10 Traits of Highly Creative Achievers

4. Lead with their heart.

Highly creative achievers tend to be anti-establishment.

They view bureaucracy as something which stunts their creativity and serves only to dictate and limit their behavior, their full expression and their potential to have a significant impact in the world.

They are often considered non-starters because they will not go by a rule, as they prefer to lead from their heart and not their head.

They are more interested in people than status, and choose to work in ways that serve the larger whole rather than only serving to empower of the establishment itself.

8. Fickle.

Because creative achievers are open to new experiences they tend to be divergent people. They are non-conformists, are impulsive, demonstrate low levels of agreeableness and can also be low in frustration tolerance.

They are often misperceived as aloof or unreachable, but they simply tend to be fickle and extremely independent in their thinking and approach to life and business.

Highly creative achievers are not fickle to be annoying.

Their minds are constantly in overdrive, and for this reason they change their minds quite often while in, deeply engaged, in the creative process.

9. Eccentric.

Creative achievers are akin to mad scientists. In reality they are creative geniuses.

They are unique, emotionally intense and passionate which allows them to fully immerse themselves, and even lose themselves for a time, in their work where they lose track of time and space.

They make use of repetition knowing that the more times they experience a unique trigger in association a particular emotion the stronger that association becomes.

Ultimately all aspects of creativity are disorganized and difficult for outsiders to comprehend.

Creativity is associated with an openness to experience, inspiration, hyperactivity, impulsivity, rebelliousness, critical thinking, precision and conscientiousness all working together in tandem. It is this perfect storm of contradicting traits mixing at once which makes these achievers seem eccentric.

7. Work independently.

Creative achievers are deeply connected with their authentic nature and ambitions, which inevitably leads to their independence, growth, happiness and wholeness.

They do not avoid challenges or struggles, as they see struggle as the very thing required for their growth. They do not walk paths which lead to weakness, conformity or regret.

Creative achievers work independently and quietly, allowing their success to do the talking.

In the pursuit of their personal freedom, these people independently discover their destiny.


50 Entrepreneurs


is like 50 monkeys jumping on a bed, one falls off and…:-)

Point being:

Which Entrepreneur do YOU agree with?

Is most likely the one YOU are like!

If you are not sure…

Its imperative that whatever you choose to do, that you enjoy it so well, that you will do it REGARDLESS of what comes your way.

There are a few in the video who do not MENTION that…

And i label them BUSINESS PEOPLE!

NOT Entrepreneur’s!

See if you can spot the difference! ūüėÄ

(This video is added to Job 22:25’s playlist called Advice?) ūüėÄ

For take any and every advice with care…

Many have re-invented the wheel and made some really awesome stuff with it (look at¬†¬†https://psalm1127newsinfotechministry.wordpress.com/2017/10/11/mit-researchers-reinvented-the-wheel-turning-any-bike-into-an-electric-hybrid/¬†as a FANTASTIC example!) and then there are those who thought it was a ‘re-invention of the wheel’, yet SO NOT! (To me Foursquare is a great example of that! (for i heard¬†about Foursquare, how it was being used, and i thought it was AMAZING…would have went nowhere near Foursquare without THAT intro (haven’t till today anyway, just for the link, for i do not have THAT many friends and the Starbucks app! (learned about this through another app that talks about popular apps…where is that at by the way? Somewhere on my phone…found it!¬†Product Hunt!¬†(remembered it is on my phone how? Psalm 112:7 again! ūüôā Product Hunt is one of the profiles Psalm 112:7 follows on Twitter!)

Point is, with Product Hunt found out that the Starbucks app is a great way to pay your friends back! (for i would prefer 4 frappaccino’s verses $20! :-D) and if my best friends knew that?! and showed their love for me like THAT! :_D (they would go down in history as a friend for life! (well one who really knew me, anyway!):-D just the $20 added to my Starbucks account would be heaven! A quick delivery/order, pick up, etc! And the app had something about stars??? Which you need to have all your ‘followers’ to help you get the ‘free’ item (or was it a discount?)…

Anywayz! ūüėÄ

Those are TWO examples of what people may have thought to be the regular same ole’ stuff, yet were not!

Then there are those who make something nowhere near what others do (for the public an example of that would be Facebook) for there were others like it on college campuses, it became so popular, we non-college attendees got to use it too! (a version was made for the general public) and i guess some spoke about Myspace in comparison, which is laughable, because it was already dead and so different the two were and still are!

I went nowhere near fb…i was dragged there reluctantly because of my uncommunicative son…so i have maybe 2 or 3 other aborted profiles on fb…

I decided to stay on fb the last time (years ago) due to the surprising number of friends i found through gaming (to me, a big key¬†to FB’s success (that many do not speak of much!) and thru LIVE participation in a game i use to play called Castle???? something, it has dragons in it, and is a major reason i stopped playing it too! (back then i didn’t like how they treated the poor dragons (for i was a fan of Dragon Riders, etc back then) as a Christian, i didn’t like it for obvious reasons…yet i still get nostalgic over the ‘friends’ i had.

All of this points to what Zuckerberg and many of the other Entrepreneurs say in the video:

STICK TO YOUR GUNS!  No matter what!

I’ll elaborate on what they said, with…

If you find yourself doing something that you want to stop doing?

Then you just haven’t found the right one yet ūüėÄ


The 3 Stages of Powerful But Simple Leadership

January 12, 2016

We all know simplicity when we see it, and we recognize its value — especially in the world of design. But that doesn‚Äôt make simplicity an easy thing to pull off.
Just as it’s tough to achieve elegant simplicity in design, the written word or other creative pursuits, it’s tough to achieve simplicity in leadership — a talent which eludes many of us.

It‚Äôs easy to be complicated but a lot harder being simple enough to get a whole room to just get it.
ask creative professionals worth their salt, and they‚Äôll acknowledge the difficulty of keeping things uncomplicated. The same goes for your own leadership tactics. Lean into that Stage 3 mentality and accept that clarity requires significant effort.

recognize that to create your own best practices for simplicity in leadership, you have to set aside the time to think about it on your own. 

don‚Äôt just be hyper-observant, drinking in the examples of great leadership you see in the world around you. Be hyper-willing to disrupt the norm and create your own best practices for simplicity in leadership. It‚Äôs an art, and something you must practice…


Why Every Leader Needs Mental Toughness


when we see leaders who display an above-average mindset, coupled with strong will and the ability to transcend insurmountable odds, we refer to that remarkable cadre of skills as as mental toughness.

Mental toughness has been described as the¬†‚Äúability to work hard and respond resiliently to failure and adversity —¬†the inner quality that enables individuals to work hard and stick to their long-term passions and goals.”

Steve Siebold, mental toughness expert and author of 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class, teaches that a person of average intelligence and modest means can become world class by implementing the thinking, habits and philosophies associated with this principle. Vince Lombardi believed that mental toughness was one of the most important leadership skills you could attain.

If you’re a leader¬†and want to become more effective,¬†know this: Mental¬†toughness is¬†a fundamental¬†skill set, and the magnitude of your success depends on it.

1. It creates a winning mindset.  

Thinking is the primary filter for every experience that you have. Mediocre thinking promotes an equally low standard of performance and results. A winning mindset (i.e. the thinking, habits and philosophies of elite performers) however, transforms the landscape. It unlocks the unlimited potential to create, influence and generate outcomes that activate success.

the real key to excellence in both sports and business is not the ability to swim fast or do quantitative analyses quickly in your head. Rather, it is [mindset] mental toughness.”

Make no mistake: Leadership success depends on the¬†non-negotiable¬†ability to seize¬†a profoundly powerful mindset —¬†the mindset of a¬†champion.


Leadership is not fundamentally focused on winning and celebrating success. Leaders know that tough times come with the territory. Delving deeply into the trenches, grappling with hardships and doing whatever it takes to succeed is par for the course. They welcome obstacles and uncertainty for their potential to make them smarter, more agile and resilient.

Psychologist Angela Duckworth refers to the ability to thrive during adversity as grit. Her research has demonstrated that it’s a true predictor of success, even more than cognitive and technical skill sets.

One of the exceptional¬†hallmarks of¬†mental toughness is that it helps¬†leaders to reach for their “why.”¬†This is especially¬†important¬†during difficult times —¬†when¬†commitment may wax and wane. The internal drive¬†to achieve¬†goals despite¬†setbacks is what distinguishes the world class¬†from average performers.

3. It provides the courage to challenge the status quo. 

(booyah! :-D)

innovation. Elementary¬†to the exercise of¬†leadership, they signal forward movement and progress, rather than a wanton¬†commitment to archaic principles and practices of the past. ¬†(the way Christianity/Church has been….traditionally, EXPECTED…)¬†…the¬†whole premise of mental toughness is built on¬†the willingness¬†to face¬†fear, take action and thrive in the midst¬†of adversity, courage is a leadership imperative. It would be difficult, perhaps even impossible to lead without the¬†willingness to encounter turbulence¬†and face the unknown.

Courage allows leaders to flourish¬†in environments that constantly change. It also emboldens them to¬†take on¬†new opportunities for learning and growth. A catalyst for¬†healthy self-esteem, it also helps leaders to¬†effectively¬†navigate stress, conflict and crises. Simply put: Mental toughness is an unmatched mechanism for growth. (because it is something one CAN LEARN (in Christ we call it FAITH and TRUST¬†in the Lord…qualities that are acquired by EXPERIENCE…experience is only acquired by ‘stepping out on faith’, risking oneself for Christ…by Standing Up for truth, honesty and love (1 Corinthians 13:4-8) )
