Welcome back to The Jason Goldberg Is Ruining Podcasting Podcast! Today, Jason has Adam Roa on the podcast and the two talk about all things related to creativity, igniting your creator self, dealing with lack of creativity, and following your heart and intuition when creativity seems far away. Being a creative person is a characteristic we all are born with so releasing it throughout our life should not be a difficult process.
“Everyone’s creative energy is completely unique and I don’t believe that there is anything more healing than your unique frequency and essence being allowed to express through you and out into the world.” – Adam Roa
Adam explains that being creative is a consequence of facing resistance from a certain situation; it’s a way out. For that reason, the creative process is sometimes draining and can trigger self doubt (“Am I really capable of doing this?”). But once you push past the self doubt you won’t regret it.
“Few people understand how much space creativity requires and creativity is the expansion of what your brain is able to put together.” – Adam Roa
In addition, Jason and Adam talk about what aspects of life help bring creativity to the surface. Self expression, self love, vulnerability, and even getting out of our comfort zone are all helpful for creativity. Being comfortable with discomfort requires being comfortable with yourself, and that’s already halfway there.
“The world is craving authenticity. We’re at a stage where authenticity has almost become dangerous because it’s got to a point where no one knows what to believe so people are grasping onto things and ideologies and dogmas that are causing harm to a lot of people on this planet.” – Adam Roa
