He wrote in the area of the new thought movement and his publications included several hugely successful books on self-development including his most well known, Think and Grow Rich.

George Lucas: May the Force be with You… Life & Lessons

George Lucas WideIf you’ve never seen a ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Indiana Jones’ movie you’re missing out because love them or hate them, they are a prime example of what it means to create a product that is the best in its field!

Creation is an escape from the concrete world around us and if you can create an escape for all kinds of people, for the whole 120 minutes that your movie is on, you’re successful. If you can create that escape for much longer than that first year the movie comes out, you’re a genius. And that’s exactly what George Lucas did within his films.

Not only do the movies appeal to all kinds of people across generations, they also changed the face of sci-fi fiction. And that’s what ‘creating’ is all about – being innovative in a way that the people like.

As one of the most successful and well known American screenwriters, directors, producers and entrepreneurs George Lucas is at the prime of his field and has shaped the movie world for the inheritance of future generations. For these reasons I figured it’s about time that I bring him to your attention here at One Life Success. » Read more..

John Green on How to Make Things & Why (Video)

I’ll be honest, when I clicked on this video I intended only to view the first ten minutes. But as time progressed, I got absorbed in what Green had to say about the process of creation and came to realise that it went hand in hand with what we encourage here at One Life Success.

I’m sure you’re all aware that the book sensation ‘The Fault in our Stars’ was released into (English) cinema last week, but if your not I still recommend this video because the author of the book, Mr John Green, really captures the essence of creation in his talk about: why we do it, why we should do it and how we do it.

Whether you’re a writer or not, this video is inspiring for any person who wishes to challenge themselves creatively and get inspired by what it means to create. So grab a notebook and take a listen. What does creativity mean to you? How can you challenge yourself? Why do you create?

Regardless of its cost or point, I don’t think anyone could disagree that the world cup as a whole plays an amazing role in the ever increasing world bond we have. And it’s this world bondnwhich it creates, that inspires me and I want to talk to you about today. » Read more..
