A creative mind is both a blessing and a curse. It’s both a dreamer’s endless daydream and a visionary’s tool for changing the world. But that’s exactly the reason why creativity can be a good thing or a bad thing. What dictates the fate of a person who has a knack for creativity?

Initiative And Inspiration

Edgar Allan Poe once said, “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” What separates dreamers from builders of society is simply understanding that dreams are fleeting unless they are intertwined and applied to the real world. It’s one thing to be inspired, and another to actually come up with a plan and put it into action.

Plenty of sparks of geniuses are wasted with dreamers who are too hesitant to put their ideas into action. Be inspired, but be inspired enough turn creativity into creations.

Of Conviction And Change

Interestingly, it takes more than just planning and execution to put creativity to good use. A considerable obstacle in transforming the world around you with your ideas is a strong opposition. Sometimes, they’re worth giving an ear. Sometimes they’re merely opposing for the sake of bringing you down.

Being a good example to other dreamers and inspiring them into taking action helps immensely in bringing about a positive change in the world. Who knows how many good ideas out there are buried deep inside a creative person’s psyche.

Will It Be A Sustainable Source Of Income?

Perhaps one of the biggest reasons that hold back dreamers and creative minds is the idea of going hungry. Broke and destitute. Everyone knows that painters and scientific minds of yore suffered financial scarcity during their time. And their fame only caught up to them decades after they ceased to exist.

Fortunately, this isn’t a fate that awaits today’s creative minds. With the Internet as a versatile tool, it’s entirely possible to make a living out of a hobby. Passion can turn to profit with the right facilities and the help of individuals who can provide much-needed help.

One thing’s for sure, though. An idea isn’t going to be a source of income if it remains locked up and wandering inside a brain full of what if’s and maybes. Will it be a sustainable source of income? Who knows. Only creative minds with the initiative to put their ideas into action can find out.
