1 Being inquisitive, curious and inquisitive again; ravenous in increasing their knowledge on every subject, on everything.
2 Have the courage to try new things, even at the risk bankruptcy. Every great step forward begins as a sudden idea, an intuition. This does not mean you have to constantly go to the bottom, but learn to balance our luggage solutions routine, with investments in new solutions, not yet tested, seemingly illogical. Over time, the risk is worth the reward, at least in terms of experiential baggage.
3 Using intuition and heart in making decisions and produce ideas. Listen to your feelings, instead of the guru. Design simple, because simple ideas are also those who love and work more. Abandon the highways to follow the paths contain no indication, loving the unexpected.
4 Loving the game, because humor and fun are creative acts. So, stop lightening life, to be enjoyed in every moment, learning not to be live. We all have goals, needs and deadlines, but if you lived as paramount, are not life but death. When you love what you do, your brain relaxes and is able to produce more and better ideas. One of these ideas may be just what you're looking for.
5 Be yourself to make others willing to share what you feel and think.
People are emotional creatures and respond better to people who seem real, honest and open. Not only is it more interesting, but it can also be more convincing.
6. order into confusion, and discover the hidden meaning of life, events and information. The research, curiosity and critical thinking are key tools for the creative person. The information is for the brain what food is to the stomach. The so-called "creative block" almost always is the result of a lack of curiosity and new information, which as a result, nothing to say.
7 Be motivated by a task, a dream, a goal to be achieved, rather than prize money.

9. hypotheses and questions to find out what is real.
Create, make art with this or that technique, not the rules are fixed, but rules to recreate the time.

A rule that applies to all the gurus of success: if you do not know something through personal knowledge and experience, you must have the humility to look in the sharing of knowledge and experiences of others. But a grain of salt, because in the end if you do not go through the experience and personal knowledge, do not know at all.

11 Expand the boundaries of what is possible. There was a time when nobody would have even imagined being able to make money through telematic technologies. Now internet is a great platform multinational that goes beyond space and time, with great potential to shape to shape and extent of personal creativity. Instead of dividing the world into possible and impossible, it is better to just divide it, in tried and untried: in tried and not tried yet.
12 Be willing to experiment with new ideas and compete with others on the basis of the results. This is what is meant by "marketplace of ideas". This is what is meant by competition of enterprise. If you are afraid of being wrong or losing, creativity will suffer.
These characteristics, are certainly not common for most people.
