  23. 23. Vincent Van Gogh Bipolar disorder — sometimes called manic-depressive disorder — is associated with mood swings that range from the lows of depression to the highs of mania. When you become depressed, you may feel sad or hopeless and lose interest or pleasure in most activities. When your mood shifts in the other direction, you may feel euphoric and full of energy. Mood shifts may occur only a few times a year, or as often as several times a day. In some cases, bipolar disorder causes symptoms of depression and mania at the same time. Bipolar disorder is a disruptive, longterm condition.

  27. 27. Experiences play one of the biggest roles in creative thinking. The more experiences you have, the more past ideas you have to pull into the present moment.
  28. 28. Fearlessness is another big factor of creativity. If you don’t think you’re creative then you won’t be. If you’re worried about success of an idea (or whether it’s feasible or whether you can make it happen on your own) then you’re cutting yourself short. Be fearless with your creativity and you’ll open more doors for new ideas.
  29. 29. Desire is an often overlooked factor of creativity that is vital to growing as a creative individual. If you simply don’t want to change things (or solve problems or inspire others or do new things) then you won’t.
