How listening or reading interviews of people you admire can help you find your muse
"PEOPLE WHO MANIFEST THE QUALITIES OF MASTERY. THESE MODELS OF EXCELLENCE WILL INSPIRE YOU AND GUIDE YOU TOWARD THE FULFILLMENT OF YOUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL."
Interviews of people you admire or find interesting subject matter can help you unlock your creativity and inspire you to action. Thanks to the internet and the proliferation of digitized media, interviews from experts from all walks of life are easily available at your fingertips. Writers can gain inspiration and wisdom from the interviews of other successful writers and can use interviews as a valuable tool for subject matter.
From Charlie Rose to James Lipton, interviews of greats and legends can be found everywhere in this digitized world of ours. If you have always wondered how someone you admired managed to get to where they have gotten, you can probably find the answers in their own words somewhere on the internet. When you are looking to find your muse, reading or listening to one of your heroes own stories of their trials and tribulations can end up being a great source of creative inspiration for you.
When questioned by good interviewer, a person of recognition within a particular field can reveal many things about themselves and their particular fields that can lead to many new insights by the people who are watching and listening. They might reveal poignant facts about their life that lead them down the path that they choose; they might also give valuable words of wisdom to others who inspire to carry on their work. While many interviewees do end up being actors, directors or other types of pseudo celebrities, with diligence you can also find interviews of other greats in different fields such as science, engineering, architecture, business, literature, and politics.
Thanks to the internet, many of these interviews can be found with a few simple taps of the keyboard and clicks of the mouse. Even interviews of masters from the past can be found with the form of transcripts, or, if you are lucky, from old audio recordings. And, if the search engines fail you, you will be amazed at what you might find if you go to your local library and dig around a bit. And, if by chance the person you admire has never been interviewed, perhaps you can be the first one to do so.
