“Creativity means believing you have greatness” – Why ? – Don Charisma’s Prompt


I’m often curious as to why sometimes my readers don’t comprehend my quotes the same way that I do. Language, differing cultures and other factors come into play. There’s plenty of interesting conversations I’ve had – “devils advocate” is quite … Continue reading “Creativity means believing you have greatness” – Why ? – Don Charisma’s Prompt
