Why you should desire the power of a creative inner circle

I can still remember the effect the movie Fast and Furious 7, had on me. Most of the people I knew that were aware of Paul Walker death before the shooting of the movie was completed were emotionally connected to the tribute at the end of the movie.

When I remembered the movie recently, the power of creativity came to my mind as I thought, if the producers of the film had not being creative with the technologies they used in modeling Paul's face, the movie might not be here today.

Ask a creative man what is impossible and he will tell you "with God all things are possible".

"For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall". - Psa 18:29

John Maxwell in his Leadership Bible listed creative people as one of the criteria to look for when developing your inner circle.

There was a time my friend and I was wowing about the Google company, for the big online empire they have succeeded in building. My friend said they made his life easier, and I can say that for myself too.

Thinking of it, I do not really expect less from Google, with the way they invest in their ambassadors, it is obvious they are opened for greatness.

Facebook is another company that is graciously fulfilling its mission. With the products they have bought and invested in, the company will soon be in charge of most of our online communications.

One interesting fact is that both Google and Facebook shares the story of key persons who came on board at one point in time and turned things around.

Let us consider this verse: "And the Lord said, behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do" Genesis 11:6

This verse is very powerful as it talks of inner circle, imagination and the power of agreement.

How do you get people to agree with you? The answer is: Do you have a purpose and a vision your inner circle can relate with?

Mark Zuckerberg wants to make people open and connected. He created Facebook, bought WhatsApp and Instagram with their creators working with him. This should tell you something.

When you have the vision of want you want, don't be rigid, work with your creative inner circle to birth it.
