"See the way the Creator does things and fall into line. Don’t fight the facts of nature.”
There are four sides to every creative endeavor the spiritual, the mental, the emotional, and the physical. The beginning of the idea is first and foremost spiritual and has a lot to do with the idea or thought seeing the light of day. Remember as a man thinks in his heart so he is. The heart is the spirit man. But that which is spirit is not seen, and is eternal. As an idea or thought or seed it is then impressed in the mind and eventually expressed in the physical environment as a tangible thing. But suffice it that there is a transition between the emotional state and the manifestation of your desire physically speaking. How enthusiastic are you prior to your desire been birthed? This is the completion of the given thought cycle. But how do I know this. Well, let go to the example from the Scripture of the creation of man by His Maker in the Book of Genesis (Genesis 1:26, 31, 2:7)
God conceived an idea … “Let us create man in our own image after our likeness.”
What does it mean to conceive?Conceive1. To become pregnant with (offspring).
2. To form or develop in the mind; devise: conceive a plan to increase profits.
3. To apprehend mentally; understand: couldn't conceive the meaning of that sentence.
4. To be of the opinion that; think: didn't conceive such a tragedy could occur.
5. To begin or originate in a specific way: a political movement conceived in the ferment of the 1960s
Ideas could be conceived on different ways. You can conceive an idea by the reason of the fact that you are a thinking being. You have the ability to think, feel and act. Thoughts can also come to you through your intuition, gut feeling or hunches as the case may be. Either way these are formed in your inner man or the subconscious. You need to control what you want to think about.
Conceiving ideas--creating something—is what pays, in sculpture as in all else. Mere handwork is worth only hand wages.
God believed in His idea … “And God formed man out of the dust of the ground.” Remember faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Believe1. To accept as true or real: Do you believe the news stories?
2. To credit with veracity: I believe you.
3. To expect or suppose; think: I believe they will arrive shortly.
Having conceived an idea or particular line of thought is not enough. You have to believe that the idea is of value toward your desired outcome. Lack of faith in an idea is the reason greatest ideas don’t see the light of day. Faith is very important as it gives you the confidence to forge ahead. Imagine what happens if a farmer doesn’t know that his seed will germinate. He will either not plant it or he will be digging it out many days after it has been planted. You need to develop trust in the hope that what you desire to achieve is possible. The act of believe requires imagination, expectation and great courage. You’ve got to put your faith to work through determined and persistent action.
God achieved by taking action … “And he breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life and man became a living being the form he created (Man), and Man became a living soul.Achieve1. to bring to a successful conclusion; accomplish; attain
2.to gain as by hard work or effort: to achieve success
Source: "achieve." Online Etymology Dictionary. Douglas Harper, Historian. 02 Dec. 2014. <Dictionary.com http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/achieve>.
Action always and stump trumps inaction. Action that you’ll do all that it takes to work on yourself and your environment so as to realize your dream. Imagine if you have all the knowledge as per how to cook but never cooked. What will you use as evidence to attest to the fact that you can cook? Action is the discipline required to take you to your desired goal. The fact that you are ready to take action so as to get then result that you desire is paramount to any successful endeavor.
God evaluated his work … “And God saw everything He had made, and behold, it was very good (suitable and pleasant) …”Evaluate1. To ascertain or fix the value or worth of.
2. To examine and judge carefully; appraise. See Synonyms at estimate.
3. Mathematics To calculate the numerical value of; express numerically.
There is a Law of Life which states: "Whatever man can conceive and BELIEVE, man can achieve."
So I’ll leave you with these thoughts. Who are you? This is a question of your identity. What do you do and where do you do what you do? What result(s) do you produce in your chosen field? Whose life is impacted as a result of your efforts and what is the value that you bring? How can you be more valuable in terms of your products and services by accelerating the value you create to more people at a faster rate? Evaluation is the highest thinking skill. This is important as the ability to evaluate helps you to add value to an idea, concept or proposition so as to distill your thoughts into what is good, minus and interesting in the work at hand.
