Ego and excitement

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

But the ego will get you excited over the possibility of getting attention. You might believe this excitement is the same as desire. It is not. If you still create, even though you receive no acclaim, you are creating from your true self.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

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

Creation is really a transformation. You take raw materials and transform them. 

The pattern of creating is a cycle of birth, growth, death, rest, then birth again. It is always a forward movement.

You, as the creator, have a vision you have to pursue. You can't see what you're creating, only the materials.

Every active creator knows that originality is not worth pursuing.

With each creative rebirth, you bring into being a new version of yourself. It is powered by all the skills, experience, and knowledge you have accumulated along the way.

Connections are the core of creativity. However, fear and anxiety prevent you from making connections. 

You can only see your next move. Creation itself is fluid. 

Your creative work continues, even in your sleep. You are always processing, analyzing, connecting.
