins. You don’t know what you don’t know and the best way to challenge yourself and discover something new about yourself and go to the next level is to completely immerse yourself in the environment of like-minded people at the event.

4. Meditate.

Quite your mind. Search for answers inside. All you need is within you already.

5. Eat less.

A lot of the times we numb our emotions with food. (I am not even mentioning other substances) When you feel uncomfortable, that’s when your most growth will occur if you process your emotions and listen to your inner voice instead of numbing it down.

6. Keep a journal.

Write as much as possible. In our electronic day and age we stopped using our creative abilities by writing things down, contemplating, journaling. You will be surpassed what you will learn about yourself by simply taking 10 minutes a day to write your thoughts down.

7. Pay attention to the signs.

Universe  constantly sends us signs in forms of people, opportunities, conversations, etc. Pay attention. Be present. That exact moment you were staring at your iPhone was an opportunity of a life time, but you missed it distracting yourself with social media.
