You Have a Genius

Elizabeth Gilbert‘s TED Talk on Your Elusive Creative Genius is an inspiring and eye-opening talk on the expectations society places on artists and geniuses. Definitely 19 minutes worth everyones time.

“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.”Elizabeth Gilbert
