  3. Everyone is born with tremendous capacities for creativity .
  4. When they are very young, kids aren't particularly worried about being wrong .
  5. We are all born with tremendous natural capacities and we lose touch with many of them as we spend more time in this world .
  6. Being in the Element & especially "in the zone" doesn't take energy away from you; it gives it to you!
  7. . Too many people never connect with their true talents
  8. Instead of asking "How Intelligent Are You?” We should be asking … "How Are You Intelligent?"
  9. One of the surest paths for finding the Element is to understand the intimate relationship between creativity & intelligence.
