Creating Your Own Success With What You Have Inside
Some years back, it suddenly struck me to note that almost all the things around me were the creations of people like myself. It is simply amazing to realize how much some people have changed the face of the earth and affected humanity.
Just take a minute and observe the things around you, starting from the clothes you are wearing. You can see the fabric and the beautiful colors and designs on it. This didnâ€™t fall from the sky, somebody or people somewhere made it so by applying their creativity.
Now take a look at your shoes, wrist watch, tie, jewelry, etc that you may be putting on. Did you notice the different patterns, colors, designs, etc in them? What about the books in your bookshelf?
Again, take a close look at one of them. Can you observe how the contents are intelligently arranged to treat the subject the book is about? You can equally appreciate the page layout, design, the beautiful and attractive illustrations and cover.
These are only a few examples, the evidence of men and womenâ€™s ability to be creative is in everything and everywhere. Humans, including you are created with the capacity to be creative. We have the inherent power to conceive ideas and be able to bring them to reality.
Having observed all these things, it appeared I was the only one left without any creation to point at. So I decided there and then it shouldnâ€™t be, for I must not fail to use my creativity to better humanity and create wealth.
Yes, absolutely no doubt about it, creativity brings you wealth and significance. The product of your creation is your marketable item to exchange for money. It embodied value which people are willing to pay for.
The more the demand for this item, the more of course your pocket gets fatter! Ask people like Bill Gates who have made and are continuing to make billions from their creations, they will tell you life couldnâ€™t be sweeter.
Even if you are in an employment, your show of creativity on your job will definitely take you to the top of your career where you will command higher pay and respect because by it you will either be making more money for your employer or helping them to prevent loss of money – and thatâ€™s sweet song to employers.
Now friend, the ball is in your court. You must answer a simple question with sincerity. Like I mentioned earlier, I faced up to this same question years back and the answer that came up helped me to take the decision to live the rest of my life being creative as much as I can.
And without trying to be boastful, I have recorded huge success both in my bank statement and my personality profile since then from applying my creativity. More importantly, hundreds, perhaps, thousands of people have benefited so far from my creations.
This is the question: what have you created so far? Before you answer this question, please know that creativity does not only imply the creation of physical products, intangible things such as service, work flow procedure or process, educational activities and curriculum, entertainment, games, music, etc are also products of creativity.
So what is your answer? This question is not to make you feel bad if you have nothing much to show, after all the majority of humanity are like that. Rather, it is to wake you up like it did me to the truth that you are a creative being. You can bring those ideas of yours to life.
You can create that system that has been occurring to you as the solution for that problem you have noticed plaguing the multitude of people in your locality. You absolutely can, otherwise your mind would not have conceived it!

Medicine For Your Heart
A husband and wife are getting ready for bed.
The wife is standing in front of a full length
mirror taking a hard look at herself.
“You know, love,” she says, “I look in the mirror
and I see an old woman. My face is all wrinkled,
my boobs are barely above my waist, my bum is
hanging out a mile. I’ve got fat legs and my arms
are all flabby.” She turns to her husband and
asks, “Tell me something positive to make me
feel better about myself.”
He thinks about it for a bit and then says in a soft
voice, “Well… there’s nothing wrong with your
