#23 in my Creativity Quotes email series: Brendon Burchard


It’s Creativity Quote time again and this week’s gem is from the inspiring and irrepressible champion of creative mavericks, Brendon Burchard.

Brendon Burchard Creative expression quote

I love this idea, and I wholeheartedly agree with Brendon on the link between expression and life satisfaction.

In fact, I’m convinced that the expression of our creative spirit is vital to feeling whole, fulfilled and happy.

Because I believe it’s one of the reasons we’re here, an essential part of our life purpose.

We all have something unique to offer – a rare and valuable blend of our gifts and talents, our history and our desires.

And when we are expressing what we’re here to do, what we’re born to do, it feels like we’re in the zone, in that wonderful flow state.

We feel aligned with life – and that’s a nice feeling.

So, I believe that the incentive for expressing our unique creative gift is that it feels so good!

Most of the time. 😉

Admittedly, the creative path can be a bumpy one, which is why I’m so passionate about offering support.

But despite the wobbles, those of us on the creative path are drawn by that ‘something’ within us, that’s calling to be shared with the world through the unique filter of us.

We know or sense on some level that this expression is essential for us to feel fully alive and aligned.

And the payoffs for facing the challenges are those lovely, life-enhancing feelings of fulfilment and satisfaction.

The sheer delight of expression for its own sake.

The pleasure of creating what we feel inexplicably called to offer the world.

The magical difference it makes to our lives when we give the gifts we’re here to give.

Or as Brendon puts it, “the grand amplifier of satisfaction.”

These musings and the quote above were inspired by Brendon’s thoughts on creativity in his insightful book;

Brendon Burchard The Charge book The Charge 

Activating the 10 Human Drives That Make You Feel Alive 

He also cites creativity as one of the essential ingredients of a rich and fulfilling life, and makes a passionate case for being more creative in both your work and personal life.

There’s a whole chapter devoted to the vital role creativity plays in human flourishing.

And some of the other drives he explores are also useful in helping us find more ease and fulfilment in the creative process, e.g., change, challenge and contribution.

It’s a great read and an inspiring manifesto for Brendon’s High Performance living philosophy. You can catch more from Brendon here to see his enthusiasm and energy in action.

(I’ve been a huge fan of Brendon’s ever since I read The Millionaire Messenger a few years ago.)

So, if you’re ever in any doubt that what you have is unique and valuable and worth sharing with the world, take a look at any of Brendon’s books – his enthusiasm for life and for sharing our stories is infectious.

Here’s to that powerful, life-enhancing creative drive and even more satisfying expression,
