Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Chicago has spent three decades researching the lives of creative individuals to uncover their motives and specific traits that contribute to their behavior. His most recent books outline in detail the personal commitment that is adhered to by creative individuals. Their passion and consciousness drives them to retain a more rewarding and happy life.
These types of creative individuals spend their time specializing and studying the disciplines of martial arts, yoga, and sports that rely heavily on commitment and understanding. It is theorized by Professor Csikszentmihalyi that evolution can be influenced by human consciousness and the desire to solve increasing complexities in life.
