This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
A Creative Person – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!” We are on Day 1665 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Ayn Rand, and it is, “A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.”
A Creative Person
Some people are very competitive when competing against others and need that external motivation to succeed. Although I do like to compete with others at times, I am more driven by my desire to achieve and excel within myself. I hold myself to a high standard and like to see if I can improve a little more each day, week, month, and year. It is the incremental changes over time that create an exponential mindset and level of achievement.
I don’t necessarily consider myself overly creative, but what I lack in natural creativity, I strive to make up by exceeding in several areas of my life. You can do the same. Whether you are driven to exceed the levels others have achieved or transcend your past accomplishments, you can excel and live a rich and satisfying life. Regardless, be motivated by your desire to succeed. Always remember that the minor incremental changes will allow you to achieve greatness.
The servant to whom he had entrusted the five bags of silver came forward with five more and said, “Master, you gave me five bags of silver to invest, and I have earned five more.” The master was full of praise. “Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!”
