Elizabeth Gilbert on Your Creative Genius


Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love shares her radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a fascinating and thought-provoking presentation.

Maybe [artistry] doesn’t have to be quite so full of anguish if you never happened to believe, in the first place, that the most extraordinary aspects of your being came from you. But maybe if you just believed that they were on loan to you from some unimaginable source for some exquisite portion of your life to be passed along when you’re finished … it starts to change everything.
