Some of the best art ever created came from people who were under influenced states of mind. There have been alcoholics and drug addicts riddled through the history of every field, and some of the most influential people ever have struggled with substance abuse. Rather than trying to figure out why they were able to create extraordinary things only under the influence, it is a more productive question to ask why they were unable to do so normally. There are a few important things people do not realize are necessary components to creating things:
Finding your zone
There is a state of mind that works differently for each individual, but all of them describe it similarly. When you are focused on one thing, you can zone out everything else and give all you have to that one thing.
Know your abilities. Many people believe that being great at everything would be the solution to all their problems. However, knowing what things you are strong at is helpful in narrowing down what you can do.
If you had a million dollars and spent every dollar at a different place around the world, no one would notice. No one would care, and nothing would change. However, if you spent that million dollars in one place, you could make a difference. Much in the same way, creating spectacular things requires setting limits and making yourself work within the boundaries.
