Deepak Chopra Video InterviewsFebruary 29, 2008
The joy in what I do is mostly creativity. I think creativity is an ecstatic impulse that we all have. And there’s nothing more joyful than having a moment of creative insight and actually creating . . . or rather manifesting or incarnating your creative insight into actual, physical reality. The struggle is part of the creative process, and it’s very enjoyable to have the struggle. Without the struggle, there would be no joy in creativity. The one thing that is not enjoyable is if you get attached to the outcome. And if you’re constantly looking for approval and you are not immune to criticism, then you are in trouble and you will continue to be struggling and never find the creative impulse.
