Take a stubborn person who never listens to outdated thinking, cynicism, or excuses, and you’ll have a creative mind who believes in potential and everything that’s right with the world.
Creative rebels aren’t bad people, they just refuse to follow dumb rules.
They like to see a point in doing something.
