Unleash Your Potential

Rate This

I had a hard time writing this week's blog entry. Not because there was a lack of interesting news. The medical stories out of Haiti are heart wrenching. The "behind closed doors" health reform compromises coming out of Capitol Hill are a good reminder of the differences between policy and politics. And, my online chat conversation highlighted the lack of awareness of the transmission and dangers of Hepatitis C.

Nevertheless, I found myself struggling to identify a topic where I could offer a unique perspective that was both inspiring for me and worthy of your time. My circuits were down. So, instead of fabricating a topic and trying to develop an angle that would be a yawn, I decided to write about the genesis of creative ideas because, frankly, I wanted to figure out what the heck happened to mine!

Where do "AHA" moments come from? "Where is a thought before you have it?" This is the question that Deepak Chopra asks his audience before launching into a complex explanation that weaves together biology, quantum physics, and spirituality. The simple explanation (for those of you who are not new age groupies) is that a concrete thought is housed in the brain. However, the precursor to a thought (the pre-AHA moment) exists somewhere outside of the brain and the body. Chopra suggests that this energy is the source of our creativity; it is our potential.

So, how does one tap into this potential and translate it into new ideas?
