EP6: Show Notes

Ingrid and Inna muse over the question of where ideas come from.  The girls propose that “Necessity is the mother of all invention.” But they argue you have to be creative to invent something worthwhile that makes a difference and to do that you have to be aware. But beware of where your motivation to create is coming from as your ego can steer you in the wrong direction, sabotage your efforts and make you run out of ideas.

Take away from the episode:

  • Stay open to outside inspiration

  • Stay informed via books, magazines and documentaries

  • Use your senses to get inspired. The taste of a particular food, the look of a certain item of clothing or print, a certain song can and will send you on a creative journey

  • Get inspired by real life scenarios

  • Sustainable motivation that truly fuels creativity comes from the authentic self. It is the opposite of creative from a place of revenge, fear, lack and desire for control

  • Desire for money and fame alone, or constantly chasing money in a state of fear, will dampen your creative efforts and exhaust you

  • If you are not coming from pure and good intention that’s when ego operates your life

  • Avoid using drugs for motivation, inspiration or to avoid dealing with life issues. Face your issues square on and use any emotions they generate to create something beautiful and impactful in this world


 

3 ways to get inspired:

 

  1.  “Approach motivation” – presenting yourself with a problem and actively going to solve it

  2. “Spontaneously evoked idea” - an urge to act that comes about naturally

  3. “Transcendent idea” a silent knowing, an intuition that comes from deep within

 

Steps that foster creative problem solving:

  1. Pick a problem and write it down.

  2. Sit quietly and see the answers appear.

  3. Go about your day see if more answers appear or the answers you come up with get more refined and detailed.

  4. Journal at the end of the day about any answers you might have come across and utilized on your given problem.

  5. The answers are out there, they just have to be noticed and acted upon.

Rituals that connect you to the deep pool of ideas within you:

  • Journaling

  • Change up your environment when you are stuck; go for a jog, hit a concert, go on a date by yourself with a friend or partner

  • Connect with other minds, go to a coffee shop or a space filled with other creative beings.

  • Get the ego out of the way and let your authentic-self shine through.

  • Optimize your brain: eat healthy, exercise, foster loving relationships and stay away from recreational drugs which literally fry your brain.

  • Bring in a creative approach to making money while having a joyful and authentic experience.

  • Approach life with purity and good intention
