If you work from a place of creating what you want to create, you will always work from the true self.

Creativity loves boundaries. Boundaries make your creative ability stronger. It forces you to find connections.

Too much uncertainty is a fertile ground for all kinds of anxiety issues and other mental disorders, as our future itself feels like a threat.
Even if we do not become mentally unstable due to this fear of the unknown, it affects our decision-making skills, work performance, and happiness levels.
