The best innovators and creators will always attest to living out of their imaginations. They do not merely depend on their eyes to come up with a new thing. For Leo Khusro, formerly known as Leo Frost, creativity is about imagining a desire, making that leap that leads to extraordinary possibilities. This seems to be the winning formula, when you consider the fact that his work has been recognized by Hypebeast, GQ Magazine, ESPN, TMZ, Forbes, Bleacher Report and more.
Leo Khusro’s clients include sports superstars like Justin Jefferson, Joe Burrow, J’marr Chase, Antonio Brown, Danny Green, Cole Anthony, Azeez Ojulari, Patrick Surtain II, and Clyde Edwards-Helarie. Being creative comes with many ups and downs and a high risk of failure. You have to be vulnerable to share your art, and willing to take the risk that what you create may never see the light of the day. Engaging in the creative process is a great confidence builder because you discover that failure is part of the process. Once we see failure as something that is survivable, and something that helps us grow, and that it makes our work better, we can release the fear and try new things even at the risk of failing.
Leo Khusro believes that by being creative, you can skyrocket your career. It’s that simple. Having only brilliant ideas is of course rarely enough to succeed, but it’s definitely the best start. An important reason to develop your creativity is to give additional meaning to your life. You are here on this planet to grow, connect, enjoy and create. The current of creativity is like a river finding its sea. It always leads us to bigger waters. So even a small creative project might open us to whole new possibilities. We never know where it might lead. Being creative helps you become a better problem solver in all areas of your life and work, says Leo.
Good people learn from better people, and better people learn from the best. You can’t develop your creativity when you’re surrounded by those who keep discouraging and distracting you. So, have some real talented people around you and learn from them. This is not only about surrounding yourself with talented people; it’s about knowledge. Don’t limit yourself. Always study and experience a variety of new things. This can propel your creativity forward, says Leo. He never thought he would be a professional jeweler. He found out that his passion for jewelry making stood out above everything else, but he had no actual connections to start this venture.
Leo Khusro’s imagination was always his golden pathway to prominence. With an innovative mindset and crafty hands, self-actualization was an eventual outcome. He says you have to believe you have an amazing mind full of thoughts and ideas. You need to express them. Tell them to others and see what they say. Some of your ideas may seem funny to you, or inappropriate, but that doesn’t matter. It’s been said a man is as big as his/her dreams. So, don’t stop dreaming and when it’s time to give shape to your dreams, express your best approach.
When you’re trying to find the solution to a problem, thinking creatively opens up the possibilities. You look at the situation from different angles. Oftentimes, people get stuck on solutions that they’ve always used in the past. While it might still get the job done, it could be done better if it was more creative. That’s how Leo Khusro gets unique ideas and how innovators set themselves apart.
