So what is the creative key to global change? In a nutshell it exists within self. Often  people equate creativity to art, fashion, film or writing when in fact creativity encompasses so much more than artistic categories. Think back to when you experienced your first desire to express yourself , what did that feel like for you ? Was it liberating, did your brain spontaneously play and ramble in a manner that felt like freedom? This particular brain buzz is , namely , your creative groove. An inspiring set of moments where your brilliance is on fire. There is no stopping you when you are in your zone. I love this feeling ! One of the reasons why I named my company Get Happy Zone.

In all actuality, we are born with a creative chip whether you exercise this chip or not is where your creative muscle flourishes or dissipates over time. The creative side of our brains represents, fresh ideas and connecting them to new forms or concepts. Innovation is carrying out these creative ideas via a strategic manner. So what does that have to do with global change ?

Today’s companies and leaders recognize the transformation age we are in (creative, empathetic age). Companies will not be able to thrive based on former armchair management but rather the use of the whole brain , with fluidity, speed and innovation as the success ingredients required to strive for competitive edge. In other words,  to be the leader of the pack and stand out amongst your competition, your service or product looks and/or feels intuitive, which is why Apple is so successful.

Now is no time to be shy about flexing your creative muscle. The time is now ! Break out your Crayola’s, camera, sketch book or that old recipe of yours and start celebrating your expressive side . Your creative ideas are an answer to a CEO, business leader or communities need for a solution . By linking your creative ideas to the needs of  global change ,we can begin to operate in a whole and organic manner. This is why collaboration will be so important as we move forward for healing and thriving, together.

My upcoming book, Get Happy and Create a Kick Butt Life! A Creative toolbox for the Life You Desire, shares insight for what I term as “linking”. In this Chapter you can expect to utilize your uniqueness and begin to activate your linking skills to the needs currently percolating in the hallways of world entities. It is my belief that the answer to recovering from a depression is to recognize the opportunities. In so doing, we can graduate from victim hood and take on new roles by defining your higher self . As your higher self is your heart exercising your authentic power.
